Let's add C & D Dual Eggloft duration first and see how that plays with the younger generation that we are trying to attract. After seeing how it works with NRC will tell us if we should add complexity of an altimeter. The adults don't need experience, and clubs can add to any competitions for fun.
Some of the new competition fliers have issues with just straight altimeters. Let's give them a chance.

I respectfully disagree with Dan's premise, "it is clear more variety is needed." The evidence supporting his claim is...?
The NRC and events that constitute it are intended to allow younger members, particularly those from 7 -15, an access to competition based on low-cost motors and simple airframes, all of which fly well on small fields. AND, to incentivize their involvement through the immediate feedback provided by the Scoreboard.
IMO, the need for more variety is being expressed by the existing C and T members all of whom are not the target market of the NRC. If competitors want to fly events outside the current NRC list, there is nothing to stop them. But what is being sought here is the convenience of flying events that are more stimulating to the adult competitors AND getting NRC credit for it. I will not support this RCP.Â
The inclusion of 20NS "D" Eggloft altitude , would be a natural growth in the NRC event listings.Â Suggest that this would the the maximum total impulse limit, as it continues to support small, park flying activity for larger municipalities, where larger field are at a premium.
