Good weather insured an awesome weekend for the Pilots and Organiser's. Aircraft ranging from 30cc to 150cc were put through their paces over the weekend ,from Advance to Freestyle Aerobatics sequences were flown with excellence and were fantastic to watch and be a part of.
CMC Hobbies and LSA South Africa along with generous private individual made the competition possible with sizable sponsorship. Special thanks to Clive and his team for yet another fantastic event at Howick Model Fliers Club.
