EMAC: Contest Pictures

Here are some pics from our recent EMAC (an electric IMAC) contest. The SEFSD club runs the contest as a "run what ya' brung" scheme so that you can fly either a scale aerobatic ship (per true IMAC rules) or an appropriate pattern plane. This makes it so that almost anyone can fly something they have in the hangar or simply fly what they want.

The flying conditions for the day were a bit more challenging than usual due to a strong south cross-wind blowing 90* to the runway. This made staying on course difficult as well as some very tricky landings. The crosswind was anywhere from 10-15mph so with some of the lighter wing loading airplanes this really pushed airframes around. It is a good way to learn how to use the rudder through maneuvers and how to anticipate which way to go during the maneuver: example; hammerheads into the wind vs with the wind.

Enjoy the photos:

Yep, it is a great field to be in relative easy driving distance. This series has really grown and is more fun than stress when compared to some other competitions.
