Zero-Fighter, P-51D Mustang, Me-109 Messerschmitt, Wing-Cutter, Ryan and Cessna 172 sky hawk were lined up. This category is strictly limited, use 50CX size five poles brush motor (50CX is three poles type) including Union micro plane series kits, and inhibit any remodeling including change any shapes. Only permitted thing is coloring to dress up imitating RENO Air Race planes.

The other is Unlimited Class. This category has no-limit without takeoff gross weight that is under 200 gram, 7.1 oz. In this category we use out-runner brushless motor which power is about 80W supplied 3 cells Lipo and its capacity is from 500 to 800mAh.

Regulations were established NMFC club members and near Clubs in 2003.
