Team Futaba soaring pilot Darwin Barrie flew to third place finishes in both 2-meter and Unlimited classes at the National Aeromodeling Championships last week in Muncie IN. Darwin uses the Futaba 18MZ to handle the complicated flight programming required by modern sailplanes.
The National Aeromodeling Championships are held annually at the AMA's International Aeromodeling Center in Muncie, IN. Thermal Duration Soaring requires precision in both flight time and spot landing.
Futaba and Hobbico congratulate Darwin and all other Futaba pilots that competed in this year's Soaring National Championships!
