The first maneuver after takeoff is ten level laps. There must be at least two (2) laps after takeoff before Level Flight maneuver is started, except for 1/2A scale which has one (1) lap. The quality of Level Flight should affect the score for Realism in Flight. The model should be flown as level as possible. If model touches ground during the ten laps this maneuver is terminated and number of full laps flown determines the score. Other options that involve level flight many not be performed during Level Flight.
