Default RCHN4 Registration is Live!

Hey all,

The Fourth Annual RC Heli Nation Fun Fly (RCHN4) registration page is now live and ready for you to register for the event!

Like always, you can do this on rcflightdeck.com and use paypal to check out. This time, we've added some additional registration options that will allow you to sign up for the various competitions that we'll be holding so that we know ahead of time who's in!

We'll also be doing an online registration raffle just for those who register on the website prior to the event...get a chance to get some cool stuff just for being on the ball!

The event will be held from Thursday September 15 until Sunday September 18 in Dayton OR on Ediger Farms just like last year. Larry and Jaime will be there with the Outlaw Grill so don't bother bringing any food, just BYOB...

There will be night flying under the construction lights, a live podcast, tons of competitions and contests, lots of stuff to win and give away, and more heli awesomeness than you've ever experienced at in one place. Trust me, it's pretty much like four days of pure heli debauchery!

So, without further delay, git 'er dun...

https://www.rcflightdeck.com/event.cfm?id=5815

Cheers,
- Justin

No worries, Michael. I should post them here for everyone just in case...

The shoehorn competition can't be registered for...you need an invite!

Model Classification

Classes are differentiated by body type and blade size. See detailed descriptions below:

Body Type

Sport - A standard, pod-and-boom model with a canopy that is open (not fully enclosed) starting at the axial location of the main shaft and extending to its aft-most extent axially and starting at the height of the boom and extended to the ground vertically. Models shall also have a rotor shaft perpendicular to the boom. Models shall meet the homologation rule.

Formula - A model with an airframe that is fully-enclosed by a fuselage. The model shall have a nearly continuous outer mold line with the exception of the point of egress of the main rotor, tail rotor, and landing gear assemblies. Models need not have a rotor shaft that is perpendicular to the boom. Models need not meet homologation rule.

Blade Size

Class 1 - 200-400mm
Class 2 - 401-530mm
Class 3 - 531-630mm
Class 4 - 631-720mm
Class 5 - 721-780mm
Class 6 - 781-850mm

Skill Level

In order to allow pilots to compete amongst their peers and have equal opportunity for recognition within the community, each MHSFA-registered pilot will be given the choice of which skill level in which to compete for each season. The two available levels are Novice and Master.

Novice is a category intended for those pilots who are just beginning or still learning the speed discipline or for those people who do not have aspirations to progress to a more advanced level. Novice pilots will only compete against other novice pilots and will not be subject to the pre-stage rule for their course. This is level is intended for the so-called “weekend-warrior.”

Master is a level intended for those pilots whose experience level and scoring consistency put them in the top few percent of their respective classes nationally or internationally for a given season. These pilots are subject to the pre-stage rule for their course. Additionally, the highest ranked master pilots in a given season may be invited to participate in larger national or international events that will provide additional community exposure to the pilot and whose top ranks will be given special awards.

Registered!
Will have to decide later what competitions I want to take part in. I think I can handle the 60 second hover and for sure will at least run my 700 in the speed cup. I'll have to think about the bottle knock and wait until the last minute on the auto contest. I might do that one if everyone is in dire need of a laugh at that time.

Quick question. During the registration process I saw Michael and a couple others already registered but now can't find my way back to where it showed who is registered. Is that possible?

Thanks for registering, guys!

Larry, I'll look into whether you can see who's registered. I thought that it only allows admins to see the full list, but maybe I'm wrong. I'll let you know.

Larry, when you open the event page there should be a button/tab for "pilots" on the left side of the page where you can see who has registered, and for which competitions.

Registered. Going to do the 60 second hover this year, and the speed cup again. Class 2 sport. Have to hit 100 mph this time with the Protos.

I'm wanting to bring my travel trailer for the weekend. Does the pilot registration fee cover that? or do I need to make other arrangements?

No extra fees in the past. I don't believe this year will be any different.

No extra fees. It's $35 to register as a pilot whether or not you're camping.
