I took out my left side mirror and put two blade length dents in the door with a 450 t rex.
Try to explain that to your wife, Duh!!

Just a reminder these things are not toys.

Thanks for sharing and good advice with insurance stuff. I will talk to my agent about my helis. Some fun flies have so many people and things to hit that your point struck home with me. It only takes a millisecond...

High Voltage just works better

The start of repair estimate went to $9100 plus rental car for my buddy and will take 4 weeks (the accident happened one week ago today).

The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

This is why we have AMA, it would have covered all the damage just fine. There is a $250 deductible but other wise it would have covered all the damage to the SUV. No need to freak about insurance coverage you already have it.

I believe the AMA insurance will only apply if you are flying at an AMA sanctioned flying club/field/event.

Does AMA insurance really cover something like that?

As a general statement yes, but just like any other insurance, if you were doing something stupid, not following safety code, etc, where you are totally at fault, it may be a different thing. But in most cases AMA would cover

This is 100% WRONG

Your AMA insurance covers you ANYPLACE you fly as long as you have NOT been told not to fly there. An example of where the AMA will not cover you is say a park that has been POSTED no RC aircraft. While rare there are some places that have been posted no RC Aircraft. However for the most part you are covered just about any place you could fly.

Yes it does, that's why it's there. I have seen to claims where RC aircraft have damaged cars and the AMA insurance paid for the damage minus the $250.00 deductible.

Thanks Rudy2 and Rocket - I was told by a club officer a long time ago that this was fact and I never looked into it until now. You are correct - AMA insurance does not have any exclusions on location of incident.
However, there are several exclusions specified that I did not know about until I actually read the policy!
Thanks again.

btw: policy located here: http://www.modelaircraft.org/files/500-l.pdf
