Postal Contest rules:

 

 

  • Models must be "Skinny Bomber" type ROG free-flight rubber-powered.

  • Official flights may be made up to 2 weeks ahead of the deadline.

  • 10 flight attempts, your best 2 durations are your score.

  • Under 18 years of age compete in Junior/Senior class, over 18 flies in Open class.

  • Report your score, name, age class, and whether you flew indoor or outdoor at SkyBattle2022@gmail.com

  • Indoor flights must ROG (take off from the floor) but outdoor flights may be hand-launched.

  • Model must be “built to the plan” but minor alterations are allowed, like a different prop or wheels, any covering material you like, any size rubber motor, etc.

The "Skinny Bomber" is the official 2022 OFFC One-Design model!

It was designed by Howard Littman, who markets an excellent laser-cut kit.  You can build yours from free plans instead, if you prefer.

This is a "postal" contest, where pilots fly their models at their home field, and report results to headquarters by email.
