Unbelievable !!
This needs more investigation.
Wondering where my Howth Harbour video has gone?

If I use the copter as a copter I don't need a licence. It is classified as a model aircraft.
When I attach a camera, it becomes a Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and it needs a licence.

The IAA rang me when I queried the licence requirement. I told them it was for purely recreational use. Once a camera is installed, a picture has a commercial value and it needs a licence.

I need the following:

Manufacturer's manual
Operator's manual (How I plan to use it)
Proof of third party liability insurance
I need to present proof of attending a recognised course. €750.00
I need to demonstrate that I can use the thing to IAA
Submit a fee of €1,098.00 for the first application.

Do I need a licence to walk down Grafton Street with a camera now?
Am I more dangerous or more of a public risk than people without the camera on board? I think I'm even more careful with my equipment by having the camera!
