See this post!!!! And it looks like he's going to make black ones, which will go with any color plane, and will look very cool with the black and aluminum!!

You know Steve I have been involved with Product Development for 35 years and a joke always brought up is, "if you can't fix it feature it". That's what Castle needs to do, the new ad is, "Finally a smoke system for electric planes, and it does not need an extra channel either"

So...I'm wondering, would you guys suggest a crack yak? Because I will probably get the 40" edge when it comes out to replace my 42". I will then for sure also have a 51" in July too.

So the question is crack yak or 40"? I like the 40" idea better

They usually have longer up lines that real planes cant do but imac does have some insane stuff that full scale would struggel with though. Pattern will have "M" sequences like pull up, back 45 down, 45 up, 45 back to straight down and each line could have elements like snaps, and point rolls. Pattern has a box and things have to be centered exactly in front of you when its supposed to be.

In IMAC, you have to use a scale aerobatic plane. For pattern, the plane doesn't have to be scale so it can be designed to be the "perfect" plane.

The rules and processes are different as well. IMAC uses Aresti but Pattern is not allowed to.

I'll get in late friday and probably will not make the field. But over on FG they posted "You can start flying at the field after the sun is above the horizon, so you should be able to get in a practice flight before the contest." so I'll try to get out at the field early and get a flight in before it starts.

Here is the schedule:

Saturday, May 26
8am Registration Opens
9am Pilots Meeting
9:15am Flying starts – 3 rounds of Known sequences
7pm Dinner (Mike Barbee’s House – potluck)

Sunday, May 27
8:45am Pilots Meeting
9am Flying starts – 1 round of unknowns, 1 round of knowns (Basic will have 2 rounds of Knowns), Freestyle

My name is John and I'm the short guy with the 87shp with a big B&E Graphics Logo on one of my wings. Your more than welcomed to check us out. Bring a plane and I'll help you with Basic if you want to try it.

I looked on the website a while back and everything seemed further south/north.

Yep, there are loads of differences between them. I was just pointing out that IMAC uses scale planes but pattern doesn't.
