These are the same maneuvers we all usually fly when we are burning holes in the sky. So bring your bird out and Join us for some good ole Texas Hospitality!

It is that simple
In addition we'll have some of the top pilots in the world at the event so you'll get to meet them and learn from them.
Brett Wickizer Wold FAI Team Member, XFC Competitor Rick Byrd (I'll update more as I get confirmation)
The format we are going to follow is Saturday Start the IMAC contest at 8am with the 1st plane in the air at 8:30am. Weβll fly all day getting 2-4 full rounds of flying in (depending on the number of attendees).
Event is limited to 60 Registered Pilots
β’ Basic (introductory class fly any aircraft you want)
β’ Freestyle (This is a combo of 3D and precision flying. Usually
done to music) Know to Spectators as "The AirShow"
We will then have the 1st round of the Freestyle Contest after the IMAC rounds are completed.
If your not familiar with the TAG Program (Take off and Grow) it was developed by the AMA to generate interest in our hobby. Spectators will have the opportunity to get to fly RC models.
Sunday weβll start at the same time and fly 1-2 rounds of IMAC then have the final round of freestyle and then have the TAG program the rest of the day while we do the prizes and awards. We are also going to provide a certificate of completion for each and every TAG participant we have.
The event is really geared to getting new people to try out precision aerobatic flying. We will have extra incentives for 1st time competitors and bigger larger trophies and more awards for the entry level class. BASIC is the Introductory level class and you can fly any airplane you want. Weβll have people at the event to help educate new comers so they can have a great time and do well.
We will be advertising at the local schools and churches as well as the local full scale airfields for a βRemote Control Airshow β This will hopefully help attract a large spectator following. We are expecting over 500 spectators for the Freestyle portion ie RC AIRSHOW
In addition we are expecting Radio and TV Coverage as well as the local newspaper.
We have also gotten some verbal commitments to help support and promote us from the following:
β’ Great Day Houston TV Show

β’ 42% Products
β’ Higher Plane Productions
β’ Micro Fasteners
