Yeah well when that "nonprofit" becomes MANDATORY to fly at most fields in the nation...and lobbies for people who never fly at those fields, we have a problem.

If you don't see an issue with this, you truly are blind.

Gotta agree. Not a big fan of AMA at the moment. They could have easily targeted the technology to address this issue. There was zero precedent to require the mandatory registration of virtually ALL r/c aircraft. The GPS assisted, waypoint setting, non LOS aircraft, non-hobby invested end user are the sole reason this requirement came to fruition.

I may.

All AMA has accomplished recently is allowing me to be lumped into the cesspool that was created by irresponsible non-AMA members.

Seriously,,,,, Now is the time for us to make it known that we are being discriminated against. This issue could have be avoided if the powers to be, would require any manufacturer/importer to have each flight controller that enables waypoint flying to have a FAA/ FCC registration number, very similar to a MAC address for every IP device on the internet. Once this device is sold to the dist...then retailer this number follows thru right to the person purchasing the device which has a flight controller in it. Keep in mind if I choose to put this in an R/C car and make it fly now the flight controller can be tracked. This all total nonsense against us law abiding flyers. I sure hope that they make it mandatory to register R/C CARS, Model rockets, Kites, Stealth Birds (Disguised RC aircraft) and yes you can make an rc car fly with a flight controller.

Im sorry I just had to Rant !!!!!!!!!!!!!

just got this from AMA

AMA and the FAA Registration Process

Today the FAA announced plans for a model aircraft registration process to begin next week. AMA was a member of the task force that helped develop recommendations for this registration rule and argued throughout the process that registration makes sense at some level but only for those operating outside the guidance of a community-based organization or flying for commercial purposes.

Unfortunately, the new FAA registration rule does not include our advice. The rule is counter to Congress's intent in the Special Rule for Model Aircraft and makes the registration process an unnecessary burden for all of our members who have been operating safely for decades.

While we are disappointed with the new registration rule and still maintain that AMA members should be exempt from registration, the rule is being implemented over AMA objections. Therefore, we want to provide you with important information about the registration rule and how AMA members can comply with the new federal requirements:

• All aircraft that are flown using a ground control system, such as a transmitter, are required to participate. This includes fixed-wing aircraft, not just multirotors or drones.
•Any pilot flying models weighing between .55 pounds (or 250 grams) and 55 lbs is required to register.
•You will not be required to register every aircraft individually. You only need to register yourself and can affix one registration number to all your aircraft.
• You must mark all aircraft with your registration number. The number can be inside the aircraft, such as a battery hatch - but should not require tools to access.
•The FAA plans to launch the online registration website on Monday, December 21.
•There is a $5 fee to register, which is waived if you register within the first 30 days.
•You only need to register once every 3 years.

We are still working out the logistics for this process. Some details are still being discussed, including:

•We are seriously discussing with the FAA a system where your AMA number could be used as your federal registration number as well. At this point, this is only a proposal and details are not yet finalized.
• At this time, AMA members will not automatically be registered when the registration website launches next week. However, we are in conversations with the FAA about the best way to streamline the registration process for AMA members going forward.

This is an ongoing process and we will continue to provide updates on the registration rule. Stay tuned to modelaircraft.org/gov, social media and your email for the latest news on the registration process.

Thank you,

AMA Government Relations and Advocacy Team

worth it
Individuals intending to use the small unmanned aircraft exclusively as model aircraft.
• $5 to register an individual’s fleet of small unmanned aircraft.

I don't fly legally now, So why would I or should I start now

I won't Pay for useless coverage from MAAC nor do I fly at clubs, Instead I fly with friends at soccer fields or other undisclosed locations.

The FAA can't enforce it outside of known locations (clubs) and will cost $$$$$$$ if they do try to enforce it nation wide.

They are fear mongering the hobbyist who aren't the problem in order to make them pay for the ones who cause the incidents.

NOBODY should register in protest.
if you start now in a few years we will all pay dearly.

spending time, paying attention

The FAA is an unelected, irrepresentative body making legislation against the will of the only truly legal legislative body - congress. There is no legality to this. All laws are supposed to originate in representative bodies. The representative body says Sec 336. The weasel lawyers in the FAA interpreted their way around that. What they are doing is illegal.
