    There is a fight brewing.. here is a post from the FAA Facebook page.. those interested in helping our rights to fly should go check it out and help.. get in the fight..
    Go to the FAA Facebook page!
    Here is a post from that page which is taking a stand against the Feds:
    "This action is illegal & prohibited by Section 336 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012. This section specifically prohibits the FAA from promulgating any new rules or regulations regarding model aircraft if they’re flown for hobby
    or recreational purposes"

    We the people suspect all this over reach of power has something to do with us having quality camera platforms in the sky?
    Maybe Big Brother does not want surveillance competition?
    Do not want us to see everything the Feds are doing?
    False Flags maybe?
    We the people have the Right to hold our Government accountable.
    There are laws on the Books! So stand down!

    We the People own Washington D.C. We can tour and see it from the sky if we want to. 400' height restrictions are enough!

    It does not take a degree from US Air Force Academy Walters States Tarrant Jr College, to understand that the Media hyped Bogey-men of the day ISIS (which the CIA created) or Al Qaeda (Which the CIA
    created) will not be able to transfer weapons with a 1.5 lb Electric DJI Quad Copter! They will only lift a Gopro!

    Gentlemen you are subject to taking an oath when appointed or hired at the FAA? Alternatively, you are aware of the U.S. Citizens oath? The one that States YOU will "Support and Defend" our Constitutional Rights? maybe then you are familiar with this Amendment? Well We have taken that oath and we intend to hold you accountable to it.

    The Ninth Amendment states, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” This means that the rights citizens are not limited by those listed in the Constitution. The purpose of the Ninth Amendment was to dismiss the notion that the rights not explicitly named in the Constitution did not exist. The Ninth Amendment
    rights or Non-enumerated rights are additional fundamental rights protected from governmental infringement. These additional rights exists side-by-side with the fundamental rights specifically
    mentioned in the first eight amendments. -
    See more at: Amendment IX – Non-Enumerated Rights (1791) - U.S. Constitution - US Legal System

    Further reminders to the FAA:
    The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the Federal Government, are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State Governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negociation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will for the most part be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties and properties of the people; and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State.
    Amendment X: James Madison, Federalist, no. 45, 313--14

    The FAA couldn't care less whether you have a camera or what you do with it.
    Their core business is aviation safety and although their registration push is half-baked, they have only ever suggested aviation safety as justification.

    This FAA Administrator is a Political party appointee.
    "President Obama nominated Huerta as Deputy Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). On January 26, 2010, Huerta appeared before Congress[4] for his confirmation hearing,[5] but his Congressional confirmation was held up by Texas Senator John Cornyn over fighter drones patrolling the Mexico–United States border near Corpus Christi.[6] Huerta waited over five months for his congressional confirmation; on June 23, 2010, he became Deputy Administrator of the FAA.
    Huerta became Acting Administrator of the FAA upon the resignation of Randy Babbitt on December 6, 2011.[7] As Acting Administrator, Huerta helped oversee the operation of the National Airspace System and a $16 billion budget"

    Seems to me the Media promoted Drone fear stories, came from the White house 1st. I can assure you the FAA could be worried about Arial video of & by the citizens of the United States.
