    F3-RES UK Competition Interest

    For those that don't know F3-RES is a new high-start launched woody 2m RES glider class that originated in Germany and Austria that is becoming very popular internationally. For more info see this RCGroups F3-RES Resources thread and the other threads marked F3-RES in the RCGroups. The kits are easy to buy from European retailers. The benefits of these models and the proposed event over alternatives are - Low cost - Quick building woody models - Requires building as well as flying skills - Easy to fly RES (rudder-elevator-spoiler) models - Simple task - 6 min flight in a 9 min slot - Standardised weak hi-start so not a power race - Low launch altitude (60m-110m depending on the field/high start length) I am thinking of running a series of competitions, probably from the Pillerton Hersey field in Warwickshire, and would like to know if there is any interest in this from this gliding community. BTW I will develop a set of rules closely based on the German rules so molded composite 2m models will not be allowed. Please post to this thread if interested. Neil.
  2. A placeholder for the 3rd 2m Hi-Start 14 day duration Challenge for 2018 Please submit your score below. The clock will start when the first score is submitted. This is a for fun challenge, anyone with a bungee-launched glider up to 2 metres wingspan and the standard Hi-Start can post a time. Object: Fly your 2 metre glider for as long as possible from a flat field, the person who's time is unbeaten for 14 days 'wins' and a new challenge starts. Rules: Launches must be made from the standard Challenge Hi-Start bungee. Flight times begin when line releases from the towhook and the model must land in the field for times to count. While the object is to encourage F3-RES types, any model up to 2 metre span may be flown (F3-RES, foam, full house aileron mouldie) but please state the type of model with your time. The standard Hi-Start bungee is amaximum of 10m of 6/4mm surgical tubing and 50m of static line (minimum 30lb breaking strain). Lighter/smaller bungees may be used. Fly safely! No slope soaring.
  3. Full details of this event can be found on the FlyQuiet forum
