“I am recreational Flyer who flies mainly fixed wing from a farmer’s field nearby as well as a photography drone for YouTube videos and short films. While I am not resident in the US, the rest of the world often follow the US. The proposed regulations are not for the safety of the hobby as the hobby is already very safe. These regulations, if implemented will kill the hobby and thus deprive future innovators, aviators and STEM students from a great introduction to the science of flight – note Neil Armstrong who started out in the hobby. I believe that non commercial hobby flying should be exempt from all rules except a height restriction of 120m and line of sight. Registration does nothing for safety or security as those intent on breaking the law will not register.”
