Dayton Ohio DARTS
2.4 GHz Longest Flight of the Day

Sunday - October 31, 2010

Twin Towers Park, Fairborn, Ohio
Sponsored by the DARTS (Dayton ARea Thermal Soarers)

This event is for 2.4 GHz Spread Spectrum radio controlled aircraft only and will start at 11:00 A.M. and end at 4:00 P.M.  

Things you need to know:  

The longest thermal flights of the day by winch launched motorless sailplanes win with the CD timing all thermal flights and the clock being truncated to the whole second. Sailplanes pilots will hand their stop watch in at the CD’s table and then walk to a winch to launch. Landings must be announced to the CD.  

There is a entry fee of $2.00. This is not an AMA sanctioned event.  

Longest flight of the day certificates will be awarded to 3 places.   E

lectric powered 2.4 GHz controlled spotter aircraft are allowed and highly encouraged.  Or in other words it’s an electric fun fly while you wait for your thermal to come by.  

Pilots may arrive and leave and fly when they choose. 

If you place the CD will get your certificate to you one way or another.   Aircraft still in the air at 4:00 P.M. may continue their flight as long as they can.

There will be no landing task or landing points but you must make it back to the field for the flight to count. See field boundaries below.
