Request for new class of electric outdoor free flight scale competition.

The Committee have considered the request and have decided to introduce a provisional class for these models to be held at the next Nationals to gauge the level of interest for these models. The rules for competition will be run to the existing F4A rules with the following amendment.
6.4.1b The electric motor shall have a limit of 400 watts and where the models power supply is over 110mAh. a safety device to cut power to the motor is to be incorporated to prevent overloading of the battery in the event that the motor is stalled.
