Racing Stock Warbirds – Updated Rules

FMS P-51

Please review the Updated Rules for Stock Electric Warbirds. The next racing event takes place on June 17th and is open to anyone with valid AMA. No trophies…just the satisfaction of winning and bragging rights. Plus, there is always a great lunch as part of the plan.

The rules are pretty simple…when you open the box and put what’s in the box together…that is STOCK!  Use the manufacturer recommended size battery…i.e. whatever cell size (i.e. 3, 4, or 5, cells).  And use the prop that came in the box…they are readily available at the hobby shop and on-line. Below are some known models and their data.

In the Shop with Wayne

During the racing days of Warbirds in St. Louis I had a practice racer that I flew constantly doing laps and making left hand turns. It was a modified Jemco fun scale Mustang that was modified with a sheeted wing and had an OS .40 Rear exhaust engine and a Macs Muffler. It was done in the race colors of Leroy Penhalls #81 Reno racer from 1969-70.
