    Remote id for drones is coming sooner than later

    https://www.federalregister.gov/docu...rcraft-systems

    I realize options vary but if you fly a drone you should read this. Current proposal for remote id will require a internet connection to send info to FAA.

    If you canít connect you are limited to restricted fields like a AMA field.

    So if you prefer to fly in class G airspace over remote parts of the US in theory you will be flying illegally. Also if you use a smart controller from DJI you wonít be able to get to the internet unless you are near a unlocked WiFi network. Which are not common. DJI seems to feel that sometime in the future they can make software updates to allow drones running DJIGO4 in combination with a cell phone to connect. However if you are in remote class G airspace you will not connect even with cell service as there will be none.

    This a huge issue and if you currently fly a drone you need to respond to the FAA feedback section in the article.

    In 3 years the plan will be any drone that canít make a remote id connection will not be allowed to fly anywhere besides a AMA or similar type environment.

    +1 Already not worth investing in a drone for photography in my area because of restrictions so I'll probably be selling my drone soon.
