Just watched the Oct. episode. What a great idea to involve those of the public who might never get to the museum. The ask Claire and Fly By ideas are I think genius on the part of the AMA and the staff who recommended and built the programs. Best of luck!
Seems odd to see so many people flying fpv without a spotter. Has the rule on spotters changed, or is flying fpv solo safe at an organized event? Check the video at 2:07, two fpv pilots and zero spotters.
AMA’s rules surrounding FPV do require a spotter for all FPV operations.
While it sounds like you’re already familiar with AMA’s rules surrounding FPV flight, details of our rules can be found in AMA’s safety document, Unmanned Aircraft Operation Utilizing First-Person View, at https://www.modelaircraft.org/files/550.PDF.
We appreciate your asking for clarification, and have removed the portion of the video you referenced to avoid any confusion of the issue.
