    Winter Fun Fly!

    By Admin, in News,

    All, weather permitting, lets get together this Saturday Jan 12 for an informal Winter Fun Fly!   Most clubs did not attempt a frozen finger fly on Jan 1 due to terrible winds.   Anything goes, bring whatever you have!   We can also share tips and tricks for winter flying, share any updates on winter building projects etc.   Very informal.    We could do a coffee and donut run if enough people show up.

    By Admin, in News,

    Here's wishing everyone a very happy new year!    The Lazy Loopers board is meeting in a couple of weeks to pull together our 2019 plans and we look forward to sharing those with you.
     
    In the meantime, I would like to request everyone to please take a few minutes and renew the membership for 2019.   It really helps the club a lot if we can get the membership squared away by March 1 to help with our AMA charter.
     
    Just print out the application form, attach a check and mail it in to the address indicated.

    On December 12th, President Trump signed the National Defense Authorization Act which reinstated the FAA's sUAS registration requirement. As a result, ALL 'drones', which under the law are defined as any small Unmanned Aircraft System, or in plain English- ANY RC aircraft weighing more than 0.55LBS and less than 55LBS.   We strongly encourage all LLFC members to comply with the law until such time as the AMA can either secure a waiver allowing AMA members to use their AMA number instead or until further legal challenges and changes are made. 

    From the FAA Website: " You will be subject to civil and criminal penalties if you meet the criteria to register an unmanned aircraft and do not register. "

    Again, the Law defines Model Aircraft  as follows (originally from the FAA website FAQ)

    Is a UAS the same as a model aircraft?
    Congress defined a "model aircraft" as a UAS that meets all of the following: Is capable of sustained flight in the atmosphere Is flown within visual line-of-sight of the person operating it Is flown for hobby or recreational purposes
    We prefer to take a better safe than sorry approach to this issue. We'll be updating our member application to include your FAA registration number again as well as your AMA number.

    The law doesn't require you to register every plane/heli/drone you own. Only that you register yourself and affix the FAA number somewhere on your aircraft. It can be hidden inside the battery compartment as long as the number can be easily accessed with simple tools - like a screwdriver.
    If you haven't already registered, you can do so here: https://registermyuas.faa.gov/register
    The AMA has created a small FAQ to answer questions about this matter, and you can find it here: http://www.modelaircraft.org/aboutama/faa-uas-faq.aspx
