10th June 2007 Pillerton Hersey League Competiton

The comp was a great success, with 13 entrants battling it out over 7 rounds of excellent weather. BEFA and 200W/Kg old hands were roundly beaten by newcomer but BARCS veteran Bruce Baker, flying a distinctly low tech model. Mick Barnet came second, despite not winning a round, to prove that consistency is paramount. I flew my Super AVA to third place, proving big is not always best! A downloadable zipped Excel results spreadsheet is in the forum. Nice photos by Mike Proctor.
