r/c is for amateur hobby & sUAV is for pros
Has nothing to do with amateur versus pros. It is about overregulation by the US federal government. The fools in Washington always do their best to make sure American companies and workers are "behind the eight ball" when we go up against foreign competition.

Before the FAA allowed the exemption for moves, many films were scheduled for production in less regulated foreign countries that were more favorable to sUAS and movie making in general. Pressure from Hollywood is the reason for the exemption. It was not promulgated out of FAA benevolence.

Even with the exemption, the requirements to film a movie using sUAS are onerous and completely unworkable. I guess you've never been on a movie set before revmix. The 500 foot separation from people other than the PIC and spotter is virtually impossible to maintain. Same with many of the other exemption requirements - unworkable.

We're going to get what we deserve in the end. We refuse to self police and the manufactures will sell anything to anyone as long as it makes money.

These cheap drones that the average general public willfully or through ignorance fly and utilize in either illegal or simply nuisance manner is going to be the end of R/C as we have known it for years. We're going to get regulated and I don't see the AMA being able to stop it.

Life was a lot harder back then and WE have all become soft and self involved in our own lives with a very short attention span of about 15 min.

Times have changed forever. Richard Nixon would not have been a crook in todays times. Now, the guberment just does what it wants and spins it under guise of 'for the good of the people'

I predicted the FAA would extort fees from people.

Over $1,000 for the TSA to do a background check (vetting) seems exorbitant and unnecessary. Smacks of McCarthyism. Secret boards to determine who is and who is not acceptable. Other than that, the fees seem reasonable.

"Kids" 17 can fly with or without a driver's license, need medical if no DL. Assume this is to make sure vision is adequate.

I disagree...

Smacks of govt. graft and corruption.....instituted by these political appointee "civil serpents".

These scum, who have no expertise in anything other than "raising" money for political candidates, are put in charge of these large govt. agencies...in return.

And they institute a series of regs. that has the ultimate effect of picking and choosing who can fly RC and for what purpose.

In the history of USA model aviation, no matter what such model discipline such modelers were "into", all innovation was by/due/from their ingenuity.

And NOT by some silly govt. entity...led by politically motivated fools...picking or choosing who can do what.

Seems?....

Unnecessary?.....Capricious, imo...

If that's their extortion demands....then I say that ransom can be written off one's federal tax return at a 100% rate.

There's your bux, you FAA political hacks....

High Cost of Flying.
I would say that part of the fees is to force the lookey loos to forget applying. A background check is not free. Do we really want every Joe blow flying these things?

In the grand scheme of things is a grand too much to ask? I don't think so. Isn't the machine gun stamp two grand?

If you really want to do something, you will figure out a way.

The machine gun tax stamp is $200 I believe...but that pales in comparison to ammo cost. Thirty rounds costs $15 and can be emptied in seconds. No thanks.

Similarly, these guys dropping a grand to fly a drone won't care about a little registration fee.
