F5J - Southern Area - 15th April 2018 - Lt. Bentley, Essex

Recommended Posts

tonym

1st round in this year’s Southern Area BMFA F5J League

Venue is Little Bentley Polo Club, Rectory Road, Essex, CO7 8SN.

Your model must have an approved height limiting/data logging device (AMRT) which must be able to show the max height your model goes to during its motor run time plus 10 seconds after your motor is shut off.

The limiting function must be set to allow maximum 30seconds motor run time, and the height limiting function must either be disabled or set to 300m.
Motor restart is permitted at any time during flight for safety reasons, but will result in a zero score for that round.

Two classes of model can be entered, either Open or 2Metre but only one entry permitted.
Prizes awarded on the day and points scored will go towards the National League.

The competition will be run to BMFA Local Rules, 6 rounds will be flown if conditions permit and there will not be a flyoff.
Entry fee £10.00 (BMFA requirement) payable on the day.
Proof of BMFA membership (card is sufficient) required.
 
Timing on the day may vary, and all/any help to set up the field will be appreciated.
But the plan is as usual, book in from 9am.  First flight around 10am.

Does anyone mind if I bring along a small drone and get some aerial footage of the comp.  Will ensure it doesnt interfere with anyones rounds, but think some footage of take offs and landings would make for an excellent short film?

Thanks

Personally I think its a great idea, would love to see something other than the usual "glider leaving pilots hand" shot.  Would also appreciate it if we could have a clip or two to add to the Ipswich Club Web site. (see www.IRCMC.co.uk)

No problem John.

If I can get some decent footage, happy for you to have a copy for your website.

Hi,

I also would like to take part at the competition.
I have written with Peter Mitchell about it.

My Name is Julian Benz and I'm from Germany.
I haven't a BMFA number.
For sure I have an international insurance but in Germany.
This is my FAI Number: GER 3872

I would like to fly in the open class with 2,4 Ghz.

Thanks

Julian
