Senate passes bill requiring the flying of RC model aircraft to require AMA membership. If the House of Representatives passes it you will have to send a check to Muncie every year or not fly anything outdoors.
Contact your US Representative now.

"(g) Special Rule for Model Aircraft.--

(B) operated in accordance with a community-based set of safety guidelines and within the programming of a nationwide community-based organization; and

(C) limited to not more than 55 pounds unless otherwise certified through a design, construction, inspection,

flight test, and operational safety program currently administered by a community-based organization.

(2) MODEL AIRCRAFT DEFINED.--For purposes of this subsection, the term ``model aircraft'' means a
