Status of FAA rule making

AMA recently held a public discussion on the topic of the FAA rule making process over unmanned aircraft and how it might affect the RC hobby.  You can see the video by going to this link: modelaircraft.org/amatv.  The rule has not been finalized and released yet but basically it sounds like AMA’s current rules and safety requirements will become FAA rules, about a year from now.  Be on the lookout for the comment period a few months from now when you will be able to object to the parts of the new rule that seem stupid.
