When I arrived I made some test flights of my Pearl e202 after doing repairs on the stab after the Nats, flights were pretty good but I think I need adjustments yet on the power phase of the flight. This was their mostly silent meet so there was a lot of rubber models, gliders, and a couple of glow powered airplanes. I flew P30, scale, and HL glider.
It appeared that there was some lift in the morning but it was more consistent in the afternoon. My last P30 flight was made in the afternoon and it landed fairly close to the edge of the grass area of the field. I was well satisfied as I do not have a tracker. Dave Edmondson had his P30 land a couple of miles away and it was found by using the tracker.
I spent a great deal of time flying at this contest but didn’t get as much time to spend on taking pictures and video as I would have liked. One person I met has corresponded with me through the Internet. Steve had a beautiful Korda rubber model that uses the rubber band burning DT system. It looked like a good combination of old tech and new tech. Gary Oakins had a really nice power flight that had people wondering if the DT was going trip, see flight in video link.
