  3. SCAT Annual



Hello Roger,
please inform the competition CO that I bring the test device for the Jouletest,  which we used on the EUROFLY end of October in Switzerland with me. All who wants to know there correct Joule amount can have a test. Importend to do that is, that the models are equipt as in the F1Q rules mentioned.
( The start switch of the modell must have a parallel connection to the start switch of the timer ) If a modell have this not, it is not conform with F1Q rules !!
I recomment at least, to make tests before and after a Fly Off to avoid bad conservations about the results, as we had on the EUROFLY 2021. Ian Kaynes was on both competitions there and is well informend about the problems.
With the test, we had no discussions this time End of Oktober 2022. Everybody was happy that all flights where correct !!
Thank you for your help and see you soon
Best Regards Dieter Paff
