RE: What would you do

Actually, they never had it in a newsletter that this fail-safe mandatory rule was even going to be presented at the meeting. 6 members at the meeting out of 35 total members is not a very fair vote...

RE: What would you do? Please read.....

The way They put it is, If your plane goes out of control at least it won't be at full throttle! I'm sure my little 5 lb plane would do a lot less damage than their 37% to 40%er's would but it's ok...

RE: What would you do? Please read.....

Actually, I'll be saving all that money I'd be spending on fail-safes and also $58 for AMA and another $50 for club dues. I have a large field just 3 blocks away from me that I can fly anytime I want...

I'm just going to find me another place to fly rather than spend all that extra money I'd have to spend to update all my planes!

RE: What would you do? Please read.....

RE: What would you do? Please read.....

They don't like it when smaller...

No one in the club has had their batteries go dead in mid-air and there have never been any fly-a-ways! Any crashes were usually pilot error.
