BARCS-ELG 14thJuly 2019

Recommended Posts


This is a 'BARTLETTS LEAGUE’ qualifier to be held on the  EQFA's new 'Bartletts Farm' field .

The usual 3 classes of model can be flown, Open, 2Mtr and 100” (up to 2.6mtr allowed), and each can score points in their own Bartletts league. Please note that models must comply with BARCS class restrictions if you wish to also score in the appropriate BARCS Leagues.

2 entries allowed per pilot, but each entry must be with different class models.

AMRT (Height limiter) CAN be set to any height up to 300mtrs, but MUST be set with a maximum motor run time of 30sec.

Scoring as per F5J, i.e. a penalty of 3 points per metre but for launching over 175 metres   

BARCS rules allow one re- launch  in a slot,  and for an emergency re start if necessary.  

N.B. a re-launch  will be counted as a scoring flight. Motor re-start will result in a zero score for that slot.

 Entry £5.00 payable on the day.

Please register your entry in this thread, all will be assumed to on 2.4 unless advised.

I'm the guest CD!

A big thanks to Ian for taking up the baton of running the event, it would be good to have someone from North of the Thames, to host events this side.

It's not working out well for me this year.  Yet another diary clash.  This time I'm travelling north for daughter's university graduation ceremony.  Fortunately the next twin daughter's graduation ceremony is midweek and closer to home.
Good luck with the competition.

We were a bit worried that the hay had not been cut, but Dave Bishop true to his word has had it cut now, so plenty of room to lay the spots out.

Ian, you've counted Nick Jackson twice.  I know he's a big lad but he won't count for two.  You've got just 14 entrants, I'm afraid.  Sorry I can't be there as it looks like it'll be great conditions for a competition.

Ian, sorry I have not entered, confidence and mobility is having negative influences.  Been to our club field a lot recently, trying to overcome this negativity!!!!!   The low entry means I'm under presure to keep up, I find this difficult both phsicaly and mentaly.

I (we, Nipper) might get to come to spectate, Nipper is more interested in smells, ***-bits and fuss.

I will do some work Saturday at the club field on a walking stick/TX/model carying  option???  Gives me limited mobility to that 1st 2nd spot?

Looking like a good day weather wise, all enjoy.
