“I am 66 years old and have been flying radio controlled aircraft since my teens. I Have belonged to multiple clubs and I’ve never found a situation where security both country and individual was threatened. I’ve also never ever seen anyone seriously injured or killed due to this hobby. Comparing amateur built fixed wing aircraft to robotically controlled multirotor aircraft demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of what most of this hobby is about. All radio controlled aircraft are not drones. As long as line of sight is necessary for flying an aircraft then there is no need for any government interference.First person video and remote flying access or using drones in a professional capacity is different from the hobby of flying model aircraft. If these rules are put in place you affectively destroy a hobby that’s both educational and an economic viability in this country. Jobs will be lost, education will be lost, community would be lost.”
