  21. Hi All, We (Being the team who run the F5B league - Alan, Steve, Dick, Greg, Mark) wanted to gauge opinion from the F3B(e) pilots on the forum as to what interest there would be in the F5B league running an F3Be league alongside our events? We have heard the unfortunate news there will be no F3B league in 2017 and wondering if there is a way in which we can help to some degree. What we are thinking is that we can slot the F3Be pilots into each of our rounds. This means fitting into a 3:20 speed task and 10min duration with spot landing. We have had some discussion amongst ourselves and have come up with a few ideas which we wanted to float... Given we think the speed task is the one most people want to practice we were thinking along the lines of: Round 1 - 2 x Speed (Which would involve climb to height limited altitude ie 200m and then do a speed run. Climb back to altitude and do a 2nd speed run) and then climb back to altitude and do 10 minute duration. We would expect the speed part of this task to take about 2 minutes per pilot - ie 20 sec climb - 10/20 sec to position plane and then speed run of up to 20 secs. The duration side of the timing would start when the motor is turned off. Round 2 - Distance task - We need to work out a time (2 to 3 minutes) for this but would be climb to altitude and then do as many legs in that time period as possible - All on one side of the course. Then after time is complete climb to altitude and do 10 minute duration task with spot landing. Round 3 - As Round 1 Round 4 - As Round 2 This way if the full 4 rounds were flown each pilot would have 4 speed sessions and 2 distance sessions. We could of course just drop the duration and do 3 or 4 climbs for speed - Depends on how many climbs a typical plane can manage. This is where we need input from the pilots to align the tasks with the abilities of the planes. A couple clarifications for starters - Electric Only (No winches) / 1 plane on the speed - distance task at a time / Need to use a height limiter which cuts the motor at x height / All flying in speed and distance tasks is done on one side of the course. The scoring would be normalised per round. But the exact details of this we can work out once we have interest What do people think? Open to ideas on what we can do with the Rounds but trying to find ways that having a slower climbing model wouldn't impact on a persons score. If people are interested we could hold a practice day in Jan / Feb to try out various methods and see how things work out. Alan

    BMFA F3F League 2015 Dates

    Hi All, Please see below dates for 2015 League dates and UK contests. We are still looking for a date for SlopeGlide this year at the Hole Of Horcum, because it is in the North it is likely we will use the 22nd & 23rd August however we are looking at as many options as possible as August was always the month used for the event. If there are any changes we will update through this thread and on the GBSRA website where theses dates can also be found. www.GBSRA.co.uk

    New UK F3F Record 26.84

    A new UK F3F record of 26.84 for Martin Newnham at the first BMFA F3F League event in 2013 Martin was amongst 6 others pilots that achieved sub 30 second runs in great condition on the Wrecker in Wales. Mark Redsell was the overall winner with Martin second and Joel West in 3rd place. See the forum topic here Martins full report below. “The start of the new season got off to a bang and what a BANG, I don’t think there has ever been anything quite like it in the UK before. Earlier in the week it looked like it would have to be cancelled due to issues at the scheduled location. Unfortunately Whitesheet is unable to provide all wind directions, therefore a decision was made to relocate to Wales after consulting with all the registered pilots and reopening registration should anyone else wish to participate. Andrzej Tabero kindly confirmed we were able take advantage of the slopes in Wales as they provide all directions. The direction we needed was ENE and this put us on what is regarded as UK’s best slope, the Wrecker, coupled with a 20 – 23 m\s wind speed and you have the right ingredients for a great competition. It was overshadowed by the potential of hill fog, but thankfully the weather gods were on our side and we didn't have one stoppage due to weather all day. Round 1 got on the way and after a few weeks before when Mark Abotts went sub thirty with his Caldera flying a 28.75 it wasn’t expected that we would see a time like this again anytime soon. How wrong we were, Joel West stepped up round one and posted a 29.46 a few pilots later and Martin Newnham went sub 30 with a 29.61. This wasn’t the finish of the round and Mark Redsell keen to get going, not only went sub 30 but broke the British record again flying a 28.73. The round contained many low to medium 30 + times. Round 2 the same 3 pilots went sub 30 again Mark getting close to his new British record. Joining Mark, Martin and Joel was Paul Garnett with his first sub 30 and new PB flying a 29.24. Tony Livingstone having only attended a few winter league events made yet another improvement on his PB going from a 37.37 down to a 34.94. Ian Falconer only started flying last year and has also only attended a couple of competitions to find out what it’s all about, was getting times in the mid forties, which may not seem fast to some but it you know the Wrecker it’s not for the faint hearted especially in 20 – 23m\s wind. Round 3 see Joel West just slip into the low 30’s but Martin Newnham and Mark Redsell still were trading blows. Martin Newnham broke the UK record with a 26.84, but Mark wasn’t going to give anything away with a 29.97. Richard Bago was also getting closer to going sub 30 but not yet. Round 4 Joel West was back with a sub 30 time, but not quite fast enough and Martin Newnham just took the round with 29.11. Mark Redsell again was not too far behind and still less than 30 seconds with a 29.71. Round 5 and Richard Bago finally got what he was looking for, posting a new PB 29.44 and his first sub30, again Mark Redsell was still there taking the round with 28.79. Martin Drewett got a new PB and first sub 40 time with a 37.98 and improved on this again in the next round, posting a 34.20. Round 6 and Stuart Wallace who is relatively new to F3F competitions was already having a good day and up to this point his slowest time had been 40 seconds posted a 35.80 and I think a PB, his remaining round was over 40 seconds but 5 sub forties from 7 rounds is great flying by any standards. Joel West got his final sub 30 of the day to take round 6, with Richard Bago in second and Mark Abotts in third. The 7th and final round and Mark Redsell posted his 6 sub 30 of the day to take the last round, followed by Joel in second and Mark Abotts in third. To summarise, all of the above equalled an epic day in South Wales for everyone, regardless of whether you went sub 30, sub 40 or improved slightly on previous times. The conditions provided some of the best conditions I have personally ever flown in and I am sure others would echo this view. I would like to thank everyone who helped out on the day but special mention must go to Simon Thornton getting the course up and CDing with me. Richard Bago, our buzzer supreme and everyone that spent time out on the buzzers. Stuart Wallace for taking on the task of debt collecting (entry fees). Finally Joel West, Mark Abotts, Paul Garnett who must have a right arm like popeye’s as they did most of the launches for everyone all day.” 1st Mark Redsell (Freestyler 4 ) 2nd Martin Newnham (Freestyler 4) 3rd Joel West (Freestyler 4) Fastest time of the Day Martin Newnham 26.84 Full Results below: 1 Mark Redsell 5928.66 1000.00 2 Martin Newnham 5866.32 989.48 3 Joel West 5784.75 975.72 4 Rich Bago 5652.05 953.34 5 Paul Garnett 5497.41 927.26 6 Mark Abotts 5304.84 894.77 7 Simon Thornton 5281.98 890.92 8 Mike Evans 5202.24 877.47 9 Keith Wood 4800.16 809.65 10 Frank Hulton 4741.58 799.77 11 Tony Livingston 4588.84 774.00 12 Mark Treble 4549.52 767.37 13 Stuart Wallace 4535.37 764.99 14 Martin Drewett 4294.41 724.34 15 Mike Shellim 4280.46 721.99 16 Tom Macpherson 4205.83 709.40 17 Graeme Mahoney 2741.89 462.48 18 Ian Mason 2624.26 442.63 19 Ian Falconer 1759.16 296.72 20 Mick Walsh 1422.15 239.87 21 John Treble 598.04 100.87

    League Summary 2012

    Sunday 7th October marked the end of the BARCS 2012 Soaring Leagues. This year more than any other, the weather played a huge part in the structure of the league. The lads in Scotland and particularly CD Andy Lewis had a largely disrupted programme. If it wasn't water from above, it was flooding from below as their fields were passed impassable on several occasions. Nevertheless a full series of events were flown and congratulations to all the class winners shown in the accompanying leagues. It’s also good to see a number of new names competing and also some new cream rising to the top. Certificates will be issued prior to the AGM and current trophy holders contacted regards redistribution of the silverware. And the Neil Webb All-Rounder League will be published in due course. So season 2013 begins. The Peterborough Winter series will be of interest to those in the South and East wishing to get an early start in the Open League. Thanks to all the CD’s on behalf of BARCS for their resilience in organising some great events. We look forward to receiving details of your events for inclusion in the Soaring Calendar. Graham James
