“I have flown without incident for more than 40 years. I often fly sailplanes and occasionally electric models. I fly mostly at parks which allow models to operate because, quite simply, flying sites in my large metropolitan area have largely died. They have been replace by housing and industrial parks. These parks are not going to allow themselves to be converted into FRIA locations. I have more than 10 models. Most are more than 10 years old, molded from composites and quite expensive. There would be no easy or cheap upgrade path for my for remote ID. My perfectly good radio gear and models represent an investment of well over $5000 to me.”
