    Let me just clear up a mis-conception about Large Model Aircraft (over 55 lbs.) certification. The AMA DOES NOT certify LMAs. They produce the rules by which LMAs are certified, but it is AMA...

    Geoff,

    I have not tried that combination of aircraft, radio, and PowerBox, but I would suggest that you have one of the RX's as high up in the canopy area as you can and have one of the antennas...

    I have to agree with Vettster here in that a customer should not have to do that.

    However, in today's world, unfortunately, being the "squeaky wheel" is sometimes required to make things happen,...

    I would tend to think that its a software upgrade only now that we have kero start engines, but I of course, don't know for sure.

    I would think that the two issues are, first, getting the kero at...

    That is nice! I spoke to a mechanic who worked on F-100's in the days where they were "metal colored." He said that they were not bare metal, but were in fact, painted with aluminum paint, and were...

    Here's the view in Central Virginia. It may not look like much, but for the mid-Atlantic 18" - 24" in 24 hours is enough to shutdown everything for 4 days...

    As you saw, the problem in the cold is generally that the starting gas doesn't pack enough punch to get the turbine started. The starter motor needs help from the gas to get the RPMs up enough to...

    It was Senator Inofe (R-Okl.) at the behest of the AMA. I would suggest that its probably not a good idea to use section 336 as a political weapon without at least consulting the AMA. Such an...

    The AMA is trying to find a way for its members to pay who do not want to (or can't) use the internet to register - its a *service* to members and at this point, AMA is NOT requiring its members to...

    That is a function of your club, NOT the AMA. The response from the AMA at this point is that FAA registration is NOT a requirement for AMA membership or insurance. That may change in the future,...

    Mike,
