Considering what the OP wants to achieve, registering a club (like any other model aircraft club) that operates under the auspices of SAMAA would be the way to go methinks. Utilising club facilities, paid-up members and paid-up guests can then legitimately fly their plasticies to build and hone their skills without undue interference from anybody.

What members do (or want to do) on a professional or semi-professional basis outside of the club is their own indaba. Then they would have to comply with all the ASLs, ROCs and other TLAs (Three-Letter Acronyms) of Part 101 ops. Not the club’s problem. (This really is no different to a professional airline pilot who flies model aircraft for a hobby. At the club he’s just another member enjoying his craft, subject to the rules & regs of the club and SAMAA. Outside of the club he’s subject to all the rules & regs that applies to his particular vocation).
Exactly my point.
