The FAA is taking this action to provide a more flexible, performance-based approach for these operations than what was considered for Micro UAS. The committee will begin its work in March and issue its final report to the FAA on April 1.
All this wheeling and dealing around, why, it isn't for money, it's for fun.
Money's just the way we keep score.
