North Central IMAC Basic Primer 2019
I would like to thank Phil Shea & the Kent Radio Aero Modelers in Alto Michigan for hosting our Basic Primer! Spring finally arrived in our Northern State and the day could not have been better. A sunny sky and mild wind was very beneficial for the first flights of the season…
Overall, 13 pilots attended the seminar which included some familiar faces and some new pilots from the surrounding area. We began with a brief introduction to IMAC and spent close to an hour running through the basic Aresti. After the seminar we then conducted a flight demonstration exhibiting the different maneuvers and discussed judging criteria. A light lunch was served and we then proceeded with setting up each airplane and helped trimming in the air!
Special thanks to Cam McCausey & Matt Komar who greatly helped pull the event together. It was a busy day for all, but lots of fun and we look forward to next year.
