SMALL 30th / Fall SMALL -- Oct 10-13, 2019 (Thr-Sun) -- Mayflower, Arkansas


SMALL 30th Anniversary/Fall SMALL 2019 will take place Thursday, Oct. 10 through Sunday, Oct. 13, 2018 at the Arkansas Sky Tigers Field near Mayflower, Arkansas, northwest of Little Rock.

Though the event doesn't start until Thursday, many of us will arrive as early as Tuesday, Oct. 8. If you plan to camp at the field, please let me know, so a camp location can prepared in advance.

This is a non-competitive "laid back" gathering of friends enjoying cooler weather, flying and fellowship.

As always...safety, courtesy and fellowship are important keys to a great time for all, so there will be a pilot's safety meeting each morning (9am) during the official event. Current AMA membership is required to fly at the Sky Tigers Field.

Small Model Airplane Lover's League (SMALL):

SMALL is for RC, Control Line, and Free Flight models of all types powered by single or multiple electric and fuel motors of individual .25 cu in equivalent or smaller (CL fuel engines may be larger), rubber, and even hand launch. Model rockets of solid fuel and air/water types have been flown. Innovative and different from the ordinary models are welcome.

You can find threads on past SMALLs going back to 2001 in the "SMALL Events" thread: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1460283

Excellent guys!

And just think....if we can gather 65 1/2A models at a cancelled SMALL, 100 should be achieved in October.

Good to read on the 1/2A thread that Canadian Mike (MJD) is planning to attend this event. He's planning to bring his slow flyer back to the Sky Tigers Field.

Suitcase Series - GNAT .010 build


The first build of my "Suitcase Series" 1/8A & 1/4A models for SMALL.

The GNAT designed by Dan McClain was the World's Smallest R/C Biplane back in 1964. Just quick afternoon of pure fun!
