All models should be 25mW 5.8GHz or Wi-Fi FPV equipped. A frequency control system will be employed whereby each pilot will be allocated a video operating band, to guarantee frequency separation a maximum of 4 pilots will be permitted to transmit at any one time. Each model will need to be checked and a transmitter tag allocated before being cleared to fly.

Depending on the number of FPV models ready to fly there may be an opportunity to fly non-FPV equipped models.

Flying at these events will take place generally in accordance with our procedures developed at the regular indoor R/C events, details of which are available on our website.

INDOOR R/C SMALL MODELS MEETING


Following the success of last season’s Indoor R/C Small Models Meetings, Waltham Chase Aeromodellers have booked the Main Hall at

All meetings will run from 7.00 p.m. to 9.30 p.m. This is the venue at which we hold our popular indoor F/F meetings. The hall is not large enough for conventional shock flyers, but has proved suitable for smaller indoor R/C models.

Models to be flown at these meetings are to be limited to a maximum weight of 95 grammes (3.5 ounces) for fixed wing aircraft, in flight trim, including battery (not to exceed a 2-cell Li-Po pack).
Helicopters are to be limited to a rotor diameter of 12” (305mm). All models will be weighed before flight, and will be judged on their suitability for the venue on the evening. Fixed wing models such as the Parkzone Ultra Micro series appear to be most suited to the hall.

Flying at these events will take place generally in accordance with our procedures developed at the regular indoor R/C events, details of which are available on our website.

Admission to the meetings will be £4 for fliers and £1 for spectators, whilst accompanied children will be admitted free. Junior fliers will be charged as adult spectators. Fliers will be required to show proof of insurance.

Waltham Chase Aeromodellers look forward to welcoming all R/C indoor fliers to these events.
