A reminder that our Autumn Glider Comp is on Saturday March 17th starting from midday. The field will be open for sport flying as usual in the morning and then restricted to glider competitors in the afternoon.
The glider events will be:
- electric glider - 5 minute target flight, motor run time in seconds gets deducted, as do seconds over and under 5 mins, and a spot landing bonus is added.
- thermal glider - from a bungee launch, 5 minute target flight with penalties for over and under, and spot landing bonus
There will be a few rounds in each category. If you have a glider, come and give it a go. A lot of the ARTF foam gliders are VERY competitive now so this isn't a comp that plays into the hands of the expensive competition machines.
Also, Doug has got the glider tug working so, if you have a glider that can be towed up and release the towline, let Clive or Doug know. If we have enough, there might be a towline glider event one day!
