    I am insured through membership of "FPVUK" Thats for £5 million public liability. That cost me about £8 for the year. I have also received a quote from "Protect my bubble.com" for gaget insurance. I have been told by them that my PV would be covered Under accidental damage in the case of a crash. And loss would be covered in case of a fly away.

    The quote was for £9.99 a month, or £109.89 for the year. Not to dear for peace of mind.

    PS this is in the UK

    That's really interesting - any excess on that policy?

    I have just had a look at the quote, and there is no mention of any excess.

    Hmmm, I'll have a search on them and see what people's claims experience with them is generally...

    Just double checked and there is an excess of £50. Sorry about that.

    Still reasonable for a total loss claim. Are they aware that the "camera" you're insuring is slung underneath whirling blades of death and regularly taken aloft upward of a couple of hundred feet?!?!

    I made them fully aware of the situation. But I thought for the peace of mind that wasn't bad.

    PS

    Thanks for your help this afternoon Sir Simon :D :D :lol: ;)
