2018 competition. (December 2017)

 Report - Richard Granger. . Photo's and Video - Mike Chapman.

A very select bunch of competitors ( THREE , yes, THREE to be precise .....)

plus Mike Chapman to keep us in order assembled at Harvey Hadden for the Hangar Rat comp.

It is a very good venue, with high ceilings and friendly helpful staff.

Excellent flights were made, Paul's unbeatable Rat is still in one piece, my ancient and battered Rat flew OK but is facing retirement

The team of Andrew Darby and his son James kept us on our toes.

I was particularly pleased to achieve a two minute flight with my monster Rat (which didn't count), but inspires me to build an even bigger one .....!

There wasn't even one hang up in the rafters.

Full chilly report 

 

Results at the end of the session, being a total of the best three flights out of ten, were :-

 

1st    Paul Briggs                 Stripey red Rat        433 secs  

2nd   Richard  Granger        Very old Rat             388 secs

3rd   Andrew Darby              Fine yellow Rat       338 secs

Paul with his winning Rat.

 

Richard wrestles his Rat !

 

Andy brought his Triplane for added entertainment.

 

Andy's son James flew his model too - it's a good flier.

 

Richard, about to release his BIG rat - it clocked more than two minutes !

 

Paul, James, Andy and Richard had a very good day's flying.
