Long Time Member Parts Hobby

We recently received notification from Peter Baylinson’s family that, due to advancing age and ill health, he’s been forced to leave the hobby. Pete is a long-time MAAW member (his AMA number is 2367) who has been a strong supporter the club over the years, along with being a prolific modeler and craftsman.
We have arranged with the family to have a day during which any interested parties can visit his residence, review his collection, and take (after a donation) to a good home any items from his collection of models, accessories, tools and miscellany.
The day scheduled is SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25TH, AT 2 PM. The address is 80 STUYVESANT AVE., LARCHMONT. Attached are a number of photos of some of the main items, which include 7 aircraft, transmitters, chargers, a large drill press, an excellent metal lathe, table saw, and belt sander.
Mark your calendars-  many good, usable items will be available. Hope to see many of you there.

Flying In The Heat- Be Careful!

Dog Days of Summer have arrived, and with it temps to roast & toast. If you decide to fly during the peak heat hours between noon and 4 or 5 PM, make sure you take the necessary precautions. You know them well: 1) Wear loose-fitting clothing; 2) Wear a hat- ideally one that covers all of your head and neck; 3) Put on sunscreen (at least 50 SPF, and preferably, a broad-spectrum combo); 4) Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. This means with water, not fluids that are diuretics (soda, tea, etc.). Take frequent breaks in the shade, and make sure your equipment is not left out on the tables to bake in the sun (in particular, transmitters). Heat Prostration/Stroke can sneak up on you FAST without your noticing it.

Per AMA, FAA Registration Is Now Mandatory.

It’s official- as of a direct email from the AMA on 1/19, everyone needs to register with the Feds going forward. Accordingly, as an AMA chartered club we’re advising all members to comply with the new regs. This applies to ANY model aircraft over .55 lbs., including fixed wing, with or without FPV capability. Go to the following to register: http://registermyuas.faa.gov/. The assigned number MUST appear somewhere on your aircraft, where it can be accessed without the use of tools. We recommend under one of the wings, close to the root. While you’re at it, add your AMA number, which is also a requirement, but which is commonly overlooked. Thanks on advance for your cooperation.
