    Pilot registration for Aug 26 2016 UMS Class ALES competition

    UMS (Unusual Materials Sailplane) class is a scratch build sailplane with unusual materials (packing tape, saran wrap, cardboard, whatever) and likely sparebox pieces. No size limit. Three or four rounds will be flown in the ALES format. Pure fun, nothing serious here! Task time and launch height will be negociated by the pilots at the meeting.

    UMS class requirements:
    Wingspan : 1 to 4.0 meters
    Weight : no limitations
    Motorization: is not essential; electric, hand or bungee launches permitted
    Materials: the implementation must show at least one functional design element not usually found in modern RC sailplanes: be imaginative.
    Decoration: the sailplane must show some creative art decoration: be creative! Hey, why not ask a 5-year old for help? ;)

    It's time to build !
