SOGGI Open ALES Contest - Sept 28th
« on: June 03, 2019, 12:59:32 pm »
Hey folks,

SOGGI will be hosting an open ALES contest for electric sailplanes on September 28th. You are invited to join us.

ALES, or Altitude Limited Electric Soaring, is a contest format for electric sailplanes which uses an ESC limiter to cutoff the motor at 30s run and/or 200m altitude, after which you must complete the duration task (10 minutes total, so 9:30 after cutoff) and perform a spot landing (for additional points).

It does require getting an altitude limiter like a CAM from http://www.soaringcircuits.com/ which plugs in between the ESC and Receiver.

All electric sailplanes are welcome, provided they have been equipped with a limiter.

The contest will be held at SOGGI's field on Haldibrook rd off Hwy 6 west of Hamilton.
