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!
