From the AMA forum on RCU:


"for those that need reminding, that we are not the only ones lobbying...

just a small part of those against us. "

I'm in Canada, and much of this doesn't affect me, so pardon my ignorance, but why do they see us as the enemy? We aren't specifically lobbying against them, in fact we have many similar interests. Don't we?

I don't understand this at all. Why do they see us as the enemy? That thread was incomprehensible.

It's scarey how the posters in that thread seem to see things so differently than most of what I've read here.

(...had to go back many pages to even half understand the drift of the conversations)

I feel dirty for reading that, so much hate in that thread.

Basically the AMA is old school and used to be the only game in town. They are the "establishement" and will protect their empire like other old school establishements are inclined to do when they feel threatened. DIY Drones is the new kid on the block and will be viewed with suspicion by the establishement.

Just a thought.

Just my two cents...based on the little I know.  AMA, similar to a Middle Eastern regime, is just fighting to avoid obsolescence as the progess of DIYDrones is catching up with them (150,000 members vs 15,000).  They are afraid that DIYDrones lacking AMA adopted standards may be promoting irresponsible modelers that will eventually lead to public backlash and tearing down all that the AMA built.The way to change their mind is to join them and affect change from within their ranks, with 15,000 DIYDrones members in one block within the AMA, you are significant "shareholder".  AMA may be able to provide a discounted membership for DIYDrones members.

Basically, I would not recommend mixing oppinions of individuals with oppinions of organisations, even if the individuals happens to be members of the organisation. This kind mixture too often leads to the wrong conclusions.
