A 450 would defiantly be hard to see. A few of us had a hard time seeing a 50 size machine . You figure you are standing in the middle of a 200 meter course so you are looking beyond the neighborhood of 125 maybe 150 meters as you turn around .

Maybe if we do it at night with lights, that should help see the little ones.

Got an idea,

The 1st Annual Smoking Owl Speed Runs

right after the IRCHA Golf Cart 500 (on the corn fields)<--not my idea

I once opened a little stand where I sold hot cakes. I didn't sell as many as you'd think.

You can't fly a turbine in any speed competition. AMA rules.

http://www.modelaircraft.org/files/510-a.pdf
21. Turbine powered aircraft will not be allowed in any speed or racing events.

https://rc.runryder.com/t677948p4/

and yes, AMA says no turbines, we beat that horse to dead last year.

I see what you mean now.
A picture gets posted with the words, "free helicopter" and it just can't drum enough interest!

Maybe someone needs a thread title, "free helicopter."
(I may just do that)

The neat thing is, you only got to do a clean run to qualify into the drawing.

So ALL THE PILOTS including the slowest have a chance at the grand prize.
