I understand all that. I was specifically asking about the reward program.

Only those that fly and I doubt many do. Most are clerks.

Now for the $27,000 question I have a canadian student flying his apprentice he bought in the USA last week, and he is flying under the AMA INTRO PILOT program. He is flying with out a buddy box at present. I just flip the mode switch back into BEginner if he panics or get's too fare out of shape.

Is there any responsibility to have some sort of FAA number on /in the apprentice. what if We Use a Buddy Box? Now come on all U FAA/AMA/ registeratiom GOROOS must have some answer and why U think U are correct.

From the front page of RCU......

http://www.usfpvleague.com/

An estimated 16,000 people will attend and watch these races. Yup...that sure is a group of people the AMA should have shunned!

Wonder how many other "traditional" RC events have to be added together to get those kind of numbers......???

Oh my god-Let's play real pilot!!!! Do you wear a David Clark Headset as well when you fly your RC toy or wear a white crew shirt with crew epaulettes?

It's not about the numbers. Bigger does not equal better. 😀

That was the first step...

They are now working with DHS on detection equipment that can locate the drone operator regardless of being registered or not.

http://www.aerospace-technology.com/...rports-4816450

http://www.suasnews.com/2016/02/faa-...etection-work/

The drone detection process includes CACI's proof-of-concept system, which uses radio frequency sensors at strategic locations around an airport. When sensors detect frequencies, it triangulates the signals and identifies the location of the UAS and its operator.

"SkyTracker successfully identified, detected and tracked UAS in flight, and precisely located drone ground operators, all without interfering with airport ground operations. "

Plenty of other systems in development also.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tG2PDppAK78 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8aZ0zWX3SA
What about the autonomous drones flown to specific way points and altitudes from an IPhone or tablet? No 2.4 Ghz signal is ever generated or broad cast ... they won't/don't know where the Drone Pilot is With in a 3 mile radius circle . Only Received GPS signals PERIOD. Nothing broadcast from the drone at all. May be I could get that tuned up good enough for Pylon or quickie 500 racing. Now there's an idea. Another line of thought since it is autonomous and U Are not flying it is it subject to the Line of Sight thing. U may be able to set up a course on the phone and start it flying from the other side of the world with a cell phone and the Internet. I think I saw an ad just for that some where. Had a camera too.

OH Crap it's way past my NP time Nighty Night all.

Hey Jim, any update on that CBO/insurance thing that I think you references in one of these threads? Going national yet?

Kinda like the "millions " of drones flying around? 16,000 is really a stretch maybe even a over the top guess, but I guess we'll see.

Just make it mandatory to have Insurance from a CBO and fly only on registered R/C Flying sites.
I'll bet someone could get a groupe rate thru Lloyd's Of London Like the have in Australia $20 Million in PRIMARY insurance. Better n what's we's been getten froms the Only CBO round Namely the AMA.

Wait..weren't you one of those folks going on and on about the millions of "drones" out there? I don't doubt that over a million have been sold do you? As for the other number, it figures you would downplay that one, but for an event of that size, over 2 days, it doesn't seem outrageous. How many people do you think go through NALL over two days? Or any large scale international event? Keep in mind they don't specify pilot versus spectator.

I hope you don't have much riding on the bet Doggy......you would lose it all. There is no better deal out there.....and what we get is clearly sufficient and more importantly cost effective.

If there was a better deal out there...don't you think we'd know about it. Or at least get invited to know about it...

No wrong I was the one commenting on how disappointed I was that there were NOT millions flying around. I wager that they get nowhere 16,000 in attendance unless the spotters are 1/2 naked Victoria Secret models serving wings and beer to the spectators..

Do I have to register my UAS immediately? Is there a grace period?

A. All small unmanned aircraft that meet the registration criteria must be registered prior to operation outdoors. If you operated your small unmanned aircraft UAS before Dec. 21, 2015, the FAA provided a grace period during which you were permitted to continue operations without registering the aircraft. However, beginning February 19, 2016, all small unmanned aircraft owners must register their aircraft if they wish to continue to operate outdoors.
I flew my planes on Sunday and still have not registered with the FAA.
It felt great.

So, if I crash a plane, will the NTSB have to investigate the cause of the crash?
Hahahaha

Maybe we should report all crashes to the FAA and the NTSB!
Hell, they want to regulate us? Then let them "enjoy" the full responsibility of monitoring our hobby!

Next, I'll operate my tanks and R/C cars on the highways and roads, and create all sorts of problems! After a few years of that, maybe the government will regulate those toys too! Maybe even force every r/c buggy operator to register their r/c cars and tanks with the DMV

This world is becoming incredibly stupid!

A week or two I spoke with a couple of R/C Jet flyers from Australia and We got talking about the differences between R/C in Australia. They stated that for $100/year (Australian) about $75 US they get $20 Million of Primary Insurance thru Lloyd's of London.
What say U Rob2160:

Well...funny you mention that part about reporting. Someone here...one being the operative word would like to create a scheme/program where we capture those accidents and crashes at the field. Somehow this would lead to safer flying...? But ya, let's create a new reporting structure where we capture accidents and mishaps at the field and memorialize that for.....um...safety sake?

It's a mad mad mad mad mad world.
