Makes you wonder how the idiots that wrote that stuff ever got a job

Lol! +1 It's written over a $5000 bottle of scotch and Cuban cigars, compliments of the American tax payer!

Well here's an idea . . .

What about flying under FAA part 103 ?

You can be up to 264 lbs and no registration or certification requirements.

FAA part 103

I do not believe you are correct about from airport. You might want to pull out FAR/AIM 103.17. No person my operate in Class A,B,C,D and within the lateral boundaries of surface area of Class E airspace. So, you can certainly fly from a cow pasture or your backyard if you wanted to. But you must adhere to 103.23 Flight visibility and cloud clearances.

Let's face it the FAA see's all these drone sales and they want a cut of it. Yes, they are concerned with safety. And as a Pilot, I'm glad to see the FAA step in a bit. But, like with all government they step in overboard and to heavy handed. What, amazes me how many people that have died in helicopters like in Arizona last year from when a news helicopter ran into another one. Where is the FAA on not letting helicopters from every TV channel chase every car chase.

Or my big bitch here lately is here in Dallas/Addison and hear all the student pilots from the middle east that can't speak a lick of english. When I hear the ATC clear a plane, and I swear the ATC had no idea what the hell that dude just said, and you will often hear that controller ask three times and then they just give and clear them to take off, promise you that they have no idea what his intentions are. Any way my bigger point the FAA should pay more attention to the Full Size GA.

Full Scale
since your subject being 103 ultralight then was not necessary to spell it out

Been flying FS my whole life and I like the acronym FS for full scale. The full scale community won't understand or use it because there is no need for them to talk about anything but full scale. For those of us that do both or talk about the differences between part or fractional scale and full scale it's an easy way to differentiate between the two.

You said "airplane" twice...

Now that "we" are FAA pilots...shouldn't we need a medical card, and report to the FAA when we crash our helis/plankers...Oops, I'm sorry...I meant drones?

No we don't. If they make us have a license it would be under the sport pilot license that does not require one. That is for planes that are under a certain weight which is around 1000 lbs. Now commercially making money that might be different

when we crash
r/c operation is by CBO S.C., so r/c to r/c accident is their issue
AMA does say report if incident happens
if r/c to f/s mishap then 100% FAA & NTSB get involved
