Impington Village College Model Aeroplane Club indoor flying event November 2015


This year's November Impington Village College Model Aeroplane Club indoor flying event took place  Sunday 1st November 2015. The second hall was given over to RTP and small indoor RC models. A day of flying and talking was enjoyed by all, with scale models, profile models, card combat models and the day finishing with an excellent three model combat session. On the 4.5 metre line length this was full on and great fun.

The young and even younger enjoying three model combat.
Yes, three models at once and all still in flying condition after many missions, tissue was the only thing harmed. A short video showing one of the missions can be seen at IVCMAC indoor flying event November 2015.

Another highlight of the day for me was the Short-Mayo composite project by Will Beavor, the two models could take off together and separate midair.
Other photos and a short video of the Short S.21 Maia (G-ADHK) in flight can be seen at IVCMAC indoor flying event November 2015.

Many thanks to David, Will and Carl and his sons.

RTP in education


RTP has been used in Scouts and Air Cadets for many years, but it is also used in schools and universities. The University of Bristol use RTP model flying as a challenge for their first year undergraduate students studying aerospace engineering. The students challenge is to create a flying machine learning through experimentation, working with colleagues, and understanding improvements in design solutions for the future.
A video from the University of Bristol of some amazing flying machines.
