The 2017 DDMAC Easter Fly-In will have a scale model theme.
However, you are welcome to come along and fly any type aircraft (fixed wing, helicopter or multi rotor) and enjoy the day.
There will be a prize for the best scale model on the day.
This will be an informal event, judged by a few of our club members based on the models general appearance and its flying, in a scale like manner. There will no formal flying manoeuvres, we just want people to come along and have some fun and enjoy themselves.
If the aircraft looks like a full-size aircraft (foamee’s or whatever), just come along and fly it.
We will also hold our ETA event (details below). This event is open to any aircraft.
1. ETA Fixed Wing, Helicopters & Multi Rotor Draw a time from a hat (can be anything from 90 to 150 seconds). Flyer has to take off and land, trying to land in a time, as near as possible to the time drawn from the hat. Winner is the pilot who lands the nearest to their time. Time starts from when the wheels or skids (helicopters / multi rotor) leave the ground and ends when they wheels/skids touch back down (no transmitter timers or watches allowed).
All pilots will be briefed, as they arrive regarding the flying field rules and transmitter control. If you have any questions, please ask. The safety of everyone is paramount.
Tea & Coffee will be available in the club cabin throughout the day.
We will be looking to serve bacon and sausage sandwiches around mid-day.
There will be a charity donation jar on the prize table. Any donations will be gratefully received and will go to the clubs nominated charity for the year–
