Practice & Qualifying Rounds

  • All quads participating must pass technical requirement tests to be made before the qualifying round and have their quads marked as valid. No unmarked quad may join the qualifying and elimination races.
  • Number of qualifying runs are to be determined (in terms of pack per pilot) according to the race schedule. Max number of flights possible.
  • Practice and Qualifying are flown as one. Qualifying results calculated by best 3 consecutive laps’ time.Pilots have to complete 3 full consecutive laps to have a valid qualifying time. If a pilot misses a gate or hurdle she/he has to turn back and re-enter the same gate/hurdle (same rule applies to elimination races).
  • Qualifying runs are time based, 1 lipo pack and 3 minutes for each pilot. 4 Pilots fly at the same time. Single runs. Crashed pilot is out.
  • Random qualifying heat matchups. Qualifying heat matchups and frequencies will be published on the web. After the heats are published, pilots will have 30 minutes of free time to adjust vtx frequencies and get ready. There is a waiting time of 3 minutes between heats for the pilots to be ready at flight poisitions. Pilots who do not comply lose their heat position for that round.
  • Pilots may choose to use “co-pilot/buddy” during qualifiers and elimination races. During qualifiers and races, lap counts and other info will not be announced by the judges.
  • In case of failsafe, no rerun or extra battery/qualify slot is given, unless all pilots failsafe at the exact same situation/time, depicting a general problem.
