Mark about to launch Ian's Eish!
Craig with Michelle's Suprinity. This model came to grief in a mid-air shortly after this photo was taken. Michelle was later involved in another mid-air yet came back to take a very credible 5th.

Chris with Conrads number 2. His Experience Pro was involved in the mid-air with Michelle's Suprinity.

Has there been any feedback on the 3 x F3J rules changes proposed for 2008?

1. All pilots to provide 3 frequencies, and the organisers will identify one of these that the pilot must use for all the preliminary rounds (excluding fly-offs & re-flights)

2. The 20cm score is for the first 2 metres from the spot, i.e. 0 - 0.2m = 100, 0.2 - 0.4m = 99, etc., up until 1.8 - 2 m = 91, then 2 m - 3m = 90,...

3. The landing is not scored if the glider remains speared in the ground (tail not touching the ground), or the model ends up inverted after landing.

They where only on the agenda this year to make people aware of the proposals. They will be voted upon during the March 2008 CIAM meeting.
