|Otherwise must be smaller than 5kg, 3m and no noise restrictions on electric motors..? Pretty broad official specifications. The main difference between RPA and model aircraft seems the be whether the intended purpose is harmless fun or commercial purposes.
My dad used to load the WW2 replica bomber with a payload of sweets and bomb them for us to go find, within an official model aircraft area on official airshow days, he would still seem to be able to do that today with a drone if he was still around, and for sure he would be dropping a payload off for a big shark. It was fully his style, his favourite recreation was to drop big baits off into the deep at the cliffs in the transkei with a kite..
