No Legal Advice Here
I offer absolutely zero legal advice. Anything I write/say is my opinion.

I pointed out references to find and view the newly passed law, not how to interpret it.

Knowing and following any law, in my opinion, is sound personal advice.

I've tried #9 for as long as possible but sometimes #2 seems the best option.

Hopefully more people will realize that sometimes opting for #2 adds value to RR and keeps the likes of Doublah here.

Keep in mind that feral cats only return IF you feed them.

Unfortunately this thread has nothing more to offer and OP should consider closing it so, unsubscribed.

Doublah
You are ridiculous!!! Mark, end this the garbage as it contributes to zero RC and just politics. No offensive, but I hate to admit HeliFreak is way more informative or interesting than EEinger or RM3. Mark, you have lost me!!!! You can say add them to your ignore list, but HF is more supportive for better info.
Doublah I don't read along and babysit the crowd and instead work full time developing RR software. Please click Attn:RR on the unfriendly posting patterns.

The ignore system works.

Thank you Mark
The ignore feature would be better if it made the person invisible VS being highlighted when there's a new post.

I understand this may not be possible .

spending time, paying attention

Sorry about that post that was all messed up. I was texting and driving. Oh that's right not supposed to do that it's just something else forced upon us by the government. The good news is at least I wasn't wearing a seatbelt

Part 107 is your friend (if you wish to fly FPV BLOS).

What about non-commercial in a small area... drone course racing, for example. Always within LOS.

Sec 336 will help you get your fix.

Ultralights up to 155lbs still don't have to register and can fly higher than 400ft.

But when your arse is strapped to it, the likelihood of doing something stupid is greatly reduced....

Actually, what most think of as an ultralight, a small simple aircraft with a motor on it, can weight up to 254 pounds, excluding floats or safety equipment such as ballistic chutes.

I’ve had my private ticket since 1984, though not currently active..... you won’t catch me jumping on an ultralight anytime soon ....

Why not? I fly one with G rating of +9-6 . That's better than most airplanes and to date none have ever crashed due to a structural failure and they've been making them since 1987 or so.

I got my private ticket in 1978, I have time in most types of airplanes, single, twin, biplanes and monoplanes, aerobatic planes both certified and experimental. I haven't flown much since my blood pressure started acting up, but I used to like flying anything that would get in the air. Over the years I flown seven or eight different ultralights. Like most airplanes, if they are built right and operated within their envelope, they are quit safe. The biggest problem with ultralights is that some people have an idea that they are just naturally good enough at everything that they can fly an ultralight with no or little flight training. Luckily for the ultralight community they aren't common. Take them out of the picture and ultralights have a pretty good safety record.

Last summer a friend need help assembling his ultralight that had been stored for a few years, so he could demo it for a prospective buyer. After a good check over he took it up for a half hour. When he landed he told me to take it up for a while. I had a blast. I sold my 7EC Champ this Spring, one of these days I may build or buy an ultralight just to get in the air once in a while.

Must NOT fly from a moving vehicle*
There goes the distance record attempts for RC models in this country.

Just like autonomous control. Back when Dave Brown was president and was part of the trans atlantic record, that type of activity was banned right after the record was set (look up TAM-5)

i miss my 7EC Champ. best fun airplane i ever had. cost almost nothing to fly and maintain, but i flew it 2 or 3 times a week. i used to have a r22 helicopter also, most fun over all because i could get in and out of almost anyplace. but it was the most costly aircraft i ever owned. 8k/ yr on insurance and one year i spent close to 18k in maintenance. after that i went over to experimental helis but never really felt safe in them. planes on the other hand, i had a glasair that i flew all over east of the Mississippi from Maine to Florida. made it from mass to flordia once in 3.5 hours on less than 30 gallons of fuel (great tail wind)
