    Attention! Due to the low number of non-compliant aircraft, it has been decided to cancel the tournament. I'm sorry to announce this. Probably the tournament was too ambitious and raised many rules that could be difficult to meet or neglect. What is learned in this case will serve to make better tournaments in the future. Probably less ambitious, simpler and perhaps more attractive to the whole community. I feel again this outcome and hope you continue to trust me for the next tournament. It will take some time to publish a new tournament, as I want it to be original, easy for all and especially attractive and fun. Thank you all. A hug!

    @mikoyanster I have a question regarding afterburners and extra gun (not specified guns) that I would like to put on this build. Can I add either gun or afterburner if they can only be used if activated? The afterburner would only be for human use. The same with the gun. I don't have to install these items if it will disqualify my entry, but the "activated only gun" is part of the build's aesthetics. I basically would like it to be tournament ready and fun for players too.
