  1. A placeholder for the 10th 2021 F3-RES/F5-RES Combined 14 day duration postal. 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.

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.

  11. Hi all Looking for feedback. I am planning to run the F3-RES league in 2021 (if that is OK with you lot ) However, I would like to make a few changes to clarify and hopefully encourage participants. Firstly, I would like to restrict entry to any sub 2m class glider providing it is not fitted with camber changing components - i.e. flaps or ailerons. At this stage, we will continue with no material restrictions - i.e. all foam models would be permitted although models with fully moulded carbon or glass reinforced skins would not be permitted. Models to F3-RES rules would of course be permitted. As all models entered this year have been F3-RES, I cannot see a problem with this clarification point. I am suggesting a couple of alternatives to the current league scoring method and also perhaps the format of the event. Personally, I would like to see the event to move to a more traditional contest format instead of the one big flight. In all cases, league scoring would be 10 points for 1st, 7 points for second, 5 points for 3rd then 4,3,2,1 points for the next 4 places. Flights will complete when the model lands in the launch field or within 300m of the launch point is no field boundary is defined. Option 1. We continue with the same single reported flight with no max. Option 2. A competitor will make 3 flights (launches) within a 60 minute launch window. The flight maximum will be either 10 minutes or 5 minutes (to be debated). There is no penalty for over-running the flight maximum but the flight score is capped at 10 (or 5) minutes. The objective is to promote consistency. The competitor must declare the start of the launch window (the first launch) and the launch times of the 2nd and 3rd flights. For example, a 10 minute flight will score 600 points, a 9:55 flight will score 595 points and a 10:15 flight will score 600 points. Option 3. As per option 2 except that time is deducted for flights exceeding the flight maximum. For example, a 10 minute flight will score 600 points, a 9:55 flight will score 595 points and a 10:15 flight will score 585 points. Option 4. A competitor makes consecutive flights starting with a minimum 2 minute target, if he/she is successful then attempts a 3 minute target. If successful, he/she attempts for a 4 minute target and this continues with 1 minute increments until he/she fails to achieve the next full minute. The reported score would be the last full minute successfully achieved plus the failing score. So, for example, if a competitor achieves 2 minutes, then 3 minutes then only 1:55 on the 4 minute attempt, his score would be 4:55 (3 +1:55). All flights to be taken with a 2 hour launch window. All flights to be made consecutively. We are all aware that these models, on a calm day with good lift, are capable of excellent thermalling capability. I would like to move away from the emphasis of the one big flight and adopt a more contest orientated format for the event. In all cases, it requires integrity on the competitor but as the only prize on offer is improved self esteem and awe of your fellow competitors then I cant really see a problem. Can we have a discussion please? Thanks Martyn
