1. March 2 is the deadline to comment on the FAA's plan to require remote-tracking devices on drones, which continues to face scrutiny from the drone community. According to the FPV Freedom Coalition, remote IDs are similar to electronic license plates and would transmit data, like the drone's location or pilot, to federal agencies and law enforcement. If adopted, it would require all drones in the U.S. to become compliant within three years, Reuters reports. The FAA said such a requirement "would address safety, national security, and law enforcement concerns" about integrating drones more into airspace, "while also enabling greater operational capabilities."

Meanwhile, a thread on Reddit's r/drones criticized the rule, saying it will make drone flights more expensive and drive out hobbyist pilots, who want the freedom to fly alongside commercial drone enterprises like Alphabet's Wing. "What's really going on here is the big corporate interests have lobbied and helped write these rules," one user wrote. "They want regulatory protections so no one interferes with their multi-million dollar systems as they roll out commercial drone beyond line of sight delivery services." Another wrote: "So what’s the big problem with this exactly? Boy Scout operators won’t be able to use their drones as they like anymore?" - LEXOLOGY
