“Remote ID is this a joke by the faa? Just one hour ago a full size helicopter flew over my house at no more than 300 ft max. Guess what?. No transponder switched on or even required to be on. Simple way to increase safety levels: 1 Make it mandatory that all full size aircraft must have a transponder installed and operative at all times. 2 Increase the flight ceiling from 500 feet to 1000 ft, except at airports. This will greatly decrease the number of near misses. Why the pressure on model hobbyist now to install remote ID when this is not a requirement for full size light aircraft. Hobbyists like me helped shape the evolution of the technology. I believe remote ID will kill the hobby and quickly too. Good luck with that. Regards.”
