We Don’t Need No Registration!

Recommended Posts

Just some fun at the field.  ‘Cause we don’t need no stinking registration:

This is such a beautiful hobby that’s being ruined by some bureaucratic pinheads.  Just one guys opiniin.

I agree why should RC model aircraft pilots need to register when they have been flying safely for so long and typically are already registered with the AMA which includes insurance. This comes back to how the FAA have done a bad job of defining what exactly a drone is and ended up including any remote controlled aircraft weighing over 0.55lbs.

We agree that the FAA is screwing this up and there’s no real evidence that would justify the requirement to register, unfortunately I think the AMA is as culpable for this mess as the government.

why should paying $50 to join a club grant more rights and privileges than those that aren’t in the club.  Both the FAA and the AMA are creating two classes of operators.  All it does is create confusion, who’s running this asylum?

I’m sorry but there are so many reckless “pilots” ruining it for rest of us that there is obviously a need for registration! 

Also I believe that not only professional drone operators but also hobbyists should absolutely be required at least some form of online class or education and certification.

Today’s drones are more powerful, faster and have longer operational distances capabilities that is very easy to cause a harm to others as a result of reckless and uneducated drone operations.

That is my opinion and I’m sticking to it!

I have no problem with "drone hobbyists" having to register, its having ALL the RC Aircraft modeling community members having to also register that I object to. Why should the FAA be interested in someone that owns a bunch of RC model aircraft, is a member of the AMA and only flies at an AMA designated club airfields that are typically in the middle of nowhere. Now, a hobbyist with camera drone would likely want to take some interesting video and pictures and so end up flying in public places. I agree that they should be registered.

I understand what you mean. What I was referring to was pointed more to the "weekend drone fliers" who, and lets be honest there is a lot of them, think that choosing which drone to get is the hardest task and flying it doesn't involve anything more then charging the batteries and getting the"sweet" image or video at whatever cost.

Have a great new year and safe flying!
