...was the first annual Scale over Ottawa fun scale competition.
Despite a huge storm rolling through the Ottawa area the day before, we were lucky with the weather. The wind however tried its best to shut us down, building through the day to reach 37kph by 2pm.
This didn't stop 18 registered pilots from participating in our boot-camp style competition where we walked all competitors through the process in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
First place went to Xavier Mouraux, second place to Elckar Monsalve and third place to Norm Belair. Highest points of the day went to Dave Penchuk & Brian Wattie.
Pierre Menard won a brand new DLE-30 gas engine supplied by Orleans Hobbies. A Great Hobbies gift card was drawn & many t-shirts given away as supplied by RCFlightdeck.
Lots of flights, many great aircraft and equally great people made for an excellent day. Huge thanks to the many volunteers, our sponsors Great Hobbies, Orleans Hobbies, Model Sounds & Superior Metal Center, the Stetson club executive, pilots and spectators.
