RES/100 Challenge Round 2 at BERG.

With the Nat’s held in KZN this weekend BERG club members that did not enter were out in force on Sunday at The BERG field with their RES thermal ship’s to fly a very close fought competition
This is what a thermal looks like – (provided that you have the correct dark glasses that is WSB standard issue- also note spy satellite vapor trail in bottom left corner)

Tony's 2.5 meter Tsotsi .

Evan getting read to Fly (Standard 2 Meter Tsotsi )

Flying in Grand Style (Al Capone-Zimmie)


BDSALL(Barn Door Stops All) nothing is ever small on Mike's models

Mike's 2.8 meter RES with Pathfinder fuse.

Mike relaxing while Evan is working out the score.

Evan's 2 Meter Tsotsi.

The Results:

1st Evan Shaw 2083 - 2 met Tsotsi

2nd Piet Rheedres 2076 - 2,5 met Tsotsi

3rd Mike May 2009 - 2.8 met Own design (Built-up wing on Pathfinder fuselage)

4th Peter Eagle 1874 - 2 met Tsotsi (Borrowed from Evan)

5th Tony Roberts 1836 - 2,5 met Tsotsi (Rudder, Elevator only - No Spoilers)

Possible Max 2120. It can be seen from the results the scores were particularly high and as mentioned earlier a close fought battle ensued for the top spots. In the end it was the landing that separated the top three.

The Club Score is 4193 out of a possible 4240

Luister Boet,
Hy draai mooi maar het nie brieke wat ek kan aanpas nie.
when I cut down my barndoors watch out, only landings set me back.
