Hey Troy,
It's my understanding that the races will be on the 8th this month, since some of the "heavies" are out of town this weekend.

see you!

Hey KK,


Forget the rules, you've got to get that plane of yours to the first pylon in one piece. Hope the repair is going well.

Don't be nervous. It hinders your ability to fly the plane.

Instead, just be careful and have fun!

What time are you going to fly on Friday? Perhaps I could meet you there and launch for you. BTW, 7 cell max for club pylon racing in SD.

David is correct. The races for February are on the eighth. We are changing pylon racing to the second Saturday of the month because one of the racers has a conflict on the first saturday. At first we were only going to change it for February because of the people being out of town.

There will be no pylon racing on Saturday at MWE there will be speed 400 pylon racing about 2:30 on Sunday. It will be more as a demo, we may only have one round unless the croud thins out alot in the afternoon.

Do you guys want to mandate 6.0V motors. Doug was suprised to see 4.8Vs and there has never been a rule on it.
I don't care either way.

S400 Races


I don't care wht S400 is used & think David Fee's rules are clear on that,

7 Cells vs 8 cells????

Until the Hecells and Kan cells came out we were going to let 8 600AE packs. I think we should try the 600 vs the HE & Kans & see if they're OK to run together.

What say you other racers??

As far as I'm concerned, the rule has always been "Any S400 motor... you know what we mean." As for the cell count, we're still at 7.

So we have:

Motor: Any S400 motor (2.3mm shaft, blah blah blah...)
Battery: 7 cells max, any cell type.
Airplane: Any model* (no special restrictions).
Task: 10 laps around the AMA 1/2A course.

*All models should have a switch installed in order to qualify for race-readiness. (This is because we carry all models out to the course at once and models must sit ready to fly while other heats are flown.)

As far as changing rules and/or categories for the new cells... I think it may just be a matter of time before the new cells take over and it becomes a non-issue. I'm willing to fly all cell types together for now... this is all for fun, after all.

see you at the races...

W Cole,

http://www.flydma.com has the switches although they are not listed on his web site. Give Steve a call and order them.
