Q: I have a quadcopter or multi-rotor RC can i bring it and film or fly.

Q:Do i need a remote kill Switch fitted to my RC car?
A: YES you do, we have made this a requirment for running any petrol RC car at our event (Nitro & electric need to have a working fail safe system that can control the car safly in the event of a failure). This will be checked by marshals at the event. This is for every ones safty attending the event.
This is a kill switch that can be operated remotly from the controller or if radio signal is lost the engine will be cut/stopped this is a seperate item from the kill switch found on petrol RC engines.
