I have around 20 fixed wing models, ranging from 40" span CTH flying wings up to a 1/12th scale SR 71. No drones.

I know that I am not (yet) affected by these or similar regs but there are rumblings about electronic IDs on this side of the pond as well.

You should expect that if the FAA is successful implementing these new rules in the U.S., these rules will form a basis for ICAO to propose and adopt worldwide.

There is no need to make a post and the poll does not record who responded or how. So you are not helping by not giving an honest answer. I am trying to get some data to include in my response and for others to use.

Well, then since nothing said or posted here will have any affect it makes me wonder why you are posting so often in these forums.

Grow up!

Some folks out here a actively trying to work this issue. Numbers translate into cost implications which can be used to make points.

It's quite possible that a lot of people haven't seen this survey. Is there some way of making it more visible?

I have over 100 planes that are airworthy right now.

If the Remote ID went through as it was proposed right now with a fee of $2.50 per airframe per month it would cost me over $250 a month to keep my hangar airworthy.

The FAA can shove it.

I sincerely hope it is $2.50 per user, not aircraft, and the user can have multiple (unlimited) aircraft.....

Please don't take this as a criticism but as a question. How on earth does one properly maintain 50+ flyable model airplanes? I would place my limit at maybe 8. Could the FAA use this in their favor claiming that when someone owns this many models it's probable that they aren't maintained properly?
