FPV Coalition Advocating Recreational Drone Weight Increase
The FPV Coalition seeks help from its members and the entire drone community to help advocate for increasing the weight restriction for recreational drone use from 250g to 1kg. Such a change would allow recreational users to fly larger and more capable drones without having to register with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) — and, according to the FPV Coalition, without significant impact to safety — making the hobby more accessible and less expensive to pursue.
Is 250g too light for the weight exemption of recreational registration? I think so. Take a look at [the FPV Freedom Coalition] page and see if you’d like to help out. I would suggest a personal email rather than the form letter (form letters don’t have the same impact in Congress), but if that’s all you can do, please do it. It doesn’t take that much time, and it will help out all who fly recreationally. And most of us also fly recreationally.
