TOM HOLDING TODD'S FUN FLY BEFORE THE TEST ALES CONTEST

 

ALES;  ALTITUDE LIMITING ELECTRIC SOARING 

A TIMER/ALTITUDE CHIP IS PLUGGED IN LINE WITH THE SPEED CONTROL USING STANDARD
PLUGS. THIS UNIT WILL SHUT DOWN THE MOTOR AT 200 METERS OR 30 SECONDS, WHICH EVER
OCCURS FIRST. THE PILOT HAS A PERSON WITH STOP WATCH TIMING HIS FLIGHT. THE FLIGHTS
WERE 5 MINUTE DURATION WITH A SPOT LANDING FOR EXTRA POINTS.

A TIMER WITH STOP WATCH STARTS THE CLOCK WHEN THE PLANE LEAVES THE PLOT'S HAND.

 

THE SPOT WAS SIMPLE, A LINE AND YOUR GOAL IS TO LAND AND STOP ON THE LINE AS CLOSE TO
THE DESIGNATED EVENT TIME LIMIT. 

TODD IS LAUNCHING FROM TARGET LANDING SPOT

TODD ELECTRIC SAILPLANE DID NOT HAVE THE TIME ELIMINATOR UNIT ABOARD, SO HIS 
FELLOW TIMER TOLD HIM TO CUT POWER AT 30 SECONDS

TOM YELLED "CUT"

 

 

TODD'S FLIGHT WAS A GOOD ONE
