1st 2019 2M Hi Start 14 day Duration Challenge

Recommended Posts

A placeholder for the 1st 2M Hi-Start 14 day duration Challenge for 2019

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 a maximum 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

Thanks for running this Martyn! I have my MadRES this year, so hopefully I can be more competitive ;)

Would like to have a go at these comps this year.

Now Martyn has very kindly lent me a correct bungee, I've been and bought a reel of 30lbf breaking strain monofilament line today, think I have an old parachute somewhere.

Will start the first comp with my old 1.5m Highlight HLG whilst I am installing spoilers onto an old Gentle Lady and doing the many repairs it needs before recovering it.

Then the plan is to build a much stronger RES model, but when that will happen is anyone's guess.

I used my Hilight last year to good effect. In the right conditions, there is no reason why you can't win slots with it!
