Micro Warbird Pylon Racing at HHAEFI-V7


OK OK NEW EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT #1:

Micro Warbird Races: We are going to set up a couple of pylons and have those who want to compete race 10 laps around the course. Our initial thinking is that most of the micro warbirds are pretty close in speed and we will race them head to head. We will see how many want to race, set up heats and work our way to a champion. If we find that one particular type of micro is truly faster than others we may make that type of plane a separate class. The idea is to race stock planes. We aren’t going to check prop pitch but the motors and batteries need to be original equipment. Since this is new to us (and it’s HHAEFI) we reserve the right to modify the rules up until 2 hours after the trophies have been given out.

Here was out first test.
Micro pylon race. (1 min 27 sec)

I'm in! It was a blast when we tried it out for that video. Very exciting and a couple of interesting "tap and go" moments.

Was that the time the wings got locked together and you flew in tandem a while?

Yea, Jay and I locked up or what seemed like an hour. It looked cool and getting to fly away with no damage was even cooler.

I need to start getting an idea of everyone that will be flying in the UM warbird races. We have decided on one plane per pilot if you crash that plane and have another you can use that. Also if anyone is interested we are looking at having a couple of micro jet races which will be the UM Mig or the Great Planes UM F86.Just post your names in this thread if you plan on entering any of these.

If G's T-28 wasn't messed up I'd be in but the motor's worn out so I guess I'll be watching (and ducking) on this one.
