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.

After a beautiful Saturday, Sunday dawned with cloudy skies and the threat of thunderstorms. We were out early scrambling to cover models under tents and pull sides down on canopies. The storms then sort of sideslipped the AMA site and we didn’t receive more than a few sprinkles.

Round 3 started around 8:30 a.m., and the conditions were great for flying competition. Several pilots put in their best flights of the weekend.

Wow! What a perfect day! Yes, there was a little wind from the southwest, but everyone had a great time flying the first two rounds of competition Saturday in Designer Scale, Expert, Open class, Sportsman, and Open Fun Scale and Novice Fun Scale classes.

For the last few years, we have had the pleasure of flying off of Site 4 at the very back of the AMA property, in Muncie, Indiana, at the national flying site. This not only allows the RC site a great grass field to fly from, but provides enough room to include the CL Scale Nats division at the same time on the other side of the property.
