  1. 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.

  3. Bromley 2011 - Contest Reports - British Association of Radio Control Soarers (barcs.co.uk) and Kent InterClub Multilaunch - 20 June 2021 at Invicta The latter was only attended by Kent flyers, sadly many from the former are no longer with us, but the opportunity to fly your F3J models in competitions still exists.
  4. Full details and entry will be on the BARCS – Aircraft - Kent Interclub Forum This is an open competition and non Kent club members are very welcome (entry fee £5). The rules are BARCS Multilaunch for Electric launch gliders. Electric Gliders must be fitted with an AMRT (height limiter) which cuts the motor at 30 secs and records the launch height. Electric launch height of 175m with a penalty of 3 pts per metre for Electric launches exceeding it. Most pilots will want to set AMRTs to cut a little below 175m. It is fine instead to use F5J firmware and cut the motor manually. Sittingbourne, Kent, ME9 9AU, United Kingdom

  14. 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

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.

  16. A firm called Designboom have flown a glider powered solely by an ION drive for the first time this year. The drive has NO moving parts and uses no combustible fuel, fossil or otherwise ‘It took a long time to get here,‘ said Ken Barrett. An MIT engineer in charge of the project ‘going from the basic principle to something that actually flies was a long journey of characterizing the physics, then coming up with the design and making it work, now the possibilities for this kind of propulsion system are viable.’ The original idea came from an episode of “Star Trek” Ken admitted….then the work began…. Search “designboom ion glider” on Google to see the video Barrett and his team at MIT have published their results today (22nd November 2018) in the journal “Nature”
