  4. This is an early announcement in the hope we can receive more detailed history and any reports from past years from our readers in advance of this years event. The history of the above starts with HAROLD JAMES TOWNER (1893 to ????) engineer. H J Towner was the elder brother of professional artist Donald Towner. They are descended from the Eastbourne (Sussex) branch of the Towner family. He is noted for his particular expertise in the art of scale modelling classic aircraft built to fly. He also possessed considerable skill as a draughtsman. His designs for model aircraft were published in the 1940s and are still much admired and sought after today. Following his death his own high quality scale models (made from his own plans) were acquired by the Royal Air Force museum. Mr Towner still retains a strong following amongst the model aircraft fraternity and the Towner Memorial Trophy is presented to the best entry in (model thermal gliding) competitions. Some of the things said about him (from blog websites) are : - “exquisite drawings” “highly respected and skilful” “he could make almost anything fly” “lifetime of model building admired by many even today” The image is of his publication “Scale model aircraft that fly” (1940) by H J Towner and Howard Boys. The actual Towner Trophy was presented by the family to the South Eastern Area of the SMAE (now known as the BMFA) and was traditionally was held in Eastbourne at Deanland Airfield. Mr Towners daughter Pam Urquhart used to present the trophy. Norman Cooling from the Eastbourne Flying Club ran the competition and after he passed away Keith Miller from the Tonbridge club and now the Kent Interclub are running of the event. The first competition was held in 1968 to early thermal gliding rules and is believed to be the oldest event for Thermal Soaring. 54 years on and the rules have changed firstly to F3J then Multilaunch and finally F5J. It has been held on 47 occasions some years missed for various reasons including bad weather, foot and mouth restrictions and similarly last year COVID. There have only been 29 winners during this time with the all time honours going to Chris Foss with 7 wins, Ricky Shaw and Colin Paddon with 5, Colin Lucas with 3, Geoff Dallimer and Phil Ramsey twice. Entry details will follow nearer the event.

  18. It is disappointing but understandable that many glider competitions are being cancelled due to the current situation. It is my intention to run F5J competitions at Little Bentley if possible. I believe with a little adjustment to how we do things on the flying field we can maintain a good level of safe separation between ourselves that has minimal to no impact on the actual contest and its result. Here are some of the procedures that we could put in place: Hand washing facilities on field - bring your own towel, bring your own hand wash even. Park well spaced apart - Little Bentley is enormous we can easily park 2 car widths from the next person. Greetings and banter can be had still be done from 3m, no need to be closer. Be totally self sufficient, we all have our own clocks, pens and paper. One person sets the field up, one person sets up the timing equipment, a single person uses the scoring computer - more work for said person but sacrifices have to be made Pilot's briefing can be online the evening before the contest, any extra instructions can be given over PA system. Timing and scoring - no score cards, that's what you bring your own paper or notepad for. Timers stand 2-3m from their pilot, spots would be put further apart to give even more space than normal. Fittest people would go to furthest spots, mid-fit to middle, less able, scorer, timer to nearest spots. Pilot would measure their landing bonus and read launch height while timer keeps their 2-3m distance. Timers give scorer the data while maintaining 2-3m from scoring tent - barrier easily set up with red/white tape and cones or something. Getting to and from your car (pits), the flight line and the scoring tent - look around and choose your moment to walk with as much distance from the person in front as you want. Time between slots could be extended if required. Pilots will launch their own models. No prize giving, results announced over PA system - prize for winner, a bottle of hand-sanitiser. Reverse field and timing system setup - same people that set it up, break it down. No one has to touch anything of anybody else's at all, all day. All the above is relatively easy for us flying F5J, it may be different for other disciplines. I would plan to have a second 'meerkat' PA system reminding everyone to 'mind the gap' every couple of minutes until we're sick of hearing it and have got the message. All this might be academic if we get totally locked down, the current advice is here - Guidance on social distancing - most things at this moment are avoid - I would add to that, avoid reading the newspapers, watching or listening to too much tv or radio news and definitely avoid all anti-social media - except the funny stuff. Cities are the real problem, out here in the countryside we're fine - with reasonable precautions. If you use public transport - stop. If you have contact with children or students - try not to. If you do either of these things, or have contact with people that do these things, then probable best if you do self-isolate. I've given this reasonable thought, hopefully we can still enjoy our competition flying (even if it counts for nought towards BARCS or even BMFA leagues). We could be on for a summer of beautiful thermal flying weather, lets enjoy it instead of being cowed at home TonyM Male ✔ Over 60 ✔ Underlying medical condition ✔ Suppressed immune system ✔ Reducing my activities ✔ Overly worried - still ✘
  19. The forecast has not improved so I'm calling the competition off. Here's hoping for more settled weather for the Team Trials. Venue is Little Bentley Polo Club, Rectory Road, Essex, CO7 8SN. Camping on the field Saturday night, pub 1/4 mile up the road, loo on site (hopefully, got to check). Your model must have an approved height limiting/data logging device (AMRT) which must be able to show the max height your model goes to during its motor run time plus 10 seconds after your motor is shut off. The limiting function must be set to allow maximum 30seconds motor run time, and the height limiting function must either be disabled or set to 300m. Motor restart is permitted at any time during flight for safety reasons, but will result in a zero score for that round. Two classes of model can be entered, either Open or 2Metre but only one entry permitted. Prizes awarded on the day and points scored will go towards the National League. The competition will be run to BMFA Local Rules, 6 rounds will be flown if conditions permit and there will not be a flyoff. Entry fee £10.00 (BMFA requirement) payable on the day. Proof of BMFA membership (card is sufficient) required. Timing on the day may vary, and all/any help to set up the field will be appreciated. But the plan is as usual, book in from 9am. First flight around 10am.

The new roundabout is in use now, so coming from up from the A12 you will now take the second exit, probably signposted Lt. Bentley. The gap across the A120 at Pelhams Corner (the road going through Little Bromley past my house) is now closed, if coming from Ipswich via the A137 you now turn left at the mini-roundabout by the Jet petrol station (sign posted Clacton), right at the crossroads after about a mile, a couple of miles to the roundabout on the A120 by the water tower at Horsley Cross. 3rd exit on to the A120 then left to Lt. Bentley and you're back on the normal route. A very basic map
  20. ALTIS v4+ WARNING - cable issue!!! AerobTec WARNING - cable issue!!! Dear customers, based on several reports received from some of you in August this year we discovered that some of the devices have an issue with the input or output cables caused by our cable supplier. It seems some of the cables have incorrect crimping of the wire which was not discovered during the quality check, since the devices behaved normally and there was no suspicion about it. The crimping issue might lead to interrupted of some of the connections on the way between the receiver and ESC which might have its consequences. Therefore it is recommended to pay appropriate attention to it. We identified that the affected devices are Altis v4+ delivered mostly in the first half of 2019 and the serial numbers are from the range 464912388 to 498073604. It is not excluded that some other devices are affected as well – you can check also other devices. We had also one report on Device Terminal cable affected by this but at the moment there is no further indication if it is a single case or if it is related to the same issue. It is recommended to check the cables according to following: • Test the device in plane on ground • Plug Altis between the receiver and ESC • Run the motor • Move the cable near connector in order to detect possible disconnection of the cable. • Other check consists of trying to pull the cable from its housing (disconnected from plane). Hold the housing and pull the cable with a moderate force. You can also try it separately with all three wires entering the housing. If the wires are loosen easily, you probably have one of the affected devices. If you detected that your device is affected by the problem or you have doubts about it feel free to contact us and send the device for replacement or repair for free. If you decide to repair it yourself, please contact us and let us know about your case. We are now in contact with the cable manufacturer so the issue does not occur again and we will extend the quality check during manufacturing steps. We would like to apology for the inconveniences caused by the mentioned issue and we believe you will stay loyal to our products. https://www.facebook.com/AerobTec/ info@aerobtec.com

  22. COMPETITION CANCELLED ---- COMPETITION CANCELLED ---- COMPETITION CANCELLED Cancellatiion of this comp will come as no surprise to you all with the weather forecast for Sunday 22nd September being particularly grim with Rain/Thunderstorms forecast. This after weeks of perfectly flyable weather. This is the third Tonbridge Club F5J comp that has had to be cancelled in succession due to adverse weather conditions. Because of this the organisers would now like to solicit your thoughts/opinion as to whether in future we should consider changing over to the Saturday/Sunday format whereby the day the comp is held on can be either the Saturday or Sunday depending on weather with preference being given to Sunday if both days are flyable. This hopefully would mean there is less chance of having to cancel a comp due to bad weather on a single day. If this format were to be adopted it would simply mean that you would have to indicate when entering which day(s) you were able to fly on. Could you please take a few minutes to post on this thread your thoughts/opinion on possibly moving over to this format. Thank you. Tonbridge club are hosting a BMFA League F5J competition at Leigh Park Farm, Nr Tonbridge, Kent on Sunday 22nd Septmber 2019. All are welcome with plenty of help available on the day for newcomers. For those flyers that paid for entry of our weather disrupted F5J comp on 16 June 2019, entry to this competition is FREE. We would ask though that you please re-enter on this thread so that we know who will be attending. Directions to the field can be found here: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Leigh+Park+Farm/@51.2091254,0.19327,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x47df4fda3f5fd36d:0xfd76d04136677dd9?hl=en The competition will be run to F5J rules with UK variations as published by the BMFA. The main points for BMFA F5J comps are: - Either Open or 2m may be flown, not both. - Motor restart may be used (results in a zero flight score), and therefore you need only to use your eSoaring switch BUT you must reset the (200m) height limit to 300m this can often be done easily by using a reader, otherwise use a computer. - As in eSoaring, you must provide a reader, so that your timekeeper can check your launch height immediately after landing. - Minimum of 4 rounds to be flown but usually 6 rounds are flown. No fly-off's. Entry fee £10.00 (BMFA requirement) payable on the day. * See Above Proof of insurance (BMFA membership card is sufficient) required Closing date for entries is 6.00pm Friday 20th September 2019 In the event that there is any doubt as to whether the event will be run due to forecasted inclement weather, a final decision will be posted on this thread by no later than 4pm on Saturday 21st September. We look forward to seeing you on the field. Book in from 9am.

  23. This is a 'BARTLETTS LEAGUE’ qualifier to be held on the SADMAC flying field (Sittingbourne & District Model Aircraft Club Kent see map below) 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 Group, 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 Group. Entry £5.00 payable on the day. Please register your entry in this thread, I'll be the CD using GliderScore. Any cancellation will be advised by Saturday 2pm at the latest on this post.

  24. Competition 28th is off. Sorry to disappoint - explanation below There will be an F5J competition Sunday 28 July at Bartletts Field, Rettendon, Essex. 9-45 briefing for 10am start, please. Scores will count for the BMFA League but this will be a relaxed competition suitable for new as well as experienced competitors, with plenty of help available for newcomers. The competition will be run to F5J rules with UK variations as published by the BMFA. The main points for BMFA F5J comps are: - Either Open or 2m may be flown, not both. - Motor restart may be used (results in a zero flight score), and therefore non-FAI firmware set to at least 300m may be used. - Your timekeeper must be able to check your launch height immediately after landing (so you need a reader if not displayed on your height limiter). - The hope is to fly 6 rounds - minimum of 4 . No fly-offs. Entry fee £10.00 (BMFA requirement) payable on the day. Proof of insurance (BMFA membership card is sufficient) required Please sign up on this thread or by emailing me: whitstable.nick@outlook.com (I'm guesting as CD). Please include your BMFA number. Entries will be assumed to be Open 2.4GHz unless you tell me different. Closing date for entries is 6.00pm Friday 26 July 2019. If there's any doubt about the weather, a decision on whether the contest goes ahead will be posted here by 3pm Saturday 27 July. Registrations as of 26 July: Brian Austin Mike Connell Ray Gadenne John Hovell Nick Jackson Steve Knowles Peter Ley Garry Matthews Tony Merritt Peter Mitchell Ian Nicholls Eddy Small Randy Taylor Paul Wainwright
