More Dino on J vs P
From: Michael Achterberg
Austin was a very excellent flyer. If the powers to be want juniors to participate just like they did at the intro to P, have it open to both J and P at next Champs. No one will fly P.
Now, as to performance issue with J. Lets fix that. A 7 sec. motor run with no weight limit meant u could literally fly with good pattern and bunt and glide 10 sec and DT and make a max. 2min.. Wow..
I propose a 5 sec motor run with a minimum weight of 225 gr. Roughly 8 oz.. Austin models weighed 6oz.. This will still be fast and the juniors will love it.... Simple to fly.
Now, someone going to scream cost. Not a problem. There are at least 200 of my models laying on a shelve somewhere around the world. And 100's more from the Ukraine available with a simple ad on Sen. An they will be cheap..
So let the kids have some fun again..
Ps. And No I don't have any for sale.. Actually never flew the event.. So Im not trying to sell models. This is not why Im proposing this...F1p is a stupid event. Hard to fly and No fun...
F1B model for sale

Andriukov 180 cm F1B model for sale. Complete with Simplicity 4 (with altimeter) timer and Companion RDT unit. Model weighs 201 gm including hook and bobbin and is like new with less than 25 trim flights on it.
I'm selling this because it's the only model I have with the Simplicity timer. The rest of my models use M&K timers and I'm so used to those I never fly this model.
