  1. Basic Rules Scores reported in minutes: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 No flight information telemetry permitted Note new scoring: 1st = 15 points, 2nd = 12 points, 3rd =10 points then 9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 points for the next 9 places. As usual, I'll keep editing this top post as the league table progresses.
  2. A placeholder for the 7th combined 2M F3-RES, F5-RES 14 day duration Challenge for 2021. This is an experimental event and the rules may be altered for subsequent challenges. Please submit your score below. The 14 day clock will start when the first score is submitted and will restart if and when the current high score has been beaten. This is a for fun challenge for UK based pilots, anyone may enter with EITHER 1. a bungee-launched glider up to 2 metres wingspan and the standard Hi-Start can post a time. The standard Hi-Start bungee is a maximum of 10m of 6/4mm surgical tubing and 50m of static line (minimum 30lb breaking strain). Lighter/smaller bungee rubber may be used. OR 2. an Electric motor launched glider up to 2 metre wingspan fitted with an Altitude Limiter set to 60m and a maximum motor run time of 20 seconds. 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: Flight times begin when line releases from the tow-hook or in the case of an electric motor powered glider, 20 seconds after the hand launch. The model must land in the launch field for times to count. While the object is to encourage F3/F5-RES types, any model up to 2 metre span may be flown (F3/F5-RES, foam, R/E mouldie) but please state the type of model with your time. Note that ailerons or other camber changing devices fitted are no longer permitted, even if disabled. No Flight information telemetry permitted except for Received signal strength and Receiver battery status. Fly safely! No slope soaring

  5. There has been some discussion on various posts about a new F5-RES class and what the rules should look like. This post is intended as a discussion post to hopefully pool some ideas. F5-RES kits and ARTF airframes are already available from various specialist suppliers. 1. Airframe construction and restriction rules should be the same as F3-RES. 2. Regarding open events, I can't see why the class could not be run in parallel (as a sub class) with existing F5J events to the same sets of rules. 3. If the class is to be run in parallel with F3-RES events then perhaps the following. Motor Run maximum 20 seconds Altitude limited to 130m The reason for this is that you would need to limit how far upwind from the launch point a F5-RES could get - assuming its launched from the same line that a bungee launched F3-RES model is launched. F3-RES open rules use a 100m line and 15m bungee. Assume that a launch height of 100m plus any zoom gain. 130m seems reasonable as typically a F5-RES is carrying increased cross sectional area/drag and more mass - which would be advantageous in a breeze. This would also apply to a dedicated F5-RES event with a 6 minute flight task maximum 4. If the class is to be run in parallel with F3-RES small field events (e.g. BARCS postal) then perhaps the following. Motor Run maximum 15 seconds Altitude limited to 70m Your thoughts please. It appears that there will be a couple of F5-RES events in the UK next year (2021) and it would be nice to influence any rules in advance of an event.
