Unregistered drones banned

Owners have been given 90 days from Friday to register their drones, the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) announced on Wednesday.

 

NBTC Secretary General Takorn Tantasith said the decision was taken to deal with the rampant use of drones in Thailand, while only 350 are registered with the Civil Aviation of Thailand (CAT). 

 

Takorn said owners of illegal drones should register them at the NBTC headquarters in Bangkok, its branches in many provinces, police stations and CAT offices.  

 

Failure to register them within 90 days from Friday could result in a jail term of not more than five years and/or a fine of not more than Bt100,000 or both. 

 

Takorn emphasised the complete ban on drones in the vicinity of the Royal Funeral of His Majesty the late King which is being held at Sanam Luang from October 25 to 29. 

 

The radius of the ban is 19 kilometres from Sanam Luang that goes as far as the border of Samut Prakarn, Nakhon Pathom and Nonthaburi provinces.

I had a dream last night; I was eating a giant marshmallow!  When I woke-up, my pillow had gone.

They were always banned as you need a license for any form of radio communication.

 

Wont stop the shops in Pantip to sell them though.

5 years in jail is a bit tough but then again it's not as bad as 10 years in jail just for smoking an e cigarette.

Amazing Thailand:giggle:

Spy cams basically if in the wrong hands

And a lot more......many reports out now that drones are now the big threat to watch out for in the battle against the terrosists. Bombs being dropped from above in stadia where big events are happening ....like football matches and all sports....any place where a lot of people are gathered....it's too horrible to contemplate the possibilities.

PS......and somebody on here says...."what a joke"....All I can say is.......protect us all....not so much from the bombers, but from the people who can think of nothing othet than that to say?

I'm going down to the beach to smoke a few cigs and fly my drone...

 

This is a country that can't enforce a helmet law.
