The Senate version of the FAA reauthorization bill is rather interesting. It requires those of us who build models at home meet FAA design and productions standards and requires AMA members 13 and above take an FAA safety test and carry proof of passing the exam when flying.
We have been involved in introducing modeling to children of all ages, sending children to camp, doing flying demos at local schools, churches, and parks. We have also set up simulators and static displays at various locations as an educational experience to our community. We are always open to new ideas to promote our hobby to others in a safe way.
Just learned of this pending release by Tower Hobbies! This ARF designed by Gary Wright looks great and should be a lot of fun. Cheap, too!
