Kara Calvert, Executive Director of the Drone Manufacturers Alliance:      "DMA is studying the implications of today's registration-related court ruling, but believes the existing system has worked well to protect the interests of safe and responsible pilots as well as the interests of society at large. As we wait for word on whether the FAA will appeal this ruling, we hope all sides see the benefit of a reasonable and minimally restrictive form of basic regulation that has helped make drone operations in America overwhelmingly safe. We look forward to working with policymakers on a long-term legislative solution.”

I think it's not a good thing they shut this system down, as it was one of the easiest and user-friendliest systems worldwide to be able to fly your drone without much administrative hassle. It is a pity that even for great-working systems, there is someone who tries to erode and we will all end up with a much more complicated system after all.

While we all get  the modellers have never been the problem as well as the people who really love the aviation industry.

Changing this ruling is understandable and the FAA should not have messed with the 336 frame work. Now that this is in the open part 107 is to stay. The modellers are community based and covered
by there AMA codex.

Where does this leave the normal consumer who is not an AMA member or community based organization?  This brings to mind the soccer moms who will use now the new SPARK to fly over people (there own) and fly where ever they want. Do you really believe that Best Buy, Walmart .... will teach them what and what not to do?  NOPE

The FAA will come down now even harder on the new flyers which is really bad. I will be worse than the 5 dollars for the registration.

While yes the process was easy registering my Phantom 4 Pro and it was only $5, that is not the problem. I guess my problem comes with park rangers and FAA agents viewing videos on YouTube and other social media platforms and then issuing fines based on the video content only and not based on an actual encounter. This is like digging through someones closet and finding dirt. Also, I promise you they are recording each and every flight and all the specs associated with each flight. If the DJI app can save and show you the specs of each flight then certainly just like all our cell phone calls, text messages and pictures are illegally recorded and captured by our own spy agencies, the NSA has your flights recorded. I'm certain of that. I fly safe and am new to all this (all the more reason to fly extra safe) but I do feel that the regulations make it very confusing and very difficult to fly in this great big atmosphere easily without fear of big brother.

Anything that gets into the government's hands will become a mess very shortly.  Nothing but a bunch of morons.

What am I missing here.  Now that it is obviously an over reach of the FAA, to require drones to register with them, how is that a bad thing for the drone industry and hobbyists?

Seems like they have been told to back off as they have no jurisdiction below 500 feet for hobbyists.
