How much does a life time membership cost?

Rv7garage 08-06-2015 05:24 PM

$1500

...or viewed another way, about as much as a good-quality kit with all the electronics and motor. :)

I've actually thought about it for several years, but now they allow you to make 4 payments of $375.00 ... that made it an easy decision.

After careful consideration I jumped in and got the L in front of my AMA number today.......:o

At the same time I enrolled my new, 6 week old, granddaughter in as a Junior Member......she joins her 3 year old cousin, my grandson, who I also enrolled as a Junior member last year.

I hope I'm around long enough to get them both interested in the hobby.....them flying long after I'm gone would be a great way to give back to the hobby.

Could happen to the AMA. At this point I'm not sure they actually know what they are doing or where we are going as a organization.

Sure, and the sky could fall on us tomorrow too, after all it seems like that's right around the corner, right after the failure of the AMA . LOL...too funny. Been around since '36...growing ..., but sure, they don't know what they are doing. Because there are loads of other people out there who know exactly what to do. Right. The AMA ain't goin anywhere, and the ship has sailed on excluding or what some wanted of course, a BAN on quads.

I know it's easier to lament what has passed and find the bad in everything, but it's wasted energy at this point. Make the best of it, and the hobby.

^ hahahahaha! That's nice work :D Just don't microwave it... ��

or chew on it....ouch! :p

Sorry, $1,500 is too steep of a ride for me... 20years to payoff? Of course sooner when the rates go up. I would rather pay year by year because you never know. I have seen a lot of businesses come and go.

Rv7garage 08-24-2015 06:03 PM

Well it's not really something I did for ROI, I was really just laughing at myself. But I hope for at least another 30 years of flying, and now I don't have to ever think about renewing- it's bought and paid for. I have more than that plowed into any one of my actual models, and let's not even discuss guitars, tube amps, a 2015 H-D Street Glide, etc. It's nice to have a budget, lol ;)
