Hello dear F5J pilot, the Petirrojo RC modelling club invites you to join out 7th edition for F5J Masters (http://www.f5jmasters.com). This year we made a big change in order to offer a more international contest. We will be flying F5J using FAI rules and we expect to make more than 10 qualifying flights and 3 flyoffs. This edition is part of the Eurocontest F5J calendar in Spain. The location is fantastic (Escalona del Prado, Spain), the field is 2kms long and 400m wide with no obstacles. It was used as a flying field during the Spanish Civil War. We offer camp for home motors and camping and a very nice weather in June (25-30º). At the same time we offer a fantastic venue for the pilots and their partners: Segovia. Segovia is 35kms from the field and offer some of the best places to visit in Spain. Segovia has been awarded by UNESCO as one of the World Heritage Cities. The Roman aqueduct of Segovia, probably built c. A.D. 50, is remarkably well preserved. This impressive construction, with its two tiers of arches, forms part of the setting of the magnificent historic city of Segovia. Other important monuments include the Alcázar, begun around the 11th century, and the 16th-century Gothic cathedral. * Aqueduct of Segovia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aqueduct_of_Segovia * Alcazar of Segovia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcázar_of_Segovia Dates: 16th and 17th June 2017 Location: Escalona del Prado, Segovia, Spain (1h15min from Madrid Barajas Airport) Registration: http://www.f5jmasters.com Sponsors: Vinco by Tecnoepoxy, iHobbies, RoiImport, City Council of Escalona del Prado, Hotel el Zaguán.

Well it's started and it's started well. Spent a few very very nice hours with Vic and Silv last night before jumping on the overnight ferry to Le Harve. Millpond -- Great drive down through France today, wall to wall sunshine, up to 20degrees, no traffic, no hassle and the last hour or so though the Midi Pyrennes was simply stunning. If you drew a perfect hansell & grettle cottage thats where we are staying. The Owner lives next door in and has an easy glider in the barn and wants some help getting it to fly. There will be no problem launching from the house and even slopeing if the wind turns a little. I will post a few pics in the next few days. Tomorrow its an hours drive to Panat to take part in the 2 day French Championship F3f being organised by Andreas Fricke. He normally does a great job so I am looking forward to a good few days.
