Default Smallest Pylon Class

I can't seem to find the engine requirements for the different pylon classes. We would like to race the smallest class there is. Thanks.

The best thing to do is find out what is being run in your area and then see if it peaks your interest. For the most part the physically smallest airplanes would be the Electric formula 1. But starting out in Q500 would be the easiest way to go.

The heck with official racing classes! Race what you want with your friends. We race with Cox .049 Sure Start engines. The only rule is the engine must be a reed valve Cox motor. Anything else goes!
