    Well, gee, why stop with the ridiculous
    crash reporting scheme and the above nonsense
    and go right to pilot certification, certified toy plane builders
    and mechanics, regular toy plane...

    ;)

    Oh I'll bet the AMA
    has responded, alright.

    and giant belly-laughs.

    I'm sure there are exceptions, but most electrics that make such a racket are probably breaking the AMA park flyer speed limit.

    Vertical, correct me if I am reading you wrong, but,
    are you saying that had AMA shunned multi-rotor/fpv,
    AMA members and/or non-members who only fly "traditional RC" would
    be exempt from this...

    This looks like a fun game, and I'd like to play.

    So,
    a licensed private pilot is playing with his RC buggy on the ground, jumping it off a ramp, on his own property.
    A bee stings him, and he...

    RC is a completely different kind of flying,
    compared to control line flying , that puts
    CL in a bad light when RC'ers do stuff like
    fly into blimps, full scale aircraft, little girls
    in a park,...

    Do you???
    I used metaphor to try to show you what a stupid statement you made about obtaining a
    turbine waiver.
    You are just plain wrong about this, and several folks here have tried to educate...

    That's like asking "how ya gonna solo in a
    full-scale if you can't fly around solo to earn qualification?"
    I hope you see how dumb that sounds.

    Part of AMA' s stated mission is education. We know many of the users and future users of these devices are young folk who CAN be reached by AMA if the ed. programs

    A FPV'er ran into a helicopter.

    Yes, and that was my point, maybe not made well.
    Actually, the "model" multi-rotors came first, and that "full scale" one was modeled upon the models, so to speak.
    Which, if you think about it, was...

    Boy, I guess so.
    The way you and Branaum have been going on here,
    I would have expected a decapitation, amputation,
    or at least a lopped off nose or ear out of this.;)

    A few years ago, an east coast club (google SSRCC, and look for the thread on Flying Giants) ran into some trouble,
    where charter violations were alleged. The AMA did intervene in that case.

    Your taxes pay for the police to clean up the mess after the fact and hopefully bring the perp. to what we euphemistically call "justice".
