The simplest answer to your question is in your 2005 renewal kit. In fact, you might just read it aloud at the next club meeting to resolve this issue for everyone and keep him cornered as not knowing what he is responsible for, or not.

See the Executive Council Meeting minutes for April 2004.

http://www.modelaircraft.org/0404ecminutes.asp

"MOTION III: Moved and seconded to modify Safety Code Radio Control item 9 by deleting the following: “nor should any part of the model, other than the landing gear touch the ground.” Effective immediately.
MOTION passed: 7 yes, 5 no (I, IV, V, VII and XI), 1 abstain (NAA)."

You can fly your model however you want. However, you can not expect the AMA insurance to be cover this activity. If your club has it's liability covered by AMA insurance, ditto. Fly as you want, but be responsible for your own actions.
