2017 Launceston R/C Cup – Update No.5

The days of the Launceston Cup are fast approaching so now is the time to start making preparations.  No.1 Get your entries in NOW!  Classes are filling and in some instances we have stopped taking entries, or have limited spaces remaining.  Check your classes entered here, and you can find the link on how to enter on the same page  Please also make your payments if you have not done so already, again there are instructions on the Cup page.

High Voltage Lipo Batteries

The committee has been asked for clarification if the new 7.6V HV (High Voltage) batteries are allowed.  As per the AARCMCC regulations for Electric Off Rad, section 12, these batteries are allowed, HOWEVER they are only to be charged to 4.2 volts per cell, or a total of 8.4 volts maximum for the battery pack.  This is the same as the ROAR regulations, and spot inspections will be undertaken at the cup to ensure compliance.

What should I do to prepare?

For many drivers this is their first major meet, and if you have any questions most racers are only to willing to help out.  However this excellent article written by past member Scott Guyatt is an excellent document to read, or re familiarise yourself with School of R/C: Preparing for a Major Meeting

Behaviour at the Cup

We expect everybody to behave in a professional manner, and within the rules, be it spectating, marshalling or racing.  If you are unsure of anything, another old article entitled School of R/C: The Ethics of R/C is worth a read.
