1st 2018 2m Hi-Start 14 Day Duration Challenge


Recommended Posts

A placeholder for the 1st 2m Hi-Start 14 day duration Challenge for 2018

Please submit your score below. The clock will start when the first score is submitted.


This is a for fun challenge, anyone with a bungee-launched glider up to 2 metres wingspan and the standard Hi-Start can post a time.

Object: Fly your 2 metre 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: Launches must be made from the standard Hi-Start bungee. Flight times begin when line releases from the towhook and the model must land in the field for times to count. While the object is to encourage F3-RES types, any model up to 2 metre span may be flown (F3-RES, foam, full house aileron mouldie) but please state the type of model with your time.

The standard Hi-Start bungee is maximum of 10m of 6mm surgical tubing and 50m of static line (minimum 30lb breaking strain). Lighter/smaller bungees may be used.

Fly safely! No slope soaring.

I can't believe how wet and awful this winter has been. Our field is still a mudbath but I did get 3 flights in this morning. 

14/4/18 Mad Hatter F3-RES 7:05.

Nice big bump and quite high but a huge infill killed the flight on the way back

Plus two dreadful flights in holes. Got fed up going splash splish so went and flew my newly electrified Bubble Dancer with a best of 17 minutes something.

OK, it looks like I won the first round. Apologies, I just realised I didn't do the table as per convention


I'll start another empty post for the next round..
