  1. For BARCS members, the late bank holiday weekend is synonymous with Radioglide, this being the 39th running of the event. Unfortunately bank holidays are also well known for poor weather and following a warm sunny week, it was almost inevitable that as we moved towards the weekend things would deteriorate. And so Saturday 26th May saw the BMFA National Flying Centre in Lincolnshire swathed in mist and low cloud with a stiff northerly breeze. The site is still developing but it has to be said has moved on a long way from the bare shell of things we saw last year. The camping field though f

    Radioglide 2017 F3K Report and Results

    Entries were well up this time on the past few years at 18 - we only had 8 in 2016. This trend has been there for all of the first three F3K events this season and is a very welcome sign. Not just more entries but an improving standard of flying across the board with several new names coming in and already flying at a good standard. We were all keen to see and try the new BMFA National Centre field and we were not disappointed. Driving up from London I met increasingly overcast conditions and a fair breeze from the west. The sky cleared during the day and the wind dropped off giving idea

    Radioglide 2017 Report and Results

    Once again it is my pleasure to collate the reports from Radioglide 2017. Held for the first time at the BMFA National Flying Centre. Photo credits are Gary Binnie, Chas Dunster, Graham James and Neil Harrison (F3K). Saturday 27 May Two competitions were held on Saturday, a combined Open class/100S at the eastern end of the field and F5B just south of the main runway. The day started with light winds and a high, thin overcast allowing milky sunshine through, there was a light shower early on but the main problem was an ever-increasing wind strength which caused us to give up early.
  7. It's Radioglide time again and this year we get our first taste of the field at the BMFA National Flying Centre! Please get your entries in ASAP. Unlike our normal events late entries can be tricky (sorry for highlighting this so late). Entries close on Friday 19th, this Friday! As usual, new entrants are very welcome and we will do our best to take care of you. Online entry link: https://www.barcs.co.uk/store/category/5-radioglide-entry/ Start time is 10am, so please aim to get there by about 9am to get yourselves set up to be ready.

    Now in its 38th year, Radioglide will be the first organised event to take place at the BMFA National Flying Centre 27th-29th May at Buckminster near Grantham and is being held prior to the official opening in the summer. The field itself is huge and we will be running two flight lines each day which will allow a combined Open and 100S competition and an F5B (F3Be) event to be run on Saturday, F3K and ELG (run to the proposed new rules) on Sunday (see Bulletin) and F5J on Monday.

    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

    Radioglide 2016 Entry

    Entry is now open for Radioglide 2016. The event will take place from 28th - 30th May at Tudor Farm, Marsh Gibbon Road, HP18 0UA. BARCS Membership is Mandatory for 100s and Multilaunch events. Double entries will be accepted for Multilaunch event, so you might fly any two different classes of model in the one event. As F5J, F3J and F3K competitions are BMFA League Events, BARCS Membership is not necessary. Camping There is NO camping available on the field. Arrangements have been made at Gubbins Hole Farm which is a Caravan Club registered site about half a mile away (post code OX

    Radioglide 2015 report and results

    Once again it is my pleasure to collate an overall report for Radioglide, thanks to Alan Morton and Mike Fantham for the 100S and F3K reports. I hope my memory of events is correct, it was certainly a busy three days! Full results are available on the forum in their respective sections. Photos are either mine (F5J/F3J/Multi-launch) or Graham James (100S). Saturday F5J This increasing popular electric glider discipline attracted 12 competitors, I believe it was eight last year. The weather forecast predicted light winds, staying dry with an overcast sky, which was pretty much what we had. Des

    Radioglide 2014 Results and Report

    I was asked if I could collate the results and happenings at Tudor Farm for this year’s Radioglide competition so here’s my attempt! Saturday 24 May Two competitions were held on Saturday, F5J in one field and 100S across the road in the other. The day started with heavy rain and did not initially look promising so I held off at home until lunchtime, on the drive over from Brackley the weather improved greatly. The F5J started around 1:30, very ably directed by Bernie Jones. This was my first F5J competition and I found it very interesting in comparison to F3J, lots of tactics involved, do

    Radioglide 2014

    In spite of complaints that Radioglide 2013 did not provide enough events for the electric launched gliders, thus the staging of a Multilaunch competition this year, the entry level was very disappointing at only eight. Due to the poor forecast for the week end one of the eight did not attend, so cutting the final flyers to seven. This forced an, on-the-day re-matrix which was successfully implemented by CD Terry Weeks giving each flyer five fights and also ensuring that no-one flew against any other specific competitor more than twice. As it happened the we

    Radioglide 2014

    Well yet again Radioglide provided a challenging days flying. A flurry of late entries meant we had 14 pilots entered with at least 5 of the usual suspects missing for various reasons. The original CD Simon Jones suffered a devastating family bereavement shortly before the event and obviously had much more important things on his mind than model flying at a very difficult time for the whole family. Our thoughts are with them as they struggle to come to terms with their loss. Tonk Hickson and the Mike’s (Stern and

    Radioglide 2013 Report and Results

    What a weekend. Dry, bright and for the most part, warm weather, Radioglide hasn’t had it so good for many a year. Maybe it was the cross border hop into Buckinghamshire with the county trying to prove its supremacy over neighbouring Oxfordshire but whatever, our three days on Tudor Farm, just a couple of miles from the old Marsh Gibbon site proved to be a great success. A new site was required after the farmer at Marsh Gibbon decided to plough up and crop the old field. Peter Allen, ferried around the skies over Bicester by Gary Binnie in a Tiger Moth, spotted two superb fields and Peter mad

    Radioglide 2013 Information

    Radioglide 2013 is being held over the late May Bank Holiday weekend 25th – 27th May. Due to the ploughing up of our traditional field the event is moving to a new location just a couple of miles away at Tudor Farm, Marsh Gibbon HP18 0UA. The full schedule of events can be found on the entry form but they include 2 Team Trials for F3J (over 2 days) and F3K. This means that these events are open to non-BARCS members. We are grateful to the SFTC for granting us the honour of hosting these two important calendar dates. As a bonus to BARCS members, if you enter one of the two Team Trial events, y
  21. Hi Guys   I want to take part in the f5j event at Radioglide. What device should I get for my model, to enable me to take part?   A device that also functions as a height limiter would be good for practice and in case I ever take part in a height limited comp.   Cheers Tom

    Radioglide 2012 Report & Results

    Radioglide was again affected by the weather, although we did enjoy 3 full days flying out of the four offered by the extended bank holiday. This was slightly frustrating because the normal time for the event, end of May weekend enjoyed beautiful weather. However this year the bank holiday moved back a week so we, along with much of the rest of the Nation, suffered a very wet Sunday, forcing the cancellation of the Multi-launch event. This was unfortunate as it removed an opportunity to see how the electric launched gliders (now with a 150 meter height limiter cut off) performed relative to th
