RCPRO Club Wingman Racing - Objectives

The goal of Club Wingman is to emulate the success of Club 40 using electric powered planes. Pilots who prefer electrics and clubs that may have noise restrictions or are electric only can enjoy the same fun as those racing Club 40. Club 40 is the fastest growing form of pylon racing in the country because almost anyone who is reasonably proficient at flying and assembling R/C aircraft can participate and have a lot of fun.

The Wingman II is a slightly smaller and lighter version of the Sky Raider Mach II. It is purpose built for electric power. While it has a glow option, it clearly is intended for electric power and is highly optimized for lowest weight possible with plenty of strength.

The motors, electronic speed controls, and batteries used will be the same as those used by the NMPRA EF1 racing class so that they can be used when the pilot wants a faster plane and for economy purposes. Since batteries for a full race are fairly expensive, this allows the cost of participation to be lowered.

Racing will be done on the AMA 540-B course sanctioned as Club 40. Race organizers may opt to shorten the course to quicken the pace of the racing. This should only be done for advanced pilots.

This is any entry level pylon racing class intended for fun and camaraderie.
