Wouldn't a competition be better than a lottery ?   Head Scratching

Deep inside my mind, I want newcomers to win.  Not veterans with mucho skills aided by disposable income.

The way the sweepstakes are designed allows the disadvantaged a fair chance (thus in line with my ulterior motive).

The only thing we INSIST on is that the rules are followed at every stage.  The builds have to be documented from the beginning to end with newspaper dates multiple times, and the maiden video should clearly show the article in rest, going into motion and staying in motion in a single continuous shot.

Basically, we want to see FAIRNESS in the entries. Please spare us from having to second guess the authenticity of anything !

This is absolutely great.
Finally a sweepstake I can participate in.

Though its sad that a multirotor will only get a single entry :/

Anyway, thank you for the great opportunity Anwar Sir.

Dear Sanjay Rai / Anwar  
In no way was I questioning the judges.... or doubt the authenticity of anything.
 
My point is that a lottery system would deter people from doing something creative.....
Let's say If a person were to make scratch builds.... he would put in more effort (or at least be tempted) to make more number of different planes of average (or even poor) build quality, just to increase his chance in the draw.......... rather than making one build of very good quality (that would bring out the talent in him).
 
I agree that participation needs to be increased....... but we also need to encourage creative thinking.... and come up with new ideas.
 






P.S. Maybe, you could think of organizing a competition also in the future...

Prasad, I think you need to have more confidence in the management of the sweepstakes. Have a detailed look at how last years went. If you put your heart into it, there will be rewards. If you participate only for the prize, you will lose every which way

My point is that a lottery system would deter people from doing something creative.....

It is quite startling to me is that money is the real motivator for creativity Wink  I thought it was mostly human nature.

The creativity and competition we want is for people to scratch build instead of putting together ARFs. There is enough incentive here for the same.  If anything, a full balsa scratch build should have a 10x multiplier, similarly if you soldered a quad controller from scratch.  Other than that, we seem to be have the right mix of competition and possibility for everyone.

Plus the logistics of doing a proper competition over the internet would get quite interesting. It is easy to throw ideas out there, but taking responsibility for fairness is not easy when the entire business is conducted online.

+1 Anwar bhai. Well said indeed. Increased participation, development and promotion of the hobby - these are worthy goals, not monetary rewards.

The essence of the competition is trust - who can check whether someone gets their model made by a professional or other?

Please post.  There is not enough information to give you any kind of informed response.  There will be reviews of all entries at the end by multiple people, and decisions will be taken on the merits of each case.

Overall, in terms of guidelines, we want to see clean fresh builds.

RC India - Flying and racing with open minds !



In the 6th Sweepstakes we are including a small 'contest for non-powered flight' suggested and paid for by a member. The rules are simple:

1. The objective is to achieve a 1 minute duration flight.
2. Model must be unpowered, ie no engine, no motor, no edf, no rocket/jetex. However, rubber power is allowed.
3. Must be scratch built, ie no RTF, no ARF, no Kit. Start by capturing pictures of the material you are starting with, alongside a newspaper for verification.
4. No restriction on size or weight or materials used.
5. Flight may be performed outdoors or indoor.
6. Take off/launch and landing must be at about same level, ie, flight from a rooftop to ground not acceptable.
7. Our usual sweepstakes rules apply. Especially proof of build and continuous video from launch to landing.

This is aimed mainly at those new to the hobby and hence not yet having a radio set. However, a radio controlled model is eligible.

Remember it is not a competition against each other, rather an attempt to achieve a set goal.

There is a token prize of Rs 1000 worth of goods from LHS of your choice, for each of the first five successful entries received. That is Rs1000 each going to 5 different people (which also implies the same person cannot win twice!).


The main post is being updated with this information.

Sorry sir but I think that 1 min with a rubber band or something like that is highly improbable ... I was trying for an ornithopter but I don't know or just frame it like this ..I am not sure that it will fly for long

Don't wake a Tiger until you've factored the teeth



I remember about 45 years ago I built a Mercury model from a kit from Indias Hobby Centre. About 50~60" span, it was a rubber-powered sailplane. Flights of 10 minutes plus were not unusual if it caught a thermal! The rubber motor was basically to gain height.

One unique aspect was the prop. You carved out half a prop from a block of balsa, and the other side was a wire, on which you added lead weights for balance  Shocked
