Are multiple entries allowed (meaning: if I submit a score, can I try to improve it then later)?




At the cost of losing initial score, of course.

No restriction to one  airplane, though.   Separate scores welcomed in that instance

e:   International Postal Competition. July 1/21 to Feb 28/22
Greetings to all!   It is now just over four months since I invited participation in this event for P30s plus supporting classes for Classic 1/2A and  KK Senator.  A lot of positive comment was forthcoming but entries to date have been a little sparse in comparison even though much of favourable northern hemisphere flying opportunity is fading.
To some extent I have been remiss in  not encouraging members of groups to fly but I have had very little time to spend in same or on modelling affairs in general.  Three weeks after announcement of the  postal my old beloved station-wagon was T-boned by a motorist running a red light and written off as a total loss.  My wife had to be cut out and even now is still engaged in intensive therapy, so I trust you will understand my general lack of Postal enthusiasm  in the interim. 
I thank all who touched base and also  those who  have sent scores, whose numbers I trust will yet be swelled by others from Southern climes.   Remember that scores are acceptable from any time in the July-February period so existing sets of times from any contest or flying sequence are valid, as are multiple entries where different models were flown.   As said initially I have not been active in the group of late and time is still limited;  I request anyone who may have left me comments or scores therein to please advise me direct at [email protected] and use that email for more to follow.....  says he hopefully .... lol        Competition rules also available.   Good flying, wherever in the world you might be.       Jim Moseley

Count me in also. Hope the wife continues to improve. Now I have a reason to take my Souper P-30 out flying.

Just a gentle reminder that the Postal closes February 28th.   Scores returned by March 14th, please.

International Postal Contest.
My thanks to all who supported the postal.  I was surprised that the Classic 1/2A brought no interest and  the KK Senator attracted only two flyers but ....  so be it.    P30 brought a relatively modest return considering the general popularity of the class but the scores indicate dedication and enjoyment for all.
Ian Haigh excelled in posting maximums!  He lives on a small farm and took advantage of conditions on several occasions to fly a total of 13 before eventually dropping one. Outstanding, Ian !
Caleb Finn was among those who flew triple max's, a very good time for a 6 year old lad.  Not to be outdone, brother Paul (3 years) obviously showed that he'd mastered the launch of a rubber model;   well done, both !
Michael Jester made but two flights with his alternative model, initially losing it on the second flight.  Eventually located after a four hour search and too tired to continue with a final flight.  My thanks to all who flew and enjoyed themselves.     Jim

Thanks for running this Jim, even though the weather was so bad right through the winter that I couldn't find a flyable day! I think I'll have to spend next winter in Victoria. Those times are amazing.

What about .020's in 1/2A?

For what purpose, Greg?     .020's have own class in 1/4A,  is it flown at all these days?   It seemed to fade out from the NY scene quite some years ago.

I think it was 2004, my grandson and I went on our first trip to Muncie for the NATS.  He had built a T-Bird with a Tee Dee .020 for 1/4A Nostalgia.  We never thought about 1/2A.  He placed in the upper third in the results flying against adults.  Viewing the NATS results later in the Digest we discovered his time would have won 1/2A Classic.  The next two years he entered both Classic and AMA Gas, winning both, and the following year, he won Classic and placed high in AMA.

I see the .049 displacement as an upward motor size limit; but see no lower limit. There's little, IMHO, to disqualify smaller planes with fine designs for .020.

Winning is not my ultimate goal.

BTW, I now reside in SE Arizona.

Then, there's the PAL Infant .020 that my Brother Bob and his Sons Rob and Eric, and Friends (Dave Acton, for one) had essentially recreated. I bought and have have two of them NIB, and would like to honor him by using them for something a bit more serious than tootling around in a Dakota. That's IF I ever get them that far...

Another project on the board is to develop a design for a rubber powered 1/24 Ki-100, for which I cannot find any plans. There are more 1/24 designs for Allied planes than for Axis, and some of those are pretty neato airplanes. This model could be relatively easily made up by converting a Ki-61 plan; which was the original's starting point, and is mine, too.
