Recommended Posts

A placeholder for the 3rd 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 Challenge 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 amaximum of 10m of 6/4mm surgical tubing and 50m of static line (minimum 30lb breaking strain). Lighter/smaller bungees may be used.

Fly safely! No slope soaring.

Superb morning but one monster flight. I had already broken my bungee twice due to thistles so the last flight launch was only half-hearted. Went away in a huge bump and had to fetch it back after about 8 minutes as it was at the limit of my eyesight. Managed to find 3 more lesser thermals but the last leg back was in a huge hole. Nonetheless, still got a 31:47. Very satisfying. 

So to kick off this Challenge

Hi Martyn,

Events have sadly conspired against me - I haven't been able to get out, and this afternoon I am off to Brussels, and not returning for two weeks. Hopefully someone else will challenge you for this Challenge, and I'll get back into it for the 4th challenge...!

Rgds.,
Paul
