    Multiplex Alpina Canopy & Tail

    You will not need much of that. The Alpina is very efficient and will soar in very little wind. The 2mm rear wire is 39.5mm from the trailing edge and the 3mm front wire is 79.5mm from the trailing edge.

    Sorry, last question. Can you give me the dimension from the T/E to either the pivot or rear joiner? Cheers

    Multiplex Alpina Canopy & Tail

    That's great, many thanks. The canopy arrived this morning, so apart from the canopy frame I'm home and dry. I just need the wind now. Cheers

    Multiplex Alpina Canopy & Tail

    Hi Simon. My weekend got away from me but here are your Alpina tail measurements. Span 364mm. Root chord 122mm. Tip chord 82mm. The trailing edge is straight with all the 40mm of taper on the leading edge. It is a German aeroplane so obviously it is all metric.

    Make that "reversible prop" And for FAI F3-oddities - how about F3Q (was F3I) ? - as done in France. Probably about time it evolved into aero-tow GPS triangle - just like full-sized - but smaller - and RC. Phil.

    Who the? What the?

    In another thread on the BARCS forum : - https://www.barcs.co.uk/forums/topic/9879-f3p-wow/?tab=comments#comment-173546 There's a discussion that points out that the Class name F5K is already taken. If FAI recognition of electric powered 'F3K' type aircraft is an aim or just to avoid confusion, this class/ forum section needs another name.

    The organisation who writes the rules, names their class. The FAI, through CIAM, allocate the codes to recognised FAI classes. Who has written the rules? It would be worth them finding a new name to avoid confusion in the future. PS I have just spotted a Forum section called F5K on here - further 'F5K' discussion should go there.

    Freestyler 6

    Hi Aubry, like the Air France colour scheme I had another good competition with mine at Levisham a few weeks back (7-10ms variable air 40-50s times) and it felt good even in the less good air. Following another session with it at the weekend in 10ms on a really good hill (Bishop), I am working on a colour scheme to order another one. As my confidence with it grows, I am getting more aggressive in the turn, which it likes and it is definately really quick and maintains speed well through a run. I have flown it back to back with the FS5 a couple of times now too (although not against the clock) and it feels quicker in a straight line and around the turns. The only thing I am not sure about is how it will fly in low wind (3-5ms). From my first flight experience, I suspect the 5 will be better in low wind. But more experimentation is needed. So far, I have decided that this will be my model in mid to strong conditions and as such, I am going to order another strong one (as these are the conditions when you are most likely to damage a model).

    Hi SP I think, like most things in life, they'll wait for the new class to actually exist before they allocate it a number Regards Pete BARCS1702

    Here's the list from the CIAM pages of the FAI.... https://www.fai.org/sites/default/files/documents/2017_ciam_classes_v21-1-2017_0.pdf F3x started as RC classes and F5x came later as RC electric powered - initially as F5B and F5D, being electric versions of F3B and F3D. F3 and F5 have developed down different paths since and F5K is indeed already taken as indoor electric pylon racing. F5A doesn't exist, F3A RC aerobatic aircraft can use I.c. or electric power.
  18. Thanks for the interest. Now sold

    2020 Dates?

    Monz, you”re very kind and you can do your share. Let's hope others will come out of hibernation and see this thread as time goes by. Perhaps other offers will then come in. The Radioglide and Nats dates are booked as the Sat Sun Mon but the F3K day (of the three) isn't confirmed yet. Hockliffe looks OK but I'm waiting formal confirmation. Little Bentley can happen if there's support for it as a non-eurotour event. I'm in good health thanks.

    Hello Simon, good to 'see' you here. Must have been a strong thermal to get a Marlin up there!

    F3A models were all I.c. powered at one time.

    F3P Wow

    F5K should be indoor electric racing... Anyone else seen the electric powered F3K models that are being introduced? They’re claiming to be F5K

    F3P Wow

    I think you'll find you are actually allowed to use ic engines in f3p. I assume no one does though. You can use ic or electric in f3c as well. Anyway good video.
  25. SilentPilot

    F3P Wow

    In that case it's all nonsense. In every other format F3 is glider F5 is electric. Why is this not F5P?
