  • Open and 100s Classes

    As stated in the F3J model description on this web site, the top performing models for both BARCS Open and 100S competitions are generally of all moulded construction. However in the many local Open competitions multiple entries are encouraged which gives an opportunity to fly models of differing classes and the challenge of competing with the F3J type models all adds to the fun.  The sub classes of models are: Rudder, Elevator & Spoiler (RES), Classic, Vintage, Tail-less and 100S.

    As a model definition, RES is it – no limits on span, area, weight or anything else but the model must not have more than these three functions.  This makes for a reasonably simple model with minimal demands on the radio as no ailerons or wing camber changing functions are allowed.  Until the advent of composite models factory produced from female moulds, the great majority of UK Open Class thermal soarers were simply RES models. A typical soarer from that era (up to the early 1990’s) was about 12 foot span and 9 or so ounces/square foot loading and a great many of these models are still about.

    Classic is a class of glider intended to bridge the gap between the real “Golden Oldies” of Vintage gliders and the modern day gliders.. The cut-off qualifying date for Classic gliders has recently been brought forward and is now the end of 1990.  Classic therefore covers the period 1956 to 1990. After all even 1990 will still feel pretty classic to anyone who only took up the sport within the last 15 years or so. This date encompasses a huge range of designs – all essentially built up but glass fibre fuselages were available for many gliders in that era and obechi covered foam wings were also commonplace.

    Vintage gliders are those designed before the end of 1955. What therefore makes Vintage gliders quite unique is that, without exception, they were all designed before the days of radio control.  Thus every single vintage design was originally intended for free flight use and a significant challenge exists in creating a radio version which is controllable and has a worthwhile soaring performance.  To assist the process of converting such venerable designs to radio control some changes are allowed. Models can be scaled up (or down) in size.  Thus a free flight design of an original 50 inch span can readily be doubled in size to become a 100 inch span model. The rules require basic adherence to the type of construction used in the original design, however internal, non visible modifications are allowed.  For instance spruce can be used instead of balsa if the builder so chooses and even the wing section can be altered, provided the new section was also in existence in the same era. Hatches and whatever modifications are necessary to get the relevant control surfaces are also allowed.

      2013 Sheffield Open

      By Fozzie, in Contest Reports,

      Sunday 24th Feb.  The weather forecast for the day was for overcast and windy. How wrong could they be.
      The day started with light north wind and cloud however by the middle of round 1 the Sun appeared with the winds reaching an average of 12mph. With 19 entries I decided on four rounds with four pilots in each slot.With only 7 slots going to the full 10 mins it was a difficult days flying . Kevin Newitt came out the round winner and also was the only flyer which scored the perfect 100 landing points.
      Kevin was joined in the flyoff by Ian Duff, Pete Alen & Simon Vaitkievicus.Pete had radio problems in the 2nd round but luckily recovered his undamaged model out of a tree. The winner for the day was Ian Duff who travelled the furthest followed by Kevin then simon & peter.
      I’d like to thank all who turned out on the day and hope they all enjoyed it as much as i did running it.

    • The last round of the 2011/12 winter series took place on Sunday 11th March, we had 14 entries.
      After cancelling the February comp due to bad weather it was a real treat to be greeted with perfect gliding weather, not only sun but also very warm with a gentle breeze.
      Round 1 started at around 10.30 and we soon found lift, the lowest time during the first slot was 9.00mins!! We carried on flying and the only concern was losing site of models escalating into the blue sky.
      Round 1,2,3 and 4 proved very enjoyable indeed and many slots were flown out easily, we moved into round 5 and slot 1 started badly with Dave Varrallo losing his elevator control, the model was badly damaged as it hit the ground at speed.
      During slot 2 we had a mid air between Neville Warby and Simon Vaitkevicius both fighting for the same patch of lift, both models suffered damage but managed safe landings.
      Slot 3 and Mick Thorpe came into contact with David Leech’s Mini Ava on launch the result was an uncontrollable fuzz without tail plane followed by a scattering of wingtip parts, all fell to earth safely, Micks model managed a safe landing but also suffered damage.
      After 4 good rounds and a cruel 5th round the winners for the day were,
      1st Chris Grant with his home built 100s model with 4786 points
      2nd went to Peter Newitt with 4761
      3rd went to Simon V with 4607
      Top 100s went to 2nd place John Hullet as Chris took the overall prize for the day.
      Thanks must go as always to Neville Warby for all his help throughout the series making my job a lot
      easier. Thanks also to all competitors who took part and please keep coming.
      Full results for round 6 are below.
      To finish the day off I had a phone call during round 5 telling me my son David was being air lifted to Peterborough City hospital suffering a badly broken leg (football injury) I packed away the kit drove to hospital and spent all evening with him, I returned Monday morning and didn’t return home until 5.30pm. He is now comfortable at home but will be out of action for 6-8 weeks. He has broken both his tibia and fibula in his right leg. I think he should consider taking up a more gentle sport… say…. model gliding?
      The Mike Lucas 100s comps start on April 8th at Twywell so dust of those 100s models cycle the batteries and I’ll see you there.

    • Peterborough Open 2011

      By alanmorton, in Contest Reports,

      The annual Peterborough Open took place on Sunday 25th of September 18 pilots turned up to fly, we had 3 double entries for both open and 100s making a total of 21 entries. Neville Warby was CD for the day and soon had the field ready to go.
      We were greeted by a gentle NNE wind and the odd spot of rain, while we were all setting up the rain dried up and the wind speed increased, by the time the comp started the wind was around 10-15mph. We used a new automatic timing system similar to the F3J timers with a 5-minute preparation time and this worked ok.
      Round 1 got underway and Graham Gilliatt was the first to score 1000 points with a time of 7.50 and a 40-point bonus. Round 1 slots were not brilliant and it wasn’t until the middle of round 2 that times increased to the 9.50s, landing points were increasingly important as the day progressed. Jeff Stocking unfortunately had a wing tip come off during his first launch and this forced him to retire before he had even started. Chris Grant suffered damage during round 2 and he also had to retire early.
      The wind continued to blow and by the 3rd round was gusting 15-20 mph (guess). Up until this point I had been doing well and was actually on top of the leader board, I launched for my 3rd flight and everything was normal until I came off the line, it was as if my model had been switched of mid flight, absolutely no control whatsoever, the model just headed for earth and then buried itself. I later checked the batteries and they were still in the top green, the transmitter was used straight afterwards for my second model with no problems, the Ariel even after the impact was still attached to the receiver, the servos appear to have no gear damage. I guess I will never know the reason, which is annoying and scary. The model had flown twice that day and had been ranged checked before the comp started. I will be checking the wreckage thoroughly and will also check my other models for signs of wear or loose linkages, which could have contributed!
      By the end of round 4 the wind was still increasing and John Hullett became victim to the turbulence, he suffered slight damaged to both of his models. Neville called for the vote to move straight on to the fly off after round 4, this was agreed and 5 pilots entered the fly off for two 15-minute flights.
      The first flight was short with a winning time of just 6.58mins by Neville Warby, the second was better and was won easily by Kevin Newitt with 11.17mins. Overall winner for the day was Kevin Newitt, Second place went to Neville Warby, and third went to Peter Allen. Top 100s for the 4 rounds also went to Kevin but he chose open for the fly off and this allowed David leech to enter the fly off and finish top 100s. Well done to all fly off pilots, a challenging day.
      Neville did an excellent job ensuring the comp was a success and we all thank him for his efforts, thanks also to all pilots for making it a good day. More open comps to come with the start of the winter series on October the 16th, all dates and more information on web page.

    • Radioglide 2011

      By Austin, in Radioglide,

      The appalling weather experienced over the late spring bank holiday weekend caused the cancellation of the Radioglide events scheduled for the Sunday and Monday. Some flying was possible on Saturday but because of the increasingly strong winds through the day many people opted not to fly.
      100s started early in the morning before the wind became too strong and it was possible to complete 6 rounds and a fly off by 2pm. Terry Pelling topped a fine performance by winning all but one of the rounds and both rounds of the fly off. Outstanding!
      After lunch, with increasing wind, many more pilots opted not to fly and the event was reduced to just one slot per round. In spite of the wind some slots were being flown out for the full 10 minutes and four rounds were completed before it was finally decided to call a halt.
      The rules specify that a score is dropped after 3 rounds have been completed so Peter Allen won in spite of not being able to fly in the last round because of a damaged model.
