Yes, the contest that even Covid couldn't stop will happen again this year!

The O.F.F.C Spot-Landing/Spot Time contest will be held, on the field at the Stonehurst Rec Center,9901 Dronfield Ave, Sun Valley, CA on Wednesday, June 16 at 8:00 AM (Until we're blown out, usually about 10:30).  The rules are the same as last year, any rubber powered model that can take off from a card table, 15 second minimum flight, spot landing and predicted flight time tasks.

Task 1:  Land as close as possible to the flag planted at center of field.
Task 2:  Fly as close as possible to the duration you predict/guess before each flight
    • Pilots may use any rubber-powered FF model aircraft which can make an unassisted takeoff.  No gadgetry.  (helicopters and autogyros OK)
    • Must R.O.T. from tabletop (card tables are provided).
    • Minimum flight time is 15 seconds.
    • 4 attempts on each task.  
    • Tasks may be flown separately or together on the same flight.
    • Flights under 15 seconds do not count as an attempt.
    • Pilot is responsible for making sure each flight score is recorded.
    • CD is Dave Gee 818-383-7651
