    Need a new law.. No drone can carry anything other than a camera it came with from the factory.. This means no weight, weight causes extra dangers… Including packages. Also… Amazon should be required to buy drones back.. Drones with out gps… I have a mavic air 2… They can buy that back too.. I will never fly it anymore for photography. I won’t be buying nothing from amazon anymore.. Stocks will be dumped and my company will have it’s website blocked. I have plenty of other places to buy the same stuff.

    There is no cell phone network internet or anything else required. NO NETWORK NEEDED. You as a commercial pilot will be able to fly at night, fly over people and cars, possibly fly bvlos, yet you feel you are being punished? If I want to stay legal, I can now legally operate into the night doing thermal inspections, have a path to fly over people, and possibly fly bvlos. I will use remote id when it suits me and other times i wont when it doesnt. I do not feel punished at all. Ps, that crazy neighbor already knows where you live!!

  3. Govind Sikhwal on February 18, 2021 at 4:32 pm

    this makes a lot of sense when compared to Indian rules and regulations where you need to obtain a permission prior to to fly your drone. Skipping this wont allow your drone to arm. I have heard people waiting for hours and hours just to get the permission. Well lol lets see how FAA takes this thing over but still its better than Our rules and regulations.

  4. Tony Light on February 18, 2021 at 4:34 pm

    Good video!!

  5. Ken Weller on February 18, 2021 at 4:36 pm

    Is there anything about loosening up line-of-sight?

  6. Drone Views Media on February 18, 2021 at 4:37 pm

    Coming to Europe too, unfortunately

  7. Cinema1920x1080 on February 18, 2021 at 4:38 pm

    Thank you, wife of Bitch McConnell, for addressing "privacy concerns" by authoritatively removing all privacy and "advancing opportunities for innovation" by automating the FAA’s tentative approach to banking off of the most profitable fines for breaking unknown/confusing rules that have little (if anything) to do with flight safety.

  8. Herman Fernandez on February 18, 2021 at 4:38 pm

    This should literally be for 1400 g Phantom pilots, or the 750 g Mavic Pilots… Considering they are the literal only ones giving drones a bad rep. A 450g> drone should not be thrown in the same category.

  9. Ermin on February 18, 2021 at 4:40 pm

    I cannot believe that companies such as Amazon, UPS and others are actually considering doing package deliveries. Their drones will be dropping like flies and hurting people on the ground. There are way too many variables involved in carrying out a safe drone flight. What’s gonna happen when there are hundreds of delivery drones flying above our heads and annoying people? What’s gonna happen in high winds? Who is gonna make a decision to abort flights for hundreds of drones when weather changes so rapidly? What happens if batteries fail? What happens if person’s house has so many trees around that their package cannot be safely safely delivered? What happens when thieves figure out a way to knock them out of sky to steal packages? Drone delivery on a large scale is Bezo’s idiotic idea that will never become reality. What’s actually gonna happen is that their package delivery system operation will be halted by FAA as soon as accidents start happening and it is a certainty that they WILL happen. His idea will stay just that…an idea. And guess what? Remote ID will stick for us hobbyists because s..t load of money that was dropped into it. Thanks Bezos for ruining it for all of us!

  10. Jorah G on February 18, 2021 at 4:40 pm

    Jeff Bezos is on the Pentagon Defense advisory board…You think he can’t influence the FAA in his favor? He can do anything he wants to dominate the Drone market. I will bet you Amazon will come out with their own comercial Prime Drones very soon. And their own fleet for Prime deliveries.

  11. BootyJuice on February 18, 2021 at 4:45 pm

    I have my doubts that my Mavic 2 can be retrofitted to broadcast remote ID. Does that mean I will be restricted to flying at FAA-sanctioned "drone parks"?

  12. Tim Kreitz Adventures on February 18, 2021 at 4:45 pm

    You have no effective privacy as a licensed airman and should have no expectations of privacy. This essentially brings the same transponder/ADS-B requirement to UAS aircraft that the general aviation and commercial air sectors are subject to. As a commercial drone operator and ultralight pilot, I am all for this. In fact, I think ultralights should be next. This will weed out the people who have no business flying UAS systems and will hopefully make people who fly negligently (such as the idiot who almost crashed his UAS into the Blue Angels) easier to prosecute.

  13. Simon Nolte on February 18, 2021 at 4:47 pm

    All of these rules are ridiculous, if corporations have indeed bought our airspace, I’ll retrofit my drones and take theirs down

  14. Astro Kid on February 18, 2021 at 4:48 pm

    Doesn’t dji track u already with the app?

  15. Walker Hull on February 18, 2021 at 4:49 pm

    Nice and clear overview and explanation. Appreciate you doing your due diligence and research and sharing with the community. I’m curious how this will affect our ability to fly older models like the Mavic 2 Pro. Will there be a module we can attach/install on the drone to retrofit it or will we have to upgrade in order to fly outside of the FAA designated areas? I assume this is one of the main reasons why DJI waited on releasing the Mavic 3? Thanks again dude!

  16. DaMeshMonster on February 18, 2021 at 4:52 pm

    I’m really upset that none of you are blaming Trump because if this happened under Obama, you couldn’t help but mentioned it.

  17. C Spencer on February 18, 2021 at 4:52 pm

    You claim that there’s been “lots of reckless flying” and cite one example. That is a demonstrably false statement. There have been millions of drone flights and literally only a handful of incidents. Problem is the media hypes up and usually greatly overstates the few incidents that have occurred, because well that’s what the media does. This is big corporations getting what they want and hobbyist drone flyers getting screwed. Follow the money!!! It could have been worse. But still sounds pretty bad to me.

  18. Bujaboy on February 18, 2021 at 4:53 pm

    Not good, what about the Cities? And bad weathers? And why y’all trying to remove jobs from People? Is there a reason for that too?

  19. RODPIKER DRONES UK on February 18, 2021 at 4:54 pm

    Thanks for sharing cheers

  20. Ling Hann Kim on February 18, 2021 at 4:55 pm

    How are they going to address VLOS issue for drone delivery? I am quite sure Amazon won’t have people watching their drone (within sight) while delivering their packages.

  21. 1001 Cool Games on February 18, 2021 at 4:55 pm

    Cool Video My Friend

  22. Sean G on February 18, 2021 at 4:56 pm

    Corporate firm UPS, the delivery dudes, have an unlimited pass to fly over public areas with impunity.
    If the cams on those craft are not locked down, private intelligence firms might get run out of the aerial surveillance business. Interesting times…

  23. C2C World News on February 18, 2021 at 4:58 pm

    Remote id still does not apply to sub 250 gram aircraft. As stated and has not been changed by the new fan rules, you are not required to register a sub 250 gram aircraft. Therefore, this will suck for drones like the mavic air and larger but will still not apply to the mini 1 or mini 2… so far its not to bad as I will be a plus for safety concerns and not so bad for the younger or new crowd getting into the sport. Just my 2 cents. Thx for the vid and update.

  24. Wayne Evans on February 18, 2021 at 4:59 pm

    You called it with the lobbyist….Good video bud!

  25. TheCablebill on February 18, 2021 at 5:06 pm

    If I fly an airplane there are often transponder requirements, and lately, anyone can track me on their phone with ADS-B. I have no more problem with this than the requirement to have a foot-high tail number painted on my plane or a license plate on my car. I want to responsibly share the airspace and I’m willing to comply with reasonable real-time identification requirements.

    But it isn’t clear to me whether the visual line of sight requirement will be eliminated. I hope so. It does not necessarily enhance safety.

  26. Jim Prpich on February 18, 2021 at 5:07 pm

    I just bought a Mav Air 2 how long before I have to stop using it. And have to buy a new one

  28. Brandon on February 18, 2021 at 5:09 pm

    This hobby sucks now. Sorry just need to vent.

  29. CrashN Burn on February 18, 2021 at 5:10 pm

    I think it’s going to push the hobbyists to morph into a lower state of illegal flyers because of the big guys forcing out the little guys. In turn will force people who don’t have fat cash to resort to lower levels. That’s my prediction. It’s only one opinion in 7bill. So don’t really count anyway

  31. jordan b on February 18, 2021 at 5:15 pm

    As an fpv person how am i supposed to add this to my drones

  33. Suazzz on February 18, 2021 at 5:16 pm

    There just ruining the hobby that’s all! The hobby will die! It was fun just being free to fly but now it’s just gonna be a pain!

  34. Jim Prpich on February 18, 2021 at 5:18 pm

    Big brother tracking you

  35. James Richardson on February 18, 2021 at 5:20 pm

    What does this mean for Mavic Mini and Mini 2 owners? Or more specifically, what does this mean for drone operators with any drone under the 250g weight limit?

  36. Raul Gil on February 18, 2021 at 5:21 pm

    7:34 “you might not Want your crazy neighbors to know your location”
    That sounds like a stocker or a thief, or a killer surveying for possibilities.
    It’s a crazy world. 10:05

  37. Beam's Hobby Shack on February 18, 2021 at 5:21 pm

    1st, I’m glad regulations are being implemented. Though I feel that it hurts urban foyers like myself that can’t find many places to fly unless I go to Jersey or Delaware. Oddly enough, I live exactly .1 mile from the entrance of an airport and I am allowed to launch my DJI Mini right where I live. I never fly any of my previous and/or latter drones over 50′. If I do, then I go and find a park or something. When you have a major airport, PHL, that commercially flys in designated areas, it’s often times difficult to find unrestricted places to fly. I have Rockets in Belmont Plateau that climbs almost to 350′ in the air and can come down almost anywhere depending upon which way the wind blows, but when I flew my drone there and it was a Syma X5, I was told I couldn’t fly it there. That was a couple of years ago and I had prop guards on it and no one else around. Tell me this. Law Enforcement Officials, I was told, can implement and impose the law as they see fit and we either have to have a law degree and/or be able to reinterpret the law to avoid criminal charges in case of a mishap.

  38. Gentleb on February 18, 2021 at 5:21 pm

    The rule requires the drone to broadcast the ID information not upload it to the internet( this was a big change from the proposed NPRM). So if you are in a no-cell coverage area it shouldn’t matter your drone will still transmit it’s remote ID information

  39. der Jakob on February 18, 2021 at 5:23 pm

    Make sure to let them know how you feel on their YT channel https://youtu.be/2TUEWlSlxh0

  40. Zach Matthews on February 18, 2021 at 5:23 pm

    It’s gonna kill the drone industry. I know I’m not going to be flying anymore.
