We will be using the large (100 x 50 x 28 ft) sports hall at the College. The only restrictions are no radio models in the main hall and no internal combustion engines, jets or catapults anywhere.
Also Round The Pole (4.5 metre lines) and small electric helicopter and fixed wing flying (X twin or Vapour type) in a separate hall (radio or infra-red).
SAMS MODELS will be in attendance to supply all your needs on the day.
There will be two, low key free flight (and one car!) competitions:
- A Peanut event using a simplification of the usual international rules,. Maximum size of model either 13” span or 9” length excluding propeller
A GA drawing, photograph or any other proof that the actual aircraft existed.
A single judge for all entrants to award up to 30 scale points and up to 90 “difficulty bonus points”, the purpose being to encourage those flying models of difficult and adventurous prototypes
Any number of flights with a 10 second bonus for ROG.
Total of best two flights plus scale and bonus points to decide final score
The usual duration event for Bostonian models. Their was a healthy increase in Bostonian numbers at our last two meetings so let’s have even more this time. Any design to the Bostonian formula (If you are unclear about the Bostonian formula rules ring or email the contact below). Minimum airframe weight 14 gm and all flights to be ROG. Total score from best 3 flights
- For both competitions get your flights timed and reported to control. As many attempts as you like. Awards in each event for overall winner and best junior (under 18). Bostonians to be weighed. No builder of the model requirement in any competition. Build one for your wife (or husband), child or grandchild who just has to wind and launch
- We will also feature the Racing Car event as usual. This is a fun event for rubber powered cars. We vary the distance to be covered, number of heats etc depending on the entrants on the day! Ring or email below for any further information and for plans of suitable vehicles.
We would like models of all types in the exhibition and models other than aeroplanes are more than welcome. Bring whatever you like but please bring something (don’t be shy) as this is a feature much enjoyed by our visitors – both flyers and spectators. It is also a good way of showing our kind of modelling to the public.
The seminar will be given by Peter Smart and his subject will be his experience of eccentric indoor scale models and solving the problems they present!
