i was present for the event "Tailspin" in Bits pilani
On the first day when i reached the venue i flew my plane just for testing and trimming before the competition started.At the time of landing the c-clip of my motor got loose and fell somewhere Cry Cry . After about 30 long minutes i found one spare in my kit Smiley.Now a new problem developed! Sad Angry the motor was not fitting exactly on my new mount  Cry. It took me another hour to fix it in place at last Wink Tongue Clap .I was capable of completing the challenge correctly and was called for the next round on the 2nd day! woohoo! Grin Clap Clap Drool Drool >Cheesy Cool Cheesy.
when i was sleeping at night Sleepy Sleepy Sleepy i was only thinking of the next round.
6:30 AM was the time in my watch when i reached the venue.To my surprise there was no one there except me my father and one of the organizers Head Scratching Huh?. the reporting time given was 6:30 sharp but except me everyone came late Grin Roll Eyes .Till the I practiced on the open field and also tried landing as precisely as I could.When 2 out of the selected 8 teams arrived i was confident enough to fly and complete the challenge.(for Round 2 there will be 3 bedsheets kept at different places on the ground. A camera recording a video will be securely attached to the aircraft and the team will have to fly over the three bedsheets such that an image of each is recorded in the video)When i was ready i realized that one of the connection of my XT60 to the ESC was lose and was coming out! Cry Cry Cry .I reacted immediately and took out my soldering iron and soldered the connector back to the ESC securely Bow >Cheesy Grin .I was the first one to fly in the 2nd round.The organizers attached a cellphone on my plane securely and i threw it in the air.My scores were based on the fllowing -

Landing Points (LP):

Distance from centre of landing zone                    Points

 

Less than 1m                                                                      100

1m to 3m                                                                              80

3m to 5m                                                                              60

5m to 7m                                                                              40

Safe landing outside landing zone                                       10

Crash landing                                                                        0

 Time Points (TP) = 240-T  (T is the time taken to complete the task in seconds)

 Video Points (VP) = N*25   (N is the number of bags covered in the video)

                      

                              TOTAL = TP + VP + LP

So accordingly i got 297 points-
TP= 240-53 =187
VP= 2*25 =50
LP= 60(landed safely inside the circle at 3.36m from the center mark)

all other flyers had difficulty in landing inside the circle except me and another guy who crashed his plane inside after flying for 142 seconds therefore didn't get any landing points.

at the end of the event i was declared the winner! Drool Clap Clap  Bow Grin Smiley
I was verrrrrry happppppy!!!!!!
my father was with me and was feeling very proud!
the most interesting part is that i was the youngest among all in the competition and all others were engineering students!
 I am feeling at the top of the world after this achievement.

I sincerely thank all fellow RCI members for helping me and specially medicineman1987 and R C for designing the wonderful plane- GLIDIATOR
now i can call it the winning plane of Quark 2011!

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS AND VERY WELL DONE!  Clap Clap Clap

The reason why you easily beat the Engineering guys is because you follow your heart and they follow theory. I know, I teach them. They know all about physics and aerodynamics and the related formulas,  but most of them can't connect an ESC to a motor, let alone fly a plane to save their lives. No offence meant to anybody present here, I'm just referring to the general / average junta that I meet at engineering colleges and IIT's.

Secondly,

"there was no one there except me my father

my father was with me and was feeling very proud!"


Now this is something you should be REALLY treasure! That sounds just like my Dad.

Give your Dad my best regards.

God bless!
