    BMFA Nationals 2017 100S

    Just a short write up, we had a lovely day!!! Afraid I won't be writing any articles for this Nationals (hoorah they say!) but I did fly the 100S, eSoaring and F5J and took some photos. Weather was great, the lift wasn't always easy to find or stay in. We experienced the novelty of hammering winch turnround stakes into the hallowed turf of the new Buckminster runway! The three man fly off of two rounds was flown by Kevin Newett, Alan Morton and John Shenstone, I need to learn from these guys! Thanks to Simon V for running the comp, he may add the official results to this th

    100S Competitions?

    I've been considering building a 100S model as it seems a reasonable starting point for a newcomer to competitive gliding competitions and I'm half an hour from Twywell where they hold the Mike Lucas series. A few comments on here have suggested that 100S is less common than it was, so is it worth my time getting into? I'm not likely to buy a more expensive Open model so the simplicity of 100S appeals. Also Googling the rules has confused me somewhat. So far I've got 100" max projected span and RES. But is there a minimum weight limit? Any help understanding how the competition works
  3. Just a gentle reminder about the BMFA 100S nationals which are being held at Twywell on the 4th September 2016. Entry forms are on www.bmfa-nats.org and entry is £12. I will be CD'ing the competition with David Varallo and we welcome all competitors. If you have any questions please drop me a line. Look forward to seeing you there. Simon Vaitkevicius

    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

    LiteFlight Ceases Manufacture

    Earlier in the month Rick Lloyd lost his workshop to a devastating fire. This has bought production of the Tracker 100s and Claymore F3J to a halt, as all moulds, machinery, models etc. have been lost causing the cessation of business for LiteFlight UK, the only UK based moulded model manufacturer. The Tracker in particular has been a perennial feature of the 100s competition scene and the loss of this model could have a marked effect on this class. The Tracker is a brilliant sport/competition thermal soarer, as well as light wind slope model and has been many a

    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 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

    Peterborough Winter Series 2012 Round 6

    The last round of the 2011/12 winter series took place on Sunday 11th March, we had 14 entries. After cancelling the February comp due to bad weather it was a real treat to be greeted with perfect gliding weather, not only sun but also very warm with a gentle breeze. Round 1 started at around 10.30 and we soon found lift, the lowest time during the first slot was 9.00mins!! We carried on flying and the only concern was losing site of models escalating into the blue sky. Round 1,2,3 and 4 proved very enjoyable ind

    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 opt
