More appropriately, the hobby "management" is killing the hobby. Right after people started flying beyond line of sight and doing ridiculous stuff like flying around tall buildings in downtown USA the AMA sat quietly not saying a word. The AMA used to have a lot of pull in this industry, as well as Congress, and could have put a damper on the surge of this nonsense but didn't. Now the AMA is at the mercy of an angry Congress whose voters are furious with noise and harassment in city parks and spying on young girls sunbathing in their backyards. And the industry doesn't give a d__n about the AMA because they are only interested in profits.
