  1. This really got blown out of proportion. If any rc flyer can understand how to fly a basic rc trainer – the drones are very simple to fly. Of course FAA steps in understanding cameras are now involved for surveillance. Been in this hobby for over 35 years I guess the AMA will make money on training drone pilots UGH!!! Learn to fly a simple rc trainer then the drones are simple. So True!

    1. Have to ad you do have to read and understand the FAA rc regulations!

  2. Frank: We really appreciate your comments. I started building model airplanes when I was 10 years old, and I feel sorry for the younger generations that now have so many hobbies that have distracted the fun of model airplane fun that so many youngsters in past generations enjoyed. I’m 88 years old and model airplanes have continued to be involved in every year of my life.

    I thank the model airplane industry for all the enjoyment I have had from all your great productions!
