The AMA also filed a suit.

So

The restrictions coming down from the FAA would cripple the hobby.

So
Congress authorized the FAA to uphold the law,
AMA is for 'safety-guidelines' only

If it doesn't affect hobby/recreation than why did AMA file a lawsuit against the FAA?

any correlation?

The Mission. The DPA's mission is to be a single entity that represents the interests of all small commercial and non-hobbyist drone pilots.

You keep saying that that the new FAA rule would not affect the hobby/recreation users and yet the AMA has now filed it's very own seperate lawsuit fighting the new FAA rules because they DO affect the hobby/recreation users.

Now you are referencing the DPA.. I don't get it.

Your argument that it would not bother the hobby community is false.

none of these are hobby related. PL112-95/336 is strictly for amateurs. so why the professionals bother with the law suit?
the new FAA rule would not affect the hobby/recreation users
the interpretation shall not affect r/c players if hobby/recreation users play by the rules according to PL112-95/336 & AMA safety-code for VLOS

So then why has AMA filed a lawsuit against the FAA?

Obviously they feel threatened by the new rules.

"Although AMA has worked cooperatively with the FAA in the past, and hopes to continue to do so, the AMA has filed its petition for review within 60 days of the issuance of the FAA interpretation, by necessity, in order to assert its legal rights."

Exactly, because these rules WOULD affect the AMA members.

fwiw...

Remember Humpty Dumpty.......?....The govt. deliberately writes laws and regulations and statutes in as convoluted fashion as possible...This allows them to apply them to any situation, So ALL the hobby will be adversely affected...
Bob Brown wrote a nice editorial in latest MA, but makes what I consider the same misassumption so many do....Many, if not most of the people involved in the RC hobby do not know about FAA regs...Only those of us deeply involved join the AMA, read about regulations, etc. I do not expect this to change, but only worsen....On a recent trip to RC Depot I learned that they are selling Phantoms faster than they can get them......How many of these new"drone" pilots will care enough to look at any regulations?

I hope the AMA is prepared to spend whatever it takes to fight these new and unworkable regulations...Our survival depends on it.

John.

guys, maybe I missed it at some point in here.

But I live approx 3 1/2 miles from an airforce base. We usually fly our helicopters and small park flyer size airplanes at this very nice field.

I dont fly drones or quad copters at all. So is this enforced for ALL model aircraft? Including our 2 bladed helis?

Sorry if I missed something. Otherwise if so, this sucks! AZ has mostly dirt and thats not good on the nitros; I like grass for crashing

that's what the law is exactly for; if you get caught then pay the fine

OUCH! I wonder what kind of fine they are looking at.
I plan to get my Commercial and ATP license for full scale shortly, but dont need the FAA breathing down my neck as it is. It took them almost a year and a half to clear my class 1 medical certificate. Glad its over now.

But this is some crap I must say! They try to regulate every darn thing that flys. I wonder what happens to local events and flying clubs every day and every time there is an event.
