Radio Control Scale Aerobatics

International Miniature Aerobatic Club
07/16/2024 to 07/19/2024
Flying Site: 

For detailed information see the IAC Calendar.

The objective of RC Scale Aerobatics is to demonstrate the precision and excitement of flying a Scale model replica in a manner that closely resembles the agility of the full-scale, world-class aerobatic champions of today.  Following in the footsteps of the International Aerobatic Club, in which full-scale pilots fly a specific set of outlined maneuvers in front of a panel of judges, RC pilots perform a similar set of maneuver sequences designed to suit one of the three skill-level classes: Intermediate, Advanced, and Unlimited.  The competition concludes with the Freestyle event, in which pilots fly an original aerobatics routine that lasts 4 minutes.  The routines are typically choreographed to music and feature daring, low-level altitude stunts.

June 21, 2021: RC Scale Aerobatics Ends

By Rich Whitlow

We woke up Saturday to rain and predictions of rain all morning. So, it was decided that the contest would be ended at this point and awards would be given out at 10:30 a.m. in the AMA Headquarters building.

It was a nice opportunity for everyone to enjoy the awards ceremony and get one last visit before we all left for home.

It was a great Nats and the Nats team and Nats pilots did a great job of making it a world-class event.
