27th September 2017LincolnshireAnother UK Single Channel and Retro Event
 BMFA Buckminster, Sewstern, Grantham, Lincolnshire, NG33 5RW

Every year PANDAS hosts our "S/C & Retro RC Fly-in" event which grows ever more popular. We're often asked after each event if there's any chance of "more of the same" later in the year.

Well, its short notice, but we've decided to do just that, and for many reasons to site it at Buckminster, the new BMFA National Flying Site. As a break from tradition, we decided to do it mid -week rather than a weekend.  Why? well, we're mostly either retired, thought we were retired or just prefer flying to working and weekends are often booked solid many months in advance. A mid-week event means that you don’t have to miss your planned weekend activities.

Following the Pontefract template it’s an informal retro and vintage 'Fly-in' and whilst our own niche interests are S/C, Reeds, Galloping Ghost, & Pulse, of course everyone is welcome to fly their retro & vintage models with modern gear too. To broaden the scope we're expecting Control-line and Free-flight, we've invited the SAM lads and we're hoping the UKCAA classic aerobatic aficionados will join us, so there’s something for anyone with either a nostalgic or plain curious nature.

There will be a small entry fee of £6 and I understand that overnight camping is available but contact Buckminster for any additional cost.

   
Hoping to see as many old & new faces as we can muster, even if you're not a convert, come along & see what all the retro fuss is about.

Admission to the meetings will be £4 for fliers and £1 for spectators, whilst accompanied children will be admitted free. Junior fliers will be charged as adult spectators. Fliers will be required to show proof of insurance.

Models to be flown at these meetings are to be limited to a maximum weight of 95 grammes (3.5 ounces), in flight trim, including battery (not to exceed a 2-cell Li-Po pack). Helicopters are to be limited to a rotor diameter of 6” (152mm). Multicopters are to have a motor to motor diameter not exceeding 6” (152mm).

All models should be 25mW 5.8GHz or Wi-Fi FPV equipped. A frequency control system will be employed whereby each pilot will be allocated a video operating band, to guarantee frequency separation a maximum of 4 pilots will be permitted to transmit at any one time. Each model will need to be checked and a transmitter tag allocated before being cleared to fly.

Depending on the number of FPV models ready to fly there may be an opportunity to fly non-FPV equipped models.

Flying at these events will take place generally in accordance with our procedures developed at the regular indoor R/C events, details of which are available on our website.

Waltham Chase Aeromodellers look forward to welcoming all R/C indoor FPV fliers to these events.
