This just might be the most important message you read all day. This is for USA flyers. There are lots of new FAA regulations regarding drones and model aircraft. Probably 80% of the people reading this are not aware that as long as you are a hobbyist and fly for personal enjoyment you can FLY AT NIGHT, USE FPV GOGGLES, AND FLY WITHIN 3 MILES OF AN AIRPORT. How? You need to belong to a community based organization such as the AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) once you are a member you fall under this special rule which is law: https://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.modelaircraft.org/files/hr658_020112.pdf&sa=U&ved=0ahUKEwiDz9ShlJLPAhVE9x4KHb1ABpoQFggEMAA&client=internal-uds-cse&usg=AFQjCNHla7eEmMph_T9TBKMjmBbcVXBVog Not only does joining the AMA give you these legal benefits but it also gives you $2,500,000. Insurance coverage against bodily injury, property damage, and $1,000. Coverage of the theft of you model (drone). You don’t have to ask permission to fly near an airport. They give you the form letter (letter of notification) to send to the airport that is affecting your flying to advise them that you WILL be flying in the proximity of their airport. This is no joke. Spend some time on their website or give them a call. I have no vested interest in promoting them other than sharing this information with you and a happy camper member.
