We are FPV model aircraft pilots, in the USA, forming a SIG (special interest group)... while we are separate from the AMA, www.ModelAircraft.org, we are affilliated with & we cooperate with the AMA, in order to enhance model aviation for everyone.
FPV (first person view) is the hobby of flying RC (radio controlled) model aircraft via wireless video, from the point of view of the aircraft... FPV adds a new & exciting dimension to flying model aircraft!
Our Goals include integrating FPV flying into mainstream AMA activities, educating the public about FPV, helping new FPV pilots get started, acting as a voice for the FPV community within the AMA, organizing FPV fly-in events, and promoting fun & safe FPV flying.
We can use this site for emailing members, posting documents, coordinating teleconference calls, and communicating with each other. I expect we will outgrow this site after a while... for now, let's use it to grow our FPV group.
Documents, such as our Mission Statement, Goals, and ByLaws, as well as Links to helpful resources, Contact Lists, NOTAMs, TFRs, FAA, FCC, and related guidelines, will all be posted in this folder, as members create these resources: http://www.meetup.com/FPV-AMA-SIG/files/
To join the FPV AMA SIG, you must already be a current member of the AMA, www.modelaircraft.org.
Please contact me anytime, with helpful advice, suggestions, and offers to help with the group.
I look forward to your active participation in our awesome FPV hobby! :-)
PS - Details: The exact name of the group and the website address will likely be changed, once everyone provides their input on the name for the group. Once the group is legally incorporated, and the board of directors elected and in place, I will donate ownership of this web site to the group.
New members must be approved by the Organizer
