New to the FAC? New to the Rule Book? Here's a couple of tips to help you sort it out.... First, familiarize yourself with the "Primary Rules", page 4. These rules apply to ALL CLASSES of FAC models. Next, figure out what class of model you're interested in. There are currently seven to choose from. Focus on understanding the rules for that class. Some are more complicated than others.
  • FAC Scale
  • Total of Three Flight Scale
  • Total of Three Flight Non Scale
  • Simplified Scale
  • Dime Scale
  • Miscellaneous Timed Events
  • Mass Launch Events
Follow the rules, and you'll be off and...flying! If you have questions, click here to contact Dave Mitchell, Keeper of the Rules

We will have a NEW event at the FAC Non Nats this year: Scale High-Start Glider. This is an "unofficial" event, i.e. it isn't in the official FAC Rule Book, but it will qualify for a Kanone nonetheless. Check out the provisional rules here:
