If I am in the back yard.. and I take my RC heli and just toss it across the yard, not turned on.. am I flying it.. how about a Frisbee..

What if a neighbor sees me tossing a boomerang and he hates me.. he calls it in as me "flying in my back yard" and they see my RCheli that was also in the back yard but not flown.. then what.

I understand this is ridiculous BUT... this is WAY out of hand.

The only ZERO flight hour certificate in the world.
It's like getting a driver's license without the driver's test.

100% agree. There are a LOT of questions that I had, but it was late and the rank FNGs were busy with their questions.

One statement he made, that really rubbed me the wrong way, was that, "The FAA controls the air from Zero feet...". I wanted to ask if I needed an FAA number on my Tunnel Hull...when it flips sometimes it'll get up to 10'.

Complete Lunacy.

Do we need to call the FAA to plant trees, shrubs above zero feet now. Do our houses need anti collision lights on them?

They say even flying inside your own home you have to have remote ID on and broadcasting.
Do we need to have air traffic control authorization to enter our living room since apparently they regulate the air inside your house too.

It's just too much and frustrating.

If I jump into the air.. shoot my pistol does the FAA come into play..

What about the bullet.. does it have have to be resisted? LOL

We are kind of jesting BUT.. as you can see rules for the sake of dollars and the people in charge get mental! LOL.. (say it like Wayne from Waynes world)

Maybe the FAA BS is why NASA put monkeys in their prototype space capsules; so the capsules would be "sorta" manned.The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Hi,

Wish I could make the protest.
Been hard at work getting people to call and write...nprm window closes Mar 2..
I will personally be civilly disobedient...Use 4th and 5th amendment to avoid any exchange with faa gestapo...We have a gofundme page set up for model aircraft pilots who may be fined by faa...The idea that we my have to register each model puts me out of business.
If you can, please call Tyler at AMA...He seems only AMA person doing anything at all. If this disaster becomes law I will be leaving AMA for good....and hope many follow as well.

John.

Clearly, there are some individuals out ther in some position of authority that want to impose their will on others in violation of existing laws. Like the park administrator that banned drone flights in public parks. Even after a higher authority put a lid on him he still wouldn't quit. I like to see people like those made un-happy campers.

At the beginning of this year, the FAA's Remote ID for manned aircraft (ADSB) took effect.

More on Remote ID for drones,

The facts are the facts. Many will argue all this BS with the faa is not the fault of the drones (not including line of site quadcopter racing) "iam ta is talking long range distance GPS fling" . Let's look at the facts. Real HOBBYISTS had been flying with out any government oversight, you know forever..... Drones come into play and all things change. If it walks like a duck...... The ama had a chance to distance themselves. They saw an opportunity for the money grab. I was one of the many who said dont belive the government its only $5. I said once you open that door you will never close it. Once you do a deal with the "HOUSE" it always wins. Congratulations you got what you wanted....
