Good luck to everyone at the races!

cdrom motor

is any one using a cd rom motor on a micro racer on a 1000 mah 2 cell???
I am trying to come up with a wind that will work with a 2 cell for the race may 6,7 at san deigo. I have a wattage hawk that originally had a 380 brushed motor. I am flying a gb 8 turn motor right now and will try a 5 turn with a 5.5 x4.5apc prop.

Davexxxx,

I think there will be a bit of everything at this race. Being the first ever event of its kind, there will likely be diversity in the airframes and the power systems.

The Hyperion Velocity 25C is probably the best bet, it is heavy compared to the TP but has a higer discharge rating:

Nice 2.2 minute flight. Wonder how long that cell would last punishing it at 25C continuous?

Sounds like pure fun though!!!

12 pilot limit for MWE (demo) Micro Pylon Race

Oh Man, MWE and the first ever Micro Pylon race is less than a week away....I can't wait! It is important to remember though that this is a demo race. Unfortunately this entire race must be completed in our 15-20 minutes time slot on Saturday. Due to this time constraint there can only be a total of 4 heats, 3 first round heats, and one final. The final race will include the 3 winning first round pilots.

Taking into account the reduced number of heats, the number of pilots must also be limited. After talking to several individuals, it has been decided that this demo race needs to be limited to a maximum of 12 pilots. This is based on the input that no more than 4 planes can safely be flown on the small speed 400 course at any one time.

This formality does not currently seem to be a problem though. Only 5 pilots have currently signed up on the frequency list. For fairness sake, the frequency list for this thread will now also serve as an official sign-up list for the first 12 pilots to register. Registration for this race will be cutoff at that point. If you would like to participate but have not reserved your frequency, please reserve your spot and frequency ASAP. There is still room for 7 more pilots. Looking forward to a weekend of great electric flying and clear skies .
