2013 COUPE EUROPA
The 2013 Coupe Europa at Middle Wallop, run by Croydon & DMAC, saw 36 people competing in the Vintage and F1G free-flight rubber events. The weather did its best to cooperate, though turbulence from upwind trees caused problems for many flyers, including the 2012 winner Peter Brown. Peter uses a chart recorder radio-linked to an upwind anemometer and thermistor; the plots on the chart show the small variations in wind speed and temperature that show the approach of a thermal.
F1G for the Aeromodeller Trophy 22 flew
1. Peter Hall 577
Vintage Coupe d’Hiver for the AAA Cup 14 flew
1. Chris Redrup Etienvre 326
