RC Scale models are miniature replicas of full-scale aircraft.  They are judged for the degree of perfection in matching the full-scale aircraft's scaled measurements, finish, details, etc.  How well the models' flight maneuvers match those the full-scale aircraft could perform is also scored.  The models are quite varied; almost any airplane you can think of has modeled.  Today, even jet aircraft are becoming popular and are normally found in the top 10 of any Scale contest.

Outdoor Nats Update June 17, 2020

AMA looks forward to hosting a fun and safe Nats this year at the International Aeromodeling Center (IAC)! Today, we have new developments to announce for Nats 2020. 

2020 Outdoor Nats to Proceed as Scheduled

After careful deliberation, the AMA Executive Council has agreed to not cancel the 2020 Outdoor Nats. This decision is aligned with state and federal guidelines for events concerning COVID-19.

The 2020 AMA Nats will take place to the extent that individual Nats organizers plan and conduct their respective events. Additional safety measures will be in place to protect our members, staff, and community. Nats participants and visitors to the International Aeromdeling Center will have limited access to AMA facilities and should anticipate a scaled-back Nats experience.

AMA is continuing to monitor the situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and it’s impact on our upcoming events. Our final decision on moving forward with the Nats will take place June 10. AMA Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are also making decisions for their individual schedules, and some are choosing to make earlier cancellations for their events The following message is from Mike Barbee, president of the National Association of Scale Aeromodelers:
