The categories where pilots can compete are given by certain parameters that aircraft must comply with.
All registered drivers will receive a pack of welcome with the rules of the event and goodies of the sponsors / collaborators.
In formula-d there are two different competitions that will be described below and each of them should be classified within each of the following categories shown on this page.
In this competition a total of 16 pilots will participate, 12 professional pilots and the best 4 pilots in the OPEN category.
The competition will be held under the modality “Compass Draw Tournament” or double elimination tournament.
The 12 pilots selected for the PRO competition will receive a unique 500 Eur reimbursement for travel expenses.
Each round will last 6 laps of the course. For each group of 4 pilots, the first two pilots, to reach the finish line and finish the 6 laps in the shortest possible time, will pass to the next round. The two pilots remaining in the third and fourth positions of the round will have the possibility to return to compete in the corresponding round. Pilots who have lost two (2) rounds will be definitively eliminated from the competition. The pilots who compete in the final round will obtain the following prizes:
|1st Place||1500 Eur||Yes||Yes|
|2nd Place||750 Eur||Yes||Yes|
|3rd Place||500 Eur||Yes||Yes|
This competition is open to all pilots to participate, and is designed and thought for pilots without professional experience.
Each pilot inroled in the OPEN category will need to pay a tuition fee of 20 Eur.
The competition will be held under the modality of elimination for greater time.
Each group of 6 pilots will run 3 rounds (races). Each round will last 4 laps of the course. Each driver will add his two (2) best times obtained in the rounds, for the general classification. The four (4) best pilots (least accumulated times) will receive the following prizes:
|Metallic||Trophy||Sponsors products||Classification to the PRO competition|
|1st Place||150 Eur||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|2nd Place||75 Eur||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|3rd Place||50 Eur||Yes||Yes||Yes|
Below are the different categories in which the drivers can compete, These categories will be specified at the beginning of each competition.
Class 3S class includes drones suitable for both beginners and professionals. Pilots can control their aircraft without fear of their teams overcoming their skills Of flight. However, it still offers power to perform high speed racing. *
Class 4S class includes drones suitable for advanced FPV racing pilots. Pilots must have a skill level high enough to control the aircraft appropriately or they will overload quickly and lose the precision needed to compete competitively. *
|3S||305mm Max||6 “(152mm) Max||800g Max||3 cell Lipo Max||250mw Max||No restrictions|
|4S||305mm Max||6 “(152mm) Max||800g Max||4 cell Lipo Max||250mw Max||No restrictions|
|OPEN||No limit||No limit||800g Max||No limit||250mw Max||No restrictions|
Remember, classes are guidelines to provide competitive standards Within a typical day of racing in Formula-D.
Many pilots will ask why the power limit of the transmitter Video (VTx) is set to 250 mW. This is to increase the rate of success of multiple pilots who have a perfect video transmission clear. If some pilots are transmitting at a higher power, the probability of experiencing frequency problems increases.
As the new technology is launched, classes and specifications will be will be updated to incorporate or retain progress to maintain competition loyal as the number one priority.
All aircraft must be built with the ability to easily change vTx channels in a timely and accurate manner.
