   Hello All,

    I'm not sure if the other thread for 2016 pylon racing has mentioned what classes we should race for 2016, because every time I've tried to read it I get booted off. So I apologize if this was already discussed.

   I know we are keeping EF1 and Roc Hobbies. what I'm looking for are ideas for the other two classes. One of the planes that has grabbed our attention for a new beginner class is the Great planes Super Sportster EP. The plane come Receiver ready for about $129.99. It only takes a 1300mah battery and fly's about the same speed as the T-28.

  Another question is do we want to race 3 or 4 classes. We had very low participation in the T-28 and Parkzone class at the end of the year. In fact we didn't even have a final in T-28. I'm game for 4 classes but I'm not sure what to pick. It would be a large jump in speed from the Sportster to Roc hobbies without another class in between.

   So I would like to put my vote in for having the T-28 Changed to The Super Sportster EP. Let's change it up. I really don't know what to vote on for another class. The one I wanted The cosmicwind ep is disco'd I see. Sad. So maybe some one else can suggest something. Like Bringing back Quickie 500!!!

 So let's hear those suggestions. Racing starts in April so you have about a month for suggestions and then a month to get your planes ready.

   Cheers,
Adam Clement

I think there are still quite a few Quickie 500's out there. Any one else think this would be a good class?

I guess we had our own class for the Quickie 500 races we had up at the dump site. They weren't that fast, as we all used OS 40 LA engines. I remember clocking mine at 103 coming from a down hill run.

I know that. I was just saying that was the setup we used in the club races up at the dump.

Hey Fellow Racers,
     It's almost that time again. Time to go fast and turn left. Because of some other events the Pylon season will start on May 1st at 10:00am.

1st Class will be the Electrifly Super Sporster EP. Plane must remain stock except for paint/stickers to make planes look different so we know who's who.

2nd Class will be the Infamous Roc Hobby Reno Class. These planes must also remain stock except for Paint/stickers and we have aggeed to let people swap out the elevator servo as some guys were having problems with there's.

3rd Class will be EF1. I'm not sure we will have enough guys to race this class. I have heard that nobody wants to but i don't believe it.

   If anyone wants to race something and can get a couple more guys we will be happy to squeeze you in. There has been talk of starting up our old Quickie 500 class. This would be our first Nitro class in years if we can get it going. Plane must use 9x6 prop, OS la40, fp40 bearingless engine, 15% nitro. if this interests you please speak up.

Hope to see you guys there. Any questions post them up here.

Thanks,
Adam
