Watch these scale model aircraft doing fancy aerobatics
Aerobatics scale models - what a fun thing to watch! Model planes doing aerobatics, which are both clever and exciting as they roar up and down mastered by their skilful operators.
If you have never seen one of these shows, then this is your chance to see this elite group of people, showing off their tricks. These scale models are incredibly intricate and are made in all colours and styles.
Getting a scale model ready for the event
This is the National Scale Championship and it promises to be both thrilling and inventive and it is held over three days.
These are the best radio-control pilots flying large scale aerobatic aircraft from all over Australia and they will compete in known and unknown rounds over the three days to determine the best in five levels of difficulty.
The freestyle event is aerobatics choreographed to music with greater artistic freedom. This promises to be a highlight for any aviation enthusiast. The field will be available from the weekend prior to the event and will be available for setup for camping on Sunday 24th September 2017.
Take off - there she goes!
Flying can commence on Monday 25th provided an airways radio is being monitored for full-size aircraft and RFDS activity (SAWA members have one and will be there from the 24th onwards to assist).
It is being held in Wagin and the Wagin township is about 2km away from the strip.
Book your accommodation, to avoid dissapointment and this includes Wagin Motel and Buckingham Bed and Breakfast (4 Unicorn St, Wagin (08) 9861 1428).
Camping is also available on the field in designated locations.
The public will be invited to a walkthrough of the aircraft at specific times nd the event will be open to the public throughout the event, but the unknown and freestyle components will be promoted on the Friday and Saturday.
There is even a pilot in this one!
There will also be other activities to keep everyone interested throughout the competition without interfering with the competition itself. People who camp at the field will have access to a generator, and shower and toilet facilities will be brought in for the length of the event and a number of shade tents and marquees will be set up for the public, as well as to shade aircraft/pilots as necessary.
ASAA Annual general meeting and dinner (included in the registration fee) will be held at the WAGIN Sports Complex.
Entry is free to the public, with a gold coin donation being collected for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
