CAA continues to prosecute FPV flyers

On the 23rd May 2014 the CAA successfully prosecuted an FPV flyer; Mark Spencer flew a quadcopter FPV over Alton Towers without permission whilst members of the public were at the theme park, he pleaded guilty to the charges against him.

The video had been posted on YouTube originally and has since been removed.

The total cost in fines plus a contribution to legal expenses was £550.
