In today's environment with the pending FAA NOTAM and the AMA's efforts to preserve turbine modelling, the jet community tends to get understandably concerned when someone suggests that they aren't going to follow the rules. Given your post #27 and #31 in which (perhaps in jest) you display a certain cavalier attitude towards the AMA rules
(they are not guidelines), the negative responses you are getting from members of the jet community is hardly surprising. A lot of us have a significant amount of money invested in this hobby and would like jet modelling to continue. Operating outside the rules jeopardizes the future of this hobby.
You've indicated that you are an AMA member and a waiver holder but that there seems to be a bit of a paperwork error at AMA HQ. Fair enough, mistakes like this can happen and you've indicated that you'll contact them to sort it all out.
In the mean time and in the interest of diffusing this concern, would you mind telling us the names of the CD's who signed off your waiver. I'm sure that they'll vouch for you and we can all take a bit of a breather.
Regards, and good luck with your F-18,
