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.

June 16, 2021: RC Scale Aerobatics

By Rich Whitlow

Welcome to the 2021 Mike Karnes Scale Aerobatic Championships!

Tuesday, June 15, was a beautiful practice day that allowed a good number of pilots to acclimate themselves to the flying site. An extra bonus was the chance to fly in some interesting wind and for pilots to get their wind-corrections perfected.

The AMA Flying Site, and specifically Site 3, is in excellent shape and is a beautiful place to fly.
