Re:Altimeter timer

From: Carrol Allen

With the talk of using altimeter data as a stop watch an interesting observation.
I use Andriukov simplicity timers that store the flight data.
During the Max Men competion I dropped the 3rd round by 8 secs. Looking at the flight data I made a max of 180 secs. The difference is that the timer only stores an altitude every 10 secs late in the flight, so the 8 sec drop wasn’t recorded.
Altimeters would have to be upgraded to store every sec and I don’t know if they have the storage capacity for a 10 min flight.

Editor’s comment

Carroll and Craig (who made a comment a couple of issues back)

I think that Allard’s suggestion on FB that some form of managed trial be done to make sure that all issues are addressed before making a rules proposal is very important for thi success of such an idea.
Some investment would be required to make a suitable device and it would help the developer if the requirements did not chnage too much.
That would also serve to keep the costs down.

Dino Corner1
From: michael achterberg

To fellow Dino’s.
Well, it seems like nobody cares enough to write in to say No to 25gr. Everyone says they don’t want it, but nobody takes the time to write and voice there opinion. After talking to everyone during the Feb contests was surprized to hear no one wanted the change except one. Problem is that the gap between the best and the rest is that the gap will widen. If you think its hard to beat Alex wait till u try with 25.
Hears an idea. Lets make a handicap system. Alex gets 25gr and the rest get 30gr. An I need 35gr.. Perfect.. Even throwing it out my ear I can do well with 35gr.. And coupe with there multi flyoffs is
Screaming for 5gr… Your welcome Tony?..

Dino Corner 2

As we mentioned in a previous SEN there were no “offficial” meeting around the rules at the fab Feb events but there were a few leess formal gatherings, as mentioned by Dino leader Mike

Not sure how a Kangaroo is related to Dino but here is some further comments from another campfire session, (has to be a campfire as there are no pubs or bars in Lost Hills)

Results of rules Meeting Lost Hills.
These are my impressions of the meeting.
With twenty two countries in attendance at Lost Hills for the Fab Feb Meetings, i.e., Kiwi Cup, North America Cup and the Max men, it was certainly an excellent chance to get an overall view from the flyers of the world of what changes we, the flyers wanted.

After a lot of discussion it became very clear that those in attendance did not want any changes made to the model specifications on how we fly them at present.

One item that the group would like to see changed was wind speed.
1. That the maximum wind speed at present is 9 meters per second. If this was reduced to 5 or 6 meters per second, it would make smaller fields friendlier (flight distances would be reduced by a third).
2. There was also a lot of discussion on some form of electronic timing. To me this was over my head but seemed like a device that is attached to the model, starts on launch and records the time when the model lands.
No doubt someone in the electronic field could invent this device which would be great for the long fly offs where visibility can be a problem.

Overall it was an interesting evening without anyone getting out of control.
