What rules are we going to be using for springers around here. I personally think we make them as simple as possible . ie. single prop of a set size (38mm 3 blade), a single rudder of set size (4sq inches), no korts of any type, superstructure of set minimum (4"x4"). Max voltage of 7.2v, 540 3 or 5 pole motors, no gearing allowed, hull size ar per the american design.
If we keep the rules as simple as possible it minimizes loopholes. The more complex the rules the greater scope for interpretation. Also if they are simple and cheap to build it may help encourage novices to build them.
Having two classes of springer restricted and unrestricted also complicates the issue.
What does everyone think? ??? ??? ???
