    Foolish to fly without it, to my mind. What are you going to do if your Phantom falls out of the sky and hits someone?

    Why are you unable to get AMA insurance? That would be the normal thing to do in the US.

    AMA does not cover commercial use.

    That is correct. I was speaking only about hobby operations.

    My home owners will cover some injury and damage. They have also said it will cover "fly away" loss, but ultimate decision will be what the adjuster decides.

    I have also purchased/joined AMA just to help out if hobby flight goes bad.

    How come I only paid $29 compared to the $58? I kept looking it over seeing if I purchased the wrong one

    Because you paid for half a year. It expires in December.

    Does buying an AMA membership automatically get you insurance or do you have to purchase something else?
