Hi guys,
Let's discuss here the upcoming WCh.

For starters I have some travel-related questions:
1. Rubber: check-in or carry-on?
2. Can I bring a little bottle of acetone?

Carry on with you things that you can't do without:
- motors, rubber
- dummy motors, blast shield
- winder, torque meter, model stand
- models, of course
- stopwatch

I don't carry on acetone.

I have put my tiny needle-nose bottles of glue and acetone into my toiletry bag, going into the checked-in bag. To my understanding, some cosmetics like nail polish remover (essentially acetone) are allowed in the carry-on stuff, and I have always been able to get those through.

Unfortunately I cannot test this in a few weeks, as my work situation is such that I need to skip this Championships.

Guys,
What was the procedure for checking motor weigh in 2014?

How the weight of lube and rings is accounted?

Say, I want to make motors 420-423mg dry and 2 rings are 25mg.

Motors are weighed after the flight.  If the motor has o-rings and is overweight, you can cut off the o-rings to reach the 400mg maximum.  If the motor is still overweight, the flight will be disqualified and you will get a 0 for the round. 

I would recommend using wire spacers instead of o-rings, otherwise each motor is only good for 1 official flight.

Another ?, mostly for the US team.
Were there outlets for 110V plugs or I need to bring the adapter?

Romania uses 220V and different plug from US. You need adapter.

Sorry you're going to miss the WC. Life does seem to get in the way at times.

The blog for the 2018 Indoor World Championships is now up and running at:

https://thef1dblog.wordpress.com/

The blog mainly concerns the exploits of the US team but will report as much news as we get.  Jake Palmer, who will be at Slanic helping Kang Lee, will provide pictures and on-site reporting.
