Great Hobbies Challange and Free style at Cornwall
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
We had a great time at Cornwall Aero Modelers Club today. They were 12 contestants participated the Great Hobbies Challenge. Two or three of the top pilots may be coming to do the basic at Stetson next week end.
We started the day with one round of free style (not judged). Than we broke for lunch. After lunch, we did the Great Hobbies Challenge. Contestants flew four basic maneuvers. Isabel and I judged them. It was real good to see so many motivated pilots who wanted to be part of the circuit.
We ended the day with one more round of Free style.

Great Hobbies Challenge
Here are some pictures of the pilots and organizers in action:
If you want to run a similar event at your club or a neighboring club, The Great Hobbies IMAC intro challenge instructions are available here: http://peneloperc.com/files/misc/introchallenge.pdf . The Challenge consists of 4 maneuvers (roll, 1/2 cuban, hammerhead and loop) judged in a very simple manner, and it can be run by any club (no IMAC experience necessary). Everybody who enters the Challenge is entered into a draw for a 100cc airframe from Great Hobbies (or a 1000$ gift card!), regardless of how you do - the important thing is to give it a try. The idea is to give people a way to try IMAC in a simple, accessible way, and from the way it went at the Cornwall Aeromodellers today, it really hits the mark!
I had a great time too! It was really fun to start and end the day with some freestyle demos and commented demos of the Basic to demonstrated the 'next step' for pilots who entered the challenge. Thanks to Roger and Karl at the Cornwall Aeromodellers for handling the club's side of the organization, Kevin for helping run the challenge and to everyone who took the challenge!
