    Default Naviga FE World Championships 2019

    Hi,


    We had the last FE Naviga World Championships in Italy on 01-10.08.2019.



    You can see some pictures about here:

    It's very important in 2020. we can run in all FE categories only with Limiter Electronics.




    Mini Eco, Mini Mono, Mini Hydro with 21 Wh

    Mono-1, Hydro-1, Eco Expert with 60 Wh

    Mono-2, Hydro-2 with 120 Wh

    FSR-E with 180 Wh


    The Mono-2 is similar with P-Mono category but the running time is here 6 Min with 120 Wh (about 5400 mAh from your bigger LiPo)



    Thanks

    Limiters are still optional for the mini classes, and it is just as well, I'm jealous of the room you have in your Mini Mono, I can barely fit a MLM limiter in my mini hydro with shortened wires and 3.5mm connectors, I think if they pick any other limiter/connector combination for the hat system I will have to run a limiter for local races and buy underweight batteries for Naviga races.

    You might be interested in this Mini Mono, it is barely recognisable now as it has been cut and shut so much, but it started off as one of your Joker Eco boats and runs beautifully as a stepped mini mono. It is pictured here running at a UK SAWs event but it is great on the oval too.

    Naviga doesn't race anything we race in IMPBA or NAMBA.

    It's just information from Future


    Yes with minis the limiter is still optional but it will come as well because it does't matter if you take with you 115g 1900mAh 20C or 175g 2200mAh 80C + 27g limiter. (at the top of this category you fight for every gramme in the build)


    At the moment it's easier and thought for beginners.


    I love your mini mono design It reminds me of some grotesque Englander cars at Goodwood

    Thanks

    Hi Doug,

    This info to read from Naviga homepage:

    (It's from Walter Geens Section leader)

    Time for some figures in regard to the last WC:
    In total 248 people participated with 518 boats registered (not including the Team boats). In total 171 limiters were registered, divided into 76 eLim, 72 KLW, 17 MDLE-4 and 6 TSS limiters. 171 registered limiters were registered to 89 individuals (several people have more than 1 limiter in use) but also knowing that I made about 70 class changes for people who use the limiter in more than 1 class, and 79 boats of the 518 registered boats do not use a limiter (F1 and F3 classes) then the conclusion is that for the first highest-level competition almost half the boats (even slightly more than half) were equipped with a limiter. Hence off course the decision to go that way only in the future. A massive thanks to all who showed the trust and vision to go that route!
    Not a single case of ‘trying to cheat the system’ took place, all seals were intact at all times, and all values remained correct at all times. Now off course comes the time to fine-tune the check-up system so that by the next big event the procedure of checking and sealing becomes a routine, and rules out any form of cheating to give everybody the same fighting chance!

    All the racing we use limiters for is either racing for 6 minutes on 1p or 15 minutes on 2p so 100A is plenty, and any higher would be adding unnecessary size and weight, which is a big deal to us, as with limited power the boat's efficiency is very important.

    Steve Neu and SM Modelbau make Power and energy limiters capable of higher amp draws for F5D pylon racers and F5B glider racers, that would be much more suitable for NAMBA/IMBRA/AMPBA sprint racing.

    Joseph, there's nothing American about me or Jim, we are both from the south of England.

    Hi,

    Here is a movie about Eco Expert Finale
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6Lc...ature=youtu.be




    You can hesitate about, it's a technical sport to produce adrenaline or just toys for big boys.

    (I mean after my experience that the water was clear, difficult and hard for all)

    Why do you need a limiter?

    Hi Caterpillar, That's very simple: finally, all you have the exactly same energy level to could run until 6 Min (at FSR-E class 15 Min).

    1 pcs pack is enough for 3 seasons

    Of course, it can be more simple still without limiter in the MINI classes for beginners and juniors
