    I understand where you're coming from. FWIW, I'm not an officer or board member, so I was not part of the team that decided this. As a member, I did vote in favor of the by-law change. The idea as...
  2. Maybe my club's actions are premature, but I...

    Maybe my club's actions are premature, but I don't see how it's irresponsible. The way I see it, the registration concept is here to stay. It seems to be a matter of whether or not the FAA can be...

    I've used both Cool Power and Omega and have not found a reduction in slime with the Cool Power.

    I understand that not everyone sees our approach as the way forward.
  5. No, we inform them that they're not eligible to...

    No, we inform them that they're not eligible to fly at our field as they're not in compliance with the club's by-laws.
  6. No worries Dave. Not at all offended. I...

    No worries Dave. Not at all offended. I recognize my club's approach is likely not the ideal solution and I see a point to the concern to the pirating issue to the number. We're not making FAA...

    Not sure how you arrived at us looking to violate the marking requirement? We're following the same principles that we would for AMA Safety Code adherence. We'll keep a roster that documents...

    For better or worse, my club chose to update the by-laws requiring both AMA and FAA registration in order to be eligible to fly. As part of enforcement, members will be required to provide their FAA...

    The problem isn't the $5, it's the fact that the government is putting a program in place that I suspect will have zero effect on curbing irresponsible use of remotely controlled aerial vehicles. ...
  10. Next to none of them will register because all of...

    Next to none of them will register because all of these products were manufacturers before this genius registration scheme went public. There's nothing in the box to prompt them to do so. Even...

    The airplane and helicopter crowd has been largely effective in policing itself. We didn't start showing up on The Today Show and the national news with regularity until drones entered the scene. ...

    People wont have to quit in droves. The hobby will slowly self extinguish. The door's been cracked with "$5 and a number." It will likely be kicked open somewhere down the road with more...

    The door's been cracked with "$5 and a number" and will likely be kicked wide open with further regulation. Why? Because this registration will have no positive effect against the irresponsible use...

    I think that the AMA got a slow start on this issue. Ultimately, they got their act together and started pulling the right levers and pushing the right buttons to defend their memberships interests....

    I suppose that one in a position to enforce the rule would suggest that even though a flyer is not a member of a recognized CBO, they would be obligated to adhere to the safety code of a recognized...

    I don't know if that language suggests that it's signed, sealed and delivered. The use of the word "would" leaves wiggle room. Use of the word "will" would have been much stronger.

    Actually, it looks to be applied upside down. The number on the tape is 128. It's possible that that's an inspector number.

    I had had the same thing happen on the original install of the gear. I had one blind nut come loose. Was able to get a small screwdriver in there to take up space as I tightened it. Not sure what...

    +1 on the video. I'm hoping that you pulled that windscreen and hooked up your ailerons and flaps before flight. :D I about have the wings done on mine. As far as the struts go, I'm going to put...

    After spending so time looking at the manual yesterday, I think I know how I'll modify the struts so that they can collapse for transportation/storage of the wings.

    1. The "L" brackets attached...

    According to FedEx, my plane will arrive on Tuesday. The struts will be one of the initial things I'll be working on. My thinking is to find a way to adapt the strut hardware that Hangar 9 uses on...

    I have many airplanes that use Spektrum receivers and use both Hitec and JR analog servos powered by 6V NiMh batteries. I have not witnessed any issues with servos and receivers not playing nice...
