Info on the Proposed FAA Regulations:
AMA has again asked members to comment om the proposed changes to the regulations. Instuctions on how to comment can be found here:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------AMA has published their policies on UAS in this months 'Model Aviation April 2014 Volume 40' issue on page 15.

  The AMA's policy states:            "The use of imaging technology for aerial surveillance with radio control model aicraft having the capability of obtaining high-resolution photographs and/or video, or using any types of sencors for the collection, retention, or dissemination of surveillance data information on individuals, homes, businesses, or property at locations where there is a reasonable expectation of privacy, is strictly prohibited by the AMA unless written expressed permission is obtained from the individual property owners or managers."

 I strongly suggest every club member read this article, and members who already own, or are thinking of purchasing quad copters with a camera, I would suggest using it at the club field only. This policy can jepardize your AMA membership in the case of a neighborly complaint...

The aeromodeling community is urged to remain vigilant and regularly check for updates.
