Hi so some of us fly drones.and maybe mostly under 250gm.
My reading suggests these are still ok to fly without registering.
Do you agree with that conclusion ?

Whether or not you take out insurance being another matter.

I think its changed if your under 250gm drone has a camera then the drone has to be registered.

I did both, Flyer ID and Operator ID for a DJI Mavic Mini 2

From the CAA website

You do not need to register if you will only fly or use the following types of drone or model aircraft:


  • toys below 250g or in C0 class
  • those in C0 class with no camera, whether they are a toy or not
  • those below 250g with no camera and no class mark, whether they’re a toy or not

Take a look at the registration requirements for drones and model aircraft to find out if you need to register.

You must have an operator ID but not a flyer ID.

To be honest the Flyer ID costs nothing and you do pick up what you can and cant do with a drone so that if you get challenged you do have some knowledge, there is a test at the end but its multiple choice and you can look up the answers should you need to.
If your going to fly I'd recommend it.

I have both and public liability insurance
