One of the most innovative competitions to come alone has to be the XFC (Extreme Flight Championships). On its ninth year this event is an invitation only contest where the best pilots for helicopter and airplanes gather to thrown down some of the latest and greatest 3-D moves. This year I was there to cover all the action. This event has the competitors perform a 4-minute freestyle performance that involve many 3-D maneuvers close to the ground while choreographed to music.
Our coverage also includes the “AeroWorks Challenge” in its second year. This event is based on the full scale “Red Bull” air race series, but with 50cc and 100cc aerobatic aircraft. Be sure the check out the sick videos on our website along with many photos. Once you have checked out the event coverage on modelairplanenews.com website then look for our complete coverage in the October Issue of Model Airplane News.
