 Combat Event

Rules:

 

Electric
aircraft only; must have a ready to fly weight of 16oz or less (including
battery). .


Battery pack
maximum size: 1000 mah.  The winning
plane will be weighed and inspected for battery size.


Mass launch (1 heat)!


The event will
be monitored to insure maximum engagement opportunity. Hiding at the ceiling or off to the side to avoid the fight will not be permitted.

From launch, the pilot MUST listen to the CD for throttle and proximity instructions. The"flight monitors" will be watching for your throttle position as well as whether you "engage" (attempts to fight) the battle. If either of these is not observed, then the pilot will be asked to land.  If the airplane touches the ground at any point during the match, this is grounds for immediate disqualification.

If the airplane survives a mid-air and is "controllable", it will be allowed to continue. If it is deemed "unsafe", you will be asked to land immediately.

 

No leading edgecutting devices will be permitted for safety reasons.

Pilots will be required to maintain full control of their aircraft at all times within the combat event area.


3D freestyle - “The Cube”:

The cube is a 60’ area to perform in, with or without music.

Contestants are required to perform 10 consecutive & different freestyle maneuvers in the box, within a 90 second time limit.  You will start with 100 points. There  will be a 10 point penalty if the model goes outside the boundaries, touches the ground, or fails to reach 10 maneuvers in the allotted time.

Four judges will monitor all four sides.  The pilot with the most points wins a prize!
