Flight Technologies and IMAC


How will new technologies like gyro's, flight stabilization, and fly-by-wire controls affect IMAC?

Is stabilization technology allowable in competition?

FPV technology like the RVOSD provide the option for fly-by-wire controls and really smoothes out one's flying. Systems like AS3X also provide tremendous stabilization capability as well.

Are there any rules in place to prevent pilots from using this in competition?
Have there been any previous events where pilots used this tech?

I am curious how this technology will shape future events.

i think that the only help you can use is mixs on the radio all other aids are illegal and cant be used i think you can mount a camera on the plane but only for taking footage of the flight

You are pretty much correct.

I did some asking around on flying giants and there was some useful info: http://www.flyinggiants.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=79867

None of it is allowed. So its not going to affect pattern or IMAC.

We'll see who gets busted first with the AR635.

Wow will that be embarrasing.
