Yea, I think Tripp is going to include the Polcat is the liberal definition of UM warbird.

They all seem to be comparable in speed.

I'm having a hard time deciding what I want to race... I love my UM Mosquito but I aldo have my modified F2G Corsair....

Decisions, Decisions.

UMX PoleCat is a sweet pylon racer, a few years back at KIEF a micro pylon race was awesome, I got a chance to race with Joe Malinchak and serveral great micro pilots. The rules where wingspan, motor/battery combo and the plane had to be a modeled after a real pylon race plane. Great Fun.

ULTRA-MICRO WARBIRD RACES

Ultra micro class airframe with stock setup.
Brushed motor
1s battery
Each pilot must have a caller who counts laps and cuts

5 aircraft launch at the signal of the event coordinator. Pilots will fly 10 laps around 2 pylons making left turns. First to complete 10 laps wins. The penalty for cutting a pylon is an extra lap.

Race times are:

Thursday 18.00

Friday 18.00

Saturday 18.00

These are the basic rules for the race.

Are all of these planes by Horizon? Are other micros allowed in? I think Great Planes and Hobby Lobby have some micros out there too.

Jay may know but I don't. He is traveling today. Maybe we can get a post from him tomorrow. How about input on this from other owners of micros from manufactures other than Horizon? How do those other micros compare to the horizon planes? Is speed and maneuverability close enough to be comparable and allow even, head to head racing? Lets hear from some folks who have Great Planes, Hobby Lobby and other micros. What plane do you have and how do you think it flys relative to any of the Horizon ones? Thanks!

I just spoke with Bill at HH he didnt know about the eRC planes but he did tell me the Flyzone micros would not stand a chance against the parkzone planes but its a micro warbird and if someone wanted to put one in the race I wouldnt stop them. Dave or Chris whats your take on this?
