If you haven't been living under a rock you would have noticed all of the uproar in regard to the new FAA Drone-ID Proposal. At this stage, I am tending to go with the opinions put forward from people such as sar104 and BigAl07 on that other forum we know and love. And it is also kind of obvious that the people screaming the loudest are the bozos who have been boasting about their illegal flying activities and publishing them on YouTube. Facebook etc. Well now that has come back to bite us big time. And they simply won't stop endlessly repeating themselves in describing the government as evil and that the end of the hobby is upon us. It's true that the big players such as Amazon, UPS, FexEx etc are largely being catered for but the poor reputation that the recreational drone community has earned due to the few bad apples would have been taken into account when the FAA started drafting the proposed new regulations. I am interested in this because CASA will no doubt follow the FAA and introduce similar measures. I think it is high time that The Australian Recreational UAS Operator's Association was formed. An established self-regulated/policing body would help to show CASA that we take this stuff seriously, at least those of us who obey the law and flu responsibly. Where and how to start I wonder?
