SEFF LMR Contest


Hi All,

Here's a place to talk about the sailplane contest.

1 Thursday starting at 0900

2 Rules

You can run your motor any time in the first two minutes of flight.

Then shut it off and thermal 10 minutes: 12 minutes total flight

Land in a 40 foot circle for 10 bonus points

Score is number of seconds of flight time, reduced for over or under flight, plus landing bonus: 12 min flight= 720 points+10 for a 730, perfect flight.

11:50 = 710, 12:10 = 710

We'll fly around four flights, and finish up by 1pm.

And you get 10 more bonus points if you're flying foam!

Count me in...can't wait!

BTW, have you asked Mac about mowing that area a little more before the event to knock the stubble down some? Sure would help.

This is good fun. Ric leads an organized, fair, fun event. I have seen Radians, Ascents and similar compete well with the high dollar sailplanes, and win/place/show. Give it a try. Plenty of support and encouragement.
Enjoy your flying. cheaha bill

Get yourself a Radian. Very little work, pretty cheap, and a lot of fun. Pop and I tried this for the first time last year and had a great time doing it.

I'll see if I can find a Radian or something similiar. Right now, I gotta get started building my "new fleet". Think I'll start tomorrow. 4 or 5 kits, 5 or 6 ARFs.... to include two 25% planes and a couple .60 size. Gonna be busy.
