These are not toy airplanes…really

#section336 So as it turns out it’s only drones that have to register every drone they own. Under section 336 model aircraft for recreational use only have to register every 3 years but you do have to place your FAA number on the tail of every model aircraft you plan to fly.

The rules say all model aircraft to be flown outdoors. Which means Free Flight is not exempt as far as I can tell.

This of course is all ridiculous and we have the drone problems to thank for it. Model airplanes are not drones!

Lastly the next person that says, “oh you fly toy airplanes?” will get blocked. 😉 Toy airplanes don’t have to have FAA tail numbers and the flyer carry an FAA card and here’s the damn proof:

    As a life long modeller (50 years so far) I too hate the models I build being labelled as “toys”! I would never use that term for models, be they the static kits I build or the flying kind.

    Of course they’re not toys. Toys are something you buy for a kid. These are highly technical scale airplanes that require skill to fly. They’re for adults, or at least teenagers who know how to properly operate them and can get their FAA card.
