Frankly, my knee jerk reaction is similar. Makes me wanna say eff it, but flying a drone is a side interest to me, my main interest is riding, but that too will have a limit eventually due to my age.I still have few days to return my Skydio 2. Shall I return it? What do you think?
These rules are frustrating. I am not sure where to fly legally and now they are adding new rules. In San Jose everybody flies in a park that says 0 feet in airmap but people say it is ok maybe because the park is allowing it explicitly with some banners. and that seems the only place close to me. Otherwise I need to drive more than an hour to fly 20 minutes.
It seems it is easier to carry a gun here in US than flying a drone just for fun. This is really annoying. No remote ID is required for guns?
I live in the country...cell is sketchy at my house!! If what you say is true about requirement to have cell all the time, I'm basically grounded at home...and so is anyone else that lives, or flies, in remote terrain.dmac1 flying a drone where there is NO CELLULAR connectivity under REMOTE ID is illegal under Proposed RULES change. drone does use wi-fi. Remote id uses CELLULAR. NO cellular connection, no legal flight PERIOD. we would be limited to already previously existing FAA-approved Hobbyist-designated fields ONLY.
doesnt look good long term...live for TODAY.....Apologize if necessary, never look back. that's what the drone is for...I live in the country...cell is sketchy at my house!! If what you say is true about requirement to have cell all the time, I'm basically grounded at home...and so is anyone else that lives, or flies, in remote terrain.
My SD2 will be useless to me cuz I don't wanna ride and fly in populated areas.
Maybe I should go all conspiracy theory and say "yep, just another step toward Agenda 2030" (used to be Agenda 21).
