Default RVs to dominate aerobatic contest!

Five RV pilots will compete at the 2016 Snowbird Classic Aerobatic Contest at Dunnellon, Florida (X35) Friday, March 18 to Sunday, March 20 2016. Two will compete in the Primary category and three of us in Sportsman. This is the largest turnout of RVs ever at a regular IAC aerobatic contest. Several years ago there was a contest in Texas that devised an aerobatic program just for RVs but we have since proven that RVs can compete and win at regular sanctioned IAC events.

Competition flights at Donnellon will be held on Friday and Saturday. Sunday is a rain day. Come out and root for your fellow RV pilots and learn how you can become a part of this challenging and fun sport.

Might just try and hop up for a day or two to cheer you guys on. Camping is available for those who may want to watch the show more than one day.
Jesse, warm up the "head".

We look forward to having a bunch more RV's on the field. We can fit quite a few campers on our property and have a couple of cars available for hotel and/or restaurant runs. Probably won't have hangar space as the competing planes will be using up all our extra space.

We may fire up the grill like we did last year, although there will be a grill truck here for the competition, so that's still in the air.

Anybody who want to just watch, please feel free to come hang out at the ITEC hangar with us.

Thumbs up Practicing before the contest

Ron and I with six others were at Vidalia, GA this weekend practicing and being critiqued by judges that fly at the Advanced level. Here's a picture of the prettiest airplanes there. You won't believe what Ron can do with his RV-8. Ron's is on the left:

Default Cap 20

The CAP 20's that I have seen do not have a spring gear. Oleo gear that mounts on the wing spar. Also the canopy and tail are different.
Years ago there were single and two seat airplanes built in Georgia or N Florida. Available in kit form but very few built. Acro something. That is what I think is the airplane in the picture. I have only ever seen the prototype single seater and one two place example.

Default DR 109, DR 107 or a Cap 231

If I have to pick one I would guess the DR 109 as the canopy is not quite right for a 107 or the CAP231.

Most Panzels have a longer cowl for a 540.
