The 90th Annual AMA NATS is in Full Swing

Every summer the AMA hosts the National Aeromodeling Championships in Muncie, Indiana. The facility is huge and allows many different aeromodeling disciplines to compete all month long. It's a great time to get together with your RC buddies, make some memories and see how you stack up against the competition. I know a lot of the soaring pilots call it Glider Camp and I'm bummed I can't be there as the RC Soaring competitions kick off tomorrow July 22 and run all next week.

Here's a list of all the disciplines that are competing in the outdoor NATS:

  • RC Scale: June 23-25
  • RC Scale Aerobatics: June 28-July 1
  • CL Scale July 14-16
  • RC Pylon Racing: July 14-21
  • Control Line (Navy Carrier, Precision Aerobatics, Racing, Combat, Speed): July 16-22
  • RC Combat: July 17-20
  • RC Soaring: July 22 30
  • Outdoor Free Flight: July 24-28
  • RC Helicopter: July 31-August 3
  • RC Aerobatics (Pattern) July 25-29 (Hosted in Blythville, AR)

Don't forget to check out AMA's daily NatsNews newsletter, recapping everything that happened the day before, including Indoor Nats, held in Rantoul, Illinois, and the RC Aerobatics Nats, which will be held in Blytheville, Arkansas!

I've been out all day with F3H Cross Country Soaring taking photos for NatsNews and waiting for the right lift to take off in the convertible on the course. Great small group of guys and gals!
