What about maximum duration and maximum altitude ? . . . Winners get prizes !

Also, unless you are flying Competition RC gliders or competing in the "Craftsmanship" events ( Scale, PMC, etc. ), Competition is cheaper than Sport Flying . . . WHY ?

( 1 ) Because most Sport Flyers use Kits, which are much more expensive than scratch-built Competition models.

( 2 ) Kits, generally, LOSE against "purpose-built", "bare bones" Competition models, because they tend to be heavier and less aerodynamic .

In the pics below, which one do you think would win in "C Eggloft" ?
