For the sake of trying to remain positive, I will say at least it is something.

It's easy to say these people are doing something, but beyond listing names, what are they really doing?

Posted a few days ago, the owner of Aloft Hobbies reported this part of a note from them on his forum, reprinted here as an example to the above question:
As a united front and voice, the AMA Coalition visited several offices today to convey our concerns regarding the proposed rules on Remote ID.

Our government affairs team reported that our message has been well received. Please keep in mind, that the team has two additional days of meetings which include the House and Senate FAA Oversight Committees. When I receive an update I will certainly pass it along.

The following offices were visited today;

Angie Craig, Representative of Minnesota
Rodney Davis ,Representative of Illinois
Steve Cohen, Representative Tennessee
Kyrsten Sinema, Senator, Arizona
Eleanor Holmes Norton, Representative District of Columbia

Interesting, I see Futaba listed on the site as a supporting member but missing is Horizon Hobby. Perhaps our letter writing campaign as individuals should expand beyond just NPRM responses and letters to our government representatives and include manufacturers that we do business with to encourage them to get on board with this new coalition.

Thoughts?

Scott Page posted a copy of a YouTube video that Horizon released to inform everyone about the issues. They were heavy on the "pro" side for traditional models. Threw video and GPS flight under the bus. They have since taken them down. Scott's speculation is pressure from the FPV guys. You can still find it in some of the forums, as a separate file. It sounds like they are doing their own thing, but still doing something.

I keep seeing where the technology to implement the remote id isn't even developed yet. I ran across a video today that shows that, if the FAA is so hot to regulate drones, there are systems available to them to do just that and to leave the rest of us alone. Check it out and see what you think.

Let the FAA foot the bill for the control they so desire!

That system relies on DJI's version of RID and does not meet any of the provisions set forth in the NPRM. Basically we have seen the framework FAA wants to use. I doubt we will see anything but some small tweaks of that framework in the final rule. We are screwed, only the details of how badly remain to be seen.
