What do you mean with "European Regulation" ??? It will apply to all other EU countries? like Hungary aswell?
In Italy, starting from 12/15/2019 all drones under 250 are compulsory insurance also as a hobby, in your country you have to inform yourself well, but starting from July 2020 I think so ...
Its not like the police comes to check your registration or license for a toy drone. They don't care... but sooner or later some annoyed neighbors may just call the cops and then they have to react :-(Nobody can police these laws, it’s impossible. Anyone can just pretend they didn’t know.
It’s already become a laughing stock in the UK, hardly anyone registered their drones and it’s not being policed. You’re right the police have got better things to do!
Is it different in Italy?
