“I have been flying since 1980. I am older and live on a fixed income. I live in a small town that does have an airport of sorts. I already cannot fly anything above 250 grams because of the laws. I also cannot fly within 5 miles of my little town. Because I am disabled and on a limited income I can not drive 2 or more hours away to go to some field (almost every place near me being 2 or more hours away). This hobby was never a problem. Now all of a sudden I am permanently grounded and can not fly anything but toys that weigh less than 250 grams because they are not regulated. I am afraid they are killing the hobby and even the 250 gram limit is going to be removed and I will have nothing left eventually. It is not fair to punish the world for what a very few people have done wrong.”
