Basically the same rules apply, but MUST REGISTER WITH NBTC, before flying, and actually a painless chore. CAAT flyer, is inaccurate, stating those wit...

Re: Drones/Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)

This is you standard size hobby grade quadcopter. Actually the one in vid is the CX-20, motor to motor dia is 360 mm. The XK X380 is almost 380 mm across. DJI Phantoms 2 / 3s, are 350 mm and usually the standard. And start at $500 USD. Much more expensive in Thailand, as prices above are USA pricing...

Re: Drones/Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)

Original rules were if over 2 kg, had to be registered. Which most are not, unless professional for photography, and in many cases, something professional would be a hexacopter, not the hobby grade quadcopters. Difference being the redundancy of 6 motor / props vs 4, and able to have a semi - contro...

Re: Embarrassing Farangs

I posted it to give you local expats a heads up only. 12 years visiting, so guessing he know some of you, and frankly, not the kind of person I'd want at my BBQ. 2 things I can't stand, thieves and liars, don't care what nationality. Who says it's OK for a Thai to steal. My rose tinted glasses broke...

Re: Proof of income for retirement visa

Also take what HD suggests as knowingly committing an illegal act if submitting a false notarized affidavit. If so, thank you for making it harder for the rest of us, when the numbers of those caught add up and they change the policy. I wish yanks had to verify, and I'm a yank. Also consider, this a...

Re: Huge number of police officers on Hua Hin beach today

Maybe others complained, when you possibly did not, and they are now taking action. One can only hope, now that someone took the time to appraise them of the scam.

They can't do it all by themselves. Police worldwide are public servants, but can't serve if not informed.

I don't want to get anybody in trouble so I would rather relay this info in a PM, but can a new member with 1 post receive PMs?
Would you trust a member with only one post ???
