Race Specifications/Classes: Open class – 305mm Max – 800g Max – 25mW Max
Tech Inspection: We require pilots to pass a quick tech inspection before each race. This check-in process will be carried out by the race director. Pilots will provide their name, pilot handle, admission fees and AMA info. Pilots will also be required to demonstrate that their drones are transmitting on the Proper channel and at the correct power level. We also check pilots for proper failsafe settings. (If you turn off your transmitter during flight, your drone should turn off quickly)
IMD6c: We require all VTXs to be Raceband and FatShark compliant. All VTX’s will be required to run at 25mW. Please come prepared to change your VTX and/or the channel/band of your VTX as needed for each race.

It is our mission to welcome new fliers, teach safety, hold events and races that invite the community to participate and/or observe the fascinating world of FPV and multi-rotor racing and freestyle flying.
——————————————————————————
Classes are as follows:
BEGINNERS will have access to the track just the same as any pilot, but will only be required to go through the start/finish gate. All other gates and flags are optional. These pilots can use the race to simply practice flying at their own speed. Use this class to practice flying and getting the feel of what a race track is like. (Please sign up in the Novice class and let the race director know if you will be planning on flying at this level)
NOVICE class will be for pilots who are ready to compete for a podium spot. This class will feature its own Novice route within the whole track for pilots to easily fly a course. All gates and flags (within this simplified course) will be required and these pilots will compete for the podium!
SPORT class will be for the intermediate pilots, and will feature the entire course as it is set-up. This class will include all pilots who are ready to compete against other Sport class pilots for a podium spot. Once a Sport class pilot wins 3 races, he or she will be advanced into the Pro class.
PRO class will be for the fastest pilots of the club, and the country. These pilots must have finished 1st in 3 KCMR races, or 1st in any larger national event (MultiGP, DRL, etc.) This class will also compete for a podium spot with other Pro pilots.
Please make sure to join the event on MultiGP and select the appropriate class.
