AMA FPV Approval: Code 550

Recommended Posts

Model Aviation magazine published by the AMA has a short article in the Jan-2009 issue (page 10) about their approval of FPV piloting in the USA. The ruling (Code 550) was passed last October, so this shouldn't be a surprise to everyone. http://www.modelaircraft.org/files/550.pdf

10 pounds, yeah right! My XLV is over 30!!! :o I assume they are not considering heli's. The XLV is probably the easiest heli to fly FPV and that's due to its size and weight. Very stable, less reaction to wind, easy to hover stationary, predictable as it gets, autos like a fluffy marshmellow, etc... All that adds up to a machine that's less likely to cause a problem. Not to mention that it can be seen a lot further out. I love it low and slow anyway. Showing off the hover skills...although it's really the XLV's handling characteristics. :D
