  6. In case others haven't seen Pete M's post below there will be a pre-season event at Little Bentley to prepare ourselves for the 2018 league onslaught :-) If enough pilots register we'll run slots and rounds otherwise we'll do the IRCMC all-up-last-down timed flight, landing target is near yourself, and no timer/helper. Register your interest and watch this space for a go, no-go on Saturday 24th March. If Sunday 25th March isn't good for flying will we roll forward to Sunday 1st April (go, no-go 31st March). If 1st April isn't good we'll roll forward to Easter Monday 2nd April (go, no-go on 1st April). If the 2nd is no good either we'll roll on to 8th April (go, no-go on 7th). The following Sunday (15th April) is the first F5J comp., a new thread will be started for that.

    Bartletts League 9th Sept 2012

    What a day of contrasts! Arriving at the field, there was a thick mist over the site so as to see where the control would be for anybody turning up meant I had to stay at the entrance to pass it on to the next arrival, then they could inform the next person and so on. By 10am start, this had cleared to reveal a perfect day with a slight breeze from the South, which then followed the forecast by increasing to approx 15 mph by 2.30pm. This was to lead to some scores suffering as a result and a struggle for some models to get back when venturing to far downwind. Rod Potts was to fare worse in this by losing his Electra V, which has not been found as of the present time. Peter Mitchell was again to suffer a malfunction on his Explorer, when the bell crank pivot failed, causing the model to dive into the ground whilst on launch. A new face to Bartletts Comp was Colin Boorman, although Colin is a regular on the F3j circuit. He was doing well until old habits die hard, by dorking his Shadow in for the landing, dislodged the motor plate. Jill Adams was also a new face, although she had flown in the Tonbridge event at the beginning of August. Think she will get better with the right model. Paul Wainwright has invested some money in an ex Ray Elwell Sprite, so expect we will see him going for the 2 metre class now. My unfashionable Watts Up 2 metre, can still keep up there with them all in the right conditions. I elected not to fly in the last round as I could not bother changing the wings over to the windy set, as the wind was quite strong by then. I did say that we may try to run the last event on the 23rd September, as the reserve date in October does not leave us any options if for any reason that date is ruled out due to weather. We will see from the end of this week what the forecast is for the 23rd. Ordered Results, least score dropped 1000 4996.6 K. Fisher (Open) Shadow 999 4993.7 A. Twine (Open) Stork4 984 4919.3 B.

    Radioglide 2012 Information

    Radioglide 2012 June 2nd – 5th BARCS FESTIVAL OF FLAT FIELD SOARING Marsh Gibbon, Near Bicester, Oxfordshire View Larger Map Get Directions View Bird's Eye BARCS annual flat field soaring event aims to be bigger and better this year with four days of competition plus an additional F5J trial event being held over the Queens Diamond Jubilee holiday 2nd – 5th June. Saturday sees two competitions run in parallel with Electric Launched Glider (ELG) to BARCS rules sharing the field with the F3K (DLG) flyers. The F3K event is a BMFA team selection qualifying league competition. ELG rules allow for two classes of models. The first is a “Restricted Class” (100 inch span max and flying functions of Rudder, elevator & Spoiler OR two meter span max with no limits on control functionality). The second ELG Class is for Open models – no restrictions other than a maximum span of 4 meters. ELG are written around use of a height limiter with a 200 metre cut off for the motor. It is hoped, to hold an informal F5J Trial Competition, open to all who would like to have a go, probably with two rounds following the ELG event and two more rounds on the following day. See Martin Bell during the day if you would like to participate. Sunday will feature BARCS Multi-launch. Any ELG model can compete as well as pure gliders (including DLGs). Thus models as used on the Saturday, are equally suitable for this event, although ELG height limiters will need resetting to cut off at 150 meters. Monday will be an F3J competition (one of the “National” status events for the BMFA team selection league). Again if a flyer uses his F3J model in Multi-launch it can readily carry on for the following day. Finally Tuesday will be an all-day 100S competition. With the extra day available there is no need to try to curtail 100S as has been done in previous years and, weather permitting, this will be at least a six round event this year plus fly-offs. Any 100S flyer could of course also use his model the previous day in F3J. The F3K and F3J competitions are open to all flyers who meet the BMFA league entry criteria, the other events are for BARCS members only. To encourage BARCS members to enter multiple events, a special maximum price is applicable to members, regardless of the total number of events which members enter. Download Entry Form

    Electric Powered Glider Fun Fly Weekend!

    ASHURST West Sussex – ELECTRIC POWERED GLIDER FUN FLY WEEKEND – Saturday 24th and/or Sunday 25th March 2012 Please forward to anyone you know who you think may be interested. To kick start what we hope will be another successful e-Soaring year at Ashurst, we are going have a simple but fun FUN FLY WEEKEND WITH ESOARING, F5J TEACH-IN MINI COMPS AND BMFA ELECTRIC SILENT FLIGHT ACHIEVEMENT TESTS The event is open to spectators and anyone flying ANY electric HAND LAUNCH powered glider up to 4m wingspan. BMFA insurance is required, but no other qualifications are required provide you can demonstrate safe flying practice. Much of the day will be taken up with normal “off the peg” sport flying, but we will also be running several very simple FUN events during the weekend. There will be no obligation whatsoever to take part in any of these “mini comps”. However, if you are not flying, you MAY get called in to help with some timekeeping, counting and measuring! Apart from having fun, one of our aims for the day is to attract new interest in e-Soaring and show just how easy it is to get involved. To this end, there will be plenty of “experts” around to help with models, give advice and answer any questions or queries about electric gliders. Fancy having a go but don’t have a e-Glider, we will have a buddy box system which you can have a go on if you want The new Electric events this year is FAI BMFA F5J eSoaring with a twist come and see what it’s all about learn with us. If you have ever wondered what thermal soaring is all about, this will be the weekend to find out. If you are already an experienced e-Soaring competitor, then please come along and help to spread the word – and have some fun at the same time. (A couple of the mini comps will be especially designed for you and will be tough!) For anyone interested, loan altimeter switches will be available on the day and help offered to anyone who wants to try their hand at height limited flying, without the perceived “pressure” of competition. We will also be having a look at the BMFA Silent flight Electric Achievement program, demos discussions and tests will be available to those who are interested So what sort of fun “mini comps” are we running? Sorry, but you’ll have to come along and see for yourself! There will be prizes (mostly tins of something cool and wet) awarded at the end of the day for all sorts of things – not just for doing well in a “mini comp” ! There is no pre-entry, just turn up and enter on the day! Something to sell? You are welcome to bring anything along you want to sell. Nothing formal – it will be just like a car boot sale for Electric Glider Flyers. If you would like to come along, it would be useful for us to know, so that we can cater for expected numbers. Simply e-mail me bernie AT esoarer.co.uk with your name, and if flying, your preferred frequency (if on 35 preferred plus an option if possible). If you need any more information, email me as above and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. If you intend flying during the day, there will be a charge of £7.00 per day if you can only make one day, or £10 which covers the whole weekend, but it costs nothing to come along as a spectator. Official start time each day will be 10.00 am, but you can book in and collect your registration form at anytime after 8.30am – Flying till to dark or to cold – DON’T forget your BMFA membership card or insurance document.

    Radioglide 2011 ELG and 100s Report

    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. 100s Fly Off Results table.tableizer-table { border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; } .tableizer-table td { padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } .tableizer-table th { background-color: #4297C9; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; } Rank Name Score Pcnt Rnd1 Dur Rnd2 Dur 1 Pelling, Terry 2000 100 1000 1000 2 Dickinson, Bob 1287.4 64.37 554.8 732.6 3 Warby, Neville 1071.4 53.57 408.6 662.8 4 Chambers, Glyn 669.4 33.47 669.4 0 100s Preliminary Rounds table.tableizer-table { border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; } .tableizer-table td { padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } .tableizer-table th { background-color: #4297C9; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; } Rank Name Score Pcnt Rnd1 Dur Rnd2 Dur Rnd3 Dur Rnd4 Dur Rnd5 Dur Rnd6 Dur 1 Pelling, Terry 5821.7 100 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 821.7 2 Chambers, Glyn 5374.4 92.32 847.2 1000 754.7 1000 1000 772.5 3 Warby, Neville 5313.4 91.27 1000 690 1000 998.1 625.3 1000 4 Dickenson, Bob 4656.4 79.98 895.7 953.3 483.5 694.4 922.3 707.2 5 Sleight, Robin 4504 77.37 842.2 830.6 636.8 481.6 712.8 1000 6 Goddard, Ken 4284.4 73.59 557.3 680.1 741.9 944.9 632.7 727.5 7 James, Graham 4070 69.91 570 766.7 363.2 974.3 494.9 900.9 8 Binnie, Gary 3870 66.48 583.3 465.1 697.3 698.3 774.8 651.2 9 Nicoll, Ken 3412.4 58.62 436.1 366.7 682.4 849.3 509.4 568.5 10 Philcox, Cengiz 1676.8 28.8 983.3 693.5 0 0 0 0 ELG Overall Results table.tableizer-table { border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; } .tableizer-table td { padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } .tableizer-table th { background-color: #4297C9; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; } Rank Name Score Pcnt Raw Score Rnd1 Dur Rnd2 Dur Rnd3 Dur Rnd4 Dur Drop1 Dur Penlty 1 Allen, Peter 2993.6 100 2993.6 993.6 1000 1000 0 0 0 2 Sleight, Robin 2652.5 88.61 3396.3 1000 853.4 743.8 799.1 743.8 0 3 Mitchell, Peter 2571.1 85.89 3164.4 593.3 960.7 723.6 886.8 593.3 0 4 Hanham, Cliff 2546.1 85.05 3208 661.9 968.6 750.6 826.9 661.9 0 5 Wharrie, Martyn 2512 83.91 2945.8 433.8 774.9 737.1 1000 433.8 0 6 Pelling, Terry 2361.6 78.89 2843.3 909.1 481.7 730.3 722.2 481.7 0 7 1, Spare 2358.2 78.77 2978.4 878.8 725.1 620.2 754.3 620.2 0 8 Lucas, Colin 1982.9 66.24 2312 575.8 780.1 627 329.1 329.1 0 9 2, Spare 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 9 Foss, Chris 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 9 Gadenne, Ray 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 9 James, Graham 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 9 Jones, Bernie 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

    Radioglide 2011

    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. 100s Fly Off Results table.tableizer-table { border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; } .tableizer-table td { padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } .tableizer-table th { background-color: #4297C9; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; } Rank Name Score Pcnt Rnd1 Dur Rnd2 Dur 1 Pelling, Terry 2000 100 1000 1000 2 Dickinson, Bob 1287.4 64.37 554.8 732.6 3 Warby, Neville 1071.4 53.57 408.6 662.8 4 Chambers, Glyn 669.4 33.47 669.4 0 100s Preliminary Rounds table.tableizer-table { border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; } .tableizer-table td { padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } .tableizer-table th { background-color: #4297C9; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; } Rank Name Score Pcnt Rnd1 Dur Rnd2 Dur Rnd3 Dur Rnd4 Dur Rnd5 Dur Rnd6 Dur 1 Pelling, Terry 5821.7 100 1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 821.7 2 Chambers, Glyn 5374.4 92.32 847.2 1000 754.7 1000 1000 772.5 3 Warby, Neville 5313.4 91.27 1000 690 1000 998.1 625.3 1000 4 Dickenson, Bob 4656.4 79.98 895.7 953.3 483.5 694.4 922.3 707.2 5 Sleight, Robin 4504 77.37 842.2 830.6 636.8 481.6 712.8 1000 6 Goddard, Ken 4284.4 73.59 557.3 680.1 741.9 944.9 632.7 727.5 7 James, Graham 4070 69.91 570 766.7 363.2 974.3 494.9 900.9 8 Binnie, Gary 3870 66.48 583.3 465.1 697.3 698.3 774.8 651.2 9 Nicoll, Ken 3412.4 58.62 436.1 366.7 682.4 849.3 509.4 568.5 10 Philcox, Cengiz 1676.8 28.8 983.3 693.5 0 0 0 0 ELG Overall Results table.tableizer-table { border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; } .tableizer-table td { padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } .tableizer-table th { background-color: #4297C9; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; } Rank Name Score Pcnt Raw Score Rnd1 Dur Rnd2 Dur Rnd3 Dur Rnd4 Dur Drop1 Dur Penlty 1 Allen, Peter 2993.6 100 2993.6 993.6 1000 1000 0 0 0 2 Sleight, Robin 2652.5 88.61 3396.3 1000 853.4 743.8 799.1 743.8 0 3 Mitchell, Peter 2571.1 85.89 3164.4 593.3 960.7 723.6 886.8 593.3 0 4 Hanham, Cliff 2546.1 85.05 3208 661.9 968.6 750.6 826.9 661.9 0 5 Wharrie, Martyn 2512 83.91 2945.8 433.8 774.9 737.1 1000 433.8 0 6 Pelling, Terry 2361.6 78.89 2843.3 909.1 481.7 730.3 722.2 481.7 0 7 1, Spare 2358.2 78.77 2978.4 878.8 725.1 620.2 754.3 620.2 0 8 Lucas, Colin 1982.9 66.24 2312 575.8 780.1 627 329.1 329.1 0 9 2, Spare 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 9 Foss, Chris 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 9 Gadenne, Ray 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 9 James, Graham 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 9 Jones, Bernie 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

    Bartletts League 15th May 2011

    Well, we seem to be stuck in this spell of weather that delivers high winds & sunshine, with the former being decidedly unseasonal for May. But having to abort the one scheduled for the 1st May due to windy conditions that proved to be correct, Sunday was not the greatest either, especially with the wind being in the West, delivering the dreaded Bartletts curl over, on the landing approach. Dave Fletcher ducked out on the Saturday, then Peter Hindle, Peter Mitchell 2 metre & George Read, elected not to fly on the day due to the conditions. Peter Hindle filled me with dread on arrival with the quote that the wind was going to increase to 30MPH in the afternoon. But this proved not to be the case, so we ot under way with 16 flyer's. This was cut to 13 after the first round due to various problems from motors falling out through to damage on landing. I myself decided that discretion was better than valour, so never really went for the landing spot if it got tricky. There were some slots where the lift was tremendous, more than I can remember from this wind direction at any time I have flown there. Peter Hindle had to work overtime with the scoring system as slots were adjusted from what he had arranged before the event. As he said he could not have flown & done this as well, so another big thank you to him on the day. So we finished early at about 3.30 pm, with the final scores ready about 3 minutes later. Finally thanks to all for your continued support for these events, lets have a few more next time on 19th June. Brian Austin.

    Bartletts League 3rd April 2011

    The forecast in the week was pretty vague but checked out several sites & the Sunday looked as though it would be OK. This indeed was the case, with conditions that would be hard to better in the summer. Bartletts itself may have been a problem as the entrance to the field has been extremely boggy with some members having to be pulled out, and not so long ago at that. We had 21 entries of which 3 did not show for whatever reason, but Randy Taylor turned up and took one of the spares, so we had 19 fly on the day. Trouble is that not having children, my notion of when Mothers Day is, does not enter into the equation when planning events The only change to the rules for this year was to bring them into line with BARCS rules in regards to the landing. Now if you overfly the 10 minutes you lose any landing points you may have obtained, but retain your flight score up to the 10 minutes. The conditions in the morning were absolutely idillic with little wind and warm sunshine, so much so that the early morning dew soon dissipated. There was only one major disaster when Peter Mitchell's AVA plunged into the ground from a great height due to a dry joint on one of the connectors to the battery Seven rounds were flown with 3 slots per round which made it pretty hectic if you were flying twice with two entry's. Peter Hindle has now refined the scoring system and the slot timing, having said that we had a glitch on the slot timer for the first slot as he still had the lap top on mute sound! I know I have said this before, but I could not run this event now without Peter's help, he is invaluable to the whole thing. But we have got him to take part yesterday, which he enjoyed. Results are shown below, if anybody wishes to have the full set of results e mail me & I will send them on to you. Pictures to follow when we have some that Peter took, but I believe Jason is going to post some. 5760.8 B. Austin (Open) 5695.3 P. Sainsbury (Open) 5684.6 A. Twine (Open) 5551.7 R.
