    Actually, congress requires the agencies to write regulations in order to enforce laws written by congress. The problem is, that writing regulations is extremely difficult.
  2. There is no policing effort required at all. All...

    There is no policing effort required at all. All the FAA has to do is punish reported and discovered offenders. Judging by the number of morons out there, the fines could pay off our national debt....

    That simply ludicrous. Bureaucrats are hampered, back into a corner if you will, by the legal necessities of being very precise in their language. Any misstep will come back to haunt them.

    If you could understand what I said, it wouldn't be a riddle. FPV is a privilege not a freedom.

    Sad, really you didn't come close to understanding what I just said.
  7. You misquoted me, maybe it is you that doesn't...

    You misquoted me, maybe it is you that doesn't understand. You still haven't listed the rights that are being taken away. Remember, from discussions of long ago, flying FPV is a privilege, not a...

    Section 336 clearly recognizes the model aviation products industry with this statement: "any rule or regulation regarding a model aircraft, or an aircraft being developed as a model aircraft". The...
  9. "The air we breathe" Come on, that is pure...

    "The air we breathe" Come on, that is pure hyperbole. We have ceded nothing to the AMA or the FAA. All we have to do is fly safely and responsible and there will be nothing to fear.
  10. What rights are being taken away? We never had...

    What rights are being taken away? We never had the right to endanger the NAS. If we follow the CBO rules we can still fly. FPV is not lost to us yet. We need to post rational and lucid comments,...

    Brad, when you refer to the Interpretation of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft, are you referring to this statement?

    "As discussed above, if a model aircraft is operated consistently with the...

    You got it bassackwards Brad. It is the people who endanger the NAS who are ignoring 336. 336 gives the FAA the authority to hang 'em by the balls. And for those of us who obey 336, well we get to...

    Good question stick. Here's the thing. First,...

    Good question stick. Here's the thing. First, we model aviators are always on the lookout for new technology that will add to the fun of flying our model airplanes. FPV is such a technology. Now,...
  14. The FAA absolutely cannot require us to join a...

    The FAA absolutely cannot require us to join a CBO. We must only follow the safety guidelines of a "recognized' CBO. The AMA gets nothing out of this and, in fact if they wish recognition as a CBO,...
  15. If an airport does not want you to fly within...

    If an airport does not want you to fly within five miles, they will stop you from flying any way they can. So effectively you need permission. There is no way around it.
  16. Well, you said that the FAA was going to write...

    Well, you said that the FAA was going to write regulations. Well, they will, but the regulations will not cover recreational model aircraft. We are immune from regulation as long as we obey the...
  17. TG, I think you are mistaken about the FAA...

    TG, I think you are mistaken about the FAA regulations. The "interpretation" explicitly states that the FAA will not regulate model aviators who obey section 336 of the modernization act. And,...

    CJ, you have lifted the quote out of context. When the full context is taken into account the quote has a totally different meaning. In this case, as long as you obey the rules of section 336(a)(1...
  19. It would seem to be an indirect (rather passive...

    It would seem to be an indirect (rather passive aggressive to me) recognition of the AMA as a CBO.



    The problem remains, and it is a legitimate concern, that if the airport does not want you...

    The President's Perspective in the September issue of MA says what you are saying ,Hoss. Apparently the FAA is lagging on producing an official recognition of teh AMA as a CBO, although the FAA ...

    What regulations? The FAA has never imposed regulations on our recreational activities. The current brouhaha is in regard to the section 336 interpretation that most people seem to have...

    Yes, a few people have their tin foil caps on too tight. The hobby will prevail as it always has and it will constanly improve with new technology and new ways to have fun safely.
  23. What new rules? The FAA interpretation of...

    What new rules? The FAA interpretation of section 336, albeit excruciatingly narrow, imposes no new rules.

    The real hype will come when some idiot causes a fatal accident.

    Brad, your image is kind of cropped a little bit. The full size image is clearly a middle finger. Our leadership is showing some serious disrespect.
