This is steming from another post.

Is there any rules that state that a person or persons can not fly fast around a field with foam airplanes?

If three people have warbirds and chase each other and fly fast around the field in full control.

Is this grounds for not being safe?

We even generally call what we are going to be doing, eg: low pass, loop etc. to keep viewers / pilots aware.

Is it the responsibility of the people at the flight station to wait till it is over or at least have a chance to land and wait 4 mins for it to be over.

I spend too much time building and refuse to go in the air if EDFs or helicopters are in the air as risk not to damage my model.

for two years we have been doing this with only one tail nipped. No crashes, etc.

Re: High Speed Flying

As long as you leave enough time between sessions for other pilots to get in a flight too. Do not hog the airspace and do not start one of your sessions while the slow and stately are flying. If you announce your intensions I think that you will find that most people will get out of your way. Being reasonable is usually a place to start. I would plan on doing scale combat at a time when there is very few people there. I would approach the club to assign a block of air time for this type of usage.

Most of it is respect for your fellow fliers. Some guys don't have any.
