    I visited a club again. I asked about quads, and was told that they go where the helis are, which makes sense. He also told me that there's really nothing exciting about watching a quad fly. They...

    How do you folks in this hobby know that your days are "numbered"? I'm not seeing any movement on that new funding bill yet, and I think I can be reasonably sure that model aviation won't have the...

    It looks to me like you can fly an RC jet, and not have to worry about it. On the other hand, I did visit a club that was out flying a few days ago. Nobody there was talking. As a former hobbyist,...

    I looked at the AMA site, and it appears they are on it. When all is said and done, the hobby will continue as it always has. I see nothing to be concerned about.

    Looks like this bill is a long way off yet. I think we got a few months, at least. At this point, I seriously doubt that anything will come out of it. People are going to do what they want to do. ...

    Modelers may be in an uproar over this act, but people will have to start to realize that model aviation started with free flight, and then went to control-line. RC is not traditional model...

    I would have to disagree on the ultralight being more of a safety concern than a drone (model airplane). Drones do NOT have an occupant, so the pilot of an ultralight is less likely to take the...

    I think the AMA won't have much of a choice but to cater to commercial interests, if it wants to survive. The unfortunate truth is, revenue is not generated through model aviation as it is with...

    I can relate this to you, franklin_m: I remember a time when a guy at a club flew a Stick. It had a 4-stroke OS Max, and no muffler. He would fly that plane all day. Bring it in, refuel, and take...

    I am wondering if this bill made it out of committee yet. I think I read that it has on another thread, I could be wrong. So what impact would a knowledge test have on model aviation?

    Just to get back on topic. Yes, you are correct. People can care less about rules, regulations, and guidelines. And this is why the Senate has proposed this new funding legislation. As I have...

    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.
