VGMC introduces Multi-Engine Profile Scale event!
Along with the annual Nearly 1/2-A Fun Stunt event in 2015, the Vancouver Gas Model Club will present a competition that is the VGMC's version of an even that started in Arizona a few years ago and has expanded to the annual Brodak Fly-In. The VGMC has smiplified the rules a little bit for the first year, with the possibility of adding a more complex version in a year or two. The basic rules are that the contest allows no single-engine models, and no full-fusleage models. Click here for the complete rules. You can also e-mail the VGMC if you have questions.
