The main competitions held are the Scale Indoor Nationals (usually held in April at Nottingham University) and Scale Radio Control, Scale Free Flight and Scale Control Line Nationals held at Barkston Heath, Nr. Grantham in August. Other competitions for Radio Control models are held at various locations in the North, Midlands and the South enabling most flyers to attend at least one without travelling too far.

The BMFA send teams to represent the United Kingdom at World and European Championships. Teams for International Scale Championships ( F4C & F4H) are selected using the scores from competitions held at various English & Scottish locations together with a dedicated 'Team Trials' event held at the end of the season; usually in September.
