I don't wish to start a contentious thread but I have a quick straight forward question I think someone knowledgeable can answer.
If I go to a club field to certify level 1. If it is a busy range, there is usually an engine vendor onsite, right? I certainly would be able to find that out before I travel.
I'm in both NAR and Tripoli as I know both groups are fighting the government so alliegence is not an issue.
I announce my intentions, go over the paperwork, buy an appropriate reload for a 29/180 or 29/240 RMS type engine and make a successful flight. Get the model back and everyone is satisfied.
Now, I go back home, fly with smaller legal motors, notify the FAA when I have a model above one pound and less than 3.3lbs. or > 62.5mg of propellant (I've seen some folks quote the law is saying the limit is125mg here so please correct me if I am wrong. I realize that I may be.) Having fun.
I decide to go back to site I certified and want to fly the G and H motors I certified level 1 at. I show my paperwork and would I be able to buy, one at a time, motors and use them that day on the field and not take any home or would I be expected to produce an LEUP?
If one can do without an LEUP, in that case, that would be a work around although one would have to live within distance of a range where you have an on site vendor and the appropriate waivers.
I find it weird that theoretically I could load up my basement with a pile of BP and composite motors (less than G size) and the ATF wanks get upset about the engines in the Level one bracket. Heaven forbid I keep an H or I motor on hand. Geez.
