Nats Tropies
Although we commonly talk about R/C events, it is not usual to refer to Control-Line as C/L or Free Flight as F/F.

FAI is the abbreviation for Federation Aeronautique Internationale - watch out for confusion with F1A (F one A) an individual Free Flight class.

Macdonald Memorial Trophy

As originally envisaged, the Macdonald Memorial Trophy was to mark ‘Outstanding achievement in, or contribution to, aeromodelling in New Zealand in any one year’ Not awarded lightly, it is not necessarily presented each year. Persons worthy of the Award have been sought periodically through outlets such as NZ Newsletters and Nationals Programmes. The trophy was first awarded in 1954 and has continued to occupy a major role in the Association’s affairs to the present day, although the history of its presentation shows a period from 1960 to 1987 during which few names came forward. In recent years there have been a number of worthy recipients.
