  5. Hello dear F5J pilot, the Petirrojo RC modelling club invites you to join out 7th edition for F5J Masters (http://www.f5jmasters.com). This year we made a big change in order to offer a more international contest. We will be flying F5J using FAI rules and we expect to make more than 10 qualifying flights and 3 flyoffs. This edition is part of the Eurocontest F5J calendar in Spain. The location is fantastic (Escalona del Prado, Spain), the field is 2kms long and 400m wide with no obstacles. It was used as a flying field during the Spanish Civil War. We offer camp for home motors and campin

    Interglide 2017 moves to F5J

    Growing interest in F5J and the lack of it in F3J results in Interglide being switched to an F5J Eurotour event from 2017 onwards. With the growth of F5J in the UK and Internationally a good entry is on the cards for this event. As soon as there is more information on the event location it will be published here. The date for this event is already decided and will be 24th - 25th June 2017.

    A New Step in F5J

    Most will know of the new development in glider construction which was pioneered by DLG model makers. The difference from what we are used to with moulded construction is that the new method uses one precision cut solid foam core rather than the several layers of thin foam used in the construction of hollow moulded wings. The solid core is covered with the, also new ultra-light carbon fabric, in a mould. There are a number of other differences in the construction but I don’t have all that info. This new construction enables wings to be built with a much thinner section, and much lighter i

  12. Hey everyone! A question most likely for F3x competitors, what type of boxes do you use to get your models on a plane, or what have you seen in use? I've been trying to find something big enough to take a few F3K size planes, but not dramatically expensive neither. I looked at the type of transport box Hyperflight is selling, though it doesn't fill me with confidence as to the strength of one (selling a damaged box at half price now). I thought of adapting one of the Ski plastic boxes that can accommodate up to 4/5 sets of skis, but getting one big enough in UK, not to mention the pr
  13. RESULTS & REPORT What a cracking days soaring it turned out to be with even the weather cooperating! With an entry of 28 pilots which dropped down to 25 on the day we looked set for a good days soaring. 25 entries ensured that it would still be one of the largest F5J comps held this year in the UK. Very pleasing for us the organizers as it makes all the considerable pre-comp work worthwhile. We are very lucky in that here in the SE corner of the country to have a lot of electric soaring pilots who are happy to support our comps. Over the past 2 years we have tried to steadily imp

    White Rabbit F5J

    This is my first stab at a full function TS glider. Once again, Jef is the nudge behind the design and once again I am seeking comments and help etc on the layout and construction and in particular the power train. I have used Sailplane Calc extensively with this model, Profili for the wing design and Draftsight to pull it all together. There is no rush, this is going to be a winter build and I have a F3-RES to build first. So v2 is here - still some tweaking to do. Some salient details based on a target AUW of 1500g (whether that target is achievable is debatable - I

    Tonbridge BMFA F5J League Event - 19th June 2016

    Tonbridge BMFA F5J League Event - Sunday 19 June 2016 – THE RESULTS With an entry of 27 pilots, Tonbridge club hosted what we believe to be the largest UK domestic F5J league comp to date. Following a week of torrential rainfall we were glad to find that with care getting onto the field and not getting stuck wasn’t a problem other than Phil Ramsey who unfortunately got stuck with his large heavy motor-home. Farmer to the rescue with very big red tractor! The day looked like it would be ideal RC Soaring weather starting off warm and calm but progressively getting windier as the d

    Radioglide 2016 Report and Results

    Once again it is my pleasure to collate a report for this year’s Radioglide event. Held at the now familiar Tudor Farm near the village of Edgcott in Buckinghamshire, the winch launch competitions were held in a new field adjacent to the previously used one as this has been ploughed and planted with crop. The weather stayed dry for all three days, a touch windy at times (some might say more than a touch!) and a great time was had by all. Please find the individual discipline reports below, I hope there are no glaring errors but it is difficult sometimes as a competing pilot to take in all

  21. Dear F5J pilots, After a very successful first worldcup F5J competition in 2015, our team tries to bring the contest to a next level.

  23. For those who may not yet have seen it, here is a post from Mike Proctor on esoaring : Hello All FAI rules are normally allowed to be changed every 2 years and that happens in one month from now for F5J (and certain other classes) when National delegates meet to discuss proposals and vote. It is a testament to the F5J rules that there are very few changes proposed. The rules I would like your opinion on concern the Fly Off. Currently the CD can elect, at the beginning of an event, NOT to have a Fly Off, if there are 20 or fewer competitors. One proposal seeks to

    PROGLIDE Homebuilt F5J Soarer

    Homebuilt F5J Soarer (Kevin Beale & Colin Paddon) After a long gestation period, we are pleased to announce the birth of a rare beast … a competition homebuilt 3.8m F5J soarer! When the F5J class came into being, it shone out as a great opportunity to once again be able to produce a homebuilt model which would be able to compete well against the superb moulded manufacturers offerings. With no F3J launch stress to consider, Kevin Beale & I (Colin Paddon) decided this was a totally feasible option albeit one that to date had not b
