Model Flying Club Victory at the Payload Challenge

Model Flying Club Victory at the National Payload Challenge!

Back in October, Model Fying Club were set the task, by Mr Green, of building a model to a difficult specification to transport a payload approximately the size of a shoe box and weighing half a kilogram. This was so they could compete in the national competition set up by the BMFA. Schools and youth groups were invited to compete to carry the payload over the greatest distance in 5 minutes, with a model of their own design.  After a demanding 2 days of competition, and some nail biting moments … including crashes… the team came out on top as overall winners! This was a wonderful result for such a hard working group of young aeronautical engineers. Congratulations.
