  1. BMFA League Reserve 2 will take place on Sunday 16th September at Whitesheet. In the event of an unfavourable wind direction, Stu has also managed to procure the use of the Rifle Range slope by kind permission of the Avon hang gliding & paragliding club which is not normally open to model flyers. We also have an option to run the competition at the Bwlch as a last resort if the wind direction is unsupported by any of the above slopes. Weather call and slope decision will be made on the evening of Friday 14th. Entry for the competition will open on Wednesday 5th September at 10 p.m. and will close on Wednesday 12th September at 10 p.m. We are also now requesting that payment for league competitions is done through PayPal on the entry form. We will accept cash on the day, but pre-payment through PayPal will be preferred as it makes life easier for the organisers.
  2. Hi All, The BMFA F3f League calendar for 2018 is now available to view at http://www.gbsra.co.uk/f3f-calendar-2018 It's a bit of a short year because of the World Championships at the end of the year and because we have reduced the total number of events in the League.

    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 thread, in the meantime there should be some photos below. Cheers Gary

  24. Hi All The SRFC are hosting a BMFA F5J League event at Ashurst, West Sussex on Sunday 12th April 2015- Upper Northover Farm, Ashurst, West Sussex, BN44 3AL A £10.00 entry fee (BMFA RULES) is payable at sign in for the event on the day plus an additional £5.00 altimeter hire fee should you not have you own unit. This is a domestic BMFA F5J event and open eSoaring firmware will be allowed with the Height limit set to off or 300m, which will allow motor restarts, but any restart will be scored as a zero score in the round. This will be run as a 7 round competition without fly off. With only one scoring flight attempt per round/slot. The 2015 BMFA F5J League has an Open and 2 meter class both classes are flown in the same round/slot as per eSoaring just make sure you let us know which class you are flying in. We hope to be running my flight display timer at this event to try it out this will be showing the preparation time followed by the slot time for each slot, the scoring program will be announcing the Rounds/Groups and also the names for each group. At the end of your flight you will give your score into the microphone and it will be recorded automatically. The scoring program will run the competition allowing me to fly; so if you have any complaints re the running of the competition you can also give those to the program through the microphone and they will be sorted by the same. At the end of the competition the computer will announce the winner, and you will be called forward where you will see a selection of wines in the screen, this computer is a touch screen so you will just have to touch the bottle you would like, which will then be printed out on the 3D printer, ready for you to take with you within about five minutes. We hope you enjoy the new PC way of running these comps which might be a few days late but still will be the 1st comp run of its kind in April. Proof of insurance cover (Current BMFA membership card is sufficient) will be required on the first occasion you fly at any BMFA F5J league event in 2015. Full details of the competition can be found here where you can also post your entry http://www.esoaring.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2873 Cheers Bernie
  25. Colin Paddon triumphs as 2014 British Nationals F3J champion This year’s F3J Nationals was a real mixed bag, flying in airs which were nicely thermally for one slot, followed by widespread sink for the next. Sunday at the Nationals was a comfortable day with only moderate winds but with the prospect of heavy wind and rains for the second scheduled day. Many of the country’s leading pilots suffered miserable flights while more modest pilots walked away with 1,000 points, much to their surprise.   Looks relaxed, but the BMFA Nationals F3J contest managed to fly eight rounds on the Sunday contest, with no flyoffs, and then called it a day in view of the dire weather forecast for Bank Holiday Monday.   Congratulations to Colin Paddon, Mark Devall who had won the 100 inch contest the day before, and Graham Wicks who had also won the F5J contest on Saturday: they came first, second and third respectively in the F3J contest. Colin Paddon who had had a frustrating time at the World Championships a few weeks earlier, hit a consistency with six slots of 1,000 points each, and his dropped round was a 998.3 points flight. Team UK who had fared modestly in Martin, Slovakia a few weeks before, struggled at times but all came in the top six places at Cranwell. On a day of real challenge it was good to see Chas Dunster with a 1,000 and four rounds in the high 900s to give himself ninth place, and he spotted well for his team. Another encouraging performance was put in by Andre Borowski with three 1,000s, but he could have done with an extra throwaway score. Graham James, Barcs esteemed President, had a consistent day with scores rather higher than usual to gain 10th place in the field. All pilots deserved praise for remaining keen over a long day, 33 slots in an eight hour day kept everyone busy. The big rush was caused by the prospect of high winds and almost continuous rain forecast for Bank Holiday Monday. In the end contest director recommended that the contest should be curtailed and Monday was abandoned, and none of the pilots protested that decision. Over the past three years, the BMFA F3J league on which the British team is chosen for the next World or European championships - next year due to be held in Dupnitsa, Bulgaria - has been based on three two day events. Normally this means that the contests can have eight or more rounds and flyoff rounds where slot times go up to 15 minutes, said to be closer to the standards required at international level. Good thinking, but this year the weather has conspired to prevent flyoffs at Radioglide and the Nationals. That cannot be controlled, but good luck to next year’s UK Team! Sydney Lenssen. Results
