2013 New Years Day Postal Woody Contest
New Years Day Postal Woody Contest
To all world wide it is time to get ready for the new year.
So on that note I will be holding the New Years Day Postal Contest!
The contest will be here on this thread on RC Groups. Please spread the word to all your club friends!
Here are the guide lines that we all should follow!
Unlimited flights to get to the goal of longest thermal flight wins!
In the spirit of the old days the plane needs to be constructed of WOOD!
No molded LE wing parts.
The span can be any size.
Glass fuse OK.
"Sniffers" Don't need one!
Only one flight counts!
Please no slope flights
The winner gets a trophy! It will be small!
Added Note: If there is a tie for the longest flight of the day - the flight made at lowest temperature wins.
The flying site with the lowest temperature of the day deserves a mention as well.

Does the NES Jade count as a woody? Full wood sheeting over what I suspect is a foam core, glass fuse and built up balsa vertical and horizontal stabilizers? 100" wingspan...
Launch Method ?????
Are Self launchers out ?
plan A = Oly2
plan B = self launcher electric Ultra MkIV woody (200w motor- dreadful crawl/climb :rolleyes: )
john s. in riverside
ps - will promote this at Riverside ISS...
would a Sensor 117 qualify for this event? It's got a fiberglass fuse but wings, tail and rudder are build up ...
Well after thinking about this for a few days and looking over the past contest rules from others. I will be making a new class this year to accommodate self launching gliders. Check the details above.
