Is the maximum take-off mass (MTOM) of your drone less than 250g?
Please ensure you read the guidance information at the bottom of the page to help you answer this question, as the accuracy of your answers will determine the accuracy of your results.
Because your drone is not Class C0-C4, maximum take-off mass (MTOM) is defined as:
The weight of the drone at any time while it is in flight, as defined by the manufacturer. Also known as the “flying weight”.
This information can usually be found in the drone manufacturer’s manual.
Essentially, this question is asking, does your drone weigh less than 250g when it is flying? If so, ‘yes’ is your answer.
Don’t’ have a drone yet? Or you haven’t started flying drones yet? Don’t worry, it’s free to complete as many times as you need. Just answer all questions in relation to the drone you intend on buying and how you plan to operate drones. Your personalised guidance will explain your results, so if you fall into a high-risk category because of the drone you’ve selected or because of the way in which you plan to fly it, you can adjust your plans accordingly and then complete this survey again to receive your updated results. Equally, bear in mind that if your choice of drone changes and/or if your intended drone operations change, then your results may no longer be accurate – therefore, you will need to complete the survey again to reflect your changes in drone and/or drone operations.
