Man Faces $9000 Fine For Using A Drone To Pick Up A Bunnings Sausage
” Some people will go to great lengths to get hold of a Bunnings sausage in bread.
A man who only wants to be known as “Tim” has admitted he was part of a team that flew a drone to pick up a sausage from Bunnings and deliver it to a friend waiting in an outdoor spa in Sunbury. Tim says it was all a bit of fun.
But the Civil Aviation Safety Authority is investigating the incident after a video was uploaded to YouTube showing a man piloting a drone to the Sunbury Bunnings carpark while he sat at his home.”
” The video has since been deleted from YouTube, however CASA spokesperson Peter Gibson said the incident potentially breached a number of drone regulations and may lead to a $9000 fine.
Breaches included use of a drone within 30 metres of people, use out of the line of sight and use over a populous area.”
