Aaron, you overestimate mass intelligence. People are like sheep! Sure, there are some individuals who will take the time and considerable effort to investigate candidates. Most won't. They are too lazy IMO, and simply rely on the media for information. Kind of like how people here on RR post questions before doing a search.

I certainly agree, most will believe anything without question if it comes from their chosen party...

Which is very fortunate for TV networks like QVC that sell ice cubes to Eskimos.

Yeah it almost makes one want to give up on the masses. Sometimes, as one of the more englightened sheep, I'd like to evolve into a wolf. You know, profit on their stupidity.

If you can't beat the wolves, join em, thing.

But my moral compass...

Better to be an annoyed member of the herd than a wolf.

welcome to General Aviation
Model Aircraft Operations
An important distinction to be aware of is whether the UAS is being operated for hobby or recreational purposes or for some other purpose. This distinction is important because there are specific requirements in the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012, Public Law 112-95, (the Act) that pertain to “Model Aircraft” operations, which are conducted solely for hobby or recreational purposes. While flying model aircraft for hobby or recreational purposes does not require FAA approval, all model aircraft operators must operate safely and in accordance with the law. The FAA provides guidance and information to individual UAS operators about how they can operate safely under current regulations and laws. Guidance may be found at: http://www.faa.gov/uas/publications...raft_operators/

a private hobby org. wants to tell a city what & not to do

'However, as written, your legislation runs counter to the intent of the U.S. Congress, which made clear in the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 that model aircraft should be exempt from regulation. In restricting where model aircraft can fly, your legislation would destroy a decades-old, family-oriented, and community-based recreational activity.'

Congress passed such a law for hobbyists....

The FAA can't arbitrarily enact edicts that prevents the legitimate usage of "drones", no matter what political hacks head the agency....and Congress can't either....the constitutionality will have to be resolved.....

The FAA has now allowed the use of such aircraft for agriculture and real estate commercial purposes.

And Herr Huerta knows that....and that his tenure will be short-lived....

FAA Grants Real Estate, Agricultural UAS Exemptions

'Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx found that the UAS in the proposed operations do not need an FAA-issued certificate of airworthiness because they do not pose a threat to national airspace users or national security. Those findings are permitted under Section 333 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012.

FAA Ruled Continued...

In granting the exemptions, the FAA considered the planned operating environments and required certain conditions and limitations to assure the safe operation of these UAS in the National Airspace System. For example, operations require both a pilot and observer, the pilot must have at least an FAA Private Pilot certificate and a current medical certificate, and the UAS must remain within line of sight at all times.

I get the revenue angle. But, how would the FAA argue why they feel someones needs a pilots license to fly a UAV for money. But, not for fun. I mean the FAA would not allow me to go fly a plane just for fun without a license.

Another ? Do you think that someday the FAA will see how silly that is and change their policy?

The full scale AP guys that get put out of business by "drones" provide the FAA with revenue.

The "drone" pilots will also provide the FAA with revenue.

Flying toys for fun isn't putting anybody out as far as I can tell, so they just tell us not to do dumb stuff, or you'll get fined or worse.

Revenue and taxation.

And last and least, safety.

E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.
