I hope the FAA gets to view this.
Great video! I’ve been flying Rc planes, sailplanes, helis and drones since 1973 and once again Washington is trying to stop this hobby. Transponders/licensing fees for each of my models??

Please respond to Washington thru numerous sites, ie AMA. Have EVERY voter in your family even they don’t fly right now, respond to this latest effort to create a useless bureaucracy. When Rc flying is gone it will be impossible to bring it back for your kids and grandkids.

I’ve been licensed as a power and glider private pilot with the FAA, so I do know what transponders are and what it’s like to work with the FAA when they are reasonable! After my crash, I ended up in the NTSB database and was retested by an FAA examiner.

Sadly once again we have to work to maintain our “rights” when someone In Washington wants “regulate” us for our “safety”

Thx Ken

The deadline is fast approaching.
