Contesting is a big part of R/C soaring. It’s been around for as long as the hobby has, and serves to hone skills as well as being a heckuva lot of fun!

The LASS crew hosts club contests throughout the year, as well as hosting regional contests that draw the top pilots from the Eastern United States.
