YouTube is king of the Millennial generation and leaks into both Gen-X and Gen-Z as the top video hosting platform. It is also a leader in both the entertainment and social media categories allowing for users to create their own profiles as well as enjoy a range of video content from user-generated to even full-fledged cable programming. Looking at such a juicy proposition, any drone pilot would be salivating at the opportunity to become a face of the community on YouTube.
It was only fitting that our community of mavericks and renegades band together to fight against oppression. I just wish the stakes weren’t so high for so many when it comes to their rights and privileges to take to the skies and do what they love.
We have just a few days left to comment on this legislation. The FAA has opened the floor and now is the time for all of us to speak up against this proposal. Make your voice heard by submitting a comment and let the FAA know that they need to go back to the drawing board before proposing remote identification legislation again. Do not let our hobby die. Do not let the FAA and its lobbyist cronies like Amazon take away our rights and privileges as UAS pilots. FIGHT THE POWER, MAN!
