10 hours in a lancair that's a lot of real estate covered. Even flying a slow one that gets you someplace pretty fast. The glasair would do 200mph on the right day at 8gph. Id alsways plan on 180 at +7k to avoid slower traffic.
Going into burlingtin vt I've even been asked to slow down so not to overtake commercial passenger jets. Days like that makes you smile.

So when you sell an aircraft you need to fill out FAA registration forms. Do we need to do this to sell our toys now???

The pilot is registered... not any aircraft.

Can anyone define Freedom, and or Liberty?? The two most favorite words, the US gov., loves to use. In addition, where can one find it?

Freedom a word often used to make you feel special in the United States. Liberty a word used in conjunction with freedom to make you think you have rights. You can find it someplace other than the United States.

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
membership is not mandatory
hear the no starting at 56:45

The link below is something you really should look at. It explains why the FAA cannot inforce their special rules.
This is the AMA's current position on flying FPV.

http://amablog.modelaircraft.org/am...nue-flying-fpv/

The argument boils down to deffinition of Line-of-sight. There is no need to argue. The DC Court of Appeals has put the AMA lawsuit in Abeyance pending FAA response to 33,000 comments. The FAA is not enforcing until the lawsuit is resolved unless there is reckless behaviour.

The FAA, as usual, thinks that they can do whatever they want. They lost that position with Taylor winning against the FAA for sect. 336.
https://dronelife.com/2017/03/20/ta...oral-arguments/

And now there's a suit to get everybody's money back,
https://jrupprechtlaw.com/taylor-v-...-action-lawsuit

Also, Congress, when enacting 336, specifically did NOT require membership in the AMA, only compliance with their rules and guide lines. Government can not show favoritism for a private organization.

The FAA is under the gun to integrate UAS into the NAS. They are rushing to get it done and failing to follow public law. They have to allow time for public comment. I did not know that Robert Taylor was the litigant in the suit for return of the money. Pretty sure John is handling the legal end. Who knows, he might win return of the money. He sure will be a hero in the RC community if he gets each of us $1,000.

Regardless, Congress has passed and the president has signed a law going forward to register sUAS(0.55-55lbs). After Dec 12, 2017, you must register yourself to fly any sUAS weighing more than 0.55lbs. That will be hard to litigate. Don't B at me, I am just telling you the law without a personal opinion.

This is the AMA's current position on flying FPV.
inconsistent, the r/c operator has no within VLOS when wearing the FPV googles

“SEE AND AVOID” GUIDANCE
9. Visual Line of Sight is required by the AMA Safety Guidelines. It means that visual contact with the aircraft must be maintained without enhancement other than by corrective lenses prescribed for the model aircraft pilot. All RC flying must remain clear of clouds smoke or any other obstruction to the line of sight.
~
Unmanned Aircraft Operation Utilizing First-Person View
d) All FPV flights require an AMA FPV pilot to have an AMA FPV spotter next to him or her maintaining VLOS with the FPV sUAS throughout its flight.

I just carry the mail, I don't write it. Please comment to the AMA if you want further action. I have no opinion on the issue. You may want to review AMA Documents; 550, 560, 580 and 590. All the best.

The Part 107 (commercial drone) license allows the pilot to fly with FPV Goggles together with a required spotter. It costs $150 plus passing a written test to get a 107 license.

Not to worry, in November the Dumocraps will succeed in becoming relevant, and then it will be all over. More Scuslims,more trash from the south, and no 2nd amendment, or 1st amendment. Four years later, and you will not be able to recognize the USA.

I am interested in anything FAA related that discusses FPV.
Part 107 is your friend (if you wish to fly FPV BLOS).
Still can't fly beyond line of sight, must have spotter and stay within line of sight of a "flight crew member" (spotter). Visual aids, such as binoculars, may be used only momentarily for situational awareness.

If you have a private license and you're current you can complete an online course that I'm told is trivial.
I wan't current so i bought a $20 book, studied an hour or so an evening for a couple weeks, and took the real test. Only missed one ? on my private written, and only studied over a weekend before taking it. Missed several more than one ? on the 107 test , found it more difficult. Maybe it's because I was in my early 20's when i did the private, now I'm an old fart at 50 and the mind doesn't work as well
