Display Contest

NVRC Annual Bob Scott Memorial Display Contest

The annual NVRC spring Display Contest is named in memory of our own Bob Scott.

The following criteria apply.

Invitation: any aircraft that previously won in any category of a previous NVRC Display or Building Contest is invited to be presented for display only at the contest. Prior winners cannot compete a second time. You are invited but not required to display your trophy, and an information sheet with your aircraft.

Prior Year’s Entry: any aircraft previously entered in a NVRC Building contest can be entered if it has not won one of the competition’s categories.

Category Information

The categories are as follows,

  • ‘Copters
  • Scratch/Kit Built
  • Giant (IMAA legal) for both Sport and Scale
  • Standard for both Sport and Scale
  • Electric “Park Flyer”
  • Under Construction

Models built by Junior’s may be entered in any of the above categories. Junior entries are eligible for both category and the Junior award. Planes entered by Juniors must be identified as such.

‘Copter is open to any and all rotary winged aircraft, including autogyros.

Scratch/Kit Built from Plans means just that. Whether you designed and/or cut it, or someone else did. The materials come separately and you assemble the model. It is recommended you have the plans available.

Electric “Park Flyer” is any electric powered aircraft weighing less than 32 oz. ready to fly.

All entries must be RC. ARF’s are acceptable except in the Scratch/Kit Built or under construction catagories. They must be owned and assembled (if req’d.) by NVRC members in good standing.

Entry Format

More than one builder per entry and more than one entry per builder is permitted.

It is recommended that you prepare an information sheet to be displayed with your model. It should indicate the name of the plane, size, weight, finish, radio, name of builder and Junior if applicable.

It is preferable that models be complete and ready to fly but unfinished models that the builder feels warrants attention may be entered (final determination of completeness for eligibility is at the discretion of the CD, if not sufficiently complete they may be entered in the “Under Construction” category).


There will be certificates to 2nd place in the above categories. In addition, there will be special awards for: Best Junior, and Best of Show (Bob Scott Award).

The Best of Show award is now known as the BOB SCOTT BEST OF SHOW AWARD, with the winner’s name engraved on it, and will be held at Hobby Hanger until next year’s contest. In addition, the recipient keeps a silver bowl which is similar to the one on the trophy.

Winners will be determined by popular vote of the membership. All voting is subjective and there are no judging rules. Ballots will be provided. Any decisions concerning category determination or rules interpretations will be the responsibility of the CD. The CD’s decision will be final.

Bring the Family!

The Building/Display contest is one of our best attended events. Since you can enter just about anything you have, let’s keep having a big turn out!

Whether you have an entry or not be sure and come and bring the family, especially the kids – and we really love having a Junior trophy winner!
