This year I was selected to fly for Team UK in the IMAC World Champs to be held in Muncie, Indiana USA. This year has been spent preparing for the championships and everything has been geared around this huge event. The competition webpage is www.imacworlds.com
My dad and I will fly out later this week and meet up with Horizon Hobbies’ Mike McConville who is very kindly letting me borrow his Prototype Hangar 9 3.1m Sukhoi 26mm. It is fitted with a DA170 on RE3’s, JR servos and guided by the trusty Spektrum DX18. We spend a few days dialling into Mike’s plane and then make our way to Muncie early next week to tie up with the rest of Team UK. A big thanks to Mike for giving me the opportunity to fly the very first 3.1m Sukhoi built to his design, which later became the hugely popular Hangar 9 ARTF, no pressure!
We have been fortunate enough to practise most of the year with our own Sukhoi which Horizon Hobby UK have allowed me to fly for them over the last few seasons, so a big thanks to John and the UK team for this. It shouldn’t take us too long to dial into Mike’s model as our setup’s are more or less identical.
I would like to thank all my sponsor’s for their help this year, it really wouldn’t be possible without them.

I plan to do a daily blog update on this site, it’s a good way for me to document our adventure and hopefully you will enjoy reading it.
