Went to the field in the forlorn hope of someone being there.. not to be.

FIELD SECURITY .... The gate padlock issue seems to have been resolved with 'farmers' twine' !! This is now the only security & whoever has done the job has been to …

duration flights comp

Post by Guest on Tue Dec 09, 2008 12:31 pm

I was going to call it...<How long can you stay up,> but those with minds that are not as white as snow would have had a field day.So what about a comp for all.A timed motor flight say 30 secs by a Glider then soaring the longest flight wins.This could be for all,even those needing a Buddy lead.I have a Early Bird Glider,elevator/rudder I will put a Brushless in it.Happy for all to use this. This not an original idea nicked it from another site. Rolling Eyes

I'll join in!

Those on Mode 2 can use my Graphite as well Smile 30 seconds of motor run should see it up at around 600metres (1950 feet!) altitude, and a glide time of around 10 minutes assuming no lift is about Wink

Andy with half the height of yours I could double your glide time easily.

I think this is a great idea, a classification could of course limit the models to a maximum wingspan, this would kick Andy, myself & anyone else with the pure electric duration gliders into touch.

with the agreement of the commitee
