Is there a simple/stable rule change for Q?

I was in on the early F1Q discussions and have always advocated for a
limited voltage, a minimum weight and a limited motor run with nothing
else. All of this is easy to verify with eyes, ears and a beam scale. Its
just like F1G, an event with a very stable set of rules for nearly 30 years
and still a wide variety of competitive models.

But I will never see my vision for F1Q implemented so here is a new
proposal that will at least bring stability: No rule changes in F1Q until
2024. If this rule is passed I promise I will finish the Maverick F1Q thats
been sitting uncovered in my shop for five years.

Mongolian Update

The Free Flight group on FB has an interesting background article about Free Flight in Mongolia written by Chimed Ganzorig

The previous Bulletin 0 for the World Champs drew some negative comments on the schedule because it had the World Champs processing and opening ceremony before the companion World Cup Contests. That meant that those who did not want to take part in the World Cup events would need to be in Mongolia for about 2 weeks. This is too long for some people with other work, family or financial commitments. We understand the schedule is still under review by the organizers.

F1A World Cup Battle

With one contest left, the Hanukkah Open in Israel on December 19-20

4 Aviv Balassiano ISR 195 MM-1 RB-1 EQ-1 KZ-3 SH-3 PI-4 ZA-4 SA-6 HG-9 SL-14 KW-14 NA-15

6 Mikhail Kosonozhkin RUS 187 KZ-1 NO-1 SZ-2 SE-3 RH-3 HG-4 MC-4 NL-7 JI-6 EL-5 EA-9 SB-10 HM-7 SL-5 BD-6 DK-16

So who has the most airline miles? Does Aviv have home field advantage? F1A events in Israel get a good turn out but will there be enough bonus points ?
