Did I read it wrong, or did the NEW AMA FPV documents say pretty much what the OLD AMA FPV documents said?

The difference I see is no need for a buddy box, but a spotter is still required, and must take the radio if needed. I was under the impression they were removing the requirement for a spotter completely, thus the ban at marymoore.

Anyhow, the FPV issue was discussed at the board several times before the ban, so I believe it is only the membership themselves responsible for the ban. If you do not solicit a board member on the subject they are not going to represent you, no matter who they are.
I strongly support the mob and its attempt to make marymoore more 3D friendly (and more friendly in general), but I doubt if the FPV issue will sway any voters.

Good luck..
