Academy of Model Aeronautics embraces autonomous flight and FPV

After years of what might be called something between benign neglect and hostility (just my opinion), the Academy of Model Aeronautics today put out a video blog indicating that they will embrace autonomous flight (they call it semi-autonomous flight, but that is nit picking...) and first person view flying.  Giving the sway that the AMA has with the FAA over this industry (see one of my previous blogs), this new development is great news.
