Unofficial event at the
In order to trial the provisional
rules for Memorial Flight, a new free flight scale class,
this will be flown concurrently with power scale and rubber
scale events at the Nationals. This new event is to allow
flyers to fly models constructed by other modellers now no
longer with us or able to complete them. The class is for
flying only. The usual requirement for the model to be built
by whomever enters it is therefore not required in this
scale class. It is hoped that many interesting or even yet
to be completed models built by others may be brought out to
be flown once again.
Flight Provisional Rules
1. Models must be built by
someone other than the flyer entering them.
2. The ‘Builder of the model’
