We welcome you all to the fun filled nights of racing at Amain Hobbies. Here are a couple steps to take to ensure you are prepared and we have a great night of racing.

  1. Race fee of $5. Pay at check in on Race night. There will be a drawing before the Mains. The Pilot name drawn will decide which race will be the Money Race. Winner of that Race will win 50% of the Entry fee pot.
  2. Please Check In to get your Video Frequency. Make sure your Video channel/frequency is correctly set on your copter and goggles/monitor before you arrive. If you have been assigned a Frequency you cannot use on your copter or goggles, Email chicofpvracing@gmail.com to have it reassigned. If you need assistance setting your frequency arrive early.Frequencies we use are 5685, 5760, 5800, 5860
  3. Make sure all your gear is charged before you arrive. Power is available for charging on site, but we cannot delay races waiting for charges to finish.
  4. Listen to the Heat callouts during the races so you know when you are up to Spot and Race (when on deck you spot for your same video frequency).
