    The FAA has published a Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) about the upcoming Remote Identification of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (RID of UAS). It’s a 319 page long horror story. You can find it here:
    You can download the PDF under “Printed version”.

    Maybe some of you can live with the restrictions of RID, but there is one more important point for our community. You have to throw all your quadcopters and planes above 250g (0.55 lbs) into the trash!!! You are not allowed to fly them any longer if this NPRM goes into effect, except you are only flying at a FRIA site.

    If you don’t believe it, read the NPRM chapter XIII (page 150). The problem is that the typical quadcopter or plane that we are flying today does not comply with the new rules. You have to buy new quadcopters. If you buy a kit, no modifications are allowed. If you think you can build an Amateur-built UAS than you need to know that it is almost impossible to fulfill the rules and it is very expansive.

    We need to fight this NPRM. Get active now and reply to the FAA. And write your representatives in Congress and Senate.

    Out in the middle of nowhere.
    And as with every regulation proposed by the FAA the community will do as they always do, wring their hands, then bend over and spread em.

    It's not in their DNA to fight anything.
