A placeholder for the 3rd 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 bungee rubber may be used.

Fly safely! No slope soaring

Well done Guy. That is an excellent score.  I am away - back next weekend. hopefully, I'll get chance  to get a challenge flight in but that will take some beating

Appreciate the comment but honestly, if I’d launched my fridge freezer at midday today I would have struggled to get it down again

Well done Guy. Unfortunately I have had a a bad cold/flu this week and not really been up to getting out.  I'll update the table and post.

I won't be in the same place as my gliders and time to fly until July :(. Looks like I will have some catching up to do!
