Wombat Rotor Racing on the Fairway

  • Hi Folks,

    We are confirmed for a Saturday evening on the fairway - currently from 3-6pm.  After talking with the folks at the golf course to see if we can start earlier we got permission to start at 3pm!  However, the SJC tower is forcing us to stop at 6pm due to darkness :-(    Also please arrive a little early (like 2:30pm) to get your quad ready so we can fly ASAP after course setup.

    The golf course is requiring we all have current AMA memberships cards and ID's on us while flying in case of emergency.  Also, please ensure that if you are flying a quad over 250g  you have it registered with the FAA - and bring that UAV ID number with you and give to me before flying/racing.

    I have my usual 9 gates and 3 circle gates - with some glow sticks to augment the course...

    Golf course rules:

    • All experienced pilots with Racing quads welcome - please restrict your flying to the course only - we need to make sure no one flies above the trees or anywhere outside of the fairway - as per our agreement with the SJC tower.  We are within 5 miles of the airport so we need to obey the tower's rules.  

    • Stay off the tee boxes and greens - no crashes on the greens or tee boxes either so we need to be conscious of this when course setting.

    • We cannot setup until anyone golfing has "putted out" of hole one and on their way to hole 2.  Once we get the green light to setup any new golfers will walk past us and start on hole 2. 

    • Pricing will be based on the start time - starting at 3pm we will be charged $15 for the 3 hours of fly time.

    Can't wait for Saturday! Hopefully we will get a break in the rain to get some good flying in... If it does rain I will go anyway to try to catch a break... Show up at your own risk and bring rain gear just in case.

    Also, please remember this is a drop-in race only event... For racing quads with 5", 4", or 3" props only. No other flying is permitted by the SJC Tower (FAA).

    Thanks and see you Saturday!
