“I am a private pilot who no longer flies “real” planes because of physical concerns. I enjoy flying small rc aircraft from my local soccer field and soon hope to be flying from a pond in my backyard. Since I fly under 1-200′ AGL and within 100 yards of myself, I don’t see any reason for these proposed regs. I understand that there have been problems with idiots flying in restricted airspace and don’t have a problem with geofencing airport property or having some kind of ID enabling method on drones flown into those areas. However, it’s unfair to paint everybody with the same brush and making those of us who fly small 1-3 pound foam planes install probably expensive and heavy extra equipment and then have to pay for monitoring just to fly.”
