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. 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.

This event will be using Gliderscore eScoring via smart phones.  We will print and issue a score record card for you to record your round scores and set up your phones via QR matrix

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