That looks like a good candidate for hosting a Western National. If we ever have a traveling National.

My rebuild is for having a back plane and a test bed for breaking in my new DA 120 engine
Mine was on a 40% pilot that I was 3Ding. Who knew they didn't like to do blenders? That same plane also got really wet when it flew in the freestyle at IMAC Worlds. I have the identical plane in the trailer just need to finalize a deal with Grant and move some equipment over.

Just curious about what you guys have brewing for next years IMAC machine?
Personally, Iím finishing up a AJ 123 Laser with a DA 200 on cans. That will be my primary machine for 2019.
My H9 Sukhoi will be my backup with the ZDZ 180 on cans as well.
I broke the fuse on my original Sukhoi on a really windy landing while competing against myself....argg!
Iíve got all the parts and now I need a little shop time to get it ready for 2019.

My work hasnít been real IMAC friendly over the last few years however.... Iím now finishing up a course at work and should have a ďRock StarĒschedule for next summer!

I also have a Jtec MX2 on my work bench that will have a 200 in it as well.
Not sure if that will fly next year... Time will tell.
My concern is how many of you are putting together Clarkís latest PNW IMAC slaying machine... That has got my attention!

Itís now December and the snow is happening here in Alberta.
I hope all of the NW region gang and of course their families have a great Christmas and holiday season.

2019 IMAC knowns are out now... they look really good!
Time to get ourselves focused and start preparing for 2019.

We have some new names popping up in the NW... Also a guy in Edmonton now that I would imagine will get some things happening up there.. Lots of guys flying giant scale in and around Edmonton and not involved in IMAC!
We are on it!

Also Dennis P just outside of Grande Prairie... he is talking about hosting a event... Iím in!

2019 should be a great year!
Let us know whatís on the work table and include some pics!

For basic right now we have Rick K putting on IMac clinics for newbies.. weíve got some promising guys getting involved.

For Sportsman and intermediate there have being lots of movement upward and now creating a whole new competitive group in those divisions .

Iím super curious as to what Clarke has up his sleeve.. Cooper... Crown line.... Trumpetman... Bullen... Burgad... Piorun...... those guys too!
This is just a few of the advanced guys... Letís hear it!

Unlimited... well you guys are on top of your game... so inspirational for the rest of us.. I know of at least 3 names that will be joining your ranks in the next few years.

From Basic to Unlimited,
Iíd like to have you share with us whatís coming to the 2019 events!

Ps.. right on the mark Steve
I've just about got the new PNW ready to go. Been sidetracked lately but that's a whole different topic. This one has a lower wing, the version 2 wing, and a tunnel to better incorporate the JTEC tuned pipes. FWIW Michael's PNW that I flew at worlds is hands down the best plane I have ever flown. Haven't figured out what the differences are but that is one amazing plane.

The PNW kit is the work of Clark Hymas and has been evolving for a few years now and turning out to be a great flying and easy to build plane. I just throw out silly ideas and all of a sudden Clark comes up with an amazing aircraft. Pacific North West (PNW) just makes sense.

Hey, thanks for the response. I would love to see pics but I am assuming this is a IMAC home grown design. Probably even some room for more of them out there now that Dennis from Carden has retired and is only selling components....no kits.

Micheal, you've had alot of input with Clark in to this PNW aircraft .
From cutting wings and maybe using different airfoils to helping guys with building wings and tail sections for this PNW.
You for got to mention your an excellent pilot and caller as well .


Here's a few photos
