I wish there was a contest closer to me, but a 15 hour drive one way wouldn't be absolutely out of the question. I haven't been to a competition in over 25 years, but they were always so much fun, and I really miss the challenge. As luck would have it, I have that weekend off! I just might try to make it. :wink:

BTW, what is "Random Duration" and "Classic Model"?

Random duration is a precision duration contest where you try to hit precisely a targeted time from lift-off to landing. It is random in that the target is determined on the field before the first flight.

Classic Model is a craftsmanship event where you must duplicate a model that was available in kit form before 1990. You may build an up-scale or down-scale version.
