Default A fun e-glider event on Long Island - April 25, 26 2015

The Long Island Silent Flyers would like to announce that we will be hosting the Eastern Soaring League on April 25 and 26 for an Altitude Limited Electric Soaring Contest, ALES. All AMA members are welcome.

Registration site:
http://www.flyesl.org/Contest.aspx?contestid=193

If you have ANY problems registering let me know.

Description:

This will be a electric launched thermal duration soaring contest flown under AMA rules for event 631, Altitude Limited Electric Soaring, ALES. See page 12 at this link:
https://www.modelaircraft.org/files/...16Electric.pdf

Contest results will be reported to both the Eastern Soaring League and the ALES League.

All gliders will require an ALES device set to 200 meters. If you are not familiar with ALES devices you can read more about them here:http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...ht=ALES+Device


A maximum registration of 44 pilots has been set to insure plenty of room for everyone to fly and land with no overlap of landing circles.

You can learn more about the club and the flying field at www.lisf.org


We will fly Expert Class, Sportsman Class and Novice Class.

Expert and Sportsman awards to 3rd place.

All Novice pilots will receive a certificate. Novice fly FREE.

For GPS and MapQuest users, the address for the field entrance is 25 Southwoods Road, Syosset, NY 11792.

If you need a place to stay you can find information about options here:
http://www.flyesl.org/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=318



LISF is very friendly to new pilots and those who have never flown an ALES contest before. We have been hosting ESL TD and DLG contests for years. This will be our first hosted ESL ALES contest.


If you have questions, please ask. That is the purpose of this discussion thread.

Well, it is only January and we already have 6 pilots registered. That's a good sign that this event should be well attended. Love to get four flight groups of 7 to 8 pilots each.

We have plenty of room to support up to 13 pilots per flight group but we don't plan it to get that large. 8 per flight group would be a very nice number. When we run TD contests we usually have 8 in the air at once and it works very well.

We are up to 15 pilots and we have our first Novice. So if you are coming and you have that hesitant newbie that you would like to take on an adventure, bring them along. There will be at least one other Novice at the event. We will make every effort to make Novices feel welcome and comfortable.

Also, assuming that eSAP follows the same guidelines as SAP, the contest will now qualify for eSAP Level 4 contest points. And note, this is an AMA sanctioned event.

I expect we will get at least 5 more pilots by time of the contest. so you Level 5 eSAP pilots should now be comfortable to register. I know you guys like to hang back.

I was at the field today to check out conditions. The field is in perfect condition. In fact they give us one of the largest grass cuts we have had in years. The entire 800x1600 feet of the field was cut. I post photos below.
Long range Forecast for the weekend is 55 degrees and sunny. Perfect!

While at the field I did my final tune-up and check out. Needed some minor adjustments on my back-up plane, a Radian that has an upgraded prop and battery but is otherwise stock. Flying great and found plenty of lift.
My main e-glider is a Supra Pro wing on a Supra Pro fuse that was converted to electric by my friend George. George will be co-CD for this event.
Right now we have 16 registered but people at the field today said they were going sign up and I have received a few e-mails from remote folks who plan to come. I think we will have 24 or more. At 24 that would be 3 flight groups of 8 pilots each or 4 groups of 6 depending if we go for more flying or more time between rounds. I am open to opinions. We will decide at the contest.

Super! There are advantages to living in a major metropolitan area and being able to organize a contest like this is one. Enjoy and let us know how it went. Photos would be great!
