Hinesville School Flyer.JPG (158kb) downloaded 3 time(s).

SE Pilots, I just uploaded the flyer with details about the Judging School that will be held at the Heath Green Sky Ranch Club. I had the chance to visit and fly there and words will not do it justice, RC Heaven comes to mind. Enough room for three flight lines and then some.

Please spread the word about the class, all other regions are welcome to come.

Thank You
Primo

OK ladies and gentleman, 4 weeks before the class and folks are steady signing up. We need to continue to improve our judging skills, does not matter if you have been to one or ten Schools. I can promise you, you will learn something new or clarify the interpretation of a certain criteria. The rules and criteria are our tools to know what the AIRPLANE is NOT supposed to do. As pilots we are constantly multitasking, Throttle, Rudder, Elevator, Ailerons, Listening to the caller (well! some do not) Flight modes, wind correction, MAN! the list can go on and on right. Can you guys guess what judges need to do? I’ll leave it at that and we can discuss it at the School.

Let us ALL BE IMAC together, spread the word and please come support the instructors, Ty Lyman is traveling a long ways to be there and possibly Carlos Bonachea who just became a judging instructor.

Thank You for your time
Your Regional Director

Two weeks...if you've been to one, none, or ten, you'll learn something new.

There are those who will say I am slow, but this year makes Judging School number 22 for me. Some, I have just attended and others I have taught, but every year something new is learned.

Ty, Primo has 14 signed up and Clover Creek has 15.

This is good for IMAC!!

We were not able to do any flying, but we did talk a lot of set up. The new folks seeking advice know and understand much more than they were giving themselves credit.

We had 24 Students/Competitors from four U.S. IMAC regions - North East, North Central, South Central, and Southeast.

David and I hopefully provided everyone with a better understanding of IMAC, IMAC Rules, and IMAC competition.

Thank You

I want to take the time to say THANK YOU for making the effort to attend the judging Schools this past weekend, one at CC and Heath Green Sky ranch in Hinesville Ga. I know the weather was not the best, but we had some great discussion during the clinic day. On Friday I had some engine issues (I will get to that shortly and it actually turn out good for the clinic).
We had two Basic pilots and one Sportsman, Kevin Wilson flew both the Basic and the sportsman sequences for them while giving them pointers thru ought the flights, there is no better way to learn then to actually see it live, even for myself while I was watching Ty fly my Pro.

Clinic highlights;
Visually showing the Basic and sportsman pilots flying tips, where to position the maneuvers
Throttle management, no need to be wide open from maneuver to maneuver (I took note on that one)
Pilot etiquette and safety, no need to run up your engine next to the judges and pilots
Trouble shooting a problem, more often than not help is always around, do not be proud and ask for help
To make the story short I will start with what the issue was, the right front cylinder plug was not firing at times, it would come in and out, how we actually found it was after having a dead stick, and the cylinder was cold to the touch while the other one was hot.
After removing the cowl, this is what we did
1. Checked ignition battery voltage going to the regulator, OK
2. Checked for proper voltage OUT going to ignition module, OK
3. Removed all plugs to be able to spin the prop as if you were starting the engine. Two points to be made here, obviously much easier to turn over as there is no compression and to keep the engine from starting in case you forget to disconnect to power to the ignition module you are not testing, SAFETY FIRST.
4. After spinning the prop several times we could see only one side was firing.
Bad ignition.
