“My kids and I enjoy RC flying as a family activity. It’s a great way to teach them creativity, problem solving, and basic science. We have really enjoyed our visits to Flite Fest. These regulations would add a dramatic amount of cost, time, and overhead to our usual build/fly/crash/fix/fly again cycles. We have at least a dozen planes at any one time and adding the expense and hassle of registration and remote ID equipment to each one would seriously curtail this. And that is assuming the proposed rules are relaxed to allow remote ID on amateur-built aircraft, since we do not have any fields nearby that are likely to be (a) FRIAs and (b) accepting of our type of aircraft.”
