Radio-controlled scale model aircraft replicas of full-sized aircraft from World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam war and modern planes can be seen in action this weekend at the Woodland Davis Aeromodelers Club field.
The event, which runs from Thursday through Sunday, features more than 60 pilots and model builders who have qualified via regional qualifiers across the United States to compete as some of the best of the best in the hobby/sport of radio-control model aircraft.
The flying field is on County Road 29, 1.3 miles east of County Road, northeast of Davis. For details and a map, visit www.wdarc.org.
This is the 34th edition of the U.S. Scale Masters Championships. Visitors will see vintage WWI models; golden-age racers; WWII fighters, bombers and trainers; jets, and modern civilian aircraft.
All aircraft are judged on the ground Thursday for their accuracy to photos and documentation of the full-size subject aircraft. Pilots will then move on to flying rounds of competition Friday through Sunday, in which they will perform required maneuvers with their aircraft and also perform optional maneuvers that highlight the specific history and capabilities of their aircraft.
Spectators are welcome. Entry is free and donations for parking will be accepted with gratitude. Food and beverages will be for sale all weekend.
