Tyler Brennan and Jonathan Rupprecht tell Dronelife why they are taking the FAA to court over remote ID

Drone news service www.Dronelife.com today features an interview by Dawn Zoldi with Tyler Brennan and Attorney Jonathan Rupprecht, plaintiffs in the “RaceDayQuads.com v. Federal Aviation Administration,” case, the first Remote IDlawsuit challenging the newly published rule.

In the interview the two explain why they have brought the case on behalf of the FPV (first person view) drone racing community.

“I discovered FPV drone racing in 2015 on YouTube, and from there, like many who enjoy the hobby, quickly became addicted and built an immense passion for FPV,” according to Tyler Brennan. “Fast forward to late 2019 when the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Notice of Public Rulemaking (NPRM) for Remote Identification (RID) started circulating. It was such an aggressive proposition that it became clear to those within our hobby that we were largely overlooked in the NPRM and that how it was currently written would almost certainly kill our hobby. Quickly our FPV hobby as a whole sprung into action launching various initiatives. As a business owner in the space I was afforded the unique opportunity to be able to lead the legal effort against the NPRM.”
