I think at the beginning if you registered within a certain time period they would refund the money.

You must have gotten a card only.
When you register you must have to pay for labels.

I don't remember any thing about labels,I printed out 40 copies so I could put one on each one of my planes.

You can't buy a club membership without the MAAC membership, I think you will find that right across Canada

Technically by that alone , anyone who flies anything over 250 grams (that's about 1 pound, I think) are required to register it. So, from what I have heard and searched for myself in lots of posts/comments of others the FAA rarely if ever listened to the concerns or recommendations/suggestions of the AMA . And as for me, being a liberty, freedom loving patriot of the Constitution of America, I won't and never will register . But hey, what do I know? It's only my humble opinion . ^_=

You misunderstood me. I understand the reasons behind the vilification, but really, those that abuse are the minority, and as usually happens in life., the bad minority kill it for the rest of us. The majority of quad flyers, even aerial photography flyers, are not in it to invade privacy. And the laws made to protect the privacy? Well those that already invade others privacy will not think much of the laws. They will do it anyway.

But more laws will come and prohibit the good people from flying, all because of the bad few. I dont think "Ahhhhh my privacy is invaded" if I see a quad, nor does the first thing I think of when I see a quad is a camera. But for most non RC folk, thats what comes to mind. I was flying a toy quad in my backyard. No camera, no nothing. Just zipping it around. I heard the 8 yr old boy next door ask his sister. "You think he is filming us?" Thats automatic thought out of an 8 yr old. Something wrong there. And the issue is not the few that do bad, its the press that they get, when the good gets NO press. its just wrong. Guys peeped on women LONG before quads were invented.

So yes, I understand the issue. Does it merit vilifying all quad flyers? Not even close.


I'm like you, and it the regulation is written to broad and vague about this issue and in the hobby.

On a side note not even remotely related to this thread/topic, how does one now edit a post they already posted it? It seems I am not able to do so like I could before.

I would gladly pay only $5.00 for 3 years, my MAAC membership is $80.00 and only good for 1 year.

I need to clarify part of my thoughts on AMA. I know they have done great things in the hobby and have done wonderful in promoting the hobby, but with some of the recent dealings with FAA (especially with the Obama administration) they seemed ineffective or did not have much influence with them. I don't know if it was his administration or the one before things were or might have been heavy handed or over reached because of the events since the 911 terror attacks. I know for sure on the new drone/quad regulation seemed to fall on deaf ears. So my apology to those who might have seen my comment on AMA unfair and such.
