Top Gun 2014

Well, Top Gun 2014 is over and it was a difficult event weather wise. Friday from 11am on was washed out and Saturday was entirely washed out. They had to modify how the remainder of the event was going to be structured. Sportsman and Pro Am categories had their flight scores based on two flights instead of the best 3 out of 4. Team, Expert, Unlimited all only had one flight to count towards their flight score. So, the total scores were based on 50% static and 50% based on one flight. Most of the flights took place on Sunday. Here's how the two Canadians I was following did.

Team ( Graeme Mears builder and Ali Machinsky pilot) first place
pro Am (Sandro Novelli pilot , Blair Hawkins plane owner) - 10thplace

The win was Graeme and Ali's hire consecutive win with the T-33...well done guys!

Well done Graeme! It's cool that one of the best (if not THE best) scale builders is a Canadian!

Re: Top Gun 2014

Graeme Mears is one of the most talented scale builders on the planet. Built replica model ships before becoming involved in rc aircraft. Even as a novice in rc, his craftsmanship, attention to detail,( Flew overseas to document pa-18 supercub) and commitment were amazing. Congratulations are in order old friend.
