Andy, Martyn-- Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm certainly putting an F3-Res glider on my to-do list (bit of a kits backlog to get through first 8-) and I'll mention this thread at the East Sussex Soaring Association AGM to see who else can be tempted towards F3-RES. We all fly slope but many of us also fly off bungees for fun. Could be opportune for a bit more club-level competition at least! Cheers --Pete

Yes please do. The more we get, the more options we have when we start running prop comps

Quick update: My own RES-Eagle build is well under way - wing about done and should be ready to fly this month.
A fellow ESSA club member is ahead of me and we will be entering the 2020 BARCS postal as soon as we can get them finished and airborne (from a flat field, not the South Downs!). Rumours of a "proper" F3-RES comp this year on BARCS sound good - hope to see you at one!

Really interested in the comments about the Elan during the build and 100S competition. I like a number of others on here am disappointed how competitions are now spoilt bi the hi-tech approaches.
I have a Balsa Cabin Ravello that I built some years a go now that I still enjoy flying, and while some of the more modern designs and materials used make for good performing gliders they are not as much fun. Perhaps that discourages others from having a go?
Or maybe I am getting old lol.

I've flown my Elan some more this season, always from a slope on thermal days with some very long and relaxing flights the result. Here on the South Downs a few weeks ago.
