IClaudius - no official statement has been received.
When looking at the functional diagram of the Millswood device we thought that RC would override any termination command. When looking at the circuit diagram, we discovered the truth of this is purely a function of the software, and we understand some contestants requested software changes with their purchase.
Since the most likely time we are likely to discover lack of comms coincident with faulty GPS cover is just after takeoff, we questioned the wisdom of crashing the aircraft while in the vicinity of the contestants and judges. However, considering D1 is a go/no go decision, and in the light of no official comment, deciding to not follow the strict interpretation of the rules might be courageous.
