Great session with the TM last night. Thanks Guys.
Despite not having flown any models for a loooong time (more than a year), and having given up on that last occasion as I had  smashed irreparably a lot of £models in 4 or 5 sessions, my fears of totalling my last Calypso Contest were unfounded!
When I work out how to get photos from my phone onto here I will do so.
Friends on FaceBook will have already seen some, anyone that wants to see some of the shots from last nights Midsummer Madness try this link...

Good turn out on Wednesday evening. Plenty of flying going on and the most gliders in the air ive seen for a while. Look forward to the next one, Althought the M20 was shut delaying my journey home.

Our annual Summer Solstice evening event, held on the 20th owing to a forecast lack of SW wind on the 21st, was very well attended this year with not just our regulars but in addition fliers from Deal and Essex, good to see you guys. :af
We had an excellent session during the evening and we managed to get nearly all the aircraft in the air as the sun set, apart from those of Rob the "countdown manager" and the photographers Paul and Bob. 
See Goodwind Soaring to view Paul's excellent report and photographs.
Roll on the Winter Solstice session, see you there?  ;D  ;D  ;D


Event Report
At the weekend I visited Interglide F5J Eurotour 2018 event run by the BARCS team at the Hamilton Farm airstrip near Ashford, to help out with timekeeping duties. The event had competitors from the UK, France, the Netherlands and Germany to fly twelve rounds of F5J thermal soaring over two days. Two of the Dutch competitors I used to fly with in the Netherlands many years ago were present and it was good to see them again after some 25 years.

To be a timekeeper I needed to become fully acquainted with the F5J rules and Ian Nicholls, who was one of the fifty six competitors, helped me out in this respect. As it turned out I became Ian's timekeeper as his allocated timekeeping partner was unable to attend the event. I had last been a timekeeper over 20 years ago, but after a few rounds I managed to get back on track and be Ian's flightline helper and spotter as well.

The F5J competition is quite an interesting  combination of duration thermal soaring and using your £1,000+ glider as a lawn dart, without the hassle of winches and towlines. Note to self: make sure I attend the next thermal event at the Invicta MF club field to see how our local guys do it. Those of us with gliders with a fan on the front could also take part, Simon, Joe, Eric P, are you up for it?

At the final tally of scores, our own local Kent boy, Simon Thornton was on the third step of the podium to receive his spoils, although it had transpired that there was a scoring error and so he may have his goodies taken away once fresh batteries have been put in the calculator!

The BARCS team did a first class job of organising the event even down to providing a large screen TV in the marquee for anyone interested in a football match which was being played in some sort of international competition  :'',  but no one was watching it each time I peeked inside!

Lovely blue skys, thermally lift, not mega but adequate. Five of us there..


Simon with the Salto

I'll let Simon tell you about one of his landings  ;D
Lots of traffic on way home, perhaps we should have stayed in the pub longer..

Lovely day - albeit perhaps a little too warm...

3 good landings but the last one went that bit too far back at Bopeep and ended up landing sight unseen the other side of the fence.  Luckily the reliable Salto landing itself and no harm done

Yes, an excellent day on the South Downs with Si and Pete plus two guys from the flatlands of Essex but no Sussex Bods were anywhere to be seen. My last landing was absolutely perfect but unfortunately no one else saw it, not even the passing pair of walkers who had been admiring our flying for some time. :'(
Anyway Simon decided that after all that activity we needed a little taste of some Sussex ale and after fighting the traffic in Lewes, we eventually found a pub that was open and thoroughly enjoyed a sample of the local brew which went down well after a day on the slopes. :af

Senior moment update: Burt Munro was played by Hannibal Lecter who was played by Anthony Hopkins  ;D

First time on Bopeep for this Essex boy. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Managed to avoid the traffic by having my dinner in the camper then flying afterwards till 630pm.
Bit more turbulent landing on the east side of the car park!ila_rendered

Quite surprising weather we're having - hot as heck yet the winds are not from the south. Normally I think it takes southerlies to really bring the heat in.

An excellent session at Thurnham this evening.

A lovely warm south westerly breeze was enough to keep aloft a couple of Yagi type wings, a Phase 6, two Herons and a cracking small homebrew design by Eskie which sported a very thin efficient wing which refused to let him get the model back onto terra firma as the daylight rapidly disappeared. Eventually after half a dozen go-arounds, he got the model down safely with a perfectly executed very fast landing.

There was lots of slope related chat going on and it was good to see a number of keen guys on the slope who are less than half my age!   :'( :af

It looks like the south westerly flow will be with us for two or three more days, so see you at the slope one evening this week?

I'll be there tomorrow at about 5:30 and I may even sneak out for another quick fly this evening. I'm taking the opportunity to get some flying in while I can as Thursday onwards looks to be pants for sloping. I think I'll pop down to Farnborough on Friday to get a taste of the full-size stuff.

The forecast for this evening is 12 - 15 mph, but tomorrow evening's forecast is 4 - 6 mph, so a floater or something with a fan on the front will most probably be the order of the day.

I'll also be maidening my latest model which I have built to fly at the BMFA Nationals at the end of August. I took the opportunity to build it while my wife was away in Switzerland over last weekend. ;) Let's say it's appropriate for the event it will be flown in!  ;D  ;D ;D

A perfect session this morning at Thurnham. A warm 10 mph south westerly gave me the 'flying fix' I needed.  :)
I could only stay until noon as I had to meet up with my wife for a paddle in the sea and some lunch. ::)
It was a shame no one else was there to enjoy the excellent conditions with me, just one dog walker and one mountain biker in the distance were the only people in evidence, maybe other fliers attended in the afternoon.

I'll be there Paul!
I'm just about to have a snack to keep me going, so I should be on the slope between six and half past.
I'll bring the repaired, re-energised Skippy for another attempt at sustained flight!  ;D  ;D   :xx

Edit:
Conditions look to be perfect for the maiden flight of a Ventus!
Now who do we know who has got one just waiting for the right conditions?   :af

Edit 2:
A perfect session this evening in great conditions. Paul and I were still flying as the sun set in slightly challenging conditions as the wind died, but a cracking time was had by both of us!
I also managed to successfully maiden 'Skippy' and it performed well for Paul's video camera.when he demanded some very close-in flying action.
Footage may appear at sometime in the future on our favourite slope website, 'Goodwind Soaring'!   :af

GOOD NEWSl

The proposed 400 feet height limit applying to model aircraft under 7kg weight due to be implemented on 30th July within an updated Air Navigation Order, has been recinded for members of "specified  UK Model Aircraft Associations" and an exemption notice issued. See BMFA.org for full details.

The restriction still applies to model aircraft over 7kg weight and to multirotors. It's interesting to see that the CAA is starting to differentiate between between model aircraft and what are commonly referred to as drones.

RESULT!

Indeed great news Eric but I guess our 7kg models are still subject to the reinterpretion of the 400ft limit from surface rather than launch point?..

Yes, there is that issue!
I have been doing some calculations regarding our slope and I'm going do some height tests to see how that limitation will look to us when standing at the top of the hill.

Here is a trace from the Calypso Contest flight which went through sunset on 20th June at Thurnham.

The model looked at its highest when over the launch point (ie as I remember it, it would not have been 400ft above the surface at any stage of the flight whether measured vertically, or perpendicular to the ground's surface).

As a matter of interest, does anyone know what the difference in height between the Pilgrim's Way and the launch point is?

Jeff, The Pilgrims Way below our slope is approximately 90 metres according to OS contour lines and our launch point is 161 metres according to one of Simon's postings.
I'm not old, I've just been young for a very long time!
