Power Boats timed by bbkRC & AMBrc
On Sunday 21st March 2004, bbk Software Ltd and the Multi Section of the Model Power Boat Association demonstrated the timing of RC Power Boats using AMBrc Identification equipment and bbkRC Race Timing software.
The boats are powered by 3.5, 7.5 and 15cc engines. AMBrc Personal Transponders were fitted in the rear of the boats and provided were detected by a pickup loop suspended from a 10m wide aluminium bridge supported by floating pontoons. This is the first time that electronic timing has been used to time RC Power Boats in the UK. Following this successful demonstration, the Multi Section of the MPBA will be using AMBrc/bbkRC to time their races.
