Does this wording mean that if I declare and option, and it doesn't work, there's no penalty?
As far as I'm aware, you can't have negative mission points anyways. The penalty for a failed operation has (again, as far as I'm aware) been under 52.12.2 "General Flight." Penalties for failed mission effects is outside the scope of this RCP.
I like the idea, though to clarify, which judge is responsible for verifying that the mission points are applicable to the model? For example, which judge gets to reject cluster points for the old Estes Patriot :-)? More commonly in "true" scale vs sport scale, mission is supposed to be relevant to the specific round being modeled.
I like this proposal. If it is possible to consider its application to NRC flying, it would be very helpful for the various Contest Directors around the country to have an idea of what mission point values should be. Many will never have judged a scale flight and the original outline of the event was that they would only have to judge the qualification of the flight - the flight points were all or nothing. This would insure a more consistent value of mission points across the field in NRC flying during the year. CDs could just note whether declared mission events occurred or not and the number points would come from the judging team's assessment of the data package.Â
