Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Registration is now open for the BMFA League reserve date to be run on the 25th October.  Registration will close on Wednesday 21st October.  Please complete the entry form from the first link below, you can also view the entries from the second link.

Form: https://drive.google.com/open?id=166Guzvf5YxxbwWU1KSIolk3qtA9iUI698_a86SnoqfM

Entry List: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Z4zC6K914QDX0Yhn0L1a7436O2cZEBLjw5d8LNYzK7c/edit#gid=254762863

The reserve date will be held at one of 2 locations on the 25th October.  If Sunday the 18th October contest does not run, then Eastbourne will be used for the reserve date, however if it does run then the location will be Hole Of Horcum.

My recommendation will be to register then update me if you are unable to make the venue OR wait until after this Sunday to register, it is your choice.

Thanks

Martin

Sounds like a genuine mistake Tony, and not by much - I suggest you email Martin direct

Lovelly Autumn day, light winds, hazy sunshine, and dry!  Must have been reasonably warm as Mark T was still in shirt sleeves, short sleeves to boot!  

BUT, out of the 10 pilots who turned up, only 9 were able to fly. Despit the stella efforts of Simon T, we weren't able to meet the minimum 10, so the comp won't towards the league. So the moral to the story is  - do a check list, and make sure your Transmitter is on it!

However, we did run 13 rounds, 9 pilots completing 8 rounds, and then 7 pilots flying another 5. Proceedings finished around 14:45, as conditiond began to deteriorate. 

Dont have the results in front of me at the mo, but will issue as soon as I can download them

Regard

Jon

Well done guys on getting the extra rounds in, Simon dropped me of just before 6:30pm and still has another 45minutes to go.  Real shame we could get a comp in. Beautiful day on the moors .

thanks

Gutted for Clayton - long way to travel to no avail. (I don't really understand the minimum number rule - 9 worked fine as did the subsequent 7). Really enjoyable day out though, nice to get some non-comp course time to experiment a bit. 

Looking forward to some good winter league comps.

My recollection on the numbers rule is that we increased them during a period when a few comps that didn't have much chance of completing, due to the number of pilots entered and changeable weather conditions, threatened to complete after  some pilots had either gone home or not turned up due to their low expectations.

 

From my prospective, and I realise I am only one of many;

I plan my weekends around family and flying. Comp weekends are accepted by the family right up until they become sudden changes to others plans.

So reserve dates are more of a problem for me.

An event shifted to a Saturday rather than being cancelled and running as a reserve on a different weekend would work better for me.

So What happened to Clayton???

He left his Taranis Tx at home - I lent him my Jeti and spare Rx, but we are different stick modes.  We got a very basic flyable set up, but in the light and crossed conditions he had a test flight, but was not comfortable to start a comp under those conditions - Being wrong stick mode just made it too dangerous (e.g. reaction to a cut etc.).  We did all we could, but Clayton made the (correct) decision to pull out.  It can't be helped - we've all done a similar thing, but open Tx makes it harder to offer a replacement Tx etc.  There were no hard feelings - I knew when driving up with Martin that with only 10 pilots there was a chance the comp wouldn't run, but we didn't expect it would turn out this way.

That all sounds ****, at least you where all on the hill flying, i spent most of my day driving down to Southampton for a meeting and back again.

8 hours driving plus a 2 hour meeting. (on a Sunday)  I haven't flown since the Welsh open.
