Not all the time. I enjoy the Epp 'cause you can try crazy manouveres and practice them, then trasfer them to balsa. I vote you get the 40" Keith.

Another IMAC contest in the books

Had a blast flying again this year in the Cincinnati IMAC"Burn It" Challenge! Flew 2 contests last year and now 2 this year but moved up to sportsman this year. Sportsman was the biggest class with 10 pilots but the total pilot count was 31 pilots! I came in 5th but I know I got at least (1) 1000 after round 3 but not sure after that. I don't think I zeroed any of the unknowns so I'm happy. I forgot to pick up my score sheets but the results will be posted soon.

I wasn't plan on flying freestyle since I hadn't flown the 8shp in 2 weeks since the vette city thing but they talked me into it. I knew about the touch the ground rule gets you a zero but I totally forgot about it and I realized it after I drug the rudder across the ground a couple feet a few minutes in. Also I think nobody there ever seen a pop-top before and were amazed by it. Everybody saying they never seen that before, what is it called, where did you see it, how do you do it, etc.

After watching intermediate so much I want to give that a try and practice both knowns and uknowns. That should make sportsman easier to fly. I had a great time and overall a very fun event and the food alone is worth the trip. They slow roast a ton of chickens and corn on the cob with a larger rotisserie for the saturday night dinner. Also after free style its a layed back fun fly like a huckfest then foamys right before dark.

I just thought SteveT. Reccommended the regular Ice version earlier in the thread.......
I still prefer the regular version, and had no problems balancing the plane with it.
