In the late 70's and early 80's, 1/2 A pylon racing was pretty popular. Even though it became an AMA event it appears that it has pretty much gone by the wayside. I have gone back and reviewed some of the many FUN things that this "recreational" racing accomplished. First it was relaltively inexpensive. You didn't need a 3/4 ton pick-em-up truck and trailer to haul your planes out to the flying field. You didn't have to have Q-40 piloting skills and most importantly it was usually a club event that a majority could participate in.... and again, it was FUN! Seems like many clubs have let "FUN" slip away. Anyhow I've spent the last 4 months redesigning an old 1/2A plane into what I call a "E-Quickie 200". The original was featured in RCM way back and it was also kitted as the Half-A-Stik. I have also written, or re-written, from the AMA event, some draft rules as a starting point. I am not in the kit mfg. business nor do I intend to. Plans and all information is available on my website: www.theolddog.net
