Flying crossbox direction?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
In Imac does one always cross away from the flightline or does it matter. Also how is the direction designated, as it is not spec'd on the schedule. Its OK if you fly the routine thru a few times but are there unknowns in Imac?
Looks like I will start with intermediate. Do you have to stay with what you pick all year? Thanks, Jan.

Happy New Year Jan

The direction for cross box is totaly pilot's option.

As you fly, you need to asses whether your placement in "the box" warrants an "outboud or inbound" cross box.

If you are already in tight, (say for instance the wind is in your face, and your plane is working it's way inbound on you) and close to the "deadline" you will obviously opt to go crossbox outbound, otherwise you will probably infract the "deadline".

You will find that "most" guys tend to go outbound.

A "newbie" to IMAC can enter at what ever level he feels comfortable flying.

However, once you fly ONE contest in a particular class you are obliged to stay in that class, you MAY NOT move down.

When you decide to move up is your choice.

When earn the required 3 first class wins in a season, you MUST move up to the next class, but are not required to move up until the next flying season, you can finish the current season in the class you are in.

The IMAC and AMA (MAAC) rules and Flying and Judging Manual are "must" reading for everyone.

Please visit the IMAC website to view these.

Keep practicing !!
