News Flash from Georgetown. For our next race we will be trying our new robot. This is a version of the Hico starting system. It is an electronically-manually operated robot called the Kendziorbotic. The kendziorbotic will hold four planes on the starting line while their engines are at full power (just like the Hico system). Therefore callers will not be required to hold the planes. When the starting flag is dropped the Kendziorbotic will release the first two planes and then, like magic, release the next two exactly one second later. This one second delay is accurate to within +or - .001 of a second. Thatís one millisecond for those that understand mills, micros and nannos. You will be amazed.
Another News Flash, unlike our previous races, this time we are not able to put up the pylons until the Friday before the race. The farmer will be planting during the week but told me he would be finished by Friday. If you arrive before Friday you can still fly, but do not fly over the moving tractor.
