It should be easy enough for a simple test. Start your boat, turn off the transmitter. If the engine cuts out then that is what they are wanting, this is also what has been proposed by Bob in the last committee minutes. Some transmitters will do this, some won't, and others can be programmed to.

We have discussed this at club level and our position is that all boats used on our facility will be fitted with a Ignition Coil Disabling System which will turn the engine off when the Transmitter is switched off. This will be tested at scrutineering.

This contrary to your entry form and the NZMPBA rules, so this is something you are adding at this late stage.

Still haven't seen a definite answer to my specific failsafe question on 15 October.

So will ask another question, what is the state of Henley lake (level and toxic algae) considering that there has been very little rain since Trevor's encouraging post on 13 october.

Is the event still on?

And when do entries close?

Hello.

We have 14 entries to date. I have been away and only just home so haven't caught up with Keith to see who, anyway 14 of you.

I haven't been down to look but I understand the lake is looking good, and clean at this stage, so the event is still on. The gates will be open at 7/30.am and after all the formalities and a practice will get racing underway, hopefully by 9/30.am

We will get the entries into two heats then after looking at the attrition rate will see how many finals we will need to run. As is the norm over here we will try to get you a number to keep all day.

We will close entries on Thursday night and will get the fields and info to you.

Regarding the questions on fail safes. Our stance here is, and always has been, that using a coil disabling fail safe system, it must be demonstrated that the motor can be stopped by turning off the transmitter. The boat must be fitted with a coil disabling system and this used to stop the engine.

I hope that clears up any confusion.

Wayne.

Hi,

For those who worry about such things, I went down to look at Henley. The water level is high but not a lot going in. The lake looked lovely and the water is clear. We are expecting rain before the weekend so should be all good.

Wayne.

Sorry

The way I see it whether it be your rules or NZMPBA rules with regards to fail safes, if this a sanctioned event then only NZMPBA rules should apply. NZMPBA rules cover everything you are wanting, but you are interpreting them in a different way. Don't be so dogmatic over something that is set in concrete by the NZMPBA. Cheers Sorry
