Default F6A "Artistic" Aerobatics

I can't seem to find much about this on RCU. I think it's pretty cool stuff!

There's a Yahoo newsgroup for Artistic Aerobatics, but it never had much activity. There doesn't seem to be anything happening with this in the US.

Call me crazy, but it looks for all the world like IMAC Freestyle.

Hey Bob:
There seem to be many similarities. From what I've seen,IMAC freestyle can be anything from a complete train wreck of 3D "dying fish" antics to some really impressive coreographed flight. Ithink that F6A attempts to bound this better, with more emphasis on an element of precision that is basically lacking in IMAC freestyle definition. As always, Icould be completely wrong...

I like the idea of having to perform a list of maneuvers, but having the freedom to do them when and where you want. I like that it's a little more 'free form' than pattern, adding elements of 3D while still focusing on actually flying the airplane.

I also would hate any of this if it were not for the precision.

This was tried a few years ago at the NATS. I believe Quique won the initial one. There wasn't a lot of interest, so it just kind of went away,

Not from what I've seen.
This looks like there's some planning, controll. Some type of routine, a method.
IMAC free style...wouldn't call it aerobatics, more simply momentary random-deviasions from level flight... Plus: FANFAIR OF TRUMPETS... the hover- with smoke!
And... (how could one forget): AS MUCHNOISE AS POSSIBLE!
No, this was possitively heavenly in comparision.

This is identical to the old TOC Freestyle routines that they used to fly back in the 80's and 90's in Las Vegas.  Mr. Bennett put on one heck of a show back then.

I think they need to try it again. Since the last attemptyears ago the 3D crazehas really strengthened. Possibley a way to intice more interest in precision flying once the stick bangers realize they cant hold a line for sh**

LOL, I have to come clean; over the winter (yes it's winter here, imagine that!) I've been banging sticks and giggling like a schoolgirl with small, 50" ships. It's a lot of fun to tumble and torque roll, and rolling harriers are quiite a challenge.

There's skill, but you really end up throwing finesse out the door, as the aircraft aren't set up for a good line. Personally I think the addition of single roll rolling circles and the like in F6A makes it an all round harder thing to fly than just stick banging.

Rediculous throws and aft cg's AND finesse? That's impressive IMO.

I will also come clean. I was speaking in "third person".I spent several years fixated on 3D only to hit a wall in my abilities with the lack of precision. Still my passion is to be able to perform a choreograped routine incorpaorating 3d and precision mixed in to something thats pleaseing to the trained eye although I will say this pattern stuff is starting to grow on me.  I think the F6a as potential these days if presented right. I can hear the purist pattern guys grumbling in the background already LOL

Hi,
Anyone know if "F6A Artistic Aerobatics" is still an Airsports Promotion Class for 2016?

It was in 2015:
Section 4 – Aeromodelling
Volume F6
Airsports Promotion Classes for Model
Aircraft
2015 Edition
Effective 1st January 2015

Maybe above is still valid for 2016 also?

At http://www.fai.org/fai-documents
one can see under "Sporting CodeSection 4: Aeromodelling", Archive, 2015, that it is "Sporting Code Section 4 - F6 Promotional".
Thers is no such document for this year directly under Sporting CodeSection 4: Aeromodelling.
