Why you want to fly !
I guess if you want to fly as a hobby then you're exempt !

If you want to make a dollar or out to misbehave then you have to follow the rules.

Sounds good to me

spending time, paying attention

Interesting. So if I operate under AMA rules (Section 336 - line of sight, recreational purposes), then I do not need to register my aircraft?

According to the FAQ on the AMA site one must register with the FAA and be a member of the AMA because both numbers are required. Did I read that right?

zonker,
Only if you are an AMA member do you have to show both the fed. number and the AMA number. If you are not a AMA member you don't have an AMA number.

I certainly understand why the anger towards the faa and ama.
Times are changing towards controlling the population. This is merely a feeble attempt to curb nuisance RC operations from interfering with the commercial drones. Which can only be done if there are laws in place.

Let's all give a big thank you to the new mult-billion dollar owner of freedom.
AMAZON.

"Programming"
the 5bucks/3years ID beats the 'programming' membership fee

What I read is that in order to fly as a "hobbyist", you must be a member of AMA as per;

Public Law 112-95 section 336
the aircraft is operated in accordance with a community-based set of safety guidelines and within the programming of a nationwide community-based organization

Even if flying as a hobbyist, you must register anything over .55lbs. Absurd.

I view flying at a "club" as a means to share with others the same interest but mainly the exclusivity of a reserved field only for such, which requires AMA "secondary" insurance.

EDITED
Found my answer...sadly.
