Waldo Pepper's Flying Circus
Hello - I am the CD for Waldo Pepper's Flying Circus, held at Southern Alameda County RC (SACRC, aka SACRats). It is a sort of Dawn Patrol event -Early Birds, WWI and aircraft introduced up to about 1935. This year we had Micro Antic racing, Open (Military) Racing and a Balloon Bust. Michael Heer took some photos and video on Sunday http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...4#post10677129
The Micro Antic racing was a gaggle - all of us took off at once. We are continually improving this race, and it is not restricted to Micro Antics, but any similarly sized airplane. The Open Racing was time-trial style racing - take off, one oval (left turn, left turn) then start 2 figure 8s (right turn, left turn, right turn. left turn - then dive to cross the finish line. You do not have to land on that pass. Time starts from "GO" and ends when you cross the finish line.
There are some videos on YouTube as well -
Come fly with us next year!
