    I don't think it's useless at all. Because the more the AMA antagonizes the FAA, the more likely stricter rules will be put into place. And if push comes to shove, the next budget bill that passes...

    That electric stuff and multi-rotors is what got the FAA's attention in the first place. I have one air frame left. If I can't put in a glow engine and fly it as a piston-powered model plane.... ...

    The real problem here, is that there is NO RISK TO THE OPERATOR of the drone. Therefore, safety measures are not as likely to be adhered to by the owner of a model plane, like on a full scale...

    I also got rid of Forbes. All I get is the "Welcome" page.

    They're getting even easier to fly. And BIGGER, too. This one's almost the size of a Volkswagen Beetle. It only has TWO buttons! :D

    Multi rotors with cameras are here to stay, whether anybody likes it or not. Fixed-wing "line of sight" model planes got mixed in, because the AMA opened their mouths, and riled the FAA over Section...

    I've got another question: What if you have an ARF, never assembled, in its original box. No radio, no engine, nothing to make it flyable. Just the air frame alone. Does that have to be...

    Here's another point for me getting out of the hobby: I had a medical certificate denied about 20 years ago. One day, I called and inquired. My name is still in their data base. So what happens...

    HoundDog: You and I might not agree on everything. But I do believe that you got it right with this post. Had the AMA picked their battles and stayed away from Congress, saved their money, and...

    I had an Ultimate kit a couple years ago, but ended up having to sell it. It was a beautiful kit. I'm assuming it went to a collector, because nothing was heard or seen about it since. I also have...

    May I suggest using Amazon's new technology??? You could probably send it to the White House direct. Good luck with that, son.

    Perhaps you can defy the AMA, and deliver the letter over the White House lawn. Make sure President Obama gets the letter, and reads it. What's there to lose? It's always the squeaky wheel that...

    I guess I'm lucky I got out of this hobby. Sold my RC stuff a couple years ago. All I can say is, don't register, and fly at your own peril. If law enforcement gets a bit over zealous, then make...

    Looks to me like people are going to have to go back to control-line flight. I don't think the FAA considers a control-line model to be an aircraft, since it is tethered like a kite.

    Exactly! I read Section 336, and the FAA can LEGALLY require that model airplanes be registered, since they are classified as a remotely piloted AIRCRAFT. And if the FAA wants, they can require a...

    I think you're a bit late to the punch bowl. The FAA has already made up its mind. Time to register your slow stick.

    Quads are becoming widely available, for practical reasons. People simply want to view their locations from a different vantage point. There are some big differences between a quad, and other types...

    Looks like the AMA is being let off the hook. So that 50% Extra with the 250cc multi-cylinder is safe!

    And much of this is what gives me pause, when the media directs its attention specifically to the quads with cameras. I have seen my share of AMA fields, where the members are there to do nothing...

    That's 99% of the model airplanes flying these days. I visited a sporting goods store, and even a local department store. The brands are different, but all of them are quads. All this reminds me...

    FPV, line of sight, or not. A drone is still capable of flying at altitudes of several hundred feet, while still remaining visible without aids. I once flew a model rocket that was not much larger...

    I am sure the AMA wants to exempt anything but quads. So buying a regular fixed-wing will avoid all the registration and paper work hassle, because it's a "model airplane". Attach a camera and...

    I guess I'll voice my opinion. "Traditional" would mean either control-line, or free flight, where it all originated. RC didn't come about until some time around the early 1950's. In light of all...

    Much of that started a number of years ago before quads were even invented, when someone put a camera inside a 1/4 scale Cub, with a video down link. Then, flew the model plane up to 20,000 feet...
