  1. Competition 28th is off. Sorry to disappoint - explanation below There will be an F5J competition Sunday 28 July at Bartletts Field, Rettendon, Essex. 9-45 briefing for 10am start, please. Scores will count for the BMFA League but this will be a relaxed competition suitable for new as well as experienced competitors, with plenty of help available for newcomers. The competition will be run to F5J rules with UK variations as published by the BMFA. The main points for BMFA F5J comps are: - Either Open or 2m may be flown, not both. - Motor restart may be used (results in a zero flight score), and therefore non-FAI firmware set to at least 300m may be used. - Your timekeeper must be able to check your launch height immediately after landing (so you need a reader if not displayed on your height limiter). - The hope is to fly 6 rounds - minimum of 4 . No fly-offs. Entry fee £10.00 (BMFA requirement) payable on the day. Proof of insurance (BMFA membership card is sufficient) required Please sign up on this thread or by emailing me: whitstable.nick@outlook.com (I'm guesting as CD). Please include your BMFA number. Entries will be assumed to be Open 2.4GHz unless you tell me different. Closing date for entries is 6.00pm Friday 26 July 2019. If there's any doubt about the weather, a decision on whether the contest goes ahead will be posted here by 3pm Saturday 27 July. Registrations as of 26 July: Brian Austin Mike Connell Ray Gadenne John Hovell Nick Jackson Steve Knowles Peter Ley Garry Matthews Tony Merritt Peter Mitchell Ian Nicholls Eddy Small Randy Taylor Paul Wainwright

    Bartletts League 9th Sept 2012

    What a day of contrasts! Arriving at the field, there was a thick mist over the site so as to see where the control would be for anybody turning up meant I had to stay at the entrance to pass it on to the next arrival, then they could inform the next person and so on. By 10am start, this had cleared to reveal a perfect day with a slight breeze from the South, which then followed the forecast by increasing to approx 15 mph by 2.30pm. This was to lead to some scores suffering as a result and a struggle for some models to get back when venturing to far downwind. Rod Potts was to fare worse in this by losing his Electra V, which has not been found as of the present time. Peter Mitchell was again to suffer a malfunction on his Explorer, when the bell crank pivot failed, causing the model to dive into the ground whilst on launch. A new face to Bartletts Comp was Colin Boorman, although Colin is a regular on the F3j circuit. He was doing well until old habits die hard, by dorking his Shadow in for the landing, dislodged the motor plate. Jill Adams was also a new face, although she had flown in the Tonbridge event at the beginning of August. Think she will get better with the right model. Paul Wainwright has invested some money in an ex Ray Elwell Sprite, so expect we will see him going for the 2 metre class now. My unfashionable Watts Up 2 metre, can still keep up there with them all in the right conditions. I elected not to fly in the last round as I could not bother changing the wings over to the windy set, as the wind was quite strong by then. I did say that we may try to run the last event on the 23rd September, as the reserve date in October does not leave us any options if for any reason that date is ruled out due to weather. We will see from the end of this week what the forecast is for the 23rd. Ordered Results, least score dropped 1000 4996.6 K. Fisher (Open) Shadow 999 4993.7 A. Twine (Open) Stork4 984 4919.3 B.

    Bartletts League 15th May 2011

    Well, we seem to be stuck in this spell of weather that delivers high winds & sunshine, with the former being decidedly unseasonal for May. But having to abort the one scheduled for the 1st May due to windy conditions that proved to be correct, Sunday was not the greatest either, especially with the wind being in the West, delivering the dreaded Bartletts curl over, on the landing approach. Dave Fletcher ducked out on the Saturday, then Peter Hindle, Peter Mitchell 2 metre & George Read, elected not to fly on the day due to the conditions. Peter Hindle filled me with dread on arrival with the quote that the wind was going to increase to 30MPH in the afternoon. But this proved not to be the case, so we ot under way with 16 flyer's. This was cut to 13 after the first round due to various problems from motors falling out through to damage on landing. I myself decided that discretion was better than valour, so never really went for the landing spot if it got tricky. There were some slots where the lift was tremendous, more than I can remember from this wind direction at any time I have flown there. Peter Hindle had to work overtime with the scoring system as slots were adjusted from what he had arranged before the event. As he said he could not have flown & done this as well, so another big thank you to him on the day. So we finished early at about 3.30 pm, with the final scores ready about 3 minutes later. Finally thanks to all for your continued support for these events, lets have a few more next time on 19th June. Brian Austin.

    Bartletts League 3rd April 2011

    The forecast in the week was pretty vague but checked out several sites & the Sunday looked as though it would be OK. This indeed was the case, with conditions that would be hard to better in the summer. Bartletts itself may have been a problem as the entrance to the field has been extremely boggy with some members having to be pulled out, and not so long ago at that. We had 21 entries of which 3 did not show for whatever reason, but Randy Taylor turned up and took one of the spares, so we had 19 fly on the day. Trouble is that not having children, my notion of when Mothers Day is, does not enter into the equation when planning events The only change to the rules for this year was to bring them into line with BARCS rules in regards to the landing. Now if you overfly the 10 minutes you lose any landing points you may have obtained, but retain your flight score up to the 10 minutes. The conditions in the morning were absolutely idillic with little wind and warm sunshine, so much so that the early morning dew soon dissipated. There was only one major disaster when Peter Mitchell's AVA plunged into the ground from a great height due to a dry joint on one of the connectors to the battery Seven rounds were flown with 3 slots per round which made it pretty hectic if you were flying twice with two entry's. Peter Hindle has now refined the scoring system and the slot timing, having said that we had a glitch on the slot timer for the first slot as he still had the lap top on mute sound! I know I have said this before, but I could not run this event now without Peter's help, he is invaluable to the whole thing. But we have got him to take part yesterday, which he enjoyed. Results are shown below, if anybody wishes to have the full set of results e mail me & I will send them on to you. Pictures to follow when we have some that Peter took, but I believe Jason is going to post some. 5760.8 B. Austin (Open) 5695.3 P. Sainsbury (Open) 5684.6 A. Twine (Open) 5551.7 R.
