    star date 10/17/19, can you explain why as recreational pilot, you are able to fly at night, but if you’re part 107 you can’t. also, if recreational pilot are able to fly at night, why LAANC is not approving it, does that mean just go and fly without LAANC approval?

    If a drone is ever responsible for a jumbo jet going down with the loss if 200-300 lives lost, then you’ll get some real regulations.

    If it’s not a cheap crap wal-mart toy, it does not work on the same freq as a 1990s cordless phone.
    Why can a hobbyist just tell the tower there in the area, but a licensed, tested pilot has to ask permission. The rules are a bit backwards. Seems that the hobbyist should have to ask permission. not the licensed pilot.

    So, if your wanting to film a house for a realtor. The house is 1 mile from an air port. Your not going to fly over 50ft. Do you have to call the airport?

    I have watched numerous tutorial/testprep/videos on sUAS. I would recommend watching this video as the presenter has a slightly different perspective coming from public safety background and was instrumental in developing the current rules around sUAS certification.

    For many years Weather Balloons have been launched by NOAA/NWS (at 0000Z and 1200Z) from 100 sites across the USA, transmitting Upper Air data (Temp/Humidity/Press/Winds) and not one word from the FAA about their potential collision issues- But when it comes to drones, the FAA places all kinds of regs on those users. Hypocrisy.
    I suggest a low powered xponder be on both, offering some potential for collision avoidance would be best.

    Hobby aircraft never needed to be registered with the FAA, only the PILOT. The pilot’s FAA number had to be attached to the hobbyist’s aircraft. This rule was reversed, and it is no longer a requirement for hobbyists to register with the FAA or place their pilot’s number on the aircraft. For Part 107 pilots, registration of aircraft is still required.
