It [R-2800] worked pretty well for Czech Mate, which would’ve walked away with this year’s race.
Has there been a five-year time warp that I missed, or is there some other (perhaps less than explicit) point you wished to make? Voodoo is currently on museum display, hence the thread topic.Yep, but in 2016 Steve Hinton had to throttle back in Voodoo to keep the race close with Czech Mate.
"... F1 probably has the best overall rules. ....
...or you pick an engine and a value for that engine then with some provisions make it possible for any team to forcibly buy the winner’s engine. Seems a bit much, though.Another way to handle that would be for an engine manufacturing sponsor to issue each competitor with a new stock engine the week before the races.
How about a figure 8 course? The fans would love it!What if you set up an oval Formula 1 course, but shift the plane to 45 degrees or even vertical?
That would allow you to fly it along a river or lake in the middle of a large city.
If set your course at a major airport, then the danger zones and over-shoot zones are along the standard IFR approach and departure patterns.
You would need some sort of GPS tacking or recording altimeter to confirm that racers flew to the top of the oval course. A tilted course also proves plenty of new camera angles. What if you hovered a drone camera directly in line with the top leg of the titled course? That would provide another exciting camera angle?
