Dick, WA2ROC, has presented DFMA programs on radio controlled aircraft before.  But it has been a few years...  Dick reports:

"I have been a licensed radio amateur for 53 years now and have enjoyed every minute of it.  I mainly focus on vacuum tube high frequency radio equipment, commonly referred to as "boat anchors" but they certainly keep the workshop warm on cold winter evenings. I have been asked to present a program about one of my other hobbies, building and flying radio controlled model airplanes, a hobby that I have been involved with for more than 35 years.  I'll show the DFMA members what I have been building and flying in the last several years, one of my latest projects and I'll try to answer questions concerning the new controversy about so-called "drones" and how my hobby could be "grounded" if rogue drone pilots violate the upcoming rules being formulated by the Federal Aviation Administration."
