What just gets me is don't fly commercially. I can fly it, but if I sell the video of the footage the FAA will have a fit. Will this non sense ever end.

There are a lot of guys that have followed the FAA rules and worked many hours to obtain commercial pilots licenses to do aerial photography. They have studied, passed tests, take currency courses and know the rules. They follow the rules because failure to do so means that they loose their meal ticket.

So how do you think those guys feel when everyone with a christmas quad wants to take the work they are doing and don't want to follow any rules? You want all the jobs and none of the rules. Do you think that it is going to be safe under all those christmas gifts?

Bottom line, I can see some kind of commercial UAS license is coming and likely an amateur FPV license.

It is very nice to see the FAA publish something like this even if all the details are not enforceable at the moment.

Upon reviewing the vid earlier today, during a cycle about 15mi in distance this aft I had to LOL, Cammon, UNMANNED AERIAL SYSTEM? is this for erf'n real, its a dang "DRONE TOY" you get for christmas unless your some rich kid who wants a ten k$ rig.

Under faa rules a common kite is a UAS. Thing that is totally out of line is that everyone who will get one of these WILL fly around and over people. I visited the local hs at the beginning of my journey, one sales person was demo'ing a micro quad, I mentioned the faa vid and the girl who was waiting for the sales person to begin said she also heard about the faa thing. I then joked how he could not make mony with the micro without clearance from faa hq.

The FAA concerns are centered on AIRWORTHINESS and Pilot competence predominantly, not much else to do with "toy quads" what a joke.

There's a loophole to doing avp by the way, you'll have to use your imagination to figure it out. These quadro too easy to fly hover things are ruining everything, because anyone can fly them, even a blind person, maybe you like it that way. Maybe the faa was there when all those kids trying 049 COX airplanes cut their fingers a few times back in the 70s.

off soap box.

Getting a commercial license to fly a quad. Well, if you spent that amount of time to do aerial photography with a drone how do you feel that FAA says you still can't fly a UAV commercially without approval from the FAA. And on top of that the 6 companies that were allowed to fly for aerial photography, the FAA said they only need a pilots license. So, don't run out and get the commercial license just yet.

Like I said it's oh so frustrating.

they would have a ton more respect if they determined all rc flying craft as RCAS in the public domain, "unmanned" doesn't that suggest they can be converted to carry a person? hehehe,,,,,,,,hoho.
