TR2016 is organized entirely by volunteers. There is no profit made from the event. Surplus of the event, if any, will be donated to the Hong Kong Radio Control Soaring Society (HKRCSS). HKRCSS is registered as a non-profit organization under the Societies Ordinance of Hong Kong SAR Government. Its aim is to promote RC soaring in Hong Kong.

All radios shall use the legal frequencies listed in the Hong Kong Tables of Frequency Allocations issued by the Office of Communications Authority of the Government of Hong Kong SAR. The following frequencies are allocated for radio controlled model aircraft in Hong Kong. We highly recommend using 2.4GHz for easier frequency control.

35MHz : 35.150, 35.160, 35.170, 35.180, 35.190, 35.200, 35.210 and 35.220
40MHz : 40.665, 40.675, 40.685 and 40.695
72MHz : 72.010, 72.130, 72.170, 72.190, 72.210 and 72.270
2.4GHz spread spectrum.

Note on 72MHz:
72MHz is a busy channel in Hong Kong, shared with high power land mobile transceivers and sometimes could cause interference to certain model channels. We suggest avoid using 72MHz.

There are awards for teams. Each team consists of 3 competitors. The country of the members of a team need not be the same. Each competitor can only belong to one team. You do not have to fly as a team, but if you want to, please include the team name in the registration.

Due to the availability of time for competition, the number of contestants is limited to 62. Maximum contestants of each country are:

Hong Kong (Host country) : 16
Korea : 12
Singapore : 12
Taiwan : 12
Other countries : 10

Deadline for registration will be August 31, 2016. Registration will be closed due to over subscription.
(Sep 7, 2016 update: Since there are still vacant places on the list, we decided to extend the registration period to September 30, 2016.)

There is a waiting list. If there are still vacancies after August 31, the vacancies will be openned for all on the waiting list regardless of the country. Registration deadline for waiting list is September 30, 2016.
