What to purchase for IMAC

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am considering getting involved in IMAC next season, "Basic" to start.

I am not sure what plane to get or what size for that matter. I am thinking 25% but outside of that I am really not sure. I have recieved many opinions at our club. The engine selection is another issue but I suppose that can wait until I pick what I am flying!!

Any Suggestions............

Perhaps Jason will move this to Scale Aerobatics Forum but for now....

You can use anything in Basic. Here are a few questions before I answer yours...

How long have you been a "winged" pilot?
What are you currently flying?
What is the bigest engine you currently own?
How much do you wanna spens?
What Aerobatic Aircraft do you like the looks of?
Do you wanna go 2S, 4S or Gas?

Gotta warn you... once started down this path... it becomes an addiction!

Like Jim says - this becomes addictive
and doing drugs might be cheaper not really

you need to make a couple of decisions right off the bat, after all the stuff Jim has said then plan on spending around a grand to get something reasonable.
how many contests, do you want to get serious about improving etc.
If the budget allows, go for a gasser right off

The Wild Hare line of aircraft are really nice - there are 5 or 6 at my field now and these are very nice, with your favourite 50 size gasser (ZDZ are popular here, DA and #w elsewhere)
