“I find Model aircraft flying to be a family friendly, fun and exciting hobby. in the recent years, there has already been a decline in interest in traditional fixed wing and single rotor helicopter flying. I am afraid that more restrictions on this hobby will further increase the burden of entering into the hobby and be detrimental to the rc flying hobby as a whole. I have already seen the 2 closest local hobby shops closest to me close their doors(rc hobbies and more in winsted & hobbytown new milford) and I fear that more regulations like the ones proposed by this rule will only increase these situations. while I understand that there are some safety concerns that need to be addressed, mostly with the more recent autonomous & gps guided multirotor drones, I don’t think that punishing the model flying community, a community that has been flying safely in the US airspace for decades, to this extent is a good solution.”
