“Ive always loved flying as a kid. Ever since hopping on my first plane as my family and I moved to New Zealand from South Africa, I fell in love with aircraft and flight. I never thought of pursuing a commercial or private pilots license but being able to build my own models and fly them gives me the freedom to be able to appreciate flight on a smaller level. Being able to scratchbuild your own aircraft with fpv is an incredible experience and the new regulations will have a huge impact on people like me who have enjoyed the freedom to build an aircraft from cheap materials such as foamboard and making it capable of flying. RC model flying is such a special hobby, and I am sad to think that the upcoming regulations could have a detrimental effect to it and to the future of all those who may pursue it too!”
