In UMS class all specifications and rules will be as per the usual « AMA event 631« , but with a few additionnal requirements.
UMS (Unusual Material Sailplane) class is a scratch build sailplane with unusual materials (packing tape, saran wrap, cardboard, whatever) and likely sparebox pieces. No size limit. Three or four rounds will be flown in the ALES format. Pure fun, nothing serious here! Task time and launch height will be negociated by the pilots at the meeting.
UMS class special requirements:
Wingspan : 1 to 4.0 meters
Weight : no limitations
Motorization: is not essential; electric, hand or bungee launches permitted
Materials: the implementation must show at least one functional design element not usually found in modern RC sailplanes. Be imaginative.
Decoration: the sailplane must show some creative art decoration: be creative! Hey, why not ask a 5-year old for help? 😉
It’s time to build !
