Default 2018 NATs News

Hello HeliFreaks

We have some announcements about the 2018 NATs

When July 29-Aug2

July 29 - Practice, setup and 6pm Pilots meeting
July 30 - Competition starts 8am

We will plan to fly 3 rounds on day one, 2 rounds day two and day three. The intention is to finish the competition Aug 1st. Aug 2nd will be a backup day in case we get weather.

New classes
Masters - This will be provisional class. It will fly only the F3C P schedule. Depending on interest we will consider making this an official class for 2019. This class is intended to be a stepping stone to the official F3C class.

F3N Sportsman - This will also be a provisional class. It will follow the same format as F3N except you will only be able to choose maneuvers with a K=7 or less. Also this class will not do freestyle to music. This class is intended to be a entry point for F3N competition for the future.

With these 2 classes being provisional we are interested in your ideas and input.

More info to come...........we welcome your discussions and ideas.

I will be coming down to the Nats to participate in the Scale Helicopter contest as a judge and I also hope to be able to fly my MD-8 in Sportsman but if things are too split up, I'll have to wait for another opportunity to compete. I'll still have my helicopter with me, though. See you there, Mike.
