NATS Schedule and info
Looking for info on the 2008 Heli NATS , been to NATS before for other events but never for Helis.
What is the schedule for each event? Are all events flown or just certain ones from the rule book?
It looks like any most any heli is legal up to a .90, is this correct?
Could a normal Raptor .30 / .50 be flown?
Where Can I find more info?

Thanks!

Event Schedule
All AMA classes (I, II, III and F3C) are flown each day. Scale kinda does there own thing, well run by Peter Wales.
We try to get in at least 2 rounds per day after the first day for a a total of 7 rounds (this is really important to the F3C guys as this counts for the Team Trials for the World Champs in '09, which will be in Muncie).
Last year there was a guy flying a 450 electric in class II. Bring whatever you fly, all are welcome. Only the flight is judged, not the model.

Erich,
How is the carb smart running with Indiana climate? Is the Caliber flying well?

It's not a Carb Smart. MultiGov Pro with integrated mixture control.

The unit is working pretty good. I think I'm seeing better fuel economy now, as I'm ending up with more fuel in the tank after a typical flight. When I get home, I may attach a second arm to the Hover Needle to have better mixture control through the entire throttle range.

Nice shots, Brett!

I'll post the standings if I can find them online. Otherwise everyone will have to wait till tomorrow night.

Best thing to do is take a pic of the standings board and post that.
