AMA Drone Report 11.21.19: MultiGP Champions, Model Politics, AMA Expo's End

The RaceDayQuads 2019 MultiGP Drone Racing Global Championship presented by DRL has named its winners.

Both contests, Sport Class and Pro, were hard fought. Drone racing pilots from all over the world competed in global ‘Qualifier’ races so that they could rise in the ranks to partake in the Championship. After weeks of qualifying, the Sport and Pro Class competitions took place over two weeks at Daytona Stadium, Daytona Beach, FL. MultiGP raised the stakes this year by allowing International Pilots to participate, as well as offering two different classes of competition with Pro & Sport Class. On Nov. 8, 2019, U.S. Representative Greg Pence and Senator Todd Young sent a letter to the FAA Administrator, Steve Dickson, on behalf of AMA. Representative Pence and Senator Young are supporters of model aviation and wish to help the future of AMA. The lawmakers noted that, “As the (FAA) develops rules for recreational (UAS), we urge you to continue to work with the (AMA) to ensure the aeronautic hobbyist community is not unduly burdened. Should the FAA move forward to impose uniform restrictions on local clubs, we are concerned that this multimillion dollar industry and pillar in the recreational community will be jeopardized.” After a good 20-year run, AMA Expo as we know it, has come to an end. AMA officials announced the decision at this year’s show AMA Expo West, held November 1-3, in Pomona, California, after the AMA Executive Council voted to end the show. In lieu of hosting a national trade show once a year in Southern California and in New Jersey (AMA Expo East), AMA has decided to explore multiple district events across the country in 2020 and in the years to follow. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of the AMA Drone Report!!!
