F5J+ RRR fly-ins

Recommended Posts

Another great day of flying - though the scores aren't great. Several pilots testing different ballast, others just having a poor day picking the right bit of sky.

The matrix was arranged with 2 drops, one when people were the timing system plus your worst flight score, I had a motor restart so got another zero (round 3).

John with his own design and built glider gave us all a whooping - again!

Hot - too hot, a good breeze helped cool us a little but probably around 30C in the shade most of the day.

Air quite fickle through the day too, various problems for many pilots as well as poor air left several of us with short flights. Still a good day, another test of the eScoring system which worked well again.

Thanks to everyone that came to Little Bentley, thanks to those that helped set up and breakdown the field equipment - many hands make light work.

Thanks for all your efforts, Tony, on a very hot & humid day. Looks like my malfunction in the last round cost me dear. Never mind, nice to meet up & fly competitively again. Plus thanks to pete Mitchell for picking up my chair.
