Yes, and depending on what you are doing, some of it crosses over into the FAA's definition of being a UAV, and not just a R/C model anymore, so then you have to deal with their regs also.

I'm also pretty sure that moves you away from "hobby or recreational use" and you probably arent' covered by the AMA

You could go into the RC flight instruction business and possibly make $1800-2400 per week. One guy has been doing just that for many years now: http://www.frontiernet.net/~rcfs/Enroll%2006.htm
