    Not much different here with shipping companies. We've had to go to Boise... a scant six miles away from home, just to retrieve a package that the shipping company swears they just can't deliver it for another couple of days. Really??? You're kidding, right? Doah!

    Well I was hoping to get out today with the boys but it is not looking good. Very little wind but it is really dark and it looks like it wants to rain. It rained a little but stoped and has not rained for about an hour if only the skies would brighten up up a little then there will some hope.

  4. Well regardless of the weather or time of year we best get what flying that is going to get done, done. The Senate passed the reauthorization bill which pretty much kill's the r/c hobby.
    I am hoping the FAA let's us stay the way we were, but, I can see them adding flying is to be done at a chartered club or a sanctioned event.
    I really do hope!!!

    Certainly a sad day for the hobby.

    Everybody settle down... This just allows the FAA the authorization to make new rules that blanket everything for the future. There is nothing set in stone here, and for all we know it will exempt AMA or "CBO" members from the hard regulations. The FAA has discussed many times about how traditional airplane/helicopter pilots are not the issue and they don't care to interfere with them or with anybody in a CBO. We have FAA reps down here that don't even want anything to do with it in the first place.

  8. That has been my hope from the get go and I have stated virtual
    That has been my hope from the get go and I have said the same thing a time or two. But you never know, and now they can change the rules whenever they so choose.

    I really hope that's the case, but my faith in the FAA took a dive when I had to fill out a form that said "Register My Drone" I don't own a drone, don't want a drone, and don't want to be lumped in with them.

    The only things in life that are certain is one day we go to that big flying field in the sky and change. I hate change. I guess I am an old dog. I just want my bones (planes) and want everyone to quit telling me where and when and how high I can fly them.
