    Well done Mark Treble for your 2018 league win. I think your swift recovery to success is worthy of a feature article in "The Lancet"

    Strange Problem wih Altis V4+

    That implies that you have separate connections for positive and negative. The only faults that I can think off that lead to a large current down the Altis ground wire involve one of the power wires from the ESC touching one of the battery connections. Steve

    Thanks, Nigel, for posting these position charts. I find them very illuminating, and quicker than looking at the spreadsheet.

    Well done, Mark. It clearly has little to do with genes!

    F3-RES & 2M Hi Start Postals in 2019

    Hi Martyn, I think participation will be low based on the current level of interest. Personally, adding to the complexity of the challenge makes it less likely that I will get out there (landing tape etc) I'd be willing to have a go but I wouldn't want to replace the duration challenge at the moment. I can see the advantages of practicing skills for an actual competition however. Would it be worth putting feelers out to see if there is enough interest to arrange an actual contest in the spring? Perhaps alongside an established event. Jon

    BMFA League Reserve 2 16th September

    I really enjoyed Sunday's flying, with reasonably consistent conditions allowing honing of technique. Good consistent flying by Tony, Mark and Ian to top the day, well flown. Mark has now put the Results spreadsheet on the GBSRA site. Here is a position progress chart of the day. BMFA L2 White Sheet Charts.pdf For those who didn't receive the facebook message, the 2018 League results have been notified on GBSRA Facebook page. Roll on the winter leagues, and hopefully some stronger flying conditions after a couple of quiet years!

  16. Lubos Pazderka designed this model, some may remember his “Eraser,” and this particular Fazer was imported via ICARE Models some ten years ago It has a Quabeck HQW2/8 wing section of 3.14metre (124”) span, weighs just over 2 kilos “all-up,” and was designed to be competitive with the Pike Superior, Breta NYX and the Icon in its day and to be used for F3J and/or F3B competition This is the last moulded model I’ll be selling this year and it will be the hardest to let go…if it doesn’t sell, I’ll be happy to keep it…… In my opinion this is the ideal “high end” sports model, and despite its age, it compares very favourably with more modern designs. It has provision for ballast, home-made wing bags and is sold in ready to fly condition. I can include a (35mHz) receiver if wanted, and it comes complete with six analogue servos, full wiring loom, receiver battery and switch This model is VERY well kept and has not been crashed, broken, repaired or used in competitions. It is literally “buy it and fly it” and its performance will not disappoint It is NOT an F3F model but it grooves around the sky on the hill(s) in a really smooth and precise manner and will not disappoint even advanced/experienced pilots Priced to sell at £275.00 firm - I will not be considering a lower price, but, I assure you it this model is well worth it….. please PM me if you are interested Regards Pete BARCS1702

    Tim Shaw

    Saturday was a day of mixed feelings as I helped our sadly departed friend Tim Shaw fulfill his last wish. This was that his ashes be scattered from a glider onto his beloved Tinkers slope site. I was told about his wish from his wife soon after his passing and she asked me if I could make it happen. I promised her that by hook or by crook Tim would have his final wishes met. Obviously for such a procedure permission needs to be obtained from a landowner and fortunately the owners of Tinkers were both very obliging and sympathetic with the request and even offered to move any livestock away which may cause problems for us. What was then required was a glider capable of carrying a payload of ashes and a way of releasing them. Fortunately there was a very old glider which was gathering dust and cobwebs in my dad's shed. I designed and made this glider back in the late 70's so its wide boxy fuselage was ideal for the task of carrying ashes. It didn't take too long to modify the model to have a releasing hatch in the bottom of the fuselage. The next task was to try it out and I did that on Royd Moor a few weeks ago using some dry soil as a substitute for ashes. This all worked fine and I worked out that it was best to fly below horizon level to scatter the ashes on the actual slope without them being blown back over the hill. Tim's widow's wishes were that the scattering of the ashes was to be a family event only so on Saturday I met them and we walked up to the main west facing slope of Tinkers. Tim was loaded into the fuselage and he was launched on his final flight over Tinkers. While making a low pass across the slope I released the hatch and the ashes were gracefully scattered and blown along a length of the slope. It really was a moving sight for all of us there. My task completed, I departed and left the family time alone to scatter the rest of the ashes by hand over the same slope, looking out towards Holme Moss. For me personally it was an occasion with mixed emotions as both Tim and I had many an enjoyable hour on Tinkers but at least his final wish has been fulfilled. I feel immensely privileged that I could make his final wish a reality for both him and his family and that he will now be forever on the slope that he loved. RIP Tim

  22. This link to a map of the site was in the posting from last year: Site map [I'm hoping that I can make this one but will have to confirm later in the week]
  23. Lets see if the link below to Google Maps works Gate to Hockliffe Site There are two gates into the site, please close both gates behind you, even if they were open when you got there. If the link doesn't work hopefully someone else can figure it out.

    If no ESC was connected, then what was the Altis connected to? Steve
