One More FOIA Request Bears Fruit- FAA RID ConUse

Besides the public service of educating the drone community, the primary motive
for posting this document is to help highlight the folly of poor regulation and policy-
based on fantasy instead of facts.

Everyone says they need data and believe in science, but we see little in the way of educated input or actual expertise in rulemaking. The highlighted folly only shows that feelings and propaganda fuel the power grab of the CAA’s.

Enjoy, you paid for it.
