This page is dedicated to Bakersfield Multirotor FPV Racing Racing Information Bakersfield Multirotor (BMR) is not just about racing but a large part of it is and we made this page to help with understanding the requirements to race with BMR. If you are interested in Racing, you came to the right place. We will list all the basic information so you know what is expected and what may be required to race. Bakersfield Multirotor is a Tier 1 Chapter of a MultiGP MultiRotor Chapter. If you are trying your hand at FPV Multirotor racing, your first step is to join the Bakersfield MultiGP Chapter at; http://www.multigp.com/chapters/view/Bakersfield-Multirotor

Requirements to Race with BMR

1. Become a Member of the Bakersfield MultiGP Chapter  or at least join the Race at our chapter page. o Your Multirotor shall meet the basic requirements per MultiGP Classes (see below)   2. All Races shall use 5.8 GHz FPV Video Frequency (VTX) and shall NOT be greater then 200mw to Race or Fun Fly depending on location. o Quality VTX Transmitters are required that read within 25mW +/- 5mW or 200mW +/- 10mW as per race requirements. o No Pipole Antennas Please. 3.

All Participants shall list their FAA Registration No. & AMA Member Number (or contact info) on their aircraft Drone Race Classes… Bakersfield Multirotor are usually Bakersfield Open Class or as MultiGP has it stated as 3S & 4S Class unless stated by the individual race specifications listed per the race. Standard Race Drone Class: Frame = 305 Maximum Propellers = 3” Minimum to 6” Maximum Weight = 800g Maximum Battery = 4 Cell Maximum. Outdoor, Video Transmitter (VTX) = 200mW Maximum o 32 Channel Minimum Indoor or Outdoor, Video Transmitter (VTX) = 25mW Maximum o 32 Channel Minimum o 5.8 GHz Motors = No Restrictions Micro Race Drone Class: Frame = No Limit Propellers = 2” Maximum Weight = No Limit Battery = 2 Cell Maximum. Outdoor, Video Transmitter (VTX) = 200mW Maximum o 32 Channel Minimum Indoor, Video Transmitter (VTX) = 25mW Maximum o 32 Channel Minimum o 5.8 GHz Motors = No Restrictions Tiny Whoop Class: Frame = Horizon Hobby Blade Inductrix stock and/or custom frames o Aluminum and Carbon Fiber allowed o Must include Propeller Guards Battery = 1S, 250mAh Maximum Video Transmitter (VTX) = 25mW Maximum o 32 Channel Minimum o 5.8 GHz Flight Controller = No Restrictions More Drone Race Information… As of 2017, BMR races may now have added Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced race Classes. You put yourself in the class you want to race in by Joining the race class you think your skill matches on each scheduled MultiGP Race but you can not go down a class unless most race pertinence say it is okay as you made a mistake. Win 1st in three races, you move up a class or as to ability or until your skill level improves. Beginner Class:  Only need to follow track and fly through Start/Finish Gate and not miss any flags. Intermediate Class:  Follow full track and fly through all low Gates and not miss any flags but can avoid all obstacles like over/under gates, tree obstacles, and any other custom obstacles. Advanced Class:  Follow full track and fly through all Gates and not miss any flags and  fly through all custom obstacles. Open Class: Any Ability may participate if full race if other classes are not used in assigned race. Fixed Time: 2:00 min. Approx. 1 or more practice rounds About 3 or more Qualify race rounds A to C or more Mains or as required Scored by 1 round time and lap count (completed laps & total time) Finish last lap after timer sounds and count if finished Ties are determined by god Qualify Rounds: Staggered Start Mains: Heads up start (no staggered start) Pilots must have AMA membership card present. 200mw VTX max 2017, Timing per TBS EventTracker Frequency Timing and FPV LiveTimeRC o http://bakersfieldmultirotor.LiveFPV.com/ Most races will be timed with the TBS EventTracker VTX Timing System. With every race, the system gets better and I learn how to run it better. As always, there are no guarantees as to so many types of builds the pilots bring to the races, we have some recommended guidelines you should follow to help the system pick you up on race day. If you really want the timing system to read; For Analog, we recommend, good antennas, Quality Transmitters ( VTX's), good VTX placements, VTS's running from 190mW to 220mW consistent and good builds, if 200mW is specified for the race you are signed up for. The little , single stands, dipole / whip antenna may not be a good idea. Once more, Use Quality Transmitters! For Connex, I recommend, sticking with manufacture specification on antenna placement, at least one horizontal mounted, both working antennas, no custom antennas and no direct antenna placements on the carbon fiber. Remember, just because you are getting good video with your build, does not always translate over to a VTX Timing system able to pick you up. Any time not read by timing system is the pilots responsibility and will not place you into Mains and will not win you the race. Extended Information Statement, Agreement, and Disclaimer. The Bakersfield Multirotor group may hold unsanctioned events. All flyer’s will hold harmless all organizers, event host, and/or other members and attendees from any actions of others. Attending any Bakersfield Multirotor event, you have stated you have read and understand all from the BMR’s Disclaimer Page (click here) and the BMR racing page. Per information stated on the Bakersfield Multirotor Disclaimer page  (click here), events may be shutdown and no action shall be taken against any and all organizers, event host, and/or other members and attendees. By RSVP’ing, Joining, and/or showing up to an event, you agree and understand you are responsible for yourself and know all laws, rules, ordinances, and other requirements stated and not stated on BakersfieldMultiRotor.com. All that take part in any event or race shall read and understand all information from the disclaimer and racing pages on BakersfieldMultiRotor.com.   Those who take part in group discussions or activities are not responsible for the actions of other members of the group. Each participant and member of the group bears the sole responsibility for his or her actions and any damage they cause to people or property. By participating in this group and events, you accept sole responsibility for your actions per http://bakersfieldmultirotor.com/disclaimer.htm.    Race RulesS: PILOTS Fly only in designated areas. Fly only at appropriate times. Keep your multirotor at least (30) feet away from the  pilot area. Flying any closer can cause your video  transmitter to interfere with other pilot’s reception. When finishing a race, land ON the course (at least 30  feet away from the pilot area and within landing area if provided. No victory laps. Pilot will be penalized When flying on the course, you must be positioned  within the designated Pilot Area.  o DO NOT fly from any other area. Only power up your multirotor / video transmitter while  in the Start/Finish area on the course. DO NOT power  up in the pits or while walking from the pits to the  course. Let others know by yelling you are powering up. If you need to check your video channel or change  frequency, this MUST be completed between heats and  no one is flying. You MUST also ensure you have the  appropriate Frequency Assigned to you for the  frequency you wish to check. If you are flying before or after the event you MUST  ensure you have the appropriate Frequency assigned to  you for the frequency you are using. You MUST ensure you have a Spotter in the Pilot Area  while flying. A Spotter observes the course for dangers  such as members of public, animals, other model fliers,  low flying aircraft or vehicles. Spotters stand in the Pilot  Area to ensure clear communication including counting  laps and verifying gates and flags are not missed. You are required help with spotting for the heat before yours. 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 and unable to recover - 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 during race - Out, no rerun Collapsed Obstacles (Gate, Flag, Etc) o In the event of a collapsed obstacle then a restart will be called. If an obstacle is partially affected, the race director will make a decision. o Pilot or pilots that cause obstacles to collapse will not participate in heat re-run and points will not be saved for those pilots within that round.  No victory laps! When the race is over, complete your current/final lap and immediately land in the dedicated landing zone. Points will be deducted for victory laps as this confuses spotters, slows down other racers not yet completed the race and may cause crashes. Race timing between heats… Standard races will have max time between heats. Basic 5 heat race will have a 4 minute max between heats including a 1 min. remaining warning. If you are not ready to race within the 4 min., race will start without you and you forfeit the heat. If a race has less than 3 heats per round, max race timing between heats will increase to no more than 10 min. between heats and as per the discretion of Race Director Time is max time, so if all pilots in the heat are ready, race will start sooner. Race Spotting… Each pilot is required to spot for the pilot before his heat that is assigned the same assigned channel Not only are Line of Sight spotters required per AMA and FAA rules, spotters are required to count laps and verify gates and flags are not missed. If there is not a pilots slatted to race in the heat before pilots race, pilots are required to spot for the pilot in the proceeding heat and so on. If pilot is unable to spot, the spotting pilot is required to find a replacement before the race starts. If spotting pilot fails to spot or find replacements, spotting pilot will forfeit all lap points from previous heat or per the discretion of the Race Director if spotting has not informed the Race Director of the situation. Race Directer has final authority to direct race spotters and or deduct lap points. Race Director has the discretion of taking the spotters word if spotter sees a missing gate or flag and the pilot must show DVR proof if he disagrees with spotter. Leaving a race early… No pilot shall leave a race before it's over*. If a pilots leaves a race early, all times and points will be forfeited for that race. If a pilot request to leave as to emergency or other issues, the pilot must get final approval from Race Director and help Race Director, locate placement spotter if pilot has the time as to the Emergency. * Remaining present until the end of the race is only fair to the other pilots as to the spotter requirements. 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 excluding race Mains. Race Director can deny request for any reason. Pilots will get no more than one of these type of reruns. 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 receives a DNF for that heat. Gate must be flown through in the direction of track layout. Disputes... Occasionally a pilot may request a rerun (like in the event of losing video) excluding race Mains. as no reruns shall be granted The Race Director is the final authority of all such disputes. Race Director has full authority to deduct points and times for full race and race series per abuse of all rules and un-sportsmen like conduct Race Tie Breaking Rule from Bakersfield Multirotor. Fastest time per the discretion of race director Pilot with Transponder wins over Pilot Without Transponder or pilots ready by timings system win over pilots without times. If both Pilots do not have a transponder (if required), one more extra tie breaking heat will be run until higher points from that one heat wins the tie. Extra heats will be run if ties remain until tie is broken. Clarification If pilot has a working transponder but it broke, that pilot falls into the category of a pilot without a transponder if a replacement can not be added to quad. (not used for Fastest Lap format as you may still have lap times) If a pilot with a working transponder has no recorded times, that pilot falls into the category of a pilot without a transponder. Race Director and/or Race Host has the option to substitute Overall heat time, with one fastest lap time for race tie beakers If VTX timing system is used and system does not pick up pilot times during race, the pilots with time win over pilots without recorded times. All pilots are recommended to bring the following items . Nothing listed below are mandatory. Chairs and Pilot Chair as required Pilot Table Sun Cover or Ez-up Shade Extra batteries or a way to charge batteries without electrical outlets. NO electrical hookup will be available Sun screen Water and Electrolyte drinks Cooler as required to keep drinks cool Lunch or snacks. Local fast food and Rite Aid is located down the road. Trash bags. (Limited trash cans will be available so plan on removing your trash from site) Fire Extinguisher (Class D recommended but anything is better than nothing) First Aid Kit SPECTATORS & PIT CREW: The event is fun to watch and discuss. However, please stay away from the pilots within the Pilot Area while they are flying (unless you are acting as a spotter). Clear communication is essential with the pilots for accurate lap scoring, penalties and hazard warnings. All Spectators are recommended to bring the following items Chairs as no seating is available at event Sun Covers or Ez-up Shade Sun screen Water and Electrolyte drinks Cooler as required to keep drinks cool Lunch or snacks. Local fast food and Rite Aid is located down the road. Trash bags. (Limited trash cans will be available so plan on removing your trash from site) If you are having an Event or thought it would be just cool to to host a Drone Race, Local to Bakersfield or out of town and you would like Bakersfield Multirotor to help, Please visit this page for more information. (Click Here Now) FREQUENCIES USED at most races: Only five (5) pilots will be allowed to fly at any one time. We will run only these 5 frequencies at each race o E2, F2, F4, F7, & E6
