How high do you have to be for people not to hear it?
Welcome to the forum uk .
I guess it depends on how good of hearing someone has.
Lots of variables... trees, open field, asphalt, sand. I would guess 200' it would not be real noticeable... who ya hiding from?
Pro's can smell it so be sure to only approach from down wind
Lol, I was flying above my local town centre and stayed around 230ft so as not to alert people.
230ft over a busy town/city should be quiet as the ground level noise will drown it out.
Down in rural Kent I can still hear it at 400ft and when testing at 1500 ft it was still there faintly when directly overhead.
I know you'll think I sound like an old woman, but flying over towns and people is not a good idea! Read the CAA regs., before you get the rest of us banned.
(If you're going to break the rules, it's not a good idea to post it on youtube)!
Hey old woman you are 100 % right, safety first ... From an old man!
Still air and you'll hear it a lot further than when there's a breeze.
Let him without sin cast the first stone...
Don't post this video on YouTube matey you might get a knock on your door, you can fly at 400ft in the UK but not over the heads of every person in your town, not being a kill joy but if your bird comes down on someone's head in the middle of your town nobody in the UK will be flying above 1 ft as they will ban them
Depends on what you are smoking.
In this area (see link), you can be at 394' and still hear the thing. I feel bad when I get morning shots and I run into hikers because I know they're not there to hear my quad fly.
And I'm not there to watch the hikers hiking.
Well now, I do live in San Diego so watching some of the hikers hike is a very...stimulating experience...
I and it only takes one very small bird flying in the wrong spot to bring your big bird down.
