Hound dog- my club had a similar increase 5 years ago, $65 to $100 a year. It was to pay for relocation costs and higher maintenance costs. We lost some members because of it, but within 2 years our...

If the AMA leadership lets the majority rule on this, they will throw FPV and autonomous pilots under the bus. And if they do, aeromodeling will suffer in the long run. The FAA will pass regulations,...

Oh please. I spend more than that on fuel. Nobody chooses this hobby because it's cheap, and nobody chooses not to do it because it's expensive. Many, especially those who complain, don't realize...

Porcia83- Those numbers are simply not realistic. When a non profit skimps on salaries, they wind up with incompetent people. We pay AMA employees to work to advance the hobby, and that's what they...

60-70% going toward salaries sounds about right for a mid size non-profit. You'd be surprised at how much of any charitable donation you make goes to paying the people who work for that organization....

When you figure in inflation, the dues aren't going up at all. The numbers are simply changing to keep up with the dropping value of the dollar. Our dues have actually been going down every year...
