“I have been into RC flying for over 40 years. I build most of my UAVs during the winter months and fly when weather permits the rest of the year. I recently retired and was looking forward to spending a lot more time with the hobby. The FAA proposal has me very concerned that my passion and love for flying will be greatly affected, if not terminated. I don’t think these rules will affect safety at all or are needed. It appears to restrict 10s of thousands of RC hobbyists or grounding us so commercial delivery drones can have ALL of the airspace we currently use! This hobby has many beneficial results in innovation, education, small business and personal enjoyment. Please do not restrict are hobby anymore than it already is. Daniel Frese”
