Right Engine Noise Solved ?

From:Hiding in the desert
Roger, problem solved, at least for groovy sounding engine noise………there must be an app you can play for that!


Editor’s comment: to play the App you need a smart phone, now I Know F1C World Champ, Taron  has one but the others ?


Re: Am Cup Report

From:Jack Greening Jr

Hi Jim,

I have noticed that F1E seems to slide waay down the list of classes.  E
usually follows D in the alphabet so I am wondering why “E” is reduced
in prominence among the FAI Classes.  It rarely, if ever, provokes
controversy and the timing and scoring system seems to be universally
accepted by the participants.  Perhaps a class that produces such happy
participation without controversy might garner greater respect and
emulation.  Something to consider.

Sorry that Texas does not have the hills necessary to stimulate “E” interest

Jack Greening


Editor’s Observation : maybe you are right Jack. I think F1E is clearly the class for gentlemen. A number of distinguished CIAM members are F1E regulars.  And you don’t have to fall over when you launch your glider, worry about the rubber motor breaking , how quick the timer’s reactions are on the engine run  or limiting your energy.  All you need is nice hill and wind that blows the right way.  I understand that in some sites they even  have mules to carry you back to the top.
