2021 New Years Day World Cup Woody Contest


Lets get started signing up for this New World Cup!

2021 New Years Day World Cup 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!

Have fun!
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 composite 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.

The F3RES rules allow for simple extruded composite shapes for spars, LE, and TE on the wing.

I'll be with my daughter's family in Montana, but I have a 2M E-ship stashed there, so might get to fly.
