Question Remote ID Questions

Hey folks!
I'm new to all of this. I've been flying for about one season. I really enjoy the hobby, and I'm excited to acquire some more aircraft and transmitters for both my son and I. Obviously, Remote ID weighs heavily on my purchasing decisions. I really don't know much about how this is all supposed to work operationally. We live in a place with no AMA club field, and we just go to a public soccer field with about 10 other pilots every Sunday. There's no runway, but as far as I can tell, everyone complies with the FAA registration regulations and many, including myself, are AMA members. It's not even an AMA recognized club, just a collection of people with interests in flying RC aircraft.
As such, we don't really qualify to be registered as a FRIA, which means I'll have to somehow make my larger aircraft compliant with Remote ID. A quick google search returns a few solutions for drones, but I don't really see anything for RC aircraft such as the E-Flite UMX Radian, or the the Carbon Cub, for examples.

Does anyone know of any out-of-the-box add on modules that would make such aircraft compliant with the upcoming Remote ID rules? I guess I just expected that manufacturers such as Spektrum would start rolling out new transmitters, recivers, ESCs, etc, that I would just replace certain components in my arsenal, and I'd be compliant. That does not appear to be the case, so how do I do this?

Thanks for everyone's help!

Though its coming up, the deadline to comply isn't until Sept 16th. There's really no modules available yet and especially none for a decent price. I'd stay tuned, follow the AMA's government relations blog.because it wouldn't shock me if the deadline got moved back.

That all said, most AMA clubs started exactly how you describe, a small group of like minded individuals getting together to fly. You could form a club with as few as 5 members if you have permission to fly there and ask for a FRIA

Default Thanks

Thank you for the information! I was worried I was going down the wrong path and was missing something that everyone else knew about. I'll cross my fingers that it gets pushed back, or scaled back (even better).
