IMAC Competition, Horizon City RC Fliers
by Tom Holmsley May 4, 2018A great International Miniature Aerobatic Club (IMAC) Smack Down event was held April 28 and 29 at the Horizon City RC Fliers Club field near El Paso. There were 22 fliers from the combined Southwest and South Central IMAC Regions. This includes Louisana, Mississippi, Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas, and Arkansas. Those coordinating the event were Southwest Regional Director Doug Pilcher from Sherman, Texas, Area Director Rich Whitlow from Baton Rouge, Lousiana, Area Director Dave Powell from Sherman Texas, and Mike Taylor and others from the Horizon City Club. Competition was divided into Basic, Sportsman, Intermediate, Advanced, and Unlimited classes with 10 maneuvers in each class. There was no limitation as to the type of plane, but there was a size restriction of 48 inch wing span up to 42 percent, and no minimun age. In this event, Rhett Lambert, age 15, was the youngest contestant, and he was first in Sportsman Class and Freestyle. He attended the NATS in Muncie and is qualified to compete in World competition.
The winners in each class were:
