Not much in term of results. Sounds like some issues similar to the F1ABC Champs
The note below came out of FAI Central.
Great achievement from Ivan Treger who also did the FiABC and F1D. The French junior winner was dwarfed by his “E” machine and coach Alain Roux

Editorial Champs Observation.
It would seem that the top priority item for the FFTSC of the CIAM is to review this year’s outdoor FF World Champs and tighten up on how the Category One events are run before next year. No question that the 2018 Euro Champs, scheduled for Szentes has to run much more smoothly.
It was pointed out by Allard Van Wallene (on the FFTSC ?) on FB that the Jury has the power and obligation to stop a category one contest if it is not being run properly and require the organizer to refund all entry fee. Clearly we don’t want this to happen because we really want to fly the event having spent lot of time preparing and money traveling. Also the FF community would look stupid in the CIAM and in country aero modelling communities if this happened. At Szentes people were unhappy that their first round MAX and been erased but that’s nothing to how they would have reacted to abandoning the whole event.
What no C Stuff ..
WHAT no f1c stuff /////// Things back to normal ??
Editor’s comment .. I think the only C comments made by an actual C Sportsmen were from Dr Carroll, generally known as Eddie and Gil Morris , sometimes known as the professor. And what’s normal any way?
Is Dino for real ? **
Quote from Dino in SEN 2337 :- "Every One seems concerned that someone
might try to cheat and grab a couple tenths of seconds. Personally, I
don't believe it."
What a ridiculous statement. 2/10s on an engine run is worth about 25s
in extra glide time. Look at how that would affect the final F1C FO
places in Hungary and it's clear why people do it and will continue to
** Well, I’m tempted to …
Re: SEN 2335 – meeting of the minds?
Interesting that I just read the post in SEN 2335 of Antony Koerbin, which is pretty much word for word what I wrote myself this evening., only to fight my way down the list of crispy old emails to #2335. I am hoping this means that great minds think alike...and not the reverse! Thermals,
F1C Engine Run Time Approach
My engine timing aim is for a human timer pushing a button at the moment of launch, as is done now. This would start two clocks -- engine run clock and total flight time clock. The engine run clock would stop upon receiving a radio signal from the airplane that the propeller has stopped. This would be done by a hall effect sensor or similar device and transmitted to the clock. The total flight time clock would be stopped by push button by the human timer, as is done now. Both times would be read and recorded on the score card by the human timer.
F1C dual time recording
Although I much prefer electronic timing as outlined, I think a substantial improvement in quality would be for timers to be required to record both engine run and total time. I think timers would feel a greater responsibility for accuracy if there actions were subject to public record.
The 20 second Mulligan
Since the subject of the 20 sec. attempt has cropped up again in SEN (via CHE and Per Grunnet no less) I must echo the views of these guys. This rule- presumably a relic from the days of ROG- was already daft before the advent of RDT and altimeter auto-abort- now it's rather distasteful. Yes, it's demoralising after traveling a long way to a contest to score a handful of seconds when your prop doesn't start or your LDA glider overbunts, but it's also a bit tiresome to fly well all day with a consistent aeroplane only to be stuffed in the flyoff by a guy who's made mistakes and pushed the button for another go. This quite apart from the need to reduce numbers reaching the flyoff, particularly at championships.
Cheers, Stuart Darmon
Euro J is there too
I see that I you mentioned the various leagues in place for f1h, f1g and f1s / e36, interesting that there was no mention of the f1j league ? Not as popular a class I guess but not worth giving up on ?
