Call me cynical but...........
« on: February 13, 2019, 11:56:31 PM »

"The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has posted a rule in the Federal Register requiring small drone owners to display the FAA-issued registration number on an outside surface of the aircraft. Owners and operators may no longer place or write registration numbers in an interior compartment. The rule is effective on February 23. The markings must be in place for any flight after that date.

When the FAA first required registration of small drones in 2015, the agency mandated that the registration marking be readily accessible and maintained in readable condition. The rule granted some flexibility by permitting the marking to be placed in an enclosed compartment, such as a battery case, if it could be accessed without the use of tools.

Subsequently, law enforcement officials and the FAA’s interagency security partners have expressed concerns about the risk a concealed explosive device might pose to first responders upon opening a compartment to find a drone’s registration number. The FAA believes this action will enhance safety and security by allowing a person to view the unique identifier directly without handling the drone."


So the terrorist will have the decency to register and display the number externally thus lulling said first responder into a false sense of security. What next? Chocolate coated grenades? You couldn't make this stuff up.

That is so stupid it's ridiculous. So where on a quad can you stick the identifier where it is always able to be seen without touching the quad? If it's top mounted and the quad lands upside down then someone has to handle it, there by negating the change anyway.
More ill though out rubbish.......If only this stupidity was confined to FAA!!!

soon you'll have to pull a banner with a registration number on it so it can be seen from the ground.
