Hi everyone, it's been a heck of a winter and I know everyone is anxious to get out to the field and fly. A couple of interesting items came up this winter that I would like to share with the club.
The most important is that the executives for the club were asked to update our current Park Rules to reflect park flyers, Quad copters and FPV (First Person View) drones and how the park should deal with this new technology. The Executive board has finished the update and it is now being submitted to the Park for final approval. If everything goes well we should have them in place by the end of April.
Second as an AVP for the AMA, I want to reflect on the new rules that are being implemented by the FAA regarding FPV and Drones. Right now the FAA is honoring the decision of the Congress to separate R/C line of sight from FPV, Drones and Quads. That is not to say that the FAA won't try to enforce the new rules on R/C aircraft so be ready for the fight. For more information you can visit the AMA web site by clicking here.
I hope everyone is ready for our April Model Expo, a chance to show off all that hard work you did on your new model for this season. As you know we will have two categories, ARF and Kit/Scratch-built. Each category will have a first and second place winner so don't be shy, bring out your new project to the April Club Meeting.
Well that's it for now see ya at the March meeting.
"Keep em Flyin"
