“I’m not sure I understand the true purpose of the rules. If the rules are meant to prepare us for a world of commercial UAS usage (such as Amazon package delivery) then they should be focused more narrowly on those areas. The rule does nothing to prevent people who want to from flying in illegal manners. It imposes a huge financial and technical burden on model airplane hobbyists who own and fly multiple aircraft line of site from AMA registered fields. I’m 62 years old and got into model aviation about 5 years ago after a lifetime fascination with aviation in general and have enjoyed the entire process. It would be a shame to see what is a safe, non-threatening hobby stunted by undo regulation.”
