AMA Drone Report 02.20.20: Aerobatic Drone, Michigan Ruling, AMA v SecTrans

Also: 19000 NPRM Comments, ABA on Drones, RID Flyer, DJI Releases RID Video

A drone capable of carrying a person and performing aerobatics has been built and flown by Drone Champions AG as a way to promote its Drone Champions League video game.

The DCL has released a video of the drone flying in Croatia. While the aircraft is designed to carry a person, that person is not the pilot. The aircraft is intended to be flown from the ground. The so-called "Big Drone" is built around an all-carbon aerodynamically-faired frame with six arms supporting two coaxial rotors for a total of 12 rotors. After more than a year in the making, the challenge to a drone ordinance passed in Genesee County, Michigan has resulted in what is being described as "a huge win" for drone operators. Writing on the UAV Legal News and Discussion Facebook page, Ryan J. Latourette, Director of Regulatory Affairs at Great Lakes Drone Company LLC, said that in a recent action granted a permanent injunction against the county precluding enforcement of their ordinance that disallowed the use or possession of drones in county parks. The injunction was sought out by a coalition of drone operators in Michigan after one of their own, Jason Harrison, was handcuffed, detained, and had both his drone and all electronics confiscated for legally flying in a Genesee County park back in December of 2018. AMA has sent U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary, Elaine Chao, a letter to address her recent statement regarding UAS and remote identification. Chao fails to take the modeling community into account in her interview. AMA, via this letter, notes that, “ the FAA’s proposed remote ID rule is overly complicated, potentially expensive, difficult and in many cases impossible for modelers to comply with. If implemented as is, the rule will be extraordinarily burdensome for the model aviation community and will disincentivize participation in the hobby. We have already seen a demonstrative drop in membership and participation in the hobby with the mere proposal of the Remote ID rule.” All this -- and MORE in today's episode of the AMA Drone Report!!!
