Kent Interclub Glider Comp to BARCS Multilaunch Rules

Event Calendar

Event details

Scores will count towards the BARCS League.

This is an open competition and non Kent club members are very welcome (entry fee £5).

Blacketts Farm SADMAC club field, CD on the day Derek Price. 

Please notify me via email (whitstable.nick@outlook.com) or PM on  forum no later than 6pm Friday 5 April with model class, and frequency if not 2.4 (Glider, Electric, Open, 100" etc)

The rules are a variant of BARCS Multilaunch but, for Electric launch gliders, the variant is slightly different from last year. As before, Electric launch gliders must be fitted with an AMRT (height limiter) which cuts the motor at 30 secs and records the launch height. Electric launch height remains at 175m but there will now be a penalty of 3 pts per metre for Electric launches exceeding it. Most pilots will want to set AMRTs to cut a little below 175m. It is fine instead to use F5J firmware and cut the motor manually.

Check in 09:30 latest and be ready for Pilots Briefing at 09:45 with the competition starting at 10:00 sharp.

A minimum of 4 rounds and a maximum of 6 rounds will be flown
