  • All pilots must use the approved video transmitters found in our Rules and Regulations section.

Two Course Format

In order to accommodate a large number of pilots we have designed two world class courses that are within 500yards (approx 500 meters) of each other. Pilots will be divided into two groups and given two days to practice and qualify on both courses. The pilot’s best time from each course will be combined and counted towards their overall qualifier ranking into the Semi Finals.
