I heard that the FAA may not require Remote ID on flights below 300ft. Saw this on Ken Heron's TNL YouTube broadcast last night. Has anyone else heard this?

You heard wrong. No where in the rules is any altitude mentioned, so the FAA doesn't have the authority to arbitrarily set AGL limits. I'm sure many would like that, but it's not going to happen.

We're talking about RID here. And the FAA did not set the 400' limit, that was done by Congress when they wrote the FAA's UAS rules.

Also, as far as Ken's information, he tends to jump the gun on some things. I've been on his show as a guest more than once, but he is an entertainer first, and information disseminator second. I like Ken and I like Ryan, I'm friends with both. But they both give bad advice at times.
