The article states existing drones would be banned from flying when the rule becomes law? Did I read that right?
That is what it stated .
Either drone operator will be required to install the proposed tracking devices or be banned from operating the drone .
A current drone owner may wonder, " How are they going to know if I'm flying my drone out here in the boondocks? "
It is my understanding that if you ever hook your DJI built drone to your computer and go to DJI site for installing updates , that your drone uploads to DJI all info about every flight your drone has made. Therefore, if you have registered your drone with FAA and have a number, FAA could access DJI records about when and where you fly. If a drone operator had not installed the tracking equipment I assume that FAA would come looking for you and your drone.
