It's gonna be interesting. Even more interesting is seeing how many current RCs won't be able to pass the skills eval. I work with one RC who can't ride worth a crap. I've seen him nearly crash in demos... one of them was while demoing riding around the perimeter of Ex 5
... what I affectionately call our "NASCAR practice."
