AGM report

The 2016 KADMAC agm took place tonight (6th December) with no great surprises, committee reports sailed through without issue, followed buy 3 proposals.

1st proposal, club subscriptions where an increase of 10% was accepted unanimously. Subscriptions for 2017 to raise to £33 for Senior, £11 Junior and £11 Social Member.

2nd Proposal, was the adoption of disability access guidelines for members wishing to drive onto the moor to drop of their gear in an area close to the pits. The club returned this proposal back to the committee to look at again.

3rd Proposal, was to an amendment to the handbook Page 18 First Person View. FPV flying whether by goggles or by open screen may take place, on the condition that the flyer is supported by a competent person and that the aircraft being flown be kept within unadded line of site at all times. It is also recommend that the flying of an FPV aircraft does not take place alongside non FPV flying. This was accepted buy 4 vote for, 0 against.

On the no great surprises front, we once again saw young Oliver Firth take home a good number of the trophies, including the Stanley Parkington Trophy for best all-rounder.

Membership subscriptions were taken and new keys were issued to those who signed up on the night for another year, ready for the lock change over in February.

KADMAC Electric comp result

This year’s event took place in near perfect conditions, light breeze and an overcast sky for the full 2 hours or so of the event, the pleasant to fly in conditions also meant a level playing field for all 7 competitors.

Charlie Lee kicked of the event with a good solid flight followed by myself and young Jack Bradley who was the first to score a clean 2 minute time on his 3rd. I still find it incredible that you can judge a 2 minute flight with the plane landing dead on the 2minutes, but he did it and so did Harry and Oliver all on the same day.  

Results

1st Peter Harvey 52

2nd Harry Wadington 57

3rd Dave Smith 65

4th Oliver Firth 76

5th Charlie Lee 81

6th Jack Bradley 91

7th Roger Wynne 143

KADMAC Multi Rotor solo

Congratulations must go to Peter Convy and Peter Edwards who passed their KADMAC Multi Rotor solo test this Saturday, both flew very well and showed a good understanding of our flying site guidelines and the legal issues of flying UAV’s. The test we have put together for this class is an enhanced version of the BMFA BPC multi rotor test which is taken in conjunction with the standard kadmac questions. More tests to follow very soon.

KADMAC Scale Competition

 

1 Oliver Firth , Ultimate , 53 points

2 Frans Malherbe, Turbulent, 49 points

3 Charlie Lee, P 47 , 48 points

4 Harry Waddington, Cap 21, 47 points

5 Nick Hempel, Shoestring, 46 points

 

Oliver flew really well , a very aerobatic subject , flown in a very aerobatic manner, with good placement in display, Frans flew a much more sedate model, but really captured the slow flying, sedate, character of the Turbulent. Charlie flew a good display but the landing , literally, tipped the balance in Frans’s favour ! Harry and I made the numbers up !

Thanks to all the pilots for entering and to Mick Banks for scoring my flight, he was generous !
