Discuss Competition

Steve Davies (July 2017)

 

Saturday 8th July found ADS members competing for the first DLG Competition at Hazlehead Park.

 

It was a bright sunny day with possibly a little more wind than competitors would have liked but a lot of fun was had by all. Mike Burns did some amazing spinning that would have gone down well in the Olympics! A lot of fun was had by all and all but one of the models was home made.

 

The competition was held over five rounds with no landing bonus points, and was measured purely on time of launch to time of landing. The weather didn't aid long flight times very much and some hovering definitely took place into wind.

Much joking and jibing all in good sport took place along with threats of adding led weight to various models in an effort to introduce a handicap.

 

The pilots and scores on the day were as follows;

 

1st - Steve Davies - Whipit - 1m 46s
2nd - Chris Harper - Candy 36 - 1m 34s
3rd - Mike Burns - Pink Shocker - 1m 29s
4th - Jim Wilson - Foxy - 1m 6s

 

Well done to all and a definite competition to be held again sometime.
