We would like to announce a new "provisional" class to be held during the 2010 US Nationals. With the increased interest in flybarless systems we have created new Class I Unlimited, Class II Unlimited, and Class III Unlimited classes that will run conjunctively with the regular classes. The term "Unlimited" refers to the use of flybarless systems only, all previous equipment regulations remain effective.
Pilots will fly the same Class I-III maneuvers alongside the regular class competitors and will be judged according to the same judging criteria. The only difference is that the Unlimited Class competitors will only be judged against other Unlimited Class competitors. Regular Class competitors will be judged against each other as has occured in the past.
We are currently examining the flybarless systems to determine if there should be a list of approved systems. We tentatively feel all flybarless systems should be allowed, but we are taking a look in the name of due diligence.
