It is lead Andy. The snag is there is only room for 550g of the stuff.

Could you use the joiner, or is it solid? Another route might be to add ballast boxes to the wings.

Hi OPF.

We are in antique 3 piece wing territory here so that is not really a goer.

What I should do is the refurb on the Extreme which has a hollow joiner and two piece wing and a sewer pipe of a ballast tube!

Just reading through this, and I have to say I am stunned at how fast F3F has become in recent years - and so many guys that I remember flying with getting right down to near 30 second times! Well done chaps - quite remarkable - and low 30s times set on the Long Mynd - what on earth has happened? New models, new styles, or has everyone just turned into a bit of  Jedi?

New models, mostly. Wing section design has really changed in the last few years - so much so that asking ‘what’s the wing section?’ is no longer a sensible question.

Nice to hear that you’re back in action, Zim!

Hey John - wouldn't call it back in action just yet! But it's good to catch up and see what all of your exploits have been :-)

Super fast day on East Lomond hill, Fife yesterday, in our Scottish F3F Nationals.

Managed a new pb of 33.70   :) with my Jedi.

Would have been my first FTD as well until my (previously) good friend Mike, beat it with a 33.67  😭............

Hi all,

A British PBs table has now been created on the Great Britain Slope Racing Association (GBSRA) website under the "Contests" menu.  It includes the times notified to date. 

http://www.gbsra.co.uk/f3f-personal-best-times

I have agreed to periodically update this, so do continue to post improvements to your PB on this thread and provide your name, model, date, event, and slope.

For new or occasional F3F fliers the first challenge is to beat 45s to get onto the table - give it a go!

Hi Mike

Firstly, awesome for agreeing to do this mate.

Secondly, do you really need to beat 45 seconds to get onto the table? I thought it was simply a table to record your PB, no matter what that may be.

I see the incentive to push yourself to beat 45 sec, but for newbies, isn't it just nice to get your name on the list?

It will not be practical to enter all F3F entrants onto the list, so some kind of a threshold is needed.  On the previous sheet only  one time over 45s was noted,  so that seemed a reasonable threshold.   I will check opinions at a comp or two.

No problem buddy, that makes sense. I was just wondering if I had missed something because my first ever time on the list was a 50 odd.

Setting a threshold to make it manageable makes sense.

I count myself lucky to beat 50 secs, I can only dream of making the list!

Come on,Graham. You know you can do it!

Just wondering why I dropped out of the list (made the 45 Sec treshold). I know I'm not a resident but a member of GBSRA.

Cheers

Hi Stefan, 

There are a number of people missed of the list. I am sure if you  stake your claim it will get updated.

Regards

Hi Stefan

As we are now publishing the list slightly more formally, it has been a challenge to set criteria that will keep the list meaningful and consistent in the longer term, and primarily focussed on the GBR scene.  But yes, overseas fliers who are regular members of GBSRA should of course be included, so it is now updated.

Regards

Nigel
