Did the AMA screw up? Oh, yeah they did. Did the AMA make...

Hydro,

Your equipment will be obsoleted without a FRIA period. The way the FAA has worded things there is no way to fly it legally with either Limited or Standard RID. And it seems to me that the...

At this point, until the FAA posts it's Final Rule, there's nothing on that front to discuss.

I will say this; unless the FAA adds a reasonable RID solution for 'legacy' model aircraft, I'll be...

No doubt that AMA seriously screwed the pooch on that one, although I am on record as being of a differing opinion as to why the did something so risky.

And I'd also submit that it was the FAA...

Excuse me, but I NEVER condoned operating a MODEL AIRCRAFT at 260kts. I believe you are confusing that with min safe speed in a Boeing 767....:confused:

As the law/regulation is currently written, yes, exceeding 400' AGL, in uncontrolled (class G) airspace, would be a violation of applicable FAR/CFR's.

Unless prior arrangements with the local FAA...

Echo,

If those drone owners who registered were NOT members of the AMA, what power would AMA have to enforce ANY rules on them?

Just because the AMA Safety Code was the de facto rules the FAA...

That is correct. As per 91.117(a). Which does allow one to exceed 250kts below 10,000’, if the min safe speed (Vfto) is greater than 250kts. And you don’t have to notify the Administrator or ATC....

A question: Can a full-size aircraft exceed 250kts below 10,000’ legally (outside of an emergency)?

1 major flaw in the reasoning: this study utilized DJI Aeroscope data, which is only applicable to DJI products. It is not retrofitable to legacy-type aircraft. So this data only applies to ‘drone’...

NOWHERE did Barracuda say that. 91.13 has NOTHING to do with NOTAMS or TFRs.

What that drone pilot did was irresponsible, reckless and certainly a violation of 91.13.

And RID would have...

All of which is true. No argument.

But please tell me again how RID would have:

- prevented this, since there was no TFR in place, only a NOTAM

I would think that it's actually not AMA's call, but rather their insurance carrier, regarding allowing two different CBO's to operate on the same site, at the same time.

First off, it does matter. Points of view change over time.

Second, after reading here on RCU the history of said lawsuit (from Mr. Red Shoenfield), it looks like SFA sued AMA first, and lost...

Uh, yeah. The policy carve-out you've been fighting (along with anything else pro-hobby?). The FRIA's that, as Speed says, are destined to phase out? Tied to the health of the organization you try...
