“I have been safely flying model aircraft for over 25 years without any accidents or issues with the public. This hobby is very educational, creative, and fun for people of all ages. These Draconian rules would absolutely destroy a hobby. Most astronauts, comnercial pilots, military pilots and others began their interest in aviation through the building, designing, and flying of model aircraft. It is very clear that the rule writers at the FAA do not fully understand the scope of the hobby and its importance to millions of Americans. The FAA needs to work closely with the AMA, the biggest and most knowledgeable organization representing those of us who fly model aircraft. Together the FAA will learn more and would be able to craft more realistic regulations that will not adversely impact our safe and productive hobby!”
