Next Winter League 2nd Dec 2017

F3F Winter League R1 4th Nov 2017

First Round of the the Northern Winter league got off to a slow start due a band of rain crossing the area during the morning. It finally cleared to give an almost clear blue sky for the rest of the day, but left with a wind that couldn't make its mind up whether it was W, NW or WNW. Levisham site with a WNW location is not ideal, but we did get a rather ponderous 5 rounds in, making for another interesting Levisham experience. However the conditions appeared to favour Steve Haley who had his first F3F WL league win, well done mate. Peter Gunning Second with Greg Dakin Third. FTD also went to Steve with a 46.90.

The Full results were :-
1 Steve Haley 3953.68 1000 Pike Perfect
2 Peter Gunning 3736.41 945.04

BMFA F3F League 5 1st Oct 2017

The last of the BMFA Summer League event at Horcum has been cancelled due to poor weather forecast. Usual naff forecast by the MetOffice! - Rain no where near as intense or as prolonged as predicted.

Welsh F3F Open Eurotour and World Cup 15th - 17th Sept 2017

Another great weekend down on the Welsh Slopes. Weather forecast was not too promising, Friday had a few showers, Saturday was a lovely day, but just no wind, and Sunday was similar to Friday. Overall the 48 pilots flew eight rounds with the following results :-

1st Inaki Elizondo
2nd Fernando
3rd Rich Bago

FTD was 35.39 by Inaki.

Great result for Rich, this is the second time this year he has been the highest placed UK pilot in a UK Eurotour - well done mate!

BMFA Nationals 26th - 28th August 2017

Terrific weekend weatherwise, probably the best for some years!. Didn't appear to be as many spectators there this time, certainly the 'bring and buy' which I sold some items at, did seem quiet by comparison. The trade stands were also down in number. But the flying was up to standard, with the 'show line' well attended. The Silent Flight Nationals were held at the new Buckminster site. This is a great venue, but despite being 43 acres is small by comparison to Barkston; two glider comps per day is about as much as it can take.

BMFA F3F L4 13th Aug 2017

Event cancelled due to poor wind forecast. History will show whether that was a good call, but XC forecast on the Friday evening prior to the event showed little wind, and from a constantly changing direction!

North of England F3F Open 30 June - 3 July 2017

Fantastic weekend, one of the best flying sessions we have had for some time. Forecast was looking like Friday would be our best day, and Saturday and Sunday would be bright but with no wind.

Friday started badly with heavy mist on the NE slope allowing only 2 rounds to be completed before the wettest of wet drizzle descended upon us.

Saturday started bright with the predicted light W winds which meant we were now on lovely Levisham, and things just got better and better from there. The wind built during the day, the sun shone and the flying became ballistic. 8 hours and 8 rounds later the flying stopped, food,drink and bed beckoned.

Sunday, much the same, but the wind had shifted slightly to WNW, which for Levisham was not a good direction. Any north in the wind makes the hill very variable, or should I say more variable, and so it was. Launching into bad air was like making progress in treacle, but good air meant hanging on as things were about to get ballistic. Another 6 rounds completed before the early finish to allow everyone to make a start for home, made for a grand total of 16 rounds over the weekend.

Final positions gave a win for Dieter Perlick for his very consistent flying through all the variability, followed closely in second by Rich Bago with some terrific flying, and Greg Dakin in third with some equally impressive flights. Rich took FTD with a 35.37 in R10

Model Engineering Exhibition Doncaster 12th-14th May 2017

This annual gathering has moved from Harrogate to its new location in Docaster. Not so many aircraft this year but the usual engineering stuff, but can't help thinking the big traders are getting fewer and fewer. Did any of you make it?

Champion of Champion Race 1st / 2nd April 2017

The annual challenge between the various Winter Leagues series was held last weekend at Horcum. A great two days were had by the 15 pilots. The Saturday being the more productive day with 9 rounds completed on the South Bowl before the wind did a complete about turn and the menacing looking clouds which had formed behind us suddenly let rip. A bit of a soggy walk off the hill to say the least!

Sunday was not expected to be any good due to the light variable winds forecast, but in fact we managed another two rounds on the NE ridge before the wind deserted us completely.

The final results were a great win for Greg Dakin, crowned Champion of Champion, with Simon Thornton in second, and Rich Bago just a few points behind in third. FTD went to Greg with a stonking 39.80 on the first day.

Final positions were :-

1 Greg Dakin 9511.76 1000

Northern Winter League 18th March 2017

Well I can quite understand why we had such a low turnout.

The weather forecast never stood still. Certainly when we arrived at Levisham, the wind was all over the place, and it looked like we were to be denied a comp. Still ever hopeful and with an improving forecast, the 6 pilots stuck it out until lunchtime, when the wind direction became more consistent although the strength began to drop.

However, 10 rounds later we were all happy bunnies to have produced a result, even though at times the flying was pretty variable.

Results were, Greg in first, Rich in second and Mark T in third. Mark also managed the FTD of 41.22

The Full results were :-
1 Greg Dakin 8624.85 1000 Jedi

Champion of Champions in a couple of weeks time at Horcum

Northern Winter League 4th March 2017

The Northern Winter League on Saturday 4th March was called OFF. The rain showing on earlier forecasts moved off into the North Sea, leaving only clouds and light winds behind. The prospect of standing around on the slope waiting for the wind to pick up didn't appeal, but in the event even the clouds dispersed leaving a gradually increasing wind of 10-12mph by mid afternoon.

Northern F3F Winter League 18th Feb 2017

Phew that was close in the sense that it nearly didn't happen!

Thick fog, or to coin a phrase 'clag' persisted on the South Bowl all morning. Current Met Office forecast was for it to stay all day, so things were not looking too good.

A deadline of 1pm (ish) was agreed upon. If the fog didn't lift or at least show signs of lifting by then, the comp would be called off.

The great news was the fog did lift and we were on the first round by 1 o'oclock. 11 pilots managed 8 rounds in the few hours of reasonable wind and daylight left. Whilst the conditions remained misty, a steady 8 - 10m/s SSW wind did allow for another close competition. Greg once again showing his dominance, Mark R in second and Steve in third. FTD went to Paul Garnett in 39.74 ( the only sub 40 of the day ). Nice to see Paul after what must have been a 2year absence!

The final results were :-

1 Greg Dakin 6766.91 1000 Jedi SpaceLift
2 Mark Redsell 6629.60 980 FS4 / 5
3 Steve Haley 6566.06 970 Pike Precision

Northern F3F Winter League 4th Feb 2017

Terrific day on the slope! The 4th Round of the Winter League was greated with a good SSW brease and largely sunny day if not a tad chilly!. However the 8 pilots enjoyed the day, managing 12 rounds before the wind finally died.

Some great flying to be had, with Greg Dakin coming out on top, Rich Bago second and Peter Gunning third. FTD also went to Greg with a 35.90 in R6

Northern F3F Winter League 7th Jan 2017

Third round of the Northern Winter league is scheduled for this coming weekend. Weather forecast all week had not been looking great. Unfortunately things didn't change, and the forecast for Saturday was for wind speeds less than 7mph. As this is less than the 'legal' speed rquired for F3F the comp was called OFF.

Northern F3F Winter League 3rd Dec 2016

Second round of the Winter League has been called OFF. Forecast is for winds speeds of only 2-4mp caused by a High pressure system slap over Horcum.

Northern F3F Winter League 5th Nov 2016

Well that wasn't too bad. The predicted showers did materialise, and despite being very heavy, were generally short lived. Never-the-less every round had at least one stoppage for rain, and the air between could be a bit tricky as well.

However the 9 pilots did managed 5 rounds on the NE slope before the wind swung too far west to continue, and with the prospect of more heavy rain to follow, a hasty retreat to the carpark was made before the next down pour.

Some great flying was had especially in the earlier rounds, with Greg coming out on top, followed by Mark R, with Steve in third. FTD went to Greg with a 37.51 in R1

Final positions were :-

1 Greg Dakin 3954.72   1000

Welsh F3F Open 9th / 10th /11th Sept 2016

Usual three day jamboree down in a partly sunny Wales was its usual gathering of flyers with great banter and serious competition. Three different Welsh slopes on the three days made for one of the closest comps I have known for sometime!

49 Pilots managed an amazing 13 rounds over the three days. To avoid losing a round due to weather, R2 was Group Scored with the flying split into 3 Groups.

The final top three were :-

1 Alvaro Silgado 1000.0  
2 Inaki Elizondo 994.8  
3 Greg Dakin 989.24  


Fastest time of 30.31 for the weekend going to Greg Dakin in round 3

BMFA F3F Nationals 20 / 21 Aug 2016

Yet again we find ourselves faced with a dire weather forecast for the weekend. After all the great weather we have enjoyed so far, as soon as we are due to run a competition, the weather gods throw the very worst at us, and bring in a stonking low pressure to liven things up.

Well, we should not have worried, the forecast for lots of rain didn't materialise, and the 15 pilots who braved the forecast were presented with an absolutely brilliant weekend.

Thirteen rounds completed on Saturday ( OK one round was lost due to rain, but that was all ) and a further 10 rounds on Sunday making an unbelievable 23 Rounds for the weekend. How good could it get. Saturday saw wind gust on the South Bowl approaching 25m/s, providing some very fast flying, whilst Sunday on Levisham provided the variability that only Levisham can provide.

After all that, the results were, Mark Redsell was the winner, Peter Gunning in second and Rich Bago in third. Fastest time of the w/e went to Mark R with a 32.73. Well done guys, terrific two days.

Watch found at Levisham Aug 20 2016

Updated 25 Aug.
Watch owner has been re-united with his timepiece!!
Many thanks to Michael Terry for his efforts.

Received this message from one of our members :-

"We were flying at Levisham on Saturday and had parked at the end of Braygate Lane.  As I was unpacking the car I found a man’s watch in the grass where we park.  It looks like it has been there for a while but has cleaned up and is still working. I was wondering if anyone had reported losing a watch up there or if you could mention that one has been found.  It would be nice to returned it to it’s rightful owner".

If anyone has lost a watch or has any information please give me a call

BMFA F3F Reserve and League Event, Horcum, 25th / 26th June 2016

Well that was a frustrating weekend weather wise. Saturday forecast was for very light variable direction winds, the comp was cancelled on that basis and the forecast proved to be spot on: Saturday was not flyable. Sunday forecast was not a great deal better but at least had more potential, until that is the Met Office issued a warning for heavy rain all day Sunday, at which point we cancelled the Sunday comp as well. Now if ever a forecast was wrong it was this one. No rain, in fact a bright sunny day, and by tea time a strong, 30mph+, westerly had developed.Frustrating or what! Sorry Guys, lets hope for better next time.

BMFA Heavy Lift Challenge, Elvington, 11th / 12th June 2016

I finally managed to attend and help at the event this year. This is an initiative run by the BMFA for some years now, and is open to Colleges and Universities, to design, build and fly, a model aircraft to achieve one or more of 3 challenges. These challenges are 1, to transport as many tennis balls as possible, along a predetermined flight path, in 10 mins. 2, to fly a very large block of balsa around a course, completing as many laps as possible, in 8 mins, and 3, carry up to 4Kg of water ballast, again along a prescribed flight path. Some terrific model creations, some more successful than others, but great fun and determination from all the Teams. Oh and I should say, all this with an electric powered aircraft with a specified motor, 40A speed controller and 2200mAhr 3cell LiPo. Now there's a challenge!!

Model Engineering Show Doncaster 20th to 22nd May 2016

As you can see from the title, the show has moved from its original location of Harrogate show ground to its new and permanent (?) residence at Doncaster Racecourse. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend this year, but a report from an engineering colleague advised me that it was pretty much business as usual. I know the Harrogate Model Aircraft Club didn't exhibit this year, but there was still a good selection of models aircraft on show I'm told.

F3F Champion of Champions 2nd / 3rd April

As previous years, the Winter League Fly-off was held in not so sunny Wales the first weekend in April. Forecast as usual deteriorated the minute we set off on the the long journey South! The rain which was supposed to clear first thing Saturday morning, now persisted in more sense than one, into the afternoon. However when it did clear, it was a glorious Spring Day, with a steady SSE wind. The 27 pilots managed a busy 5 rounds before the wind swung too far off the slope to allow flying to continue. This gave plenty of time to head back down to Bridgend for the traditional Curry in the center of town.

Day two, again not so bright, mist on the hill and rain to come. A decision to move to another slope known as the Crest, brought groans from the assembled pilots, as this meant a fair walk ( 1mile app ) to the flying site, which didn't please all.
Never-the-less the course was set up and flying got under way at around 11am. Two more rounds with a break between for rain were completed, before the darkening clouds suggested we got off the hill whilst it we were still reasonably dry.

The eventual winner was Simon Thornton, retaining his title he won last year, Peter Gunning second, and Martin Newnham third. FTD also went to Simon with a 34.75. Another socially excellent weekend with a spot of flying thrown in for good measure can't be bad.

F3F Winter League 19th March 2016

The final event of the 2015 / 16 calendar had similar conditions to the previous comp, ie Northerly winds, 5 to 9m/s ( 10 to 20mph ) but with the added distraction of drizzle at the start. Fortunately that cleared fairly soon to give a steady but overcast day. As usual with only 7 pilots, a hectic day ensued, with frequent breaks to gives pilots time to recover from flying and buzzer duties. Never-the-less, 15 rounds were achieved.

Winner was Mark Redsell, hotly pursued by Mark Treble, with Rich Bago in third. FTD went to Mark R with a time of 37.85 in R9

Mention must also be made for Tony Hollings, competing in his first F3F comp with a sub 2m model. Giving him a win in his class ( being the only 2m competitor! ) and a great day out. Well done Tony.

Well we have a second result. Forecast was spot on, NE winds, well NNE actually, 5 to 15 m/s (11 to 33 mph approx ) lots of blue sky, with a sprinkling of showers. 15 rounds with 9 pilots makes for a hard day. By the time we finished at 4:30, we were well and truly cream crackered, despite a break for lunch and another for afternoon tea ( without the china tea service of course! ) .

Very close at the top, with Mark R taking top honours, Rich B a very close second and Peter G not far away in third. FTD went to Mark with a cracking 30.59.

F3F Winter League 20th Feb 2016

At last a result!! Forecast looked half decent, with WSW winds anywhere between 13-33mph but with a risk of showers. In the event the wind forecast was pretty much spot on, although it did swing SW and decline as the day went on, and as for the showers, one sprinkling around midday which hardly affected us as we had broken for lunch! Only disappointment was we could only muster 8 pilots, and one of them dropped out before the start. However we managed 15 hectic rounds in Levisham's usual variable conditions.

Results were Mark Redsell first, Rich Bago second and Steve Haley third. FTD went to Rich with a cracking 33.73 in R11.

F3F Winter League 6th Feb 2016

I hardly dare mention we have a F3F Winter League event this coming weekend in case the weather gods hear me! But Hey Ho, what the heck. Fourth round of the Northern Winter League is this Saturday the 6th Feb. There done it, throw your worst at us!!
Well it did! Rained ALL day and I mean rained. The comp was cancelled, yet again.

F3F Winter League 9 Jan 2016

Fingers crossed that out of this present rain and gloom we may actually get a good day next Saturday. Hmmm, who's betting? Well bet no more, the comp was cancelled after the forecasters showed a band of rain across the region between the morning and early afternoon. As it worked out the afternoon turned out bright with clear skies, contary to all forecasts.

F3F Winter League 5 Dec 2015

Oh dear, not looking good! High winds with gusts of over 50mph forecast and likely to be at Levisham ( SW winds ) probably makes the day un-flyable. We have tried Levisham before with high winds ( see report for Jan 2015 ) so unless something dramatic changes with the weather we aint going flyin' this weekend!

F3F Winter League 7 Nov 2015

Great start to the new season NOT! A band of rain is forecast to hit Horcum between 9am and some time after Midday on Saturday. What bad timing. Rain late, rain early, but not rain over the morning period. With shortening days, the best part of the day are the mornings. Sadly the Comp has been called OFF.
