That's seems about right based on the type of technology likely to be needed. I saw a post a while back (I can't remember where), where someone identified a bunch of off the shelf components that...

Why do you say that? You get a broadcast module, stick it on your plane and fly like you did before (that is unless what you did before is fly BVLOS).

OK, we don't know exactly what the size,...

I tend to agree. Again, not saying the AMA handled everything perfectly, but we could have ended up in a much worse place. I still know of no other organization capable and willing to advocate for...

When has that not been the case? We have always been and always will be subject to change in the regulatory landscape. If the true goal of the FAA is "phase us out over time" then it will happen no...

I am not sure what exchange you are referring to, but I can promise you that it was not me who went to the moderators. In 10 years of posting, I have only done that once when it was a very personal...

As the a non-profit, the AMA has no incentive to earn money. If thy succeed or if they fail, the leadership gets paid the same and their positions are relatively secure. I don't know the financial...

That's understood, but at their core, they are running a business, and that mindset carries over to the FliteTest Community. My understanding is that they only formed FliteTest Community so that they...

I have been impressed with the FliteTest guys for quite some time now. There is one big difference between them and the AMA though; At its core, FliteTest is a for profit business, and that motivates...

I suspect the problem is that they didn't spend enough on their team! Social media experts are in very high demand and the good ones are expensive (VERY expensive). But even more of a problem is the...

If they are serious about it, then they need to make the AMA look a lot more like FliteTest and draw in a younger crowd that has a completely different outlook about the hobby. But as I have said...

As Echo says, it appears as though what RaceDayQuads and the drone community at large really are fighting for is recreational BVLOS/FPV. But even if by some strange miracle they succeed in having RID...
