    I still can't fathom why some here advocate that the FAA should start issuing permits to fly toy airplanes.?????

    The AMA could have Bob Brown or Rich Hansen who have been working with the FAA fly a multirotor using goggles and a spotter in front of the FAA Headquarters and let it go on from there. Why put the...

    The FAA Interpretation of Section 336 (c) (2) "flown within visual line of sight of the person operating the aircraft" adds the restrictions you quote, not the Law.

    But he is a mega Democratic donor/fund raiser and a friend of POTUS................. wonder how that will figure into getting an exception from the FAA?????

    Just a thought. what's to keep an AMA Club from "buying a plane, putting in a grass strip, and getting on the FAA's airport list?". And would you really need to buy a full scale plane? After all...

    Gotta ask the question. "Would the popularity of FPV be what it is without the ability to record video?". If you could still fly from a cockpit view, but not record the flight would it be as popular?...

    The best solution IMHO to address the concern of the FAA is pilot and spotter. The spotter handles situation awareness and "see & avoid" tasks through verbal commands to the pilot. A "buddy box"...

    Horrace as you have "thrown your hat into the ring" for AMA EVP, could you please state your position on the recent Interpretation of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft published by the FAA?

    I may have missed it, but how is within 5 miles of an airport measured?

    - From the control tower, if there is one?

    Could be much worse.................... lets say the FAA announces a "bounty" program and sets up a hot line offering 10% of any penalty to the person that turned in the "unsafe pilot".

    "Programming" not defined?????

    As far as I know (perhaps some experts here can correct me) there are only two requirements from the AMA to it's membership.
