    How to start in Pattern

    Don, I've been flying for 6 years now mainly Edges, Extra's, Caps, 50cc size and down. At my club we have no pattern guys to ask questions about how to get started in pattern. By that I mean how would you advise someone on the following questions?

    What plane should I start with? (size and motor)
    How often and what pattern to practice?
    How do you go about entering a contest?
    Has anyone one wrote a book on Pattern flying for dummies?

    RE: How to start in Pattern

    Somewhere on the Horizon website I did an article about this very topic. I'll have to do some searching for that link.

    In terms of a plane, there are a lot of them out there. People that have been flying the FOCUS designs have many good things to say about them, and I've got a lot of experience with this design as well. It works well.
