RC India - Flying and racing with open minds !




Dear all -

We have just passed 5 years of existence, and the milestone of 10000 members (despite the spammers we detected and deleted!). Thank you all for brightening up some part of every day of my life for the past 5 years, and I am sure many of you feel the same when you visit RC India.

As a payback, we will be conducting another set of sweepstakes to commemorate the occasion.

We will have two winners this time.  The price is going to be two  Indian Rupees 20,000 shopping sprees, each at one of the leading local hobby stores in India, namely RCDhamaka and RCBazaar.  The prize money is coming out of the payments from Google Adsense ads on top of the RC India, so it is self paid.

The general conditions are :

1.  The build and maiden should between 9th March 2014 and 10am on 15 May 2014.

2.  This has to be a new build, as documented by newspapers placed near the starting off material for the build. Please post multiple pictures allowing us to clearly authenticate the date claims (at least couple of pics with the items and newspaper, with the newspaper placed at multiple locations amongst the parts, and one with the date information on the news paper clearly shown).  We will consider partial builds at very early stages, on a case by case basis (so that this sweepstakes act as a catalyst for people to finish those builds).

3.  Each submission should be presented as a NEW build thread in the appropriate board, with the tag that this is a candidate entry into the sweepstakes.

4.  Periodic / intermediate stage pics should be posted, again with newspaper verification, at least 3 times during the course of the entire build.

5.  The final product should do its intended purpose, with reasonable stability. For aircraft, that means it should fly, for cars, they should run, etc. This must be supported by video evidence, with a single continuous shot of the model in closeup first, and then moving into action / flight.

Judging etc :

6.  ARF builds of airplanes, boats and quads will get 1x chance to win. I am not aware of ARF build for cars, so that is out (correct me if I am wrong).

7.  Kit builds of helis and cars will get 3x chances to win.

8.  Scratch/kit builds of airplanes and boats will get 5x chances to win.

9.  If you are building something exquisite that does not fit into any of the above, will be considered as they are raised, and we will update this post to list those.

10. We may adjust the chance multipliers based on the merits of each build, if we strongly feel the need for that.

11. Although people suggested using a voting system to find the winners, I see multiple problems with it. For now, let us keep this simple. It will also allow every member except me to participate.

12. [UPDATE] The models have to be radio controlled, but they can unpowered (like slope soaring gliders).  No static models, and if you are submitting multiple entires, the models have to be dissimilar. 

So... happy building every one !

Once again, thank you and we look forward to many more years of keeping this passion alive Smiley

UPDATE 1 : There will be another Indian Rupees 12,000 "youngster prize" for someone who is below 19 years of age. That is, people who are have not celebrated their 19th birthday yet as on May 15, 2014.  This price was sponsored by a forum member who prefers to remain anonymous for the sum of 10K, and the the owner of RCForAll added 2K to it as the winner will be shopping from this store. Thank you both.

Got a REAL SHOCK.
Have to build all night tonight to get it ready by 10am tomorrow.
Was going to complain to Anwar sir about such short notice.

Only on the second read saw the deadline was not 15th Mar, but May.
Thank God for small mercies. Now we can try to catch up with Sanjay sir.  Grin

In the interest of being fair to everyone, I feel that it is best that we strictly follow condition #5. Hopefully the effort to convert it to RC is manageable.

Well I been into aeromodelling since I was in School....  had won the "WINGS Open" at "Bombay" (as it was known then) in 1985 for control line aerobatics (was doing my graduation at that time) and had received a big gold trophy....  Mr Bhivandiwala organised it and gave good awards.
Our team had won the following medals:-
1.   Gold for Control Line Aerobatics
2.   Silver and Bronze for Control line speed
3.   Bronze for Free Flight Glider
Sharma Models helped us train to win the medals

Bumping this thread Smiley

Looking at the activity on the forum for the past two weeks, which has been overwhelmingly creative/positive, it seems like we should have some kind of sweepstakes every month or couple of months !  Now most of the threads are related to hardcore modeling/RC/building Thumbs Up

What can be a suitable alternative to a Newspaper for the date formalities?

I am held up for more than a week due to lack of Newspaper and related formalities.  Grin.  Now I have to go searching for one each time especially for this since I have stopped subscribing to it this Year.
