Hey Will,
You're right, if we're leaving time for motors to cool down, that would allow a battery change... but we're thinking that it would be more efficient to fly two races back to back, then switch pilots/callers/flaggers as needed. The KAN's and HE cells will do well over 25 laps without breaking a sweat, so this starts to look good. It could take easily 5 minutes for 3 pilots to change batteries, and 5 minutes is enough time to fly a whole race.

So, this is why we're talking about it... to see what people think. Personally, I like the idea because I think it will keep things moving quickly... which is good for all parties concerned (especially the non-racers who have to quit flying so we can race).

Any other thoughts?
