I am considering it :shock: It will be down to finances, dates and place. For us it will be a family turn out and would need to find a B&B or cheap hotel nearby, hence, need to know when and where before confirming anything ;)

Can I ask a possibly silly question Allan... please could you define the minimum requirement for an airframe to get something useful out of this weekend/get a feel for IMAC, and also any other requirements - e.g. prior experience of schedule flying?

It's worth coming along even if you haven't got a plane to fly. You'll learn a lot about IMAC and aerobatics in general to apply when flying any plane, even a shocky. In sportsman you can be competitive with almost anything that can cope in the wind. Obviously you'll have to work a bit harder with a smaller plane but that doesn't mean you can't win.

Generally the smallest you will see at a competition is 50cc. However, That is just because it doesn't really cost any more to run a 50cc plane than it does to fly a 5s electric or .90 size glow.

Basically, bring whatever you've got, you'll learn something useful whatever it is.

I went last year with 0 schedule flying experience. I have learned a lot !! I flew sportsman. planning an assault on intermediate this year. you do not need huge 200cc 40% to be competitive!

only way to put doubts to bed is to come along. I went along to the training weekend to see how it was and how the people are before committing to comps.

now wish I could do more than I do!! great bunch.

Steve - don't be shy - you'll love it .... And your 78 will be fine.
