    Steve,

    While I agree with your opinion that, in an ideal world, we should push back on all of this and maintain a unified front, I am pessimistic that this approach will be successful and since...

    In my opinion, which aligns with BV's (on this issue...), the only way yo distinguish between "traditional" RC flying and FPV, is to dis-allow FPV under AMA rules - which is effectively what the...

    i agree, money talks, but ask any of the current AMA members (who pay the salary of the AMA's leadership) if they want these FPV goof-balls (mostly with multirotors, BTW) brought into the fold, and...

    The Israeli system is for shoulder-fired heat seeking missiles. This aircraft was hit with a vehicle-launched, radar-guided missile system capable of hitting aircraft as high as 42,000'

    Yes, fill it and drain it and see what happens. I would drain it via the pickup line on the UAT that goes to the engine though, not through the fuel fill line - just to be sure that the problem isn't...

    Yep, that's why I like them too - but I don't use them for all my jets. Some, like my F-4, have no trim change with flaps, so I don't feel the need for them. You can also use switchable mixes to...

    There's nothing special about the radio needed for jets. I used to fly one on a Futaba 8U, I still fly a few on a Futaba 9C, and currently also use a 12FG and a 14MZ.

    In my opinion, the 12FG is a...

    True, that was the spirit of the law as the sponsors in Congress meant it, but the FAA is using slick "lawer-eese" to reinterpret it as giving them new authority *now*.

    Matt is spot on with both his comments - the 5 mile limit comes from the new law (the FAA Reauthorization bill), and the major change in FPV is the fact that the FAA says that the actual pilot must...

    I'm assuming he means "a more positive clutch engagement" - meaning that a brushless motor starts faster than a brushed motor, and thus the clutch will be spun out faster and engage the turbine shaft...

    Yes, start with a turbine trainer. With due respect to Quandry, flying a Habu 32, (EDF or turbine), does not prepare you very well for larger, heavier, highly loaded turbine aircraft.

    No, I would not recommend an EDF before a turbine. The smaller EDFs don't fly like a turbine, so there's no real benefit there, and the bigger EDFs are still at the state where you need to be really...
