2022 Annual Challenge

This year the challenge is to build and fly a Rocket Glider, the winner achieving the longest flight duration from take-off to touch down.

The rules are simple:

  • Recovery must be by stable, gliding flight supported by aerodynamic lifting surfaces which sustain it against gravity.
  • Maximum motor size C.
  • Rocket glider may not jettison any part during flight (what goes up must come gliding back)
  • More than one model may be flown multiple times, subject to time constraints on the day.
  • Winner will be awarded the FOG Annual Challenge Trophy.
  • There will be a secondary prize awarded to the model that in the view of the assembled crowd, is the best design, finish, style etc.

  • Rocket may not separate any piece during flight.
  • More than one model may be flown multiple times, subject to time constraints on the day.
  • The longest flight duration from take-off to touch down, winner takes all eggs.
