Event Contest

Contest Rules

Novice

1. Timed tail in hover
Task

The pilot will be timed for what they think is a 60 second hover with the tail of the helicopter pointing towards the pilot. The helicopter must be kept at a tail in attitude from take-of to landing.

Object

Once the pilot is ready, he will lift the helicopter off in a hover, at this point the timer will start a stop watch. The pilot then in his own mind hovers till they thinks they have reached 60 seconds, at which they will then set the helicopter back down on its skids. (No watches or transmitter clocks can be used). At this point the timer will stop the watch. If for any reason the helicopter skids touch the ground, that will stop the watch which ends their attempt.
