Think I've found how to do it....

And I don't see anything in the Piker Class racing rules about not using an autopilot!  ;D

Some points. 
You better install a rudder as configuring to bank and yank turns isn't an option.
At high speeds +- 1M resolution might not be enough.
Can I watch your first flight?
Yea 400W/lb should about do it.. But wouldn't a nice round 500 be better?

@sihinch if you're going to put in GPS, might as well throw in a TCAS system ;D. I'm sure some people would find that very useful..
Truly superior pilots are those who use their superior judgment to avoid those situations where they might have to use their superior skills.
