Ed Mason brought three glow-powered
multiengine models, each with three-line
Yak-9U with three-line control earned
second place in
control. Jim Fruit took the top static
award with 98.0 points and placed
third with his electric-powered
Rearwin Speedster 6000.
The Nats typically averages the
two best flights, which means you
can throw out the two lower flight
scores. This often changes the final
standings at the end of the contest.
If we had been able to fly the other
three rounds, the results would
likely be different, and pilots with
technical difficulties would have
gotten in a flight.
Profile Scale also had an increase
in entries, with nine models. Six
models scored between 90.0 and
94.0 static points, and again there
was a race to see who could get in
the best flight scores.
Harry Crespo and I were tied
with a static score of 94.0 points,
