Any news on the FAA ruling that no RC vehicle allowed above 400 feet?


Any news on the FAA ruling that no RC vehicle allowed above 400 feet? I saw a AMA YouTube video on this matter.

Follow the 400 foot thread, but take it all with a grain of salt. Also use the AMA's,link,to write your Congress critters.

It's already getting kind of buried, so here's a link-- https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...&postcount=249

Someone might want to consider posting this as a "sticky"

Thank you everyone that was kind enough to let me know about the 400 thread. And for that one person who whine about yet another 400 thread. Sorry but it doesn't cost you a dime and no one is forcing you to click on my thread!

Somebody just posted a schedule update for it. The schedule shows they are going to be talking about hobbyist sUAS at 155 EST.

As a quick update on this, I have on and off been listening to the meeting. The agenda said hobbyist sUAS would be talked about at 1:55 but they have been talking about hobbyists on and off during the meeting. And sometimes it is hard to tell if a guy who is talking or making recommendations is talking about commercial drone stuff or hobbyist stuff. So I'm going to keep listening.

...and it was a big nothing. Only notable news is AC91-57c (an update to 91-57b "Exception for Limited Recreational Operations of Unmanned Aircraft") expected in spring of 2020, and the content for the mandated knowledge test for recreational flyers is 95% completed (with input from the AMA and Small UAV Coalition).

For those who don't recall an Advisory Circular is only Advisory in nature and not regulatory. Although normally they certainly do reference regulations elsewhere.
