Important

This event is a BFPVRA British Championship Event.

  • All pilots have to attend a general safety briefing and sign the appropriate waivers from the race organiser and venue.
  • All pilots must demonstrate effective Fail-Safe procedures defined by the Safety Director. In most cases this is a “Power Down, no pulse” method, where the aircraft will immediately cease flight by stopping all motors and operation if it loses contact with the radio transmitter.
  • All pilots must have an “ARMING” position switch or sequence on their radio. The aircraft should not power up by any accidental controls from the radio. Aircraft arming may be executed by a specific switch on the radio, or by a sequence (e.g. yaw right) to actively arm the radio.
  • All pilots must demonstrate an airworthy airframe and pass a general mechanics and electronics test.
  • Pilots must use FPV to pilot aircraft. This can be with goggles or a ground station, LCD type display.
  • Pilots must not power up video transmitters unless they have the express permission of the Race Director e.g. they are about to take part in a race.
