Another Easter in the 'Naki is in the books. Two great days flying and one mostly washed out.

Full results of the Easter Taranaki CL Champs are available here: http://bit.ly/17nHftX courtesy of Andrew Robinson.

Dave Ackery wrote:We did lots of flying, a few highlights for me
Friday the weather was nice –in ½A there were some fast ABs , and some slower profiles with PAWs.
I got to fly F2F for the first time and it was pretty exciting, 3 models all reliable gave some excellent 3 up racing,

Saturday weather was still nice – F2B in the morning allowed some testing time on the hard circle which was useful.
Class B had 5 models which is the best field in a long time (although 2 were converted classic models), some good races there.
Mixed in there was some speed, class 1,2 ,3

Sunday it rained and rained – it cleared about 2 PM, some people had given up and left, we flew some slow GY, we did not have enough people to do 3 up so flew 2 up heats. We left for Ak about 5 PM just as the locals were getting the jets out.
I hope the results will come out soon.

cheers
Dave


Team Race pits on Easter Saturday.

Robert Bolton's Classic FAI craft did a few loops before plunging into the grass after a leadout break.
Image

Graeme Christie's Fora powered Classic FAI ship also succumbed to technical difficulties.
Image

Rod Brown's Fora powered Classic FAI machine was the only one left in action.

Rod Brown wrote:Classic A- Enya 15D , APC 6.5 x 5.5 . speed 25/10
Classic FAI- Fora Junior, Graupner 7x7. speed 22.5 /10

Fora model- Don`t know if it is a reconised design. The best I can work out is that it is based on a typical Dutch 2 wing from the good old days.
Enya model is based on a Tigress .


Another Rod Brown Classic racer.
Image

Rod's Fora Classic cracked out a 4:15 and a 4:17 solo time trial.
Image

Dave Ackery's Open B racer.
Image

Alec Fuller's Oliver Tiger mkIV powered Classic A model made the final.
Image

Brian Howser's Olly mkIII Tigress won the Classic A final.

Brian Howser wrote:My prop is a 7x6 APC cut down to 6.5 with the tips rounded, it actually looks quite a nice prop.
The liner was brand new several years ago but would not perform so I spoke to Tom about it and he asked me to send it back. It had the wrong contra piston fitted so he put that right and sent it back and included a new shape larger venturi. I thought no way would that give me enough laps and it didn’t for a while but it has slowly run in and at NP was giving you 38 laps and as the results show we had a very good heat time.
Fuel was 20% Castor, 33% Ether, 45% Kero, 2% DII.


The Robinson '68 Olly mkIII machine still cranking along after 45 years.

Don Robinson wrote:Prop is an APC 7 x 7 not modified just had the sharp edges taken off and the balance
checked. Engine is Oliver Tiger, Mark 3, about 1961 vintage, modified by Olivers, fitted with
Cox 0.049 venturi and collector ring with venturi bored out to 3.00 mm.

Stunt Series R6 - Taranaki Champs

Postby ash » Tue Apr 09, 2013 1:38 pm

Saturday morning saw the sixth round of the Stunt Series descend on NPMAC's beautiful grass circle in the form of five competitors, including the welcome return of Chris Allen to the F2B ranks.

Chris has represented New Zealand in F2B in the past and dragged out his old ST60 powered Stiletto 760 to see if could still do some stunts. Turns out he can!

The weather was pretty nice, very still and the early rain disappeared in good time. Lots of guessing at the overall wind direction and model-induced turbulence.

Owen and Don seemed to both be flying particularly well.

Thanks to NPMAC and Andrew Robinson for running the weekend and judging F2B.

Results:

Code: Select all
F2B Aerobatics      Rd 1  Rd 2  Rd 3   Total
1st Loren Nell      1052  1016  1072.5 2124.5
2nd Owen Rogers     948   1036  952    1988
3rd Don Robinson    946.5 893.5 892.5  1840
4th Adrian Hamilton 839   831.5 929    1768
5th Chris Allen     685   758   753    1511


Series table to come, but I can tell you that Kim Webby is the only person who can catch Loren Nell when the next round in Rotorua comes up.

The first of the two secret Series prizes arrived today, also. Overall points leader will get first pick and the winner of the draw (series entrants and judges) will get second pick.

F2B day.
