A plea to the model aviation community

Our legislative problem

Unless you've been incredibly busy flying (in which case, I'm jealous!), you will have noticed that a lot of jurisdictions are considering, or have enacted, laws governing model aircraft. Actually the laws usually deal with drones, or if you have better educated politicians, unmanned aerial vehicles or systems.
These laws are a problem for us, the rc model aircraft enthusiasts, because they almost always include our models. Nuts, in at least one case, it unintentionally included kites!

Some FCC regulations
