    Oh and by the way "flight" is from the point it leaves the ground, you flight must start 50 meters away from people or objects not under you control and remain 50 meters away during the flight

    That is incorrect.

    The rules specifically except takeoff and landing.

    I'm not sure the FAA cares much about what happens in the UK, either

    it's 30 meters during take off and landing, but when does it count as having taken off Mike? And when does it count as landing?

    Are you sure? The last I read it was 50m *except* during landing and takeoff.

    I would suggest that if your target height was 52m then the time between starting the props and getting to 52m is take off and landing is the opposite.

    That's terrible kind of thing that makes me think twice about it all, can just imagine a 5d3 & 70-200 f2.8 taking a drink on a phantom or something lol

    You need something a bit bigger than a Phantom to carry an SLR.

    You were getting on for something like 10k for a drone that could carry an SLR the last time I looked - at which point, the SLR becomes the last of your worries. Although, I don't think there's anything that is going to be taking a 70-200 with it.

    So when you go on holiday and you plane cruises at 37,000ft then the time to climb is "take off" and the point it starts it's decent is "landing"? Because it's target maximum height is 37,000ft...
