Ocala Florida Pattern contest

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
As many of you know I have a renewed interest in Patterns flying and have recently returned from a trip to Florida where I competed in a Pattern contest held at Ocala Fl. I have posted a report and many pictures here. http://albums.phanfare.com/5187035/3596775

For many years now I have spent countless hours and untold $$$ building and flying IMAC airplanes and loved every minute of it. The fact that I am now concentrating on Pattern should in no way suggest that I have developed an dislike for IMAC, quite the opposite.

Some facts I have to deal with. The Guelph/KW/Cambridge area does not lend itself well to 40% IMAC planes primarily from a noise perspective, that is the reality. My only real option is to travel 112km (one way) to the 400 club to fly these big airplanes and for me, at least for the time being, this is not a realistic option for an ongoing basis. I will fly IMAC again and still have my 40% Carden Extra 260.

After having flown a new style pattern airplane for the first time since 2000 I was quite surprised at just how well it flew and the significant improvement in all around flying quality since then. For the last few months I have been flying a "borrowed" CA Models Genesis and now have a CA Models Osmose EVO and an Oxia Aries waiting to get equipment put in them.
These are the models I will be campaigning with this summer, also next year for team trials in the hopes of a place on the Canadian F3A team in 2011.
