3) In the UNLIMITED class change the pilot position rule to mandate the pilot and RC must pick a single fixed position for the entire flight. With the goal to position yourself half way between the takeoff spot and the turn spot. This will require you to track the bird with your directional antenna as it flies over you. The goal and purpose of all this will allow us to double the distance limit (not to mention the added challenge of antenna tracking the bird and a geology to be able to takeoff/land from 59,000 feet away).
Anyone have thoughts on this?[/QUOTE]
So this is interesting. Explain how this would work. So not necessarily in the middle but say I would like to park my aircraft a mile upstream from me, somebody would start the aircraft for me, I would then engage motors fly it towards me over my head and then in the direction downstream I wish to go hit the distance limit, come back and land back at that home point a mile from me giving me 65,000 feet, Give or take
