    RE: Why the AMA is not growing...........

    Don't think anybody is blaming the AMA for a few rotten eggs... some of us are questioning how relevant the AMA is in the current scope of things especially when it comes to the 6-ounce park flyers...

    RE: Why the AMA is not growing...........

    The problem is that AMA membership is no guarantee that the pilot in question will act in a responsible manner (I am assuming an implied tie-in to defend AMA sanctioned clubs/events/site here......

    RE: Why the AMA is not growing...........

    Wow... hadn't realized how much time has passed since this thread got started or since I made a couple of comments.

    RE: Why the AMA is not growing...........

    RE: Why the AMA is not growing...........

    Apples and oranges. AMA membership is not the same as a baseball game. He's objecting on the grounds that he is paying for "x" amount of benefits and not receiving them. For example if you paid for...

    RE: Nitromodels PREDATOR RQ-1B

    RE: Who has the Mamba Max?

    RE: 20% vs 35% fuel "my results"

    A given quantity of fuel contains so many BTUs/calories of energy, right? When you increase the quantity of fuel being burned, you increase the amount of energy being consumed at a given time. The...

    Thermal expansion of the sleeve and piston. Increased nitro introduces more oxygen into the mixture, which in turn means adding more fuel to compensate. More fuel means more heat, and the additional...
