I just recently bought a RTF Hangar 9 Arrow, with the plan to convert it to UAV use. I just flew for the first time last weekend at a local AMA club that was having a newbie day. I was shocked by their membership fee ($125/year) plus the fact that you had to buy into the AMA membership as well ($65/year). I emailed them to make sure I could fly my UAV in the future, and they said no, the AMA doesn't allow this on any AMA chartered field.
Now I'm confused. I've been reading all sorts of forums including on rcuniverse and rccam, with regards to both UAV and FPV type planes and I seem to get conflicting info. Is it legal at all to fly your own UAV without FAA certificate and AMA insurance?
