The second link expresses a related concern - that since no FAA bill exists, the AMA can't possibly know what is in it. That was a related fear of mine, too. Also, someone made the case that the FAA has never regulated RC flying and has not expressed interest in doing so. Still, I think that is different than my post, which takes issue with the AMA introducing
FAA legal language in the form of an extension to a law with no current jurisdiction.
I think mine is a valid and different concern about a heightened level of legal action potentially resulting in the restriction of freedom of RC moders, not imposed by the government (though they are always happy to trades new laws for votes), but by the AMA
For the record, I am not anti-AMA for those who see value in club membership. To each his own: have fun. But introducing new government restrictions where none exist, in exchange for money and/or power, is over the line.
