  9. Tater Rogers on August 10, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    Ho ho, hee hee, we say NO to remote ID!

  10. Jeremey Gloyd on August 10, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    We don’t want you to fly a drone but you can go up to Walmart and buy a gun! Come on America!

  11. Thunderbyrd on August 10, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    IMO Remote ID is a invasion of privacy on a free society at the very least, and should only be required to be used by people who have been convicted of a crime while using their drone.
    Invasion of privacy because they, the FAA can see where you are at anytime you turn on your Transmitter and they can share that info with other 3rd parties.
    Cars are way more dangerous per capita than UAV’s so does that mean the government should be able to pin point your location every time you turn your car on? In the name of safety? I’m just saying.

  12. Rajesh Tank on August 10, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    Hey, can u pls guide on how to do lidar mapping with DJI phantom 4 drone.

  13. meTimetraveler on August 10, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    I live in Maryland and I am in the wash dc no fly zone. I have to drive 10 miles to fly my drone. can’t fly in my yard or house.

  14. ghettoman the issue on August 10, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Protesting a government agency that has no constitutional authority over anything!!

  15. Tentoes on August 10, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    I think the authorities counted you all as "Mostly harmless."

  16. John Heitz on August 10, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Nice video Ken **********

  17. Drone Strike LLC. on August 10, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    If I had known sooner I would have attended. I feel that if more professional pilots chime in, it could help.

  18. ekrieves on August 10, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Watching this now is weird. Your comment about catching pneumonia didn’t age well haha. Since like 10 days later everything was in lockdown. Crazy. Anyway I hope we can convince them to change remote ID

  26. PropRotor Nut on August 10, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    The AMA should have encouraged all their members to comment!😒

  27. PEZ_FPV on August 10, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    can’t wait for the slingshot footage next time! lol

    Ken the ham, ultimate troll

  29. Robert Glazier on August 10, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    People that fly drones will have to fight for their rights just like gun owners do. U. S. Army retired. I fly over 20 drones for fun. I shoot over ? guns for fun. Great video. Thanks.

  32. Fatty FPV on August 10, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    Classic ending. Thanks, Henry.

  33. HolzMichel on August 10, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    after doing battle against the US forest service for many decades, all i can tell you is that this sort of thing only strengthens the FAA’s resolve. they’re gonna push this shit thru regardless of cost. they might set it on the back burner for a while and wait for a time when no one is looking and then *BANG!!* they shove it up our collective asses…and without lube or the courtesy of a kiss or a reach around..
    there really isn’t any way to stop this, even appealing to the president won’t stop this. unless congress pulls the brakes on this runaway freight train it will go forward. such is the power of the unelected, unaccountable bureaucrat and a socialistic mindset that has made itself at home in the government agencies.. should it be any wonder that the president has been trying to drain the swamp without much visible success?
    you guys are doing a good fight and i certainly commend you and your efforts. and i do hope what you’re doing will bear fruit in favor of the hobby.. color me skeptically optimistic….

  34. Hector Ayub on August 10, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Go! β€œSAVE OUR HOBBY”!!! congrats Henry!

  38. Ray Hollands on August 10, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    Hi Ken.

    You dislike these proposed drone rules.
    Everyone else there dislikes the proposed drone rules.
    Henry certainly hates the proposed drone rules.


    There’s one all important voice, which we all know and love, who has been silent up to now.

    Where does Pigeon Jerky stand…..!

  39. P. RIchard Scott on August 10, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    Thanks for being out there with us Ken. Was really cool to see you and other leaders in the industry. Thanks again
