BIXLER LEAGUE 2017

The 2017 Bixler Competition finally got under way after a poor start to the flying season with the first results logged on to the results sheet.

The league is based on a power duration competition for a single model type. The competition will be run over a nominated number of rounds. These will take place on club flying days between 1st March and 30th September.

The Competition Procedure
  1. The competition will be run over 20 rounds where each round will take place on a different flying day. To qualify for the fly-off a minimum of 5 rounds must be entered.
  2. A CD (Competition Director) will be nominated for each round.
  3. The CD will specify the launch (or take-off) and landing areas, depending on the conditions prevailing.
  4. Each round will be flown to a 5 minute maximum. Individual competitor flight times will be recorded by the CD and converted into seconds to represent the score in points. Hence a maximum flight time will record 300 points.
  5. The motor run time will be 30 seconds for an unmodified power-train and 20 seconds for a modified power-train. Further motor runs are not permitted throughout the flight and landing phases. Any contravention of this will result in a nil point score being recorded. The CD will be responsible for timing motor runs. 
  6. Landing accuracy will be rewarded with bonus points. The CD will be responsible for measuring and recording. The landing points will be added to the flight time. See table below.
  7. On completion of the league each competitor’s top 5 scores will be added together to give a final total score. From these final scores, the top 5 competitors will then take part in a single flying day 3 round fly-off. This will take place in October where the nominated day will be decided by mutual consent of those competing.
