“I live in a rural area, city pop est 2500, county 10k max. Low rolling hills -southeast corner of the Ozarks. Wifi coverage is limited to residential areas only, and cell coverage is nonexistent in many areas due to location and quantity of cell towers. Due to topography we have MANY nulls from ground-level to 500+ feet AGL. While I agree that from the “Big Picture” drones can ( and I”m sadly sure will ) be weaponized easily, the VAST majority will be used responsibly, with incursions into prohibited areas accidental. We need responsible pilots, both licensed and un-licensed to set examples as evidence of common behavior to show that their proposed requirements are in many cases both un-needed and a burden to responsible pilots everywhere.”
