    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.

    RCSD-F3-RES Article(s)

    Great article in RCSD last month about F3-RES contest in the US of A www.rcsoaringdigest.com/pdfs/RCSD-2018/RCSD-2018-02.pdf
  17. We (the F3-RES class promoters) have decided to run an annual league to encourage entries into the 2m Hi-Start Challenge events. The league will end after closure of the final Challenge that was started in 2017. I have offered to maintain the league and we have established a simple table with scores calculated by normalising submitted scores. We expect that there will be about 15 challenges through the year. The top 6 individual normalised scores will count to the final score so there is plenty of time to get involved. Basic Rules Scores reported in seconds and are collected from the BARCS 2m Hi-Start Challenge posts on BARCS Forum. Please submit your score on the Challenge posting - even if it's below the current high score. (This also shows that models are being flown) Individual challenge score is normalised from "Entrants best submitted score for the Challenge/Best Submitted Score*100" for each Challenge period Total Annual Aggregated Score will be the top 6 Normalised scores. In the event of a tie then the 7th Normalised score will count and so on

    Mad Hatter F3-RES

    Sticking my neck out a bit again.. Those following the F3-RES discussion in "Thermal and F3J" may understand my enthusiasm for the class. I have had my thinking head on for a couple of days and this is my contribution to the class (so far and will probably be amended as we move along). Details are: 2m span (just under) AG35 wing section Carbon boom and vladimir mount from Hyperflight Carbon caps in the wing - top and bottom - but no Kevlar wrapping Tailplane is scaled down from Bubble Dancer (again). Fin and sub fin is scaled down from Cheshire Cat Root Chord is 235mm straight tapering to 155mm at the wing tip Target mass is 0.75kg - possibly lighter if I am extra careful - wing loading about 190g/dm^2 with the capability for lots of ballast if needed a few numbers. Any thoughts on this?
