    He hasn't posted any drone videos anymore in the last 7 months so it's probably a goner.

    Details now passed to CAA along with car registration number and link to the YouTube video.
    The Met police will have to pick this one up but with the video and the vehicle licence plate they should have enough evidence.

    Is EGR160 a airport?

    It's as good as - it is the City (Central) of London and is a CAA designated restricted area.

    EGR160 is one of the 3 designated restricted areas and where he was flying it was close to the Olympic village and City Airport. No insurance/PfAW and flying at night... :eek:
