Location: 

From A2 at Bapchild, turn left (right if approaching from Faversham) into Hempstead lane. Go left at the next road through Tong Mill and continue past the church then the golf club and turn right at the next junction, Blacketts Road. Continue along road until you reach the farm entrance gate.

The nearest postcode is ME9 9AU or Using What3Words (phone app) with location headers.marshes.arch

Entrance to the farm is by electronically controlled gates, which requires a SADMAC member to open. Please call 077393 20806 or 07941 814019 and we will open the gates remotely. 

 

 

Additional Info:  

The rules are a variant of BARCS Multi-launch 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.

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