    BTW unless I am mistaken, model rocketry has a similar "advisory" rule near airports, but I don't hear 5 times a day on the news about high powered rockets. Ironic.
  2. is the media misstatement of "5 mile from airport" law intentional?

    I hear and see more and more this type of statement in the news:

    "It’s an ironic choice of merchandise, since flying drones within five miles of an airport is forbidden by federal law....

    Great old thread, I do the same thing but as the ghost of David Reid said, make sure the hinges line up. I usually pull the screws out of the hinges and drill them out for a wire hinge pin that runs...

    What are you basing this on? Do you know of any cases whatsoever of the AMA's insurance carrier denying a claim because of a safety code violation?

    Any gimbal rig set up for a Mobius should work for #16 type keycam. I got my mobius for maybe $75? I don't remember.

    I disagree. One of the last big "public" votes on this indicates a very divided Executive Council. One vote changed could reverse this.

    I have seen votes change on some older rules changes, so I...

    If enough people have such a sheeple attitude then yes nothing will happen.

    Exactly. The timing of the dues increase is totally tone deaf to this drone issue. Everyone will link it to the drone government work. Perception = reality

    Yes at what cost to get each new member? Why not just give all new members US$50 bucks, we would get a lot of new members that way too. We got 50,000 new ones by signing up kids for free. Imagine how...

    The AMA could spend 10 cents or 10 million, it is not going to affect the outcome.

    Thanks I will look for the EPDM. The stuff I have is like the pool noodle noted (come to think of it) and in one use it smashed as flat as pool table felt.

    Hi Vin,

    Back in the old days of single channel, rate only gyros, the nose gear steering was a "go to" application. In your case, I would think about a relatively cheap single channel gyro (Futaba...

    I meant that it COULD be powered up with weigh on the scales, not that is had to be. Tare and calibration are not the same thing as far as I know.

    My GUESS is that this unit was designed to be energized with a weight already on it. Hence all of the calibration woes.

    A typical el cheapo scale has to be turned on with no weight on it order to...
