For the first round in our brand new RCSoaring Man on Man race series, we will be having an OPEN CLASS 60" or less Man on Man event.


This means you can fly ANY 60" foam glider you like. NO WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS.


 


The only main rule will be that you will need to place the race numbers on your gliders wing. I will post full details of these numbers soon. However, you can now select a unique number from 01 - 99 right now. This will secure your racing number for the duration of the 2013-2014 racing season.


 


When you register here for the racing, please also select a number. I will organise these early November from the local signwriters. They will all be in BLACK vinyl, and will measure 150mm x 150mm - in a specific font. You right wing will need racing numbers both on the top and bottom or your outboard section of your wing. I will post pics and locations soon.


 


Numbers make keeping track of gliders as they race. no number = no race.


 


Ok, I bags 99. Racing numbers will cost approx $15 + postage.

So, I really want to win this comp I'm organising... :-|  :-P , so I will need a new weapon. Something I can build quick as chips and get practicing. I'm thinking a Raven. I loved my now retired M-60 a LOT for this type of racing, but its time for something new.


 


So, can I beat you all with a Raven? Your thoughts would be appreciated...hmmm can't remember where to get one from....what's their website?

Are these numbers going to be easily removable?

 Yes, but care will be needed. Its sign writing vinyl....Remember - this Man on Man race is for foamies, and the F3F is for crunchies :)

Sign me up for #42. I don't have any particularly fast models but I'm sure it will be a fun learning experience regardless. At least when I have a Raven next time I will have an idea what I am doing :-)
