Loop, Roll and WIN!

Click here to read all the details! The Aerobatics SIG is pleased to announce our latest competition. Simply go out with your favorite model, do a loop and roll during your flight, and then have someone take a picture of you and your model (or take a selfie!) and email us the picture! That's it! The winner will be drawn at the Aerobatics AGM at the next Nationals.
NDC Scoring Remit - Click here to download voting form.
Reason for change: The Nats scoring method is required by the current NDC rules and would see
events with one or two fliers NOT rewarded with any points. The feeling is that this does not
encourage the flying of less popular classes. Similarly there needs to be some reward for winning a
strongly contested event. It is hoped this proposal will be accepted and apply to this year’s results.

2019 Nationals Registrations are now open!!

It's that time of year, entries for this years 2019 Nationals are open.Check out the link below.
Event dates can be found on the entry form, with the next issue of Model Flyers World having more details.

In Memory of Paul Henry Lagan, 6 July 1941 – 6 November 2018
