FAA sUAS Regulations

Does anyone know where to find the supposed Dos and Don'ts regulating onboard electronics for sUAS?

I have a question about certain types of radio equipment to be used on mine.  A wideband receiver that reports GPS data (coords and time), frequency and received signal strength indicator (RSSI) to my ground station whee a circle that stays put on the map will be drawn around my current acft position.  After the platform gets several hits the circles will all have something in common....the position of the transmitter.   

Now for the punchline,....a friend that works for one of the big $$$ UAS companies tells me that the FAA forbids any kind of DF equipment on board civilian UAS in national airspace.  There is not really any "DF" equipment here on the platform, the processing is done on the ground statio.

Let me know if anyone has knowledge of this or a link to the FAA reg that specifies it.

Could we get a FAA Forum started for the members to ask questions and also start a running list of topics that we can use to our benefit as a group by dealing with the many safety ad command & control issues that will arise from the FAA in the future?

    Thats bigger than the engine on my trailbike when I was a kid!

     

    Yeah, you need a servo to control throttle. Actually an ESC is a relatively new way of converting the signal for a servo to control an electric motor. You might get more help from IC RC airplane groups and forums. This is actually "old school" technology, it's been around long before electric motors and ESCs.

    Sometimes you have to go back in time to get to the future. : )

  • The FCC is the authority in the USA. Depending on the purposes and frequencies used, there are a variety of regulations as well as restrictions and often licensing. Getting caught violating the FCC regualtions can definitely ruin your day or life.

     

    From 2009 FCC Part 95.215 regarding radio controlled aircraft:

    "If a Federal court finds that you have willfully and knowingly violated any provision of the Communications Act, you may be fined up to $10,000, or you may be imprisoned for one year, or both. (See section 501 of the Communications Act.)"
