Rules & Regulations
 
Spotters
* Every pilot must have a Spotter. Pilots "on deck" for their upcoming heat will serve as spotters for the current heat. AMA rules
 
Duties include:
* Keeping visual contact at all times of their assigned pilot.
* Notifying Contest Director, Race Director and Pilots of an unsafe situations.
 
Race Disputes
* Missed Gate or Flag
- Pilots must fly through all gates. If a gate is missed, it is the responsibility of the pilot to safely taxi around (please avoid oncoming drones) and hit the gate.
- If a pilot misses a gate or cuts a flag turn, that run is disqualified and the pilot recieves a DNF.
 
Flying Out of Bounds
* Scored as a DNF. No laps are tallied.
 
Aircraft Damaged / Not Able to Race
* If a Pilot notifies the Race Director prior to the start of the heat that he cannot race, the race director can bump the pilot to a new heat for reruns. Race Director can deny request for any reason. Pilots will get no more than one of these type of reruns.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Not Ready in Time
* At the time where the race director calls the next race heat, a 4 minute timer (approx.) should be started. The purpose of this clock is not to give pilots 4 minutes to get to the line but instead to give the race director authority to start a race without a pilot once the 4 minute mark has been reached. The race does not have to start in 4 minutes but this provides the race director with a fair measurement tool for this decision.
 
Race
* Pilot Jumps the Gun / Starts Early - Pilot will lose 1 Lap.
* Aircraft does not take off - Pilot Out of Race, No Rerun.
* Aircraft flips - Safety Officer should flip quads for pilots at start as long as there is no traffic in area. No Rerun.
* Crash into other aircraft. - Official Ruling - OUT, No Rerun
* Pilot loses video due to someone else plugging in and this is proven via DVR - Rerun
* Pilot Loses Video for Unknown Reason - Out
* Gate falls over, full heat rerun
 
Post-Race
* No celebration laps, no celebration freestyle or high-flying, no interfering with the flight lines of other pilots still racing.
 
Disputes
* Occasionally a pilot may request a rerun (like in the event of losing video). The Race Director is the final authority of all such disputes.
