This is the Air Hog Titan glider converted to RC with an electric motor, correct? Any suggestions the best way to convert? Or just follow most any of the examples on You Tube?

Nope that makes sense. Any height at drop restrictions?

The "donut" is actually a common 3/8" washer with a streamer on it - I showed one at the meeting last night, and will have one with me at the Teeland flying nights.

Our thought was just one drop per launch (one "donut" per drop - no "full auto" mechanisms), but if someone can get several launches/drops in 3 minutes, we will count the closest to the target.

Does that sound good?

Can you explain the donut drop a little more? how many donuts do you get to drop, can you drop one then land and reload, etc?

ARCS Air Hogs Titan Fun Fly Contest

Date: 7 May 2016
Time: 10:00 am
Place: Moffit Field, Palmer

Planned Events (subject to weather & number of participants):

1. Pretty Plane

2. Number of loops in set amount of time (1 minute)

3. Spot landing (1 touchdown within 3 minute time limit)

4. Donut Drop (using 3/8" washer & streamer, 3 minute time limit)

5. Time aloft with limited motor run (30 seconds)

Here are the allowable modifications to the Air Hogs Titans:

1. The only surface area additions are for movable control surfaces (rudder and elevator are more than enough for control, but would also allow ailerons, flaps, spoilers, leading edge slats, etc. - so long as they are movable by the pilot in flight).

2. The same power plant/thrust system must be used for all contest events whether it be electric motor, glow engine, ducted fan, warp drive, etc. The only allowable changes between events would be amount of energy the pilot chooses to have onboard (capacity of battery, amount of glow fuel, quantity of dilithium crystals, etc.).

3. A device for dropping the washer/streamer (CF rod, dowel rod, extra servo, mechanism, etc.) may be removed for other events.

4. The AMA Safety Code needs to be followed.
