“I have been flying something or other for nearly sixty years without a safety incident of any kind. Building and flying is a satisfying, challenging and gratifying experience. The NPRM would destroy the hobby and severely choke the STEM efforts of our young people. Complying with the remote ID provision is an invasion of privacy not unlike the concerns over Chinese drone surveillance. The cost and compliance would be prohibitive for many modelers like myself. The so-called FRIA zones are subject to governmental caprice and would dwindle due to market forces and eminent domain. In short, I find the NPRM a solution in search of a non-existent problem.”
