Every year the best modelers and pilots in the world gather together to compete to see who can be "Top Gun". This year the competition took place in Lakeland, Forida on April 28 - May 2nd. Top Gun has become a very special event for all involved and almost has a "family feel" to it. Not only are the competitors here to see how is the "best of the best", they also come together has friends and family. Even though the competition was stiff on the flight line, the feeling in the pits was more of a carnival atmosphere with competitors, friends, and family moved from tent to tent to visit with old friends, and to make new ones as well. For some entered in this event this is the only time of the year that they will see each other.

One reason that makes Top Gun such a special event is that is set up so that the public can meet and talk to those competing in the event. The entire pit area for Top Gun can be visited by those who show up to watch the flying at Top Gun. This gives the spectators the opportunity to talk to the pilots and crew for each airplane entered in Top Gun. And the participants for Top Gun gladly take the time to stop and talk to the public that comes out to see the event.

There was something that happened at Top Gun 2010 that stands out as the true spirit of Top Gun. The pilots that come to Top Gun each year are here to compete in the event and will go the extra mile to keep the competition going. That was evidenced this year by Rich Crapp, a competitor from England. Due to problems caused with air travel in Europe created by the volcanic eruption in Iceland he was unable to get the plane he was planning on competing with onboard the airliner. Even though he knew he would not be able to compete he still traveled to Lakeland so that he could at least be here for Top Gun. Once on site several suggested that he could still compete. He made a visit to a local area hobby shop and purchased a used Aeronca Champ that was hanging from the ceiling of the store, and brought it to compete with. While it he had numerous problems getting the engine to run correctly he still did his best to compete in Top Gun. This "can do" spirit is the heart and soul of this event!

The best way to explain about Top Gun can be found directly on the Top Gun website:

From the Top Gun Website:

Top Gun was fathered by Frank Tiano in an attempt to circumvent the rules that were being applied at scale contests at the time. In the early days of planning T.G. Frank had a lot of assistance from another well known scale modeler, David Platt. Some of the rules in place at the time allowed sub par airplanes to compete along outstanding ones with little or no consequence in the final static score. And sometimes, the flying scores for these not so scale models were quite higher than the more accurate models because they were more stable. Enlarged stabilizers, more vertical fin area and thicker wing sections were the norm for many scale models and these models flew like giant sport models. The rules were easy to get around and in some cases out and out cheating would take place. Tiano's mission was to get rid of the nonsense while offering an entertaining event packed with action and fun for the whole family.

Top Gun introduced more stringent static guidelines and tougher flying guidelines too. The event was far tougher to compete in than the Nats or the ever-popular Scale Masters. And to make matters more interesting, this was the first scale contest to become an "Invitation only" event.

Top Gun is as much a Social Event as a model contest. With 70 to 80 contestants, there is a lot of work that goes on to make the event come off, or appear to come off, smoothly. There are 20 paid Judges, a Score Keeper, and huge club involvement, this time by the Imperial RC Club, that make it all come together. There is a staff of 6, that set up and tear down the "show", and 10 temporary employees that do everything from parking cars to keeping the rest rooms clean. TG attracts, on average, 50 different model manufacturers and food vendors. Sort of like a Mini Toledo Show.

The judging parameters for Top Gun are a little different from most AMA contests. For example, the static judging score sheets are broken down into 4 sections instead of 3. There are 30 points awarded in each of 3 categories, Outline, Color & Markings and Craftsmanship. Then there is a separate 10 points for Realism. Realism asks the static judges to apply a score, from one to ten, on how realistic the model is. Is it too shiny, over weathered, does it look like a toy, or does it appear that the model is a shrunken full size aircraft? The flight portion of the contest includes 4 rounds of flying. For Masters, Expert and Team, Two are completed on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. Maximum score for the 10 maneuvers is 10 each, for a possible perfect score of 100. The weakest flight score is discarded and the remaining 3 rounds are averaged for a final flight score. The contestant has 4 mandatory maneuvers and 5 optional maneuvers for 9 total maneuvers and a final realism category for flight, worth a maximum of 10 as well. The 4 mandatory maneuvers are Takeoff, Slow Fly-by, Fast Fly-by and Landing. The 5 optional should be prototypical of the full scale airplane. So, we don't see DC-3s doing 4 point rolls, and since the rules prohibit any aircraft capable of doing aerobatics from doing straight flight maneuvers, we see great loops, bomb drops and inverted fly-bys from the airplanes able to perform them. The title of Top Gun goes to the pilot that has the highest total score, flight added to static, between the Masters class and the Expert class.

To help understand a bit more about the judging process we took a little time to talk to Jim Martin and Bill Hurt, who are both judges at Top Gun 2009. Jim judges airplanes in flight and talks a little bit about what he looks for when a plane is in the air in front of him. Bill is a judge for the Team Scale Class and gives us some real insight into what makes for a World-Class Top Gun Model. We would like to personally thank Jim and Bill for taking time from their busy day to talk to us so that our readers have a better understanding of the judging process
 

 

Top Gun was created to reward true craftsmanship and attention to detail. It differs from AMA scale competition in one dramatic fashion; AMA scale static judging takes place at 15 feet from the model. Top Gun judging takes place at a maximum of 15 feet with craftsmanship and outline or color inspected from as little as 0 feet. That's right, 0 feet! Another difference is that static judging is broken down into four categories instead of the three used in AMA scale. Outline, then Finish, Color, and Markings, and Craftsmanship are judged with a possible score of 30 points each. The last category is an available 10 points for realism and this consists of the overall impression of the aircraft looking like its full scale counterpart.

Competition at Top Gun is broken down into several classes.

  • Pro-Am Sportsman class: To fly in Sportsman a contestant may have flown in any AMA judged competition but not have finished in the top three in any two of the events. A pilot may also fly in Sportsman if he or she has finished no higher than 15th in their class at any previous Top Gun. The winner of the Sportsman class must move up to Pro-Am Pro the following year. Also the documentation required is much less stringent in Sportsman. A contestant must have a photograph proving that the aircraft and color scheme exists or existed. He or she can only earn 25 points for documentation or none at all.
  • Pro-Am Professional class: Top Gun invitees that have won or finished second twice in Sportsman are required to fly in the more difficult Pro class. Also, aircraft that have "timed out" in Masters and Expert may compete an additional two years in Pro-Am Pro class. The same documentation requirements as Pro-Am Sportsman apply to this class as well, meaning that documentation of the aircraft and color scheme exists is all that is required. Even though these are considered "amateur" classes, make no mistake, the aircraft must be worthy of competing at Top Gun and would be a striking stand out at nearly any flying field across the country. You won't find any ARF's here, no matter how good looking!
  • Expert and Team class: The Expert and Team classes are essentially the same thing. The main difference is that in Team Scale competition the builder of the model can have anyone that he or she chooses fly the model in the judged flying rounds. Expert pilots build and fly their own aircraft.
  • Masters class: Masters Class is for the true craftsmen of the world. Masters planes start on the drawing board of the builder where they hand draw the planes and build the aircraft from scratch. Landing gear and safety components may be obtained commercially but the vast majority of fabrication is done by the individual presenting the aircraft for judging and flying. Many of these planes are museum quality works of art.



     

An event the size of Top Gun requires a large group of people dedicated to putting on the best event possible. There are two separate crews who make Top Gun possible that deserve a moment of recognition here. They are the Judges and Officials of Top Gun and the Imperial RC Club of Lakeland, Florida.

The Imperial RC Club provides the workers who organize and operate the flight line for Top Gun (as well as Florida Jets and Monster Planes). These members put in long hours in a hot flight line environment in order to provide a safe and organized flight line for the event. Because of their work there was no confusion among the pilots as they came to the flight line to compete, in addition they kept the area safe for all involved in the event.

The other group mentioned was the Judges and Officials for Top Gun. Without these people dedicating their time and skills Top Gun would not be possible. Bill Holland is the groups Head Judge and is responsible for keeping the judging team as professional and fair as possible. All judges for Top Gun are hand selected because of their knowledge in aircraft and their flight characteristics.

Both groups deserve very special recognition.

Top Gun is an ever changing event and changes are made to accommodate the hobby as it changes. In addition, changes are made to help improve not only the quality of the competition, but the location as well. Top Gun's organizer contacted us and has asked that we include the following announcement of important changes for the Top Gun 2011 competition.

Information For Top Gun 2011

To all Top Gun past and future contestants.

I have been granted the luxury of sharing some very good news with you here.

First, Top Gun, Florida Jets, Monster Planes and the new events we are planning will be held at a new and different part of Lakeland Airport, starting with “Monster Planes” 2010. The new area is being constructed as you read this and will feature an 800 x 70 foot runway of beautiful Bermuda Grass. The overruns will be grass also and will have no “lip” so if anyone lands short of long there is no consequence to the landing gear or airframe. The flying area out in front of a pilot and to each side is unrestricted.

Top Gun will get a Rules Change, perhaps the last one for awhile. Because the Grass Runway enhances the takeoff behavior of tail dragger aircraft, we find it no longer necessary to reward those airplanes with a bonus score. There is an extra portion of runway that will allow tail draggers to take off into the wind, should cross wind conditions prevail.

The Top Gun Board has decided to add one new class and limit another. First, the Team Scale class must consist of a Builder and a Pilot. The Builder must be the “owner” of the model and must have financed the construction himself, with aid from the pilot if needed. NO outside, financial, intervention is allowed in this class, starting 2011.

The NEW class is titled “Unrestricted”. The Unrestricted Class will be comprised of a Minimum of THREE crew members and a Maximum of 6. The model may be funded by any person or group of people, a manufacturer, a company outside the hobby industry, we don't care! There are NO rules concerning the building of the model at all. ALL other rules of Top Gun static judging and flying do apply. We ask that ALL Team Members of the Unrestricted Class wear Team Colors, team clothing so to speak. We want to create some interest in model aviation, bring back some spark to Top Gun and we feel this class, looking similar to a NASCAR team, may be a step in the right direction. Unrestricted Class will be funded with prize money and awards the same as the other classes.

The Last Three things:
ONE: ARF models are allowed in Pro-Am, as long as the outline is considered by Frank Tiano, Chief Judge Bill Holland or Head Static Judge Bob Curry to be accurate enough to be in the spirit if the event. Permission to enter the model must be received before the event.
TWO: The one thing that still remains “unfair” to most contestants at Top Gun is that molded fuselages and wings with perfect skins and defined panel lines and surface details are sure to get excellent Craftsmanship Ratings. These higher scores are without a doubt easier to achieve with composite structures than with wooden components that have been hand formed, sanded, fiberglassed, sanded again, primered, detailed by hand and painted. With that in mind we feel there should be some sort of adjustment to the Craftsmanship Score only on Composite aircraft. And we mean where all components are composite, not a model featuring just a fiberglass fuselage. We have not decided how to do this yet and all we can promise is that the adjustment will be small, and fair.

THREE: We are amending the TIMED OUT Rule effective with 2011 Top Gun. A model may compete more than three or four times. The only limitation is that if the model has placed in the Top Three a total of three times, then it IS timed out. We feel this will allow some contestants, who have found it difficult to prepare a new model over the past several years, a chance to rejoin us.

Buy the way, we are considering to have ALL events we produce to END on Saturday, leaving Sunday for open flying for those who wish to do so while we are tearing the event down. But advertised dates will be Thursday thru Saturday for all events other than Top Gun. We are thinking that Top Gun might be able to run Tuesday thru Saturday.

ALL Input and Comments are welcome to Frank@FrankTiano.com

And with no further ado, we would like to present to you Top Gun 2010. We strive to be the most complete and comprehensive coverage of the Top Gun event. Below you will find plane information, flight video, and pictures of all the competitors in Top Gun 2010. We do apologize that there are several planes that video is not available for, but this was because of circumstances beyond our control.

We hope you enjoy our coverage of Top Gun 2010.....


 

It takes more than just the pilots and the airplanes flying to make something like Top Gun an "Event". Probably more so than just the airplanes in the air the "behind the scenes" makes this such a great event to attend. Everything from the tents to the pets to the kids to just about everything else here makes this one of the best events in the country. While the pilots are all competing against each other they are still friends one they get back to the tent areas. Let our cameras become your eyes to see some of the sights of Top Gun 2010!!
