    I belive that the people that do the inspections are not paid to perform said inspection, so the cost to the AMA is nil butI think for non AMA members to receive a inspection $25 would be a fair cost.

    Yes we have to wait and see how this plays out but I do wish the AMA would not have opted to try to make special deals with the gov for AMA members only instead of deals for RC aviation in general.

    I noticed in the letter to the AMA the FAA did not say it was mandatory to join the AMA in order to fly over 400 ft and I hope this is the case, as far as I am concerned until the FAA demands

    I don’t think the FAA has bought into anything and I don’t think we have heard the last of the 400 ft issue either. IMO it was congress that drink the AMA koolaid and I think if there ever is a...

    A lot of us think like you do and until I see something in writing from the FAA I will continue to think the same.

    In order for another RC CBO to start up they would have to get most if not all existing RC clubs to charter with them so that their members would have a place to fly. They would have to offer more...

    And that is a good thing because until they name a specific CBO in writing and also put in writing that all who fly RC must join that CBO we don’t have to worry about being prosecuted for not being a...

    I agree, and I did see the video the AMA put out a week or so ago where in the video the statement was made you have to be a AMA member to operate under their programming.

    The question was do all modelers have to join the AMA to keep the FAA off their back? There is nothing in writing that I know of from congress or the FAA to that effect.

    IMO until the FAA or congress names a CBO in writing and also put in writing that you must join that CBO then we don’t have to join one. I also think if you don’t do anything to be noticed by

    Models and full scale have coexisted for years with no problems so there is absolutely no reason for a airport to have any say about what is going on elsewhere that does not directly conflict with...

    Yes I am aware of the aircraft rule that I believe came out in 2012 or 2013, My point was that no airport should have the right to interfere with something that is going on of their property unless...

    Airports should not have the right to deny someone the permission to fly their model just because they are within 5 miles of the airport. The only time a airport should have any say should be if the ...
