“Something out of my comment to the NPRM. Just like with manned aircraft someone flying a $50 scratch-built aircraft should be in a different category than a $5,000 DJI hexacopter. Different rules could be made for scratch-built aircraft who would most likely fly for fun around in the local park should not have to remotely transmit their location to air traffic control. If anything would be transmitting it would be a general area where the aircraft is flying via app and approximate distances. On the other hand, DJI drones already have GPS capabilities and it would be easier to install a type of transponder on that aircraft transmitting a more accurate signal.”
