Unfortunately, they do not fit any AMA rules class this year. They would be most directly applicable to P18, but even this year's monoplanes will not fit that class.

However, if you are looking to go to an AMA contest, contact the Contest Director (CD) and ask them to add a "Science Olympiad" class! Most contests are somewhat informal, and they will want to do whatever they can to encourage youth participation. Get them to add it early, and then get the word out, including here.

And consider building a P18. They are simple to build, fly better than SO, and are a recognized class.

Thank you for introducing me to the P18 class, and I am now seriously considering doing some competitions in that class over the summer. I can't seem to find any rules or dimensions for the planes themselves. I know you and your students are experienced in AMA, and is there anyway you can link where to find information on these competitions?

Here is the rulebook for all AMA events (includes FAI events): https://www.modelaircraft.org/sites/def ... 7-2018.pdf

Note that some events build on others, so be sure to read the general rules.

I would recommend the Ikara 6" prop since it is substantially lighter than most molded props. It is however, more fragile, so have a few of them on hand.
