I know you might not need FPV at all, if you're just panning a quad around a house or something, but the OP said he was flying FPV. That's a second, and potentially much larger regulatory problem, right?
I would think so, but it does not seem to slow anyone down who is going to do it anyway. What's one more govt. agency?

A question for the OP? Do you have a HAM license?
