Electric Comp

The competition format is:

Round 1
10 minute flight, no limit on motor run time, landing bonus for landing in marked circle within the 10 minutes.No penalty for exceeding 10 minutes but no landing bonus given.

Round 2
Mass launch with timed 1 minute motor run, fly for 10 minutes including motor on time and land in marked circle for landing bonus. No penalty for exceeding 10 minutes but no landing bonus given.

Round 3
Three 10 minute flights from one battery, landing bonus for landing in marked circle within the 10 minutes. No penalty for exceeding 10 minutes but no landing bonus given

Scoring in each round is:

1 point per second flight time. Landing bonus 100 points.

So, for example:

- a flight of 8m 30s missing the landing circle scores 510 points

- a flight of 8m 30s landing in the circle scores 510 + 100 = 610 points.

- a 12m minute flight scores 600 points

- a 10m 00s flight landing in circle scores the maximum of 700 points.
