    Ok. Painting will be a hassle, but otherwise I don't see why it would be too hard. Oh, I'll be doing an Edge 540 instead, by the way.

    Just to be clear, that aircraft will be okay for the Exhibition race, but to qualify for the other races it must be one of the designs from the build contest. ( see rules on first post.)

    Glad you are going to join the fun!

    Couple of questions.

    (1) Do we know which day the event will take place at FF West? Just trying to figure logistics to ensure DamoRC Jnr can be there to spot or, better yet, fly!

    (2) This one may seem dumb (apologies in advance) but do we need to follow the plans and builds provided by each designer for their plane? I love all of them but I'm not sure I can match the build techniques in all of them.

    Thanks in advance

    Good day at the field = coming home because you ran out of batteries.
    Bad day at the field = coming home because you ran out of planes.
    Really bad day at the field = Last 10 seconds of this video

    Hi.
    (1) I am working on the day(s), times of the events with FT. I will post the official times when we get it nailed down. Sould have those soon.

    (2) As long as it looks similar to one of the builds, I'm Okay with it. There are a couple of them that are easier builds then others. I would definitely not recommend the Super Solution this close to FF West.

    Thanks and understood. As you said, Super Solution is not an option in a month. I watched some of the build video last night. Wow! What a build.

    Can I participate in the exhibition race if I didn't take part in the design off?

    A couple of updates

    1) For the Bixler Trophy race, the Pace Plane will be the FT racer, otherwise known as Ripslinger.

    For those that don't know, the FT racer is on the left.

    2). The Fite Fest West schedule now has the times of the events listed. The Static display will be Friday evening.

    3). Please remember to bring hard hats for you and your spotter. They are a requirement to race in any of the races.

    4). If you don't have a spotter, we will try to help you locate one. ( with 500+ people already signed up, I'm sure that will not be a problem.)

    5). Come prepared to have a LOT of FUN!!

    Yes, anyone can participate in the exhibition race as long as they have a Racer themed aircraft, ( warbird, golden age , etc. ). Pilot briefing attendance , hard hats, and spotters are required.

    Thanks for posting additional info here. I hadn't noticed the races on the schedule before!

    Also, update: since my dad has decided to come with me, I've got a spotter!
