Changes should in fact be small. Mostly tweaks to address the minor issues at the trials or hypothesized problems in interpretation. Overall helicopter duration ran well at the regional, state and national trials last year.

As far as getting a jump on next year, last years national trial rules are a VERY good place to get started.

What are the advantages of having a longer/shorter motorstick (greate/less distance between the two rotors)? Stability?

Also, In a dual counter-rotating rotor design, do the two rotors have to be aligned directly on top of each other, or is it okay if the top one is further away from the center of the motorstick than the bottom fixed one?
