Nova Scotia model tops Danish Championships again

Unread post by JohnOSullivan » Sun Jun 16, 2019 5:56 pm

I know that most of you have no idea of what FREE FLIGHT model flying is about. Contests require models to fly for three minutes from a 5 or 10 second motor run. Total of 3 or 5 flights in the contest with the total time counting towards the score. I have flown these classes for many years and my designs ( some of which are over 50 years old) are still winning contests.
I got news today that my Blizzard design again won the Danish Championship in addition to previously winning the Scandinavian Championship.
This link shows some of the progress of my design

I have recently been approached by a kit manufacturer who wants to produce laser kits of three of my free flight designs. I have prepared lasercut drawings for the Blizzard and am finishing up the laser drawings for my larger Hi-Tee and Executioner.

To give an idea of how these Free flight models perform, this is my Blizzard ( note no RC control). Danish fliers are reaching over 200 metres in 10 seconds (72kph vertical), about TWICE the climb rate of my new Pulsar 4.0 metre model.
