Recommended Posts

A placeholder for the 3rd 2M Hi-Start 14 day duration Challenge for 2020

Please submit your score below. The clock will start when the first score is submitted.

This is a for fun challenge, anyone with a bungee-launched glider up to 2 metres wingspan and the standard Hi-Start can post a time.

Object: Fly your 2 metre glider for as long as possible from a flat field, the person who's time is unbeaten for 14 days 'wins' and a new challenge starts.

Rules: Launches must be made from the standard Challenge Hi-Start bungee. Flight times begin when line releases from the towhook and the model must land in the field for times to count. While the object is to encourage F3-RES types, any model up to 2 metre span may be flown (F3-RES, foam, full house aileron mouldie) but please state the type of model with your time.

The standard Hi-Start bungee is a maximum of 10m of 6/4mm surgical tubing and 50m of static line (minimum 30lb breaking strain). Lighter/smaller bungee rubber may be used.

Fly safely! No slope soaring

Got out for an hour late this afternoon.  A gap in between rain showers.  5 flights, the best was the last flight at 4:38 just before the rain restarted.

Very cloudy with a 5-7 mph wind blowing straight over the farm house (strictly no fly zone unless its too high to notice - it never got that high).

Really starting to enjoy flying the new Mad Hatter..

 

Martyn Kinder - F3-RES - Mad Hatter 2 - 4:38

 

I do expect that score to be beaten though.

Well, if it is, then the weather from this weekend (Sunday especially) will be the time to do it! 🙂
