New Race scheduling idea...

Hey threre SD racers,

We want to maximize the amount of racing we can do and minimize the impact on the sport fliers at the field on race days. The idea we've been tossing around goes as follows:

Each pilot carries his airplane and two charged batteries out to the course. We would fly two 10-lap races per battery pack, so each pilot would get to fly in 4 heats. We could rotate pilots in the heats so that motors and batteries could cool down a little, but it might be faster to just fly two heats back to back, then let the motor cool, change battery... etc.

We'd really like to try this, as it should be able to double the races we get, without annoying the neighbors too much. It might effectively dictate that KAN or HE cells be used, as 600AE's might not quite give 20 laps + reserve...

Any thoughts or ideas?

-David
