I was suggesting a level playing field

If its level its not unlimited

My interest is to see what creations develop without restrictions.

If your looking for optimum airframes with a given power system that is another story

You have 'unleashed the Hounds ' ..... I hope there are fields that can handle these long runs at WOT, our club is tight , we have to avoid the soccer fields and then dive in to avoid 'dog park' air space . Eric at our club is turning 209MPH , but has some issues as he has to climb power off until the speed has bled off .

I misunderstood

Your looking for a level flying field - that is large enough to fly your toy airplane.

Please consider safety - It sounds like your pushing it if your flying 209 mph near the soccer field and doggie park.

I'd say ASAP, too!

Post the rules as far as we've got them worked out, and we can do any discussion about tweaking them in here.
We may have to take a vote on the single vs. twin rule. It seems pretty evenly split based on discussion.

That jet sounded great, Apex! Not easy to get a doppler on.
What size was it?
