Speed testing is driven mainly by Andre van Huysteen and also mainly happening at PRF, find his contact information on the management page.
Speed testing started about 4 years ago and is growing. Over time we hope to match the FAI requirements as participation grows.
What is Speed Test all About?
Two markers are placed 200 m apart. You need to fly between these markers, total 4 flights and the results are computed and kept on a PC. Not higher than 30m and not lower than 5m! A camera system is used to obtain results.
You will soon realize that it is not only about flying fast but skills are required to maximize your effort!
We provide for 4 classes: FW Electric, FW Gas, Heli and Jets as it is right now. These are the official National classes in play but within PRF we are working on the following classes as internal competition:
