First off, drones need their own classification separate from model aircraft because of their inherent differences in both primary function as a flying photo/video platform, and the quad-based design, which influences their flight characteristics. Camera-equipped traditional-winged craft should not be classified as drones, but RC craft more specifically.

Secondly, droners need a drone-specific national organization that is wholly separate from and not officially linked to or governed by the AMA, since their primary focus is traditionally-configured flying machines such as RC planes and single-rotor copters. As the "elder statesmen" in the field, they would support legislation that fully protects their interests while negatively impacting the interests of drone pilots, if push came to shove.

I just finished writing to my Representative and Senators, voicing my objections to the commercialization of our airspace. This Alliance is only interested in claiming our airspace for their own monetary gain.

Who are the members of this Alliance? A boycott of their products/services is definitely in order.
