Leeper to Martin
Squatter weighs in:
OK, gotta toot my own horn just ONCE! I was flying the first operational electronic bunter (with ballistic cruise) in 1993 with a sequential 555 RC timer that Kenny Bauer built to 's and my specs. Stayed in the box for the '93 WC, but did set the AMA A2 record in 1994, which stood till Mike McKeever's masterful 2009 performance.
Saved by Woodhouse
Save was 1971. Yes the Soviets had inertia circle hooks.
If you're seriously thinking about limiting the performace and making them affordable and easily DIY projects, limiting the wingspans would be a good move. I suggested this back in the '80's. I recall that my suggested spans were 2 meters for F1A, 1.5 meters for F1B and something like 1.7 meters for F1C. It would make CF a luxury, instead of a necessity. It would give some sort of a chance to modelers from anywhere, to compete in WC's. Wouldn't that be cool? O'Bat
Pan American Open - Final Notes and Scheduling Discussion:
On behalf of the organizers, we wanted to thank everyone for their participation at this year's Pan American Open, and for sharing their wonderful photos with us afterwards.
Given the difficult weather experienced this year, and as a topic for discussion, does anyone know if there is any reason why the three contest (Isaacson, MaxMen, and by extension the Pan American) are held when they are in the middle of February, and not some later time - perhaps early March - when the weather (on average) is likely to be substantially improved?
Editorial Comment - Chris, later weekends are already committed in both the International calendar, with the Ice events and the SCAT Annual etc at Lost Hills. The MaxMen is held on the US President's day public holiday and that is important for the participation of young people at school or university and some people who actually have to work. With some 20-20 hindsight on the Fab Feb weekend you could have made better use of the time for Pan Am by resuming flying later in the day. the Ike/Zeri had absolutely perfect weather and most other days eventhough there was often a bad patch early afternoon it did get better later in the day. There is not guarantee that moving it later will bet better, for example while last weekend at Lost Hills was just like the Ike, this weekend in California has rain and wind.
