a) The team being eliminated from that round.Competitors entering more than 1 event must make the organisers aware of any potential time clashes before the start of the round.
b) The other competitors being put into a reflight position at the end of the round.
In case of reruns, there will be a redraw for starting positions, unless it is a full (same 3 teams) rerun of a previous attempt.
Drawn 2 up races being filled up with a 3rd team, will be redrawn for starting positions.
Rule 4.3.6.e. – choice of segment.
Teams are not permitted to change their selected segment after the start of the warm-up.
The flying circle is marked as follows:
bend down when landing andwhen your race is finished, please get your model and yourself out of the way of the remaining competitors (Teams could be disqualified for obstructing other pilots). This means-
avoid lifting the handle above their heads when taking off, catching other pilots lines. This is a potentially dangerous behaviour and will cause a warning to be applied (local rule 1)
pilots moving outside the circle and if possible not into an occupied sector.Failure to prevent your model damaging another teams equipment after finishing the race, could impose a penalty of Disq. From entire contest for gross unsporting behaviour.
Pilots moving their model clear of other landing models. (local rule 2)
WHIPPING.Pilots need to recognise that as soon as a warning is given, the judges will expect the pilot to respond. Failure to correct his flying style will risk another penalty being given as a repeat of that same offence.
ILLEGAL HANDLE POSITION.
Is defined:as holding
as pulling another pilot in such a way that his normal activities may be impeded
as preventing another pilot from moving around correctly by occupying the free "space" by raising of his left arm / elbow.
Remember that the same rules apply at laps 90+, as at the start of racing.
"RED TEAM DISQUALIFIED, PLEASE LAND YOUR MODEL"
The pilot does not have to wait for his mechanic to translate or approve the judges verdict.
It is the responsibility of the team to have an interpreter inside the fence if required.
Local rule 2: Remember, that the mechanic's feet are not allowed inside the circle, will be applied during the contest. Main objective is safety.
A normal landing will generally have the pilots in front of his model with the possibility of crossed lines. Mechanics need to remember this before releasing their model.
Obstruction can be caused by objects belonging to a team and not just by that team's actions. I.e. caps, glasses, line reels, rags, etc.
The command "STOP RACING - SAFETY" must be immediately responded to. Reason is F2C judges view of an immediate significant safety risk. This will be supported by the FAI jury.
The F2C judges are aware that the jury guide in the sporting Code on the official FAI website is not up to date. The F2C judges are seeking to maintain the current understanding of the competitors and will, therefore, be using the current version of the guide (Version 4-1995). Copies will be made available if required.
It is the F2C judges opinion that rule 4.3.10.e. (a standby attempt) does not meet the intended fair chance for a back-up team. If a stand-by team is not responsible for the termination of a race, they will remain eligible for the next official reflight of that race.
