Probuild will be attending with a full range of aerobatic products and accessories for sale. Visit their website for a taste of what they have for the dedicated Freestyle pilot.

This site will be a source of information regarding the Free Style Competition held annually in the United Kingdom. The competition is the brainchild of Terry Westrop who won the title of British Aerobatic Champion for F3A on several occasions. The competition is sponsored and promoted by Radio Control Models & Electronics (RCM&E) magazine.

 

  This Website

As this site is updated it will contain information on the planned schedules for the  next competition. For the 2004 competition Terry designed a compulsory schedule which was used in one round, this was a bold move and it ran the risk of reducing the entries I am glad to say all of the pilots made a good job it.

We will publish the rules for the next 2005 competition and explain how the competition will be structured. The plan is to have a sound system available again this year, the pilots and spectators enjoyed it and all the pilots found it enjoyable to fly to. We will only use CD format  for your music, at the 2004 event all of the pilots brought their own CD's, this worked well with only a few CD's giving us a few tense moments this was caused by the high ambient temperature which made the Logic circuit go crazy and delayed the start of some of the CD's but the pilots coped well, I had goose bumps whils't listening and watching some of the flights.

Should you have any comments about the site and how it can be improved please let me know at the address below under contact at Admin@jmnetworks.co.uk

This website is a labour of love which I hope will further the cause for Radio Controlled model Aerobatics in the UK in what ever form. I have flown F3A for more years than I care to remember and have always had a soft spot for freestyle aerobatics.

TOC Las Vegas

The TOC was perhaps the ultimate Freestyle event and in 1994 my wife and I met up with our old friends Don & Clara Lowe in Las Vegas, my wife's plan was to go shopping, for Don and I it was the Tournament of Champions, I was looking forward to a ring side seat in the pits but as Don collected us at the airport, he said by the way you will be my scribe for the whole event, you can imagine how pleased I was, Don was a member of the judging panel. For those of you that have no idea who Don Lowe is he writes a column in RCM the American RC model Magazine, he designed the Phoenix series of F3A models. And now a new TOC style competition is named after him, he is also chief judge at this event which is the Don Lowe Masters he was also the president of the AMA for many years and if you go to their website and look in the Hall of fame you can read all about Don.
