  1. If the place can have model Aircraft.
    I have been flying Model air plan’s for 52 year’s and now you think I should not fly,
    if the gov, can fly camera’s over the U.S.A. why can’t I?

  2. FAA:

    I am concerned about your rules and regulations as they pertain to the aviation modeling hobby. I am a private pilot and have been in and around aviation most of my life. I also fly RC-FPV aircraft. I recognize your role in keeping the public safe. I also recognize that government agencies can and often do, over-reach their mission and purpose. Be it gun safety, automobile safety or the many consumer product concerns that have safety implications….laws are only for those who will abide by them. Sure…there will be those who will abuse the rules, but that will happen regardless, as we see every day on the news.

    Please be responsible in your role as public guardian of the airspace, while also remembering that there are thousands of us who wish to use it for our purposes…as well…Responsibly!!!! Congress should also be aware that most of us are reasonably intelligent and active in our communities, state and federal government. WE VOTE.
