  1. COMPETITION CANCELLED ---- COMPETITION CANCELLED ---- COMPETITION CANCELLED Cancellatiion of this comp will come as no surprise to you all with the weather forecast for Sunday 22nd September being particularly grim with Rain/Thunderstorms forecast.

Because of this the organisers would now like to solicit your thoughts/opinion as to whether in future we should consider changing over to the Saturday/Sunday format whe

  8. This the final round of the Eastern League this year, and will take place at Little Bentley Polo Ground, nr Colchester, Essex on Sunday 25th September. This is a change of venue on previously advertised listings. As before, if weather conditions at the time indicate that Sunday is going to be un-flyable, then we would try to use Saturday 24th to avoid a cancellation.. Please indicate if you are able to enter on either day or just one. Sunday will always take precedence over Saturday as long as the weather is OK for the Sunday.

  9. RESULTS & REPORT What a cracking days soaring it turned out to be with even the weather cooperating! With an entry of 28 pilots which dropped down to 25 on the day we looked set for a good days soaring. 25 entries ensured that it would still be one of the largest F5J comps held this year in the UK. Very pleasing for us the organizers as it makes all the considerable pre-comp work worthwhile. We are very lucky in that here in the SE corner of the country to have a lot of electric soaring pilots who are happy to support our comps. Over the past 2 years we have tried to steadily imp

    How NOT to fly F5J

    The latest round of the F5J Eastern League was very challenging for some of us. And for me it was a day of mostly wrong choices. But I did have one flight which was especially pleasing, and this download graph of the flight shows just how not to do an F5J launch. Don’t launch into sink, but if you do, don’t give up
  11. Due to another change in circumstances, this third round of the Eastern League will take place at Bartletts Farm nr.Chelmsford, Essex on Sunday 5th June, not Little Bentley as has been previously advertised on forums and in the BMFA comp. calendar. As before, if weather conditions at the time indicate that Sunday 5th is going to be unflyable, then we would hope to use Saturday 4th to avoid another cancellation.. Please indicate if you are able to enter on either day or just one. Sunday will always take precedence over Saturday as long as the weather is OK for the Sunday. Your mod
  12. Our first round of the league was due to be run at Bartletts Farm. But due to unforseen circumstances I am unable to run it, and the comp will now be run at the excellent Lt.Bentley site near Colchester, Essex. CD will now be Russell Mexome If weather conditions at the time indicate that Sunday 24th will be unflyable, we then hope to use Saturday 23rd. Please indicate if you are able to enter on either day or just one. Sunday will always take precedence over Saturday as long as the weather is OK for the Sunday.

  13. Just in case this has now been noticed, here is a copy of the latest news via Mike Proctor BMFA-SFTC Following a great deal of hard work from people in the UK and round the World, which resulted in the introduction of F5J as a contest at FAI level, then as a World Cup event, I am very pleased to tell you all that F5J has been accepted as a World Championship class. The recent CIAM Plenary meeting also voted that a World Championship should be flown in “odd” years. This means that a first World Championship is likely to be in 2019, so still time to build that new model! This is a great

    The 3 wire problem

    I have sometimes been asked how I deal with the 3 power wires which exit from the side of most out- runner motors. Because even if the fuselage is wide enough to mount the motor, it can be difficult to stop these 3 wires touching the rotating can part of the motor. I have tried most of the usual fixes, like gluing them to inside of the fus, or fitting a sleeve between the motor and wires, or even cutting the fus so that the wires pass outside the fus. The model I am putting together now needs a gearbox motor, but the fus is very restricted and motor wires touching the motor can is still a
  15. At last it is time to get ready for the first Bartletts League 200m competition. So for all those who can remember how to fly the first date is Sunday 3rd April. The format is unchanged other than the revision of our launch height rule. Entry £5 per model entered, max 2 models per person.3 classes to enter, Open, 2 Metre and 100" Please note that Sunday is always our preferred flying day. But if weather conditions look unfavourable, the preceding Saturday could be used Regular competitors will know that our flying field entrance is liable to becoming waterlogged whic
