“I love building small lightweight aircraft, fixed wing electrics. I fly over my property, 6 acres rural area, and at the beaches or mountains. No GPS, telemetry, etc , just bare bones basic aircraft. I understand the regulations and the impact on drones and long distance fliers, as well as large aircraft, but most pilots I think fly small lightweight stuff. I started with rc almost 30 years ago, back then it was incredibly expensive to get into flying. Now since the entry cost is so low everyone can fly. I’m not about to start retrofitting small often beat up foam fliers with all kinds of tracking and ID technology.”
