Stuff it with your lame draconian rhetoric. If you are a US Citizen, drive a car, have a bank loan, pay taxes, registered a gun, or lucky enough to have health insurance Big Brother already has more on you than a simple UAV registration will glean.The right to privacy is not a joke. It's jokers that are screwing it up and the tools are celebrating it.
Do not forget how incompetent and corrupt the government is and your personal information can be exposed at anytime, thus opening the door for you and your family being screwed up by things like identity theft.
One thing that got me into this hobby was the draconian registration being abolished.
Now I am reviewing this decision and in the meantime likely only fly the light drones that do not require registration.
Well, aircraft have "transponders" for air traffic control but the paramotor public and hot-air ballons don't have, like a few others! Another thingIt is somewhat comical that manned full size aviation has no such requirement.
Wind Towers are a hazard shown on Aeronautical charts. They are subject to lighting requirements, but the blades can extend more that 100 feet above the lit tower.Well, aircraft have "transponders" for air traffic control but the paramotor public and hot-air ballons don't have, like a few others! Another thing
which is not required, they also don't have a 400 ft. altitude restriction like hobby RC quadcopters and RC planes have. I think there is a limit
with the gliders (sailplanes) which is 14,000 ft. and I am thinking that plane traffic is not suppose to fly under 400 ft.? The FCC requirements
for tower heights is 200 ft. including the antenna height and any tower over the limit requires navigation lights and the enforcement of the
lights is strict with logs if a light went out it has to be immediately replaced since the tower would be a flight hazard. I'd like to know why these
wind farms are getting away violating the laws and it has to be $$$ and who (politicians) gets payed off. It's just a matter of time when a
plane tangles with a wind tower and it hits the news.
Which is why the FAA notes wind turbine fields specifically and recommends a 500 ft vertical minimum clearance.....Wind Towers are a hazard shown on Aeronautical charts. They are subject to lighting requirements, but the blades can extend more that 100 feet above the lit tower.
