Using What3Words (phone app) with location “fewest.timer.sketching” See attached images for field location Additional Info:  

The rules are BARCS Multi-launch , 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 with 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 weather permitting
