New Spec Class Racing Comes To Music City

 

This will be Music City Multirotors first attempt at organizing a spec class drone race.  The hopes are to bring in new pilots that are unsure of exactly what they need to get started.  Spec racing eliminates a lot of the hassle that goes along with designing and building a copter for racing.  With everyone running the same equipment it should be easy for beginners to get help,  the specs were selected based on a number of factors including price,  build time,  build difficulty,  performance,  and availability.

There is a kit available on banggood that has everything you need except the FPV gear and R/C control that is appropriate for most people.

These motors are available in other colors just make sure the specs are correct.

Flight Controller:

Can be any F1 or F3 generation flight controller.  F4 generation flight controllers are NOT allowed.

 

 

Battery:

Any 4s lipo is permitted,  there is a voltage limitation rule set a 4.20v max per cell.  So you CAN run lihv but it must only be charged to a normal voltage of 4.20v like a standard lipo.

 

 

PDB,  FPV Gear and R/C control:

200mw VTX max with Raceband.  

We recommend everyone start buying switchable power output VTxs as we may be running races on 25mw next year.
