    RE: Plane size

    IMAC does not have a minimum plane size

    IMAA does but I do not remember what it is

    In the NE region of IMAC, we typically see Basic pilots flying 50 inch electrics and we have the odd pilot flying 35% planes, also electric, flying in Advanced

    RE: Plane size

    No minimum size for IMAC. 80" or 1/4 scale for IMAA. Bigger flies better and even for Basic I would not go smaller than 1/4 scale. For Basic it does not have to be the style of airframe that is super light. Too light and it'll get blown around like a kite. Basic is more about drawing clean lines.

    RE: Plane size

    Recommend flying something you already have if you're trying out Basic for the first time. New season fast approaching!

    Better to spend time practicing with another IMAC pilot at the field than spending money or time building a new airplane. Once you confirm you like IMAC, it might be time to invest in something still simple to transport, that will hold up to a couple hundred flights in one season.

    You'll get a million recommendations on airplanes to fly...here's one that just came out that looks promising and will probably take you at least through Sportsman with no problem:

    Put a canister on a 60cc motor like a DA-60 with the recommended prop like a Mezjlik and you'll score high on sound too.

    Most of all...have fun doing it.
