Greeting

We are an AMA Chartered Remote Control Airplane Club.


  

SRQ RC Squadron is pleased to announce a new "FPV pilot program" trial as a new and exciting way to fly RC model aircraft at our Club. Flying fixed wing model aircraft via FPV (First Person View) is an emerging aspect of the future of remote-control model aviation. It combines the tradition of flying fixed wing model aircraft with the immersive experience of being able to put yourself "in the cockpit". This method of flying is a great entry way into our hobby for new pilots and aviation enthusiasts and is a great alternative to flying via Line of Sight (LOS). To participate in SRQ RC Squadron's FPV pilot program, pilots must strictly adhere at all times to AMA guidelines and SRQ RC Squadron's field rules and regulations.   - FPV pilots must follow AMA rules and regulations as outlined in the AMA 550 documentation found here:
https://www.modelaircraftorg/sites/default/files/550.pdf - FPV pilots must remain within the existing flight box at all times.
https://tinyurl.com/y2klw75y - FPV will be allowed for fixed wing aircraft only (electric, nitro, gas).

- New members seeking to fly via FPV at our club must be certified through orientation with a Club member and must pass a basic FPV knowledge and demonstration test.   Howell Smith IV, Anthony Lassiter, President
