Tomorrow, the 22g FPV stuff will carry great cams. Today, they are useful as is, in small spaces. Indoors. Around people. For inspection, monitoring, whatever. Something as simple as letting a cop peer around a corner, over a wall, etc., without endangering his life. These could be useful today. Anyone can fly them.

Showing how important it is to get the stupid out of the FAA ASAP.

You really dont understand the importance of makeing rules and regulations do you


From zero weight to supposedly 55 pounds is what is important

Now 55 pounds is heavy imho

But faa have to start at zero pounds

And you are so wrong not to think that

I will try to help you understand


Remember tim this is a hobby thread

From zero to 55 pounds is all the same

Its that simple

Manufactures that are flooding the market bare responsibility to warn users of the legality of where they operator.

When i got into RC nearly 30yrs ago it was very clear. From the point of sale at the hobby shop to bold warnings in the manuals...it all pointed to the AMA and using club fields and seeking out instruction from an experienced AMA member.

None of this info is provided with the typical multirotor today. The typical warning in most manuals is CYA. Warning shArp objects, small parts, dont put it in your mouth and lipo can catch fire. Ive only seen 2 manuals so far for a rtf quad that barely make any mention of responsible flying guidelines.

We know not to do this but it's the LHS selling to the non-hobbyist plank's because they just want the cash. And it's these non-hobbyist plank's that are doing 90% of the stupid s**t. Hope this guy gets done for stupid.

AMA has concerns about FAA's recreational laws. Here's a bit from an email the AMA sent out yesterday ...

Quote:
The NPRM references FAA's June 2014 interpretation of the Special Rule. As indicated in detail in updates to our members last summer , the AMA has taken exception to several aspects of FAA's interpretation. The main areas of concern are that the FAA's interpretation:

Asserts model aircraft to be "aircraft" and effectively makes model airplanes subject to all regulations applicable to full-scale aircraft.
Makes model aircraft subject to airspace requirements that have never been applicable in the past and with which it is impossible or impractical to comply.
Effectively changes the criteria for operating within 5 miles of an airport from the requirement of providing prior "notification" to a requirement of obtaining prior permission.
Narrowly defines "hobby and recreation" and puts in question the activities of the supporting aeromodeling industry and AMA's educational programs.
Rigidly defines the requirement to operate within visual line of sight and targets the use of a specific aeromodeling technology/equipment, namely first-person view (FPV) goggles.

Love that boiler plate letter and that ama fight for a spotter

I still think the best defence is constipating the FAA with false complaints in worse case senerio

What shocked me was the costs

Its kind of mixed up to charge $3500 us dollars to fly as we have for hobby

Imagine i got back pay for my hobby experience
