I prefer the horn so that eyes can stay focused on the high reving heli on the ground. I think it is safest, since there is nothing/no one to get hit with a bad launch.

You can race the 450 in the bracket class. Juts hope you can see it at the 100m mark!

Air Horn
Yup, Air horn is the way to go.

One year we did a count down –
3
2
1
GO

It did not work out well at all.
Lots of complaints.
Plus as Jeff mentioned, you can pay full attention to your heli on the line.

For the 450’s a length of about 30 meters is much better than the 100 M course.

A 450 @ 100M is tough to see!!

See you at the races,

Nothing fancy,
An old zero G raptor 50, on 10cells, I think. Castle HV controller, etc

The magic here is how well the heli tracks foward at speed, and Ken's ability of launching low and consistently.

Ok;
Well, were talking about coming next year. However, IRCHA is a lttle intimidating since I personally have never been to a competition with over about 100-120 pilots. Krause told us something like 900 pilots there! But it would be alot of fun.

I would like to get in the drag races , are there rules listed somewhere abroad ?

If you're not living on the edge you're just taking up space !
