    I didn't appreciate his snide remark about Obamacare… As a legal adviser that specializes in healthcare laws the ACA was actually VERY successful and vast majority of people insulting it have no clue what they are talking about. Much of the issues they have with the healthcare system has nothing to do with the ACA.

    "To create change, you must create crisis"… how come they haven't changed gun laws in America then? * confused face * drones don't crash into people, people crash into people.

    I'm within 5 miles of a grass field airport with no control tower (FAA ID X09). How do I get permission to fly a done in the area? I would be using a drone for Real Estate photography and would only be flying a couple of hundred feet in the air. I'm a couple of miles from the approach so I would not be interfering with planes that are landing.

    Hallo Drone fans. Firtst off all. I am from Austria and believe me, we do have stronger permissions to fly drones, as in US. I checked out all rules for the countries of interest, as well US, why I had seen your video. Round about in 3 years, I will visit Utah, Arizona and California after round 15 years again. I use a DJI mavic air, where the map anyhow will not allow me to fly in these zones, but I am very interested to make short non-commercial shots for my big filming hobby. Therefore I listened carefully your video and hope, there is a chance to get permissions to fly in dedicated areas. I had a training certificate for drones up to 2kg ( 4 lb) and hope this will help to can fly in respect to animals and other person, who like to enjoy, like myself, the silence of the nature. So please let me know, what I can do in this case. Still I have enough time to organise.

    What does the Part 107 waiver & authorization do? I am just getting into drones and my house is closer then 5 miles from airport. My question is do I need to call the atc everytime I fly it will learning to fly it or is the waiver something to look into?

    Tbh, it’s all bull…model helicopters and aircraft have been around forever, not needing faa registration. Quads are far safer, and more advanced with obstacle avoidance, but cos they have cameras, theyre illegal? Aerial vehicle my ass. It’s a palm sized model toy basically, that you hear from 500 feet away. If you are hit by one, you should have heard it coming and avoid it. I’d fine pilots who crash into people, but all these small print restrictions are ridiculous. They don’t want you to,take and sell pictures from nail.parks, not realizing it’s basically perfect advertising for them, to promote people to go explore the beauty of the parks. He also made a good point about atvs ruining the land. Drones,do no harm.

    They should get their heads out of their ass. If we are licensed 107 we have spent money and time getting licensed. We're not lawbreakers and using excuses like I did not know. They for sure could and should change the law. It would generate more money. It could cause other pilots to get licensed so they could qualify for a drone flying mission in fed parks. Damn, they could even have us attach a GPS tracker to our the drone to make sure we flew only where we were allowed. When we check out we turn the tracker back in. They check the tracker then give back the deposit for the GPS tracker.

    Politicians don't have any incentives to change the law? Drone market is dominated by Chinese. Why would they want to help their sales? Obviously we know why they support gun & ammo companies.

    At least for Part 107 holders they should allow certain areas, ask for a fee which would cover insurance, limit the number of permits per day and let us do our thing. National Parks are big enough and have room for all of us. Stupidity is keeping us from enjoying and them from making some extra money.

    Here's something to be mind blown and indicate as to why there's this odd ban against drone use in National Parks. Lookup 'Missing 411' on Youtube and watch some of the episodes. You'll all be watching many videos on it and eventually after seeing many… you'll get the sense that something sinister is going on in National Parks that some(one/people/groups) do not want revealed. It seems a lot of people go missing in National Parks.

    There needs to be an organization like the ham radio operators have (ARRL) to stand up for the drone operators and not let every cat and mouse city ordinance make rules up as they go.

    The park you were referring to as "Horse Shoe Bend" is actually in Utah near Moab and is called Dead Horse Point. They still have 2-3 specific months available to drone pilots where you can purchase a permit for $10 to fly your drone in the park. Safe Droning!

    how is a dirtbike "dirtier" when they burn a lot less fuel, than your car you drove out there besides most of the time it's only allowed on fire roads and national forest roads, and designated trails that are usually shared with hikers and equestrian users usually where there is some mining or forestry activities. there are very few "open" areas outside of playa, vast areas of desert or sand dunes, i have rode my dirtbike a lot of legal places around the country, i spent a summer driving around 44 states and visited a lot of public lands federal and state, with my bike in the back of the truck. long story short it's just not good to pit any user against another user of public lands. sure there are bad apples in every bunch, just as you stated in this video about illegal drone activities taking place, I've packed out hikers trash before on my bike, just don't judge on that one dude. you don't know the appreciation riders have. are you humping a chain saw to clear public trails voluntarily on your own dime with your local club after winter before the season gets rolling? sorry man don't mean to come off as sounding mean. there are a lot in the dirtbike crowd that do a lot more than you think. hey man, if i seen you out on the trail and you got hurt somehow i'd help and if i couldn't i would leave you my food and water and ride fast as hell to get help.

    I understand the desire of American citizens to escape humanity, noise and buzzing drones when they visit National Parks. On the other hand, drone pilots pay taxes that fund the National Park System. I’d like to see a lobby for changing the rules/laws so that drone flight is legal at least one day a week so long as the pilot honors other basic safety flight rules such as maintaining VLOS, staying under 400’ and not flying over people (and animals).
