Load Cells - Advice from the Chief Measurer

A commercial fittings supplier is promoting the use of loadcells on sheets and rigging on the Flying Fifteen.

Such devices communicate with an output device (either a mobile phone or specific marine electronic equipment) using Bluetooth LE . This involves making radio communications in a range of up to 100 metres. The devices are battery powered.

The Technical Committee has reviewed the compliance of such devices with Class Rule 14  Prohibitions, and concludes that .....

  • There is non compliance with Rule 14.5 (Radio Communications)
  • There is non compliance with Rule 14.7 (electric devices not permitted except in Rule 14.4)

Please ensure that these devices are not installed on a Flying Fifteen whilst racing.
