    I don't think they accept Monopoly money for the $25,000 fine.

    And if you don't pay it's probably not LEGO prison thet you spend time in.

    I broke down and registered. To register there are a group of statements and you have to click the "I agree" radio box to proceed.

    Happily the first item is "I agree to fly under 400 ft". Rather...

    I pull the pins, wax them with a hard paste wax, then put them back in and epoxy the hinges. That way even if some epoxy wicks into the hinge joint the pin is still "lubricated" and will easily move...

    Yes - he is unsafe in overflying roads, vehicles, homes & structures, people in general.

    Obviously not an AMA member or he would have agreed not to do those things.

    Yes sir.

    I'm old school enough that I try not to use sub trims when installing the linkages. I still remember before computer transmitters when there were no model memories, so if you had more...

    Oh, I agree. Nothing worse than trying to crab in a model with the ailerons reversed. ;-)

    Oh, I disagree there. Our club has many restrictions that the AMA doesn't require.

    We require members take a turn mowing. No AMA guidelines there. We require attendance or written club waiver...

    "Looks like just under 400 ft to me."

    I truly have no idea how high my two-meter glider routinely gets. Interesting times ahead for certain.

    Certainly the club can have a position of don't ask/don't tell regarding whether members are in compliance. We don't verify US Citizenship, up to date driver's licenses, vehicle registration of...

    Didn't the membership vote on it? I'm in two clubs and changes to the By-Laws or Field Rules require a majority vote. I anticipate it will be coming along directly. One of the presidents has...

    I wouldn't say abandon it. It's a viable technique for cross wind landings if they can't be avoided. I just don't think it can be a mix. Kind of had to be adapted to conditions.

    But for the...

    I didn't see a mention of the guidance method described in the FAA guidelines. In fact, they specifically mentioned paper airplanes and Frisbees being exempted because of weight - not guidance. I...

    What about model rockets? Something like the E-series Estes Ventris that weighs a pound and can reach 2,000 feet? Do they have to tie a 400 ft string on it?

    That would be odd indeed. I own two CZCs and know of at least six others locally and no one had to reconfigure their struts. I would bet $1 you have something positioned incorrectly. Too late to...

    In the same way that registering all males over the age of 15 as potential sex offenders will stop pedophiles.

    It would be a big mistake to try and put it on a switch or as a mix. You crab by giving rudder and enough ailerons to keep the wings level. The amount is fully dependent on speed and any...

    It is interesting to think how these may play out. The FAA says your registration number can be in the battery compartment. But if they don't have a search warrant can they ask you to peek in and...

    An unmanned flying "vehicle" of 0.55 to 55 pounds operated by an amateur/unpaid pilot.

    They never specified quads or multi-rotors. So that's gliders, control-line models, about all glow models,...
