Default Review | Eliminator Air Races | 2nd of 3 for 2022

The 2nd of 3 Eliminator Races has been completed and is in the books. This race saw new winners in RWYB and Silver. Gold was won by David Lloyd, he took his 3rd event win in 5 races. This makes him the man to beat in Eliminator Gold. However, we must say that the last race was all about who was going to cross the finish line 1st, because all 3 pilots broke out; Big Time! Ben McBride came across 1st with 1:24.03, then Ritchie Thorp at 1:25.47 and Llyod at 1:25.68. Sadly, Doug Killebrew never got his motor to run. Later he discovered that his needle valve was all the way in.

The Silver class saw a new winner in Tom Easterday. He tide Andy McBride with the best qualifying time of 2:00.05. However, the tide breaker is the registration order, making Andy the top qualifier. In the finals those two met again. Andy cross the line 1st with 1:57.34, breakout! Tom then cross at 2:03.04 followed closely by Ron Russell; 2:03.56. Gary Long was just too slow finishing with a 2:08.15. Silver once again had the tightest qualifying class. Randy Dauer qualified 8th (last) with a 2:02.62 and the top 6 qualifiers ran 2:00.73 or better.

The RWYB has always been the wild and crazy class. You never know what you’re going to get. This race saw Ervin Myers take an event win with a 2:30.18, his best time ever. Ervin is new to RC flying and even newer to RC Pylon Racing. He started his career with the Test and Tune event (1-8-22). In his 1st race he made his way to the finals but took 3rd. This race he was bumped out of qualifying as the 3rd round started, but he did manage to make it in with his last effort, late in the 3rd round. He then dominated the elimination rounds taking two 1st place finishes. He likes to play the rookie card, but we’ve learned better.

Special note, at the beginning of this race we updated the pilots on the new Miss Ashely short kit that is coming out. We hope to have the 1st plane flying in the next 30 days. Also, we announced that we have found a solution for electronic timing. We now have some of the key components. We hope to have a Test and Tune event sometime this summer to test the system. We will keep you up to date via email.
