Thanks Patrick,

For me it comes down to what quality of final product is required. Serious clients want aerial video that rivals what is achievable from a full size stabilized platform. Where the technology stands at this moment (and there is huge room for improvements in small camera stabilization) that is a tall order for something less than 30 lbs. for HD video. Not a problem anyway as the US isn't the only country on the planet.

True, but it is a shame not to be able to work in your own country.

Sounds like the proposed maximum weight will be something like 12 pounds/5 kilograms.

Torsten has been able to work within a 5kg limit, but I don't believe he is doing video.

Really good stuff Wendell. Congrats on the job. Regardless of what the initial splash of the new regs are, I tend to think they're will be loosening with some time. Biased toward those with the better skill and reputation.

Regulating these things is a new experience. With time waivers will be introduced. There are ways to make it happen sooner.

It could be interesting if COAs are required if the FAA was totally and utterly drowned in applications, with the media being suitably advised of the impracticability of the process. Excess red tape is standard fodder for the current affairs mob.
