If the FCC does not permit modifying such things then that will make some FPV related RF mods off limits to FPV'ers that are licensed hams. Of course 99.9% of the FPV fan base does not have a ham license, so to them any new restrictions mean nothing. But I prefer to run under the privileges granted by the ham ticket and hopefully there are no new restrictions to our RF device modifications.
