Yes, it does alarm me. My grandfather signed up on the first day of the war, likely for very similar reasons to yours. But trying to go head to head with the government isn't going to do anything useful for us here.
Why you should be alarmed, even if you could care less about homebuilt RC...
FAA Announces Drone Remote ID Proposal
There's only 2 letters degree of separation away...
from criminalizing all unpiloted homebuilt aircraft, to criminalizing all piloted homebuilt aircraft.
But then, maybe you're down with being gangsta like me.
I'm totally okay with being a criminal. I've been a freedom fighter since I was born. That girl is a Tomboy... : - )
I can tell you one thing for sure, my fighter pilot great grandfather is groaning and rolling over in his grave.
I knew him well enough to know for gosh darn sure, an omnipotent omniscient police state is not what he thought he was fighting for in WW2... :-/
This proposed rule has come about because too many people have broken existing laws doing stupid things. Do more stupid stuff, they will throw more and more laws at us. if people decide to flout a new law, they will just make it harder and harder. Expect background checks, UAS pilot licenses (with tests) etc etc until people stop doing stupid **** with their drones. Please don't be one of those pissing off the law. They can and will conjure a bigger stick than any of us ever wants to ever see.
I have been on the other side of the law. I got off very lightly, but an arrest record is still a monumental PITA for my life. The only reason I didn't get thrown in prison for 5 years was because the target of my action was acting illegally and the body supposed to be regulating them were ignoring a LOT of independant complaints. Think REALLY carefuly before you do something illegal. Gangsta culture is mostly about bullpoop, it's not something a sane person should aspire to.
If you want to do something positive, write a letter to your representative. Tell him/her why this rule is bad and perhaps suggest something that might keep both sides grumbling in agreement. Facts are very good.
