Aero Telemetry built a museum quality 1/2 scale replica of the world famous Hughes H-1 Racer for celebrating the 75 year anniversary of the Academy of Model Aeronautics. Most importantly, the plane had to comply with the 125 lb weight limit. Completely re-designed by Joe's team and built almost entirely of carbon fiber in less than 5 months, the AMA 75th Anniversary Edition of The Aviator H-1 Racer weighed in at 122 lbs ready to fly.

Piloted by Greg Hahn, AMA Technical Director, the spectacular airplane flew 7 times and headlined the weekend celebration event held at AMA headquarters in Muncie, Indiana in July 2011.
