Yup standard FAI course, should allow for a wide variety of entries, and could be very fast for "e-slow" :mrgreen:

Mr Spruce is starting to get worried :| that a Avonick is going to be used in the sport class...tehe :mrgreen:

But then again...you need to really twiddle your thumbs to fly like Harris :twisted:

I think BH mite be rite about the N.Z Sport pylon class being the most popular and competitive class to enter.Theres only x4 people in N.Z. with fully moulded F5D racers....
Craig (me)-Swist
Chris-Avionick
Brad-Avionick
John-Summit
And it only takes one bad crash (which will happen,sooner or l8r) and its anutha 1000 bucks for anutha airframe!! :o
Its hard enough to get the pylon scene going, let alone having to spend that kind of $ that the average joe blogg just doesn't have...
Hmmm....Swist may be used as a speeder and I may just do N.Z Sport with something abit cheaper...hmmm

Yehp it will be the most popular, it wont be the most competitive though. F5D is massively competitive as everyone has the same power to play with due to the limiter. Airframe rules are also much tighter than the sport class we have laid out.

The sports class will be/is great fun however and allows for a much wider range of power plants to be legal. Im flying with far less power than old man spruce in the sports class for instance, but the wasp I was using was slipperier than his wooden thing. The only difference in times between me and him were flying skills! The same power system I was using in the wasp, which is around 400W on a 16/25/2 3S 1800 Graupner 5.2x5.2, is whats now in the sports class avionik. The limits for the sports class are 666W ;)

Having 3 people ready to go and race F5D is 3 more than we had 6 mths ago, and we havent even had a proper F5D race yet :mrgreen: None of us are at the skill level to be able to fly 60 second laps yet anyway :D

Avioniks from the manufacturer is Russia are 350 euro, thats $593NZ. Good value for the F5D model thats won the WC for the last 7 years straight :ugeek:
