At least on my part, no apology needed Brian. You were/are just exploring another aspect of the hobby.

I feel with the explosion of smaller "scale" airframes in that 60 2C to 50cc size Mini-Mac should be a viable entity. IMO, Mini-Mac should be a stand alone entity. It should not ride on the coat tails of IMAC nor should it detract from Classic or Senior pattern. I think holding a Mini-Mac contest in conjunction with a IMAC contest is just to intimidating to the pilot of the small airframe.... and the fact it was limited to a .40 size plane to boot. With a revision limiting the upper size to 30cc or 50cc it is affordable and the size difference is not so great.

Use the IMAC sequences or the pattern schedule, it doesn't really matter. The skills will work both directions if the Mini pilot wants to go IMAC or Pattern at a later date.

The point is a new pilot will be flying in a competitive event. Where it goes is up to them.
