NATS 2017 - The Results - FlyingGiants.com Coverage

This is the final installment of the Miss Ashley report on the 2017 Nats!

Splash

It has been a long week!

Ask anyone. Competition does that to a person. It's severe mental and, believe it or not, physical preparation. A quest of perfection. This week NATS took no prisoners. Between weather, lockouts, and just plain/plane bad luck - it was a brutal battle to the top.

Saturday began with an unknown, followed by back to back knowns, and ending with a final, new unknown. No scores were posted. Winds were low, tension was high.

The Freestyle portion is optional to pilots, but they must compete in the IMAC portion of the contest as a prerequisite. And then there were awards.

Sam flies a Dalton Extra ML with a DA-200L, and JR servos.

Kobe won first in Sportsman class at the 2016 NATS! Kobe flies a 105" AJ Laser 230Z with a DA-120 and MKS servos.

Evan flies a 3.1m JTec Giles 202 with a DA-200L and Futaba servos.

David flies a 126" Carden with a DA-200 and Spektrum servos and guidance.

Fiddy flies a PAU Extra 300 SP with a DA-120 and JR servos and guidance.

Check out first through third in each class below. Each of these guys also earned an automatic spot on the 2018 World's USA Team! Congratulations all you guys!

Thank you to all the pilots and families who support them! Thank you to all the volunteers, judges, scorekeepers, scribes, and anyone else raises a hand to help. Thank you to Doug Pilcher, IMAC, and the AMA! See you all again next year!
