This was my only complete run during the competition . I had plenty of good runs during practice. It did great navigating around the barrels. There was a spraypainted circle for each barrels position this year so the spots did not change from other people moving them during the day.
I was using a pixhawk with dual gps on a Traxxas slash platinum. Unsure why the the throttle was surging this run, other run videos it was smooth.
I have some more practice run videos but I hit a deer and took my car out of commission and didn’t retrieve it before dropping off at repair place. Still 1000 miles away from home.
The course was a bit harder this year. Not many in Peleton class were able to make a complete run. I think only 3 did. I got 3rd place. Mine did good correcting from crashes unless it ended upside down. I need to work on getting my turns sharper. Also need to review my footage after each run. I didnt know i was hitting the median since i couldnt see it behind shrubbery from my viewpoint.
