CRCM Fun Fly # 1 - May 5, 2013
Pilot's Meeting: 9:00 am
Object: to drop the marker (bomb) as close as possible to the target flag placed on the field.
A target flag will be placed off to one side of the landing field so as not to interfere with landings and take offs. Each pilot will be provided a bomb and a rack that holds the bomb which they will attach to their plane.
The pilot will take off, circle the field and line up for a bomb drop.
The bomb will be released from the plane by executing a roll. The bomb will fall off of the plane due to the force of gravity. The numbered 2 foot flag wrapped around the bomb will unroll and mark the spot.
A measurement will be taken of the distance from the flag to the final location of the bomb. The measurement will be recorded for each pilot by the number on their flag/bomb
Novice level pilots will fly with a trainer on a buddy box. The trainer pilot will be allowed to take the plane off and line the plane up with the target. The trainer should let the novice execute the roll as best as possible.
Bombs and racks are available to any pilot who wishes to practice beforehand. Only bombs provided may be used during the competition however, pilots may construct their own custom rack of similar design and function. No mechanical or servo actuated release will be allowed.
1) The bomb must be dropped by executing a roll with the plane flying straight and level
2) If the bomb rack breaks or there is a malfunction of any type, the pilot will be allowed to fix the rack and re-do their turn.
Two balloons will be placed on the flying field approximately 20 yards apart.
The timer will call start to the pilot and will start the stop watch.
The pilot will then taxi over to one of the two balloons and break it with the plane.
The pilot will take off and must leave the blacktop field in the air.
The pilot will land back on the blacktop field and taxi over to the second balloon breaking it with their plane.
The timer will stop the stopwatch as soon as the second balloon breaks and record the elapsed time for that pilot.
1) If a balloon is knocked loose then the pilot has the option to replace the balloon in the holder and return to the flight line, or to chase it with the plane and break the balloon where it is. In either case, the stopwatch continues to run.
2) Plane restarts will be allowed. The timer will keep running.
3) The plane wheels must be on the ground at the time the balloons are broken.
4) Novice level pilots will not be required to take off. They will just taxi from one ballon to the next.
