This is an update on the list of registered Remote Control Dirigibles that will be providing us with sport, entertainment and thrills during the symposium, specifically at the Dirigible Races event.
We currently have 6 definite entries into the Dirigible races and/or design competition across 4 groups.
The League of Cincinnati Steampunks, The Clan of Teks, Her Majesty’s Airship Omnipotent of the glorious Unspeakable Empire of Cheviot, and The Airship Passpartout will have RC Dirigibles at the Symposium. Will YOUR group be entering a dirigible? Below is the list of transmitter types and frequencies we currently have registered for the races:
There are two 2.4 ghz transmitters (registered by Clan of Teks and Airship Omnipotent)
There are two Infra Red (IR) transmitters (registered by Airship Omnipotent)
There is one 27mhz transmitter (registered by Airship Passpartout)
There is one 49mhz transmitter (registered by The League of Cincinnati Steampunks)
It is important to note that RC vehicles that run on 2.4 ghz transmitters do NOT usually interfere with each other. The same goes for Infra Red (IR) transmitters, so if you have the choice, when you build your Dirigibles, try to find “powerplants” that use these two types of transmitters.
There are also may be other flying vehicles brought along that do not fit under the Dirigible races specifications, but that will nonetheless be cool to have flying around the symposium air field. (ornithopters, gliders, etc) If you are going to bring these kinds of things, and they are remote controlled, please let me know your transmitter type and frequency as well, we don’t want any of them interfering with the dirigible races.
There is already one such non dirigible flying contraption registered that runs 49 Mhz.
If you will be bringing a remote control flying machine to the Symposium, and if you want to enter a Dirigible into the races or design competion, please contact me on Facebook or via email (caelyn_8 (at) hotmail.com) to register your RC flying machines. Make sure to mention “RC Dirigible Races” in the title of your email.
