I'm betting this will have to change again when the FAA/ARC finalizes the new regulations.

" change "AMA Experimental Aircraft program" to "Large Model Aircraft program".
"increase Large Model Aircraft program (formerly Experimental Aircraft program) maximum weight from 55.1 lbs.-100 lbs. to 55.1 lbs. -125 lbs. for propeller-driven aircraft, and, 55.1 lbs. to 100 lbs. for turbine-powered aircraft."

It looks like Mr Rice is moving things in a positive direction. I hope this movement continues and will counter the stagnation that has become the norm.

A couple of my pet peeves were hit in that meeting-
Metal Blades and 'Experimental' waiver

I mean,
if you use conventional techniques with conventional materials to build a conventional design,
if it comes out 54lb its a standard craft, but if you come out at 56 its an Experimental craft.
But a No-Wings lifing body with thrust vectoring by cam'ed torque reaction... well, its a 2lb .15 craft so that aint experimental

And I think we all know how I feel about any activity to correct the
Blades will be of no metal, no how - no where, never ever
overreaching rule.

Cant wait to see that PDF,
and see what precedents we can use to set proper requirements for other applications of metal.
Dunno know yet, havent see the Metal pdf yet
