Randy,

We're going to fly them at Daniel's clinic in H'ville the end of the month. If all looks good, I would suppose that Gordie will submit them, but I will NOT make that a definitive comment. It's his submission to do with as he sees best.

Was wondering the same yesterday as I mindlessly power-washed the garage!

To all that are following the thread:

Keep in mind that is up to the CDs of all the individual contests to adopt the new schedules including the (I call it provisional for now) novice schedule.

I think I speak for all the guys in the HPAC (OH, IN MI KY) that we will fly the new schedules this year. Is up to the gods and AMA to say Yea, Verily, Verily, is official and used at the Nats.

If it isn't approved for use at the NATS for next year then I don't think the local/regional contests should use the new rules. When one goes to the contests it usually is an opportunity to be critiqued in preparation for the NATS so it would be a waste of time to fly a routine that was not preparing you for the NATS

I'm not the CD of this next event in Huntsville, AL but I'll be holding the annual Music City Championships next year.

We will only fly the new schedule of maneuvers if (and only if) it is being flown at the US Nationals.

The Huntsville event "Funtest" is more of an opportunity for all of us to help one another out in the competition arena. If you are planning to attend the Huntsville event (and want to fly the current maneuvers), contact Daniel Hiatt (CD) and see what his thoughts are.

There are advantages to trying out these new maneuvers to fine tune them (pilots as well as judges perspective) before we begin the formal 2011 contest calender.

So...
Has anyone contact their Contest Board Member and told them what they want,
what they really-really want?

I agree 100% and will do the same for the Wooster, OH contest next year. For the novice class, we will continue to offer Class I Hovering Only.

Or run the new maneuvers at the local events and the hell with the Nats.
If we the majority of pilots want change then change we should get.
And it is time for change, and if AMA doesn't see the need to accommodate the majority of pilots in the AMA classes then I say let them (the AMA) have their Nats the way they want.

Hey that got me to stick my head out my rock!

That IS what I meant. Ask the guys 1st, and fly what they prefered. From the conversations I had, most if not all, prefer the new schedule.

We can always have our Nats tunning practice like we did last year in Muncie and Dayton and practice whatever AMA dictates for the Nats (IF WE CARE) lol

crawling back under my rock...

Chago,

I'm curious. When you crawl under that rock, does it move around and or are you little enough to fit with room to spare ?

Ben,

Get with the times, my rock has high vaulted ceilings, is fully furnished, has a staffed kitchen, and state of the art RC shop. You still have to crawl under to get in... just like Patrick Star

You ever watch SpongeBob SquarePants?

Just to make sure I am reading the correct one, has there been any updates or changes from what you originally wrote?

need clarification
8. 180 Autorotation
Model flies at a minimum altitude of twenty (20) meters with a speed less than required for stationary flight. The engine must be stopped before the model crosses the midline and begins a 180 ...
I am comfused with the term "speed less than required for stationary flight". Does not stationary means static, not moving?
I'm comfused...
Did you meant transitionary speed?
