RCKen, you are right, the AMA has made another bad call. When the AMA embraced multi-rotors with autonomous navigation and FPV capability, they added UAS capability to model aircraft. When the FAA...

I never met Adrian, but I can say he is a stand-up guy who knows how to design unusual aircraft that fly very well. Here are the "bones" of my 1/5 scale GB R2 just before I covered it.
