2017 Festival of Pylon will take place over the weekend of 23rd & 24th September at the BMFA National Centre Buckminster Nr Grantham. This event will cover all aspects of pylon racing and with two courses set up one to cover Club 2000 & E2k models, the other course for F3d, F5D and F3T models.
Alongside the normal pylon race activates there will be a Run What You Brung class, this is your chance to have ago with whatever you have, be it a Wot 4, EFX racer or a foam wing FPV racer (anything you have will do) your all welcome and have ago. We will give you a chance have a couple of practice flights with one of our experienced pilots to guide you and help with advice on the Saturday.
All you need to take part is an R/C model aircraft and your BMFA membership card (B not required) and a small fee of £8 per day.
As a basic guide smaller models of around 1000mm wing span will fly the smaller course, larger models will fly around the larger course. If youre coming for the first time my recommendation is that you use a model that youre familiar and set it up to be smooth.
Non flying spectators are welcome to come along, dont be surprised to find you involved before the end of the day.
Tea and coffee will be available during the day with a Barbeque and suitable entertainment on Saturday evening, some food will be provided for a small donation or you can bring your own and cook to your hearts content.
Camping is available on site for a small cost of £5 pernight. Pre-booking is required ether directly with the BMFA or through us.
Local accommodation is also available with 12 or more places to lay your head within 15 miles there will be something to suit most budgets.
