As light starts to disappear is when the aperture starts to open up, but f1.4 is maybe not so good for trying to focus on people flying everywhere through the air while I'm making sure not to get my own block knocked off.
Then the ISO is going to start creeping upward, but my personal limit is around 2500 on a 5D and even then it's not great at a certain point.
