@prabal276,
The challenge CLOSED AT MIDNIGHT ON SUNDAY, 1st July with NO SUCCESS.
Extended to midnight 15th July only for
1. Mehul Anand, in case winning it will help him in his MIT entrance bid, as per his dreams...
2. Taksh, so that he can show that he has the necessary DUM to support his Badi Badi Baatein...

In your case, expect a present from me, and maybe from Glidiator too...

The fact remains that so far,
NO MEMBER HAS DEMONSTRATED THE ABILITY TO ACHIEVE A 30 SEC HAND LAUNCH FLIGHT!

I guess the 1 minute challenge was a mistake on my part.

I think that some of the responders on this thread, who clearly have the skill, may have backed off due to the word ‘Challenge ‘

Perhaps a ‘One minute fly off’ would have been a better topic.

@pranavk09,
Break the centre joint and increase dihedral. (Say 15degrees each side)
I’m including you in the deadline extention to 15th July midnight

So participants for 15 July extension are
Mehul anand
Taksh
Prabal
Pranav

Come on guys.
Show us a 30 sec flight
Remember that 1 min achieved in UK/ US 50 years ago!

I’d be glad to include any other late comers.

All those motivated (provoked?) by my posts, your builds/flights eagerly awaited...

Since only 3 days left (finally closes midnight Sunday 15th), let me offer a few small last minute incentives for the first to achieve these HLG goals:
1. One minute Rs 5000
2. 30 seconds Rs 2000
3. 20 seconds Rs 1000
4. 10 seconds Rs 500

Glidiator may possibly add a gift...

Please do not misunderstand me.
I’m a pensioner. Just doing what I can afford to encourage entry level aeromodelling.
(I suspect my efforts may be totally irrelevant)

Do try, irrespective of what youthink of my efforts...
Regards

Edit:
As an afterthought, I will accept a ‘Double or Quit’ from any of the winners...

Confusing...

Did anything?
Or just finding faults in others?

Glidiator has offered to match my prize money offer.
So a 1 minute HLG flight can win you 10,000!

You have 50 hours left to become famous!
You can see my new thread ‘1st Chuck’ for inspiration...

Human mind is like a parachute, works when open



Hi all,

Iyer Sir,

Your 1 minute challenge is quite interesting and i too would have taken part but due to work relocation could not.

I have built quite a no of chuck gliders and from experience can say that a white wing paper plane or a Zing wing folding glider can be best option. Although balsa can also do but will need lot of experience with sanding the wings to perfect aerofoil for shape for max glide.

I have seen white wings paper plane and the Zing wing do maximum glide with catapult ofcourse.
