Has the ama paid out claims?
Yes they have and some big ones also.
If they had never paid any claims, they could still get the coverage underwritten like they used to. Cost for AMA to get member coverage underwritten by insurance company went so high several years ago that they had to go self insured best I remember.

Lots of times that secondary coverage can become primary, if the party does not have homeowners or if the homeowners can wiggle out of coverage due to some clause about aircraft accidents not covered.
Also you get from AMA for yourself, limited personal injury coverage for model aviation related injury and coverage for your models/supplies if lost due to thieft or fire.

Some of this could have changed, I am typeing from memory.
If someone is interested in exact current AMA coverage, check the coverage description available at modelaircraft.org or probably in the membership material sent to new and renewing members.
Before it goes into file 13, check in AMA's Model Aviation mag, might be some information in it or information as to where it can be found.

My biggest complaint with the AMA is, why is it I have to pay the same amount for dues when I own two homes with homeowner ins, as a guy who rents a room and owns a 300.00 car. And yet he has the same accident as I do, AMA will have to pay right up front from the get go.

Maybe the wealthy fellow will have more models and fly more and stand chance of crashing more.

Smells like a tax break for the wealthy.
You rich guys ought not be kicking about the measly little AMA membership dues.
