While not new to r/c soaring, I am new to electric soaring. Two competitive tasks have caught my eye: F5J and Battery Allocation. Are there similar tasks?

Never heard of Battery Allocation. What's that?

Jim,

Welecom to Wattflyer!

I am not sure of the difference but hopefully "rcjunkie" can give us the details.

The Battery Allocation Event as flown at the NATS consisted of 3 rounds - 12, 15 and 20 minutes. The flyer may run the motor as often as desired during a round but each flyer has to fly ALL 3 rounds on a single charge. I believe there were limitations on battery type (nicad only) and capacity. At the NATS each round was flown Man-on-Man (MOM) format.

I found some F5J rules here but I do not know if they are the most up to date.

gliding time only is counted towards flight score
a spot landing worth 100 points reducing by 20 points for every 3 metres
zero landing points if the model touches the competitor or their helper on landing
zero landing points if the working time is overflown
30 point penalty if the working time is overflown
zero flight score if working time is overflown by more than 1 minute
zero flight score if parts lost off the model in flight, except for collisions and landing
maximum of 2 helpers allowedhe following is an overview:
