Yeah, I wonder if AMA leadership will regroup and fundamentally rethink their strategy from this point forward. It's tough to look at the report card for the $1,000,000 spent thus far:

Exempt model aircraft from registration - not adopted
Allow use of AMA number in lieu of registration number - not adopted
FAA doesn't have the authority to do this under 336 - not adopted
Letter writing campaign and their three recommended policy points - not successful x 3
Be recognized by FAA as CBO - as of yet unsuccessful (and I suspect unlikely given that AMA is suing FAA)

There's probably more, but those come to mind.
