F1C Rules ideas
From: Leo Reynders
I 'm considering to issue the following safety related rule changes.
1) Delete the 20 seconds rule for F1C (Sporting Code Section 4, 3.3.5.
In combination with Radio DT, the 20 s rule provokes unsafe flying. In order
to stay below the 20 s limit, competitors might be tempted to:
. postpone to the very last moment RDT on a rapidly descending model,
increasing the risk in case of malfunction or misjudgment
. shorten a bad but safe flight by RDT, possibly resulting in a
high-risk landing, too close to the starting line.
Dropping the 20 s rule will reward the competitors that fly reliable and
thus safer models and will stimulate the construction of such models.
2) New rule: The starting poles for F1C shall be at least 50 m
separated from the starting poles of other FF classes (often F1B)
For obvious safety reasons.
