RotorcrossNZ Championship round - FPV MiniQuad Racing Series - Battle on the Bog

First Person View Racing – SPEC and Open class multirotors as per RotorcrossNZ rules

Course will be an open and flowing GP Style, suitable for Intermediate to Advanced pilots

If you have never raced FPV before, and would like to try flying the track, then enter in the Novice class, you will get 4 of 4 minute sessions, with no points scored.

When buying your ticket, select Novice , Spec or Open class, and select the video transmitter in use "BOS", "IRC" or "32".

BOS is for the generic chinese brands, IRC is the ImmersionRC/FatShark, "32" is for the 32 channel transmitters. This is very important as we use the information to set up the heats.

You can enter more than one class. If you are entering Spec or Open, do not also enter Novice as we only have 5 positions available

Location: Hamilton MAC 231 Collins Road, Melville.
Heading south out of Hamilton on Ohaupo Road (SH 3), turn right onto Collins Road at the traffic lights, opposite the Urlich Ave Shopping Centre. The access track to the field is located 2.3 km west along Collins road, not long after passing over the railway lines. Look for Fonterra Dairy # 73442 and the Model Aircraft sign on your left side next to a long private acccessway (a tanker track). Take this metal track straight for 1 km south and you will find the flying field on the right hand side. Please drive slowly (no faster than 35 km/h). Park on the sides of the track or in the parking area immediately adjoining the Pits.
