Good flying this afternoon at the #Orme on this the shortest day of 2017. Wind was bang on the fav. slope probably about 25mph. Must put a ballast bolt in the model. Flight curtailed by the short day length !

August clubnight - Thursday 4th August.

Post by Andy Sayle on Tue Aug 02, 2016 7:59 pm

Roll up, Roll up!

It's clubnight competition time, this Thursday. The official official has decided to re-run the climb and glide comp. Any model can be used, no matter what.

The rules are simple:

1. Climb for 30 seconds (either from a hand launch or ROG).
2. Cut motor, and glide for as long as you can.
3. Land, and the timer stops. More time in the air = more points.
4. The spot landing bonus points will be available.
5. Mystery bonus points will be available too, as deemed fit by the official official.

I'll be there from approximately 6pm. Start at 6.30pm.

Oh, and just to make sure everyone is aware, you don't need a special model, you don't need to sit out flying for the night. Come along, fly anyway. Just because the competition is on, doesn't mean you can't fly if you don't want to enter!

See you Thursday.

Just a last minute update. The weather is looking good, the cloud cover is reducing, the wind has dropped off too. The chance of rain is slim to none, so it should be a good night for a Climb and Glide comp!

See you there!
