Just wrote up a thank you letter and submitted for my AMA membership.

Nice letter (excluding the spelling)

Here's a snippet of the meeting minutes

http://www.modelaircraft.org/members...ecminutes.aspx


Quote:
• FPV – The committee received a document re an amateur model FPV flying safety code; the document was compiled from discussions on RC Universe. Currently Item 10 in the Safety Code does not allow for FPV operation at a chartered club field, by an AMA member. The Safety Committee (with input from R. Hanson) established guidelines for FPV operations and recommends modifying the Safety Code to allow FPV operation. The President feels this would be an opportunity for AMA to work with people, possibly do some testing, using FPV under restricted terms. Following discussion document item 1. now reads “An FPV equipped model must be flown by two AMA members utilizing a buddy box system. The pilot in command must be on the primary transmitter, maintain visual contact and be prepared to assume control in the event of a problem.” Item 2. was amended to read “The operational range of the model is limited to the pilot in commands visual line of sight as defined in the Official AMA Safety Code (see RC item 10).

MOTION X: Moved by J. Rice (VIII) and seconded by B. Brown (III) to approve the document titled FIRST PERSON VIEW (FPV) OPERATIONS – AMA MEMBERS AND AMA CHARTERED CLUB SITES as amended; and add it to the Supplemental section of the Safety Code and the PDF file listing.
MOTION passed unanimously (Dist. VII VP out of room for vote)
