Hi everyone,
I had proposed this contest a month or so back, but delayed it at the request of young members facing exams. I was told that the exams end on 3rd April.

So here we go...
Start date: 4th April. Closing date 30th April midnight.

Early Bird prize in each category for the FIRST member to post a video on RCI of a flight meeting/exceeding the minimum stipulated goal, flown during the contest period. The model may have been built earlier, but the flight must be on or after 4th April, ie, tomorrow onwards till 30th.

The prizes, categories and goals are:
1. Rs 1000 for the first 10+ second flight by a hand launch chuck glider
2. Rs 2000 for the first 20+ second flight by a hand/catapult launched glider
3. Rs 3000 for the first 60+ second by a rubber power/hand/catapult launch free flight mode
4. Rs 4000 for the first 120+ second flight by an RC/FF glider (50m towline or 10m rubber histart)
5. Rs 5000 for the first 120+ second flight with solar power motor/controls (no onboard battery)

Note that these goals are not hard to achieve! So newbies should try.

Happy to report that Saikat sir and ssk320 (Suman sir from the US) offered to co-sponsor.
So we have 2 additional prizes in each category.

After the Early Bird prize, equal prize to the two highest duration flights (in the category) with flight video posted on RCI by the deadline. The only condition is that the duration must exceed that of the Early Bird winner of that category.

So, ladies and gentlemen, best of luck. On your marks, get set, go!

Disclaimer: This has no commercial connection. Iím an old aeromodeller and a pensioner doing what I can to encourage grassroots low cost aeromodelling. Iím grateful that two members offered to co-sponsor. I know that there a few old time aeromodellers waiting to sponsor, if such contests generate enough interest...

I will donate a prize too, for the most innovative rubber powered scratch build. The prize will depend on the location of the winner, ie if he is local in my area it may be a model airframe, or if outstation some goodies. Winner to be decided by Mr. Iyer

Nidheesh does have a point - many competitive and entrance exams in April May. Request Mr. Iyer to extend

Problem statement, eh?
We are getting affected by the SAE High Lift competitions, where all Indian teams have great Ďproblem statementsí and other paper work, but NO ONE RECORDED A FLIGHT, as far as Iím aware.
My requests to SAE teams have produced no response.
http://www.rcindia.org/rc-events/sae-contests/

So you can even consider a prize for the Best Problem Statement NOT Supported by a flight!

Ha Ha, never meant to offend anyone here. This is the trend now a days and no harm picking up some new slang Sir.
I mean to say you can decide the category, it would be great if the prize is given to a female so that girls can also come forward in this hobby.
