MAN at Kingston IMAA Rally in Canada

Aug 20, 2013 No Comments by

The 26th annual IMAA giant Scale Rally sponsored by IMAA chapter 217 and hosted by the Kingston RC Modelers club in Kingston Ontario Canada was an amazing time. Weather was perfect and the wind was almost non existent. Well over 100 pilots and almost double that many IMAA legal giant scale planes showed up and the fun was almost non stop. Each day there was a break in the open flying for 3D aerobatics and some of these planes were amazingly BIG! Also, there were many scale airplanes from giant WW1 and WW2 fighters to electric powered B-25s flying in tandem formation flight.

The gang at the Kingston RC club have an amazing flying field and working together with the guys from IMAA Chapter 217, this is a must attend event for anyone who like to think BIG!
