Southern BMFA Scale Flying 2017

Tiger Moth 25 % Flown by Richard Bristow

The Wimborne MAC on behalf of the Southern Area BMFA held a ‘flying only’ Scale Competition on Sunday 24th September 2017. With attendance at scale competitions across the country declining, it was felt that a low key competition in the Southern Area would be a good way to give the average club flyer an opportunity to experience some competitive flying, which would be fun and offer them an opportunity to focus their flying in a scale manner. Who knows, it may even encourage them to have a go at other competitions, or the Nationals.

Winner 2017 Andrew Fellowes

Scores after the 5th & final round.  We missed the heavy rain of the previous week and were fortunate that Sunday turned out dry, but only just. The fifth and final round of the 2017 season was flown at Cashmoor.  We again used the CAM height limiter, set to 30 seconds motor run time and this time set at 150m altitude. There was a good entry of 10 pilots with the event consisting of five rounds run to the now familiar round robin format. The slots in each round are so designed that each pilot will fly once against every other pilot in the competition.

Southern Area BMFA Scale Flying Competition

Southern Area BMFA Flying Only Scale Competition  Cashmoor, Dorset 24th September 2017

 The Wimborne Model Aero Club are kindly hosting on behalf of the Southern Area BMFA a 'Flying Only' Scale Competition on 24th September 2017 on their site at Cashmoor, Dorset.

The competition will be relatively low key to give the average club scale flyer an opportunity to experience flying a scale model in a realistic way and to compete for trophies that it is hoped will be awarded on an annual basis.
