518 Scale
Gosh, I sure hope they do. I know 518 is listed on the entry form so I would assume so but cannot say for sure. We had some really nice models last year and the quality was way up from the year before, though the numberof models was not as great as we had hoped. All the AMA class pilots came down to watch the flyoff and were very impressed with the flying ability of the all the scale models, especially the turbines, which, while fairly numerous in general, are still rare to see fly in a scale application. Peter's Lama and Tim's Cobra were both awesome in the air and I was glad I didn't have to judge between them last year. Tim's sliding auto was very cool . Cobra was really amazing in the air and even made the cover of Model Aviation, a rarity in itself for a general hobby magazine.

US Nationals
Hay Gordie,

Thanks for the reminder.

The US Nationals is the absolute premier event for contest pilots. Although the event primarily crowns the very best pilots in the US, we have had competitors from many other countries as well.

The US Nat’s really draws competitors from all different skill levels and most competitors I have spoken to (over the years) indicate they always learn new ideas and improve there flying by the end of the event.

I hope to see many new faces; registration is still open!

Tim
