You are invited to Kent Interclub Glider 3 Multi Launch competition to be held 30 June 2019 at Leigh Park Farm, near Tonbridge.  This is an open competition and non-Kent Interclub club members are very welcome (entry fee £5. Scores count towards the BARCS Multi Launch League).

Please notify me via email (whitstable.nick@outlook.com) or PM on this forum no later than 6pm Fri 28 June with model class, and frequency if not 2.4 (Glider, Electric, Open, 100" etc) so a matrix can be set up. A decision on whether to go ahead if the weather is marginal will be posted here by 10-30am Sat 29 June.

The rules are a variant of BARCS Multilaunch.  Electric launch gliders must be fitted with an AMRT (height limiter) which cuts the motor at 30 secs and records the launch height. Electric launch maximum height is 175m and there is a penalty of 3 pts per metre for Electric launches exceeding it. Most pilots will want to set AMRTs to cut a little below 175m. It is fine instead to use F5J firmware and cut the motor manually.

We want to have a full day's flying so please check in 09:30 latest and be ready for Pilots Briefing at 09:45 with the competition starting at 10:00 sharp.

Weather permitting, a minimum of 4 rounds and a maximum of 6 rounds will be flown
