Premiere F5J Contest is Coming Up Soon

Get yourself ready for the 5th annual F5J in the Desert event. This contest will be held on a fabulous turf farm in Stanfield, Arizona on December 7th and 8th. It's actually the first event on the 2020 USA F5J Tour season and you won't want to miss out.

The cost is going to be $60 for the two day event and that includes lunches on both days. You can sign up and pay on the F3XVault website. Registration is closing on December 4th so make sure you get signed up as soon as possible.

Contest Details

"We will be adhering to standard F5J rules with the following modifications: you may use an Altis V4 or similar controller capable of logging F5J height and terminating motor run time a maximum of 30-seconds after throttle on. You will be permitted to run Altis F5J firmware (does NOT allow motor restart) or run the standard Altis firmware in F5J mode (does allow motor restart). You must use standard firmware settings that mark the F5J launch height as "---" if a motor restart is detected.

All F5J launch heights must be verified on the Altis screen by the timer at the conclusion of each flight. F5J launch heights displaying "---" will receive a zero flight score, so ensure your Altis controllers are setup and tested before the event. There are some cases where valid flights will display an Altis "---". If this happens we will allow verification of motor shutoff height using the Altis flight logs. This must be verified by someone at the scoring tent."
