WICHITA SPORTSMAN RACING

Sportsman is ‘‘spec racing”. It is based on a plane that is a fun everyday sport plane
that you will enjoy flying anytime at the field.

The modifications are limited therefore the racing is very competitive.

Sportsman racing, unlike other pylon racing that is so fast
that you can’t follow it after a few laps,
is based on a sport airplane with .46 engine.

Since the airframe and power plant is the same for all the pilots, races are decided
with piloting skills, not hardware alone.

Speeds are relatively mild, less than 100 MPH, therefore managing your flight lines
is easier, creating exciting competition.

The cost to get in the air is somewhat reasonable since the only ARF plane allowed
is around $100 and a .46 engine is also very reasonable.

The plane is a very good all around sport flyer; so that the initial investment
can be used in many ways besides pylon racing.

Sportsman is an easy way in which to participate in racing. A modeler can buy the
ARF on Monday and race on Wednesday.

Anyone who can assemble an ARF can build the Sportsman model;
no special equipment is needed.

Any standard radio will do but dual rates and exponential makes it easier to
setup an airplane for racing.

So come and join us=========It will be exciting!

And you’ll never know=======You could be the next ace!
