Proposed Change to FAI FF rules


B.17. Processing of Model Aircraft France

Modify paragraph B.17.8.

Note: if the proposal is adopted, it will be necessary to do the corresponding

< >changes on the annex B.1.b.

B.1.8. Except for Free Flight Indoor and Scale, each model shall carry FAI model

sticker(s) with mention of the FAI license number, national identification mark,

competitor name and model identification code (letters and/or numbers) The letters and numbers on the FAI model sticker must be at least 10 mm high and clearly visible. A FAI model ticker will be put on each part of the model aircraft so that the individual parts (wing(s), tail, front and rear fuselage if detachable) may be separately identified. The model identification code must be also recorded on the model FAI specification certificate and on the score card of the nominated models.

Reason: Clarification of the way to mark the model with FAI model sticker.

Regarding Indoor exception, limitation to Free Flight Indoor classes (and not Radio


Editorial Note  The consenus of a  discussion on this subject on FB was that this was overly onerous requring a FAI sticker with quite large lettering on all components. It is hard   to put this on smaller parts like a stab and F1B rear fuselage.  Note that currently only one full label is required  on the model and part/model numbers on each separate component.  The reason for doing this appears overly general and vague. may be there is a problem , if so it is not clear.
