Just a reminder that there is pylon racing on Saturday June 4th - two events:
- Unmodified Scanner/Tiger 46, with 11x6 APC propellor.
- Open pylon for IC and electric - anything goes.
The races will run during the morning/lunchtime, with the field being open, all day, for sport flying, other than when the racing is taking place.
Both race classes are open to bronze/silver/gold wings pilots. Dave Pound is organising the event, so please let him know if you want any further information.
As an aside, if anyone is looking for a little building challenge, there's a few of us making electric racers. The rules are simple - designed and built by you, not from a plan, kit, ARF, maximum span of the main wing is 36" (standard balsa sheet length), battery to be a 2200 3 cell lipo. All else is up to the builder - shape, materials, motor, prop. The idea is to have a few of these ready by end of June for a bit of casual racing, purely for fun. If you'd like to have a go, get building! There's about 90 minutes and $10, so far, invested in my effort:
