NEW RULES

So the FAA is working on the new rules for flying recreational sUAS. Note that model aviation longer exists. There is no such thing as hobby RC in the eyes of Congress. Just "Recreational sUAS."

So this was on the AMA site:

http://amablog.modelaircraft.org/ama...s-regulations/

Interesting to note who was part of the first meeting:

Quote:
In addition to AMA and CTA, the following groups were in attendance:
The Toy Association
the University of California
Fresh Air Educators
Flite Test
MultiGP
UASidekick
the Drone User Group (DUG)
the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI)
Horizon Hobby
the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA)
Civil Air Patrol (CAP)
the Alliance for Drone Innovation (ADI)
the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals (OBAP).

I think from the info EAA has sent out they realize that model aviation and there interest are similar so hopefully we have some friends/help there that might have common interest

Fresh Air Educators?

Must be another Al Gore invention. My guess is they are not kind to farmers that raise cattle, sheep, horses, etc

My RC planes are fresh air planes. They are not happy with stale air.

I really hope they will try to differentiate LOS model aviation from BLOS flying camera platforms. Also hope they push the 400 ft issue.

I was just thinking that now since the FAA is making completely new rules, it would make sense.

Who is "Josh at Flite Test" and how is he an effective representative for giant scale planes?

The law as written by Congress makes no such distinction. There is no such thing as hobby flying or model aviation. We are now all one big lump of "Recreational sUAS".

So don't you think since now that "the FAA is working on the new rules for flying recreational sUAS" it would be a good time to negotiate an exception? Of course that would rely on the AMA pulling their heads out and recognizing the issue.

But the FAA has the authority to make that distinction correct. The question is, will they.

AMA won't make that distinction. They set the sails on including FPV in the membership to include R/C quads (i.e. drones in the eye of the Gov't).
