Hatcheck – International Challenge

Wawaywanda NY, May 21-22 2022
The weekend was mostly windy, turbulent and very hot on Sunday. All flying was done from the south road. There are no crops on the west and north sides and no models flew off the field. The FAC guys held a large contest over the weekend and they located themselves further up field to the west. On Sunday, Dave Acton’s modeling equipment and tools were offered for adoption.

My small Q model, flying with a 15 second motor run, got tossed over into a canal by a gust on it’s fifth flight. It probably time for a replacement. Sunday started dead calm, so the B max was raised to 6 minutes on the fist flight. Immediately after Alex maxed, the wind and turbulence stepped up. The A guys were more sensible and angled for a 4-minute max on their first flight. Subsequent maxes were at 2:30 or 3 minutes. It’s was nice to have Jama and Alex displaying their superb flying skills in windy conditions.
