R/C Scale flying

 

“Flying only” Scale competition, no marks awarded for appearance or scale fidelity, however models must be recognisable as a rendition of a full size flying aircraft , most of us must possess at least one model that qualifies for this, if you’ve never attempted a club competition, now’s your chance !

The aim of the contest and the thinking behind the marking is that the model should be flown through the manoeuvres to give the most realistic impression of the full sizes aircrafts behaviour and performance when well flown.

All aircraft to fly the compulsory manoeuvres and 2 of the option manoeuvres, options to be selected prior to commencing the flight. If the model has some particular function available (such as bomb drop etc.)  the pilot may elect to demonstrate that instead of one of the listed options.

All appropriate manoeuvres to be centred on the middle of the strip

All manoeuvres have the same value, no “K” factors applied.

 

  1. Rise off ground take off
  2. Left hand or right hand circuit at a steady altitude.

3.Figure of eight ( two circles of equal size joined together side by side, with no X in the middle)

  1. A descending 360 degree circle (starts at height in the middle of the strip, power is reduced and plane banked to descend in a circle to exit at circuit height on the same heading as the entry)
  2. option manoeuvre
  3. option manoeuvre
  4. Approach & Landing ( marked from when plane turns onto final leg until it comes to a halt).
