    And this really brings the point: The AMA should have kept its mouth shut, and not got involved with politics in the first place. It will one day turn around and bite them.

    I see no possibility that an RC plane weighing less than 55 pounds will ever take out a full-scale aircraft. Not even a Piper Cub, which is considered a light-sport aircraft. This was demonstrated...

    I looked at the comments on the NPRM. I'm seeing that the majority of people commenting unfavorably to the AMA, models, and drones. Better to leave things unsaid. Adding more comments will only...

    Here's my understanding: You can go directly into AMA competition and make money off the winnings. You can test fly new designs of model planes, and get paid for it. You can get paid for teaching...

    Very true, Sport Pilot. The AMA would have died long ago had they not promoted RC. It's what everybody wanted back then, and they got it. Today, everybody wants a quad copter and it's either...

    And you are correct. I've never had to take a test to buy a gun, or show an NRA membership card either. That's the way it should be. As long as you are a law abiding citizen, you have the right to...

    People are going to do what they want to do as long as model airplanes can be acquired with nothing more than a valid credit card or cash in the pocket. Safety means nothing, and the AMA does not...

    I made a statement at one point, that I didn't care if the model flying hobby got drowned in its own bureaucracy. My main concern was that it would make more sense for me to use what skills I have...

    I really don't see a problem with the rule making the way it's written, so there is no reason for me to comment. Somebody tell me: What is wrong with it? It does not affect modeling at all. It...

    As long as RC toys are available at Wally World, people are going to do their own thing. They're not going to be bothered with taking a test and carrying a slip in their back pocket.

    My take on it is this: The AMA has never had any real rules, or a protocol for any type of regulation. A modeler can do anything he wants, because the 400' altitude, according to the AMA, only...

    So, how does he anticipate regulating it? Looks to me like he would have to nullify Section 336 first.

    It's the same with model airplanes, too. It's the same with all RC equipment. There is no attachment between the bot and its operator, whether it be by land, air, or water.
