Dedicated to those that build and fly wood R/C Sailplanes
Bringing back the original Wood Crafters is exciting for me. I enjoy flying with fellow Woody pilots and look forward to making new friends. This is a gathering of people with common interests, a low key event meant to put smiles on peoples faces. It is an event only for those that enjoy building and flying wood rc sailplanes, those that enjoy the feeling of accomplishment by creating things with their own hands. Nothing looks better high in the sky than your creation, circling ever higher in a thermal. An event for those that can.
The Wood Crafter rules posted on the Wood Crafters front page in my web site are strictly enforced. http://www.skybench.com/woodcraft/index.html
Nov. 25, 2015, I have created the Entry Form (PDF) that also serves as the list of events. Likely, more events will be added, but the entry fee will stay the same. The $20 fee covers both days and you can fly any or all of the events. We will have a food vender at the field for lunch. Trophies for 1st Place will be awarded
Dec. 4, 2015. Winch - Hi Start launch contests for 106 inch or less wing span and unlimited wing span have been added to the Entry Form (PDF). Landings will be in or out scoring using LSF 1 and LSF 2 landing circles. 10 minute duration, using 45 minute launch windows per round ( no call up ). Fly both size class events.
Mini Hi Start contest for 1.5M (60 inch ) wing span also added to the
Group Man on Man launching from Sky Bench Hi-Starts. It's a Blast from the Past..
Wood Crafters #8 will be on site #3, click here for site map. I encourage you to fly in the Scale Aero Tow Fun Fly, it is a great opportunity. I would love to have a one of a kind event, but since it has been a long time since the previous Wood Crafters, I don't know what design to pick, need your input.
Notice .. Only one pilot per MHZ freq. Allowed.
