Rather late with this post as I have been away. 
Off to Buckminster this morning for the "DLG - come and try it day and workshop ", likely to be windy but will see if anyone can improve on the 5:27

This is a for fun challenge, anyone with a hand-launch glider that conforms to the F3K (up to 1.5m) or Mosquito (less than 1m) class can post a time.
Object: Fly your F3K or Mosquito class hand launch glider for as long as possible from a flat field, the person who's time is unbeaten for 14 days 'wins' and a new challenge starts.

Rules: Fly safely. No slope soaring.

Post your times as follows:-.
Pilot Name, F3K or Mosquito class, model name, length of flight minutes and seconds, plus date of flight. (Please do the posting within 48 hours of the flight)

I had a go this afternoon, 4:42 my best, much too windy really, but quite active. Fingers froze in the end, thought I'd stop while my model was in one piece and still in the same county. See what the weekend brings.

Well done Dave.  I went out yesterday lunchtime and conditions were cloudy but quite pleasant.  Most flights were 3 mins+ and best of the session was 5.47.  I lost signal a couple of times whilst far away and lowish causing a few heart in the mouth moments and limiting times.  Requires further investigation.....

Simon Jones, F3K, 5 mins 47 secs, 23/10/17
