I would love it if someone designed an FPV floatplane that comes in under just under the 250g limit. There are self-contained camera/transmitter/antenna modules for less than $25 now that are only a few grams. Something with a two or three 5g or 3.3g servos and a small 2S battery/motor combo could likely come in under 250g. Then you could go to any pond and fly fpv without worrying about regulations.

As a reminder, flying under 250 grams and flying recreational operations only releases us from remote ID. We must still comply with all of the other small Unmanned Aerial System SUAS) regulations. Please take a look at the FPV Freedom Coalition home page where we list what you need to fly under recreational rules http://www.fpvfc.org

And, if you fly an aircraft which is under the 250 gram threshold and you are using it for non recreational operations, you must have a part 107 remote pilot certificate and the aircraft must have remote ID.
