“I’m 39yrs old, I suffer from depression and anxiety. I discovered FPV drones a little.over 2 years ago. Prior to this hobby I never built a thing electronic, never soldered never even had a RC anything. This hobby has saved my life.being ankle to go out put on my goggles and fly is the most therapeutic thing I have ever done. My depression is at its lowest and my anxiety I’ve learned to control. Having the since of accomplishment by building a quad from a pile of parts has been the most rewarding thing for me in a long time. I’ve made so many new friends. I get out almost every day ( weather permitting) where prior to drones I was a hermit. If the FAA passes the regulations as they are the FAA will make me a criminal for doing something that’s saving my life. Please dont make me a criminal…. please dont take this away. I agree there should be something in place and I feel that y ok u should be required to take a yearly test on the safety of flying and operating drones.”
