  1. Full details and entry will be on the BARCS – Aircraft - Kent Interclub Forum This is an open competition and non Kent club members are very welcome (entry fee £5). The rules are BARCS Multilaunch for Electric launch gliders. Electric Gliders must be fitted with an AMRT (height limiter) which cuts the motor at 30 secs and records the launch height. Electric launch height of 175m with a penalty of 3 pts per metre for Electric launches exceeding it. Most pilots will want to set AMRTs to cut a little below 175m. It is fine instead to use F5J firmware and cut the motor manually. S

  11. ALTIS v4+ WARNING - cable issue!!! AerobTec WARNING - cable issue!!! Dear customers, based on several reports received from some of you in August this year we discovered that some of the devices have an issue with the input or output cables caused by our cable supplier. It seems some of the cables have incorrect crimping of the wire which was not discovered during the quality check, since the devices behaved normally and there was no suspicion about it. The crimping issue might lead to interrupted of some of the connections on the way between the receiver and ESC which might

  13. A firm called Designboom have flown a glider powered solely by an ION drive for the first time this year. The drive has NO moving parts and uses no combustible fuel, fossil or otherwise ‘It took a long time to get here,‘ said Ken Barrett. An MIT engineer in charge of the project ‘going from the basic principle to something that actually flies was a long journey of characterizing the physics, then coming up with the design and making it work, now the possibilities for this kind of propulsion system are viable.’ The original idea came from an episode of “Star Trek” Ken admitted….then

  24. I bought several old balsa gliders from a guy that I think enjoyed building more than flying. The most interesting are two tailless gliders that are similar but not quite the same, one at 60" span (not flown) and the other just 36". They are around 20 years old (two Futaba FP-T5N Callenger Txs came in the lot), the method of mixing the elevons is mechinical at the servos. The link to the elevons are just rods out of the fuselage that sits between to rods out the end of each elevon.   I've attached some photos below, does anyone know what they might be? Name? maker? and where the CoG mig
