    Anyone know if 3rd party liability insurance is available from anyone in the UK and if so what the premiums are.

    I assume when my bird is at home it is covered for the usual fire/theft stuff, but I would like to make sure I had at least 3rd party cover when it is flying outdoors.

    Cheers.

    Membership to fpvuk.org ( cost £15.80 p.a.) will automatically buy you £5000000 of public liability cover. It's easy to arrange and great value. Check out the link above for more information.

    I'm sorry edonovanl. I'm not following you. Where does the USA come into this?
    It's insurance for flying in the UK I'm looking for?

    I was just kidding with my UK buddies...no harm intended...

    The insurance situation here in the US sucks - I'm having no luck finding an independent liability policy for flying a drone as a hobbyist...
