The latest FAC Rule Book is now online.  There are very minor changes, all in red text.

  • One of the “biggest” changes that there is now no minimum wingspan for Simplified Scale (so your Dimers now qualify for Simplified – although you cannot fly the same model in both events at the same contest).
  • Polyspan and similar tissue-like films are permitted, however “plastic” coverings are still prohibited. (You can use mylar – but you must cover it with tissue.)
  • A clarification on undercambered airfoils for Scale models – they are permitted where the original had undercamber.  They are prohibited where the full scale never had it – and prohibited in Dime, regardless of the original configuration.
  • Phantom Flash – minimum weight for “normal” events is 5g.  Lighter ARE permitted, if the CD announces a “master” class event without weight restrictions.  Both events can be run in one contest.
  • Goodyear Races now permit “designed and built for”, not just “flown”.

That’s it!  Download the new rules RIGHT HERE (or on the Rules page above on the menu).
