ELECTRIC OLD TIMER

Texaco

Texaco task time is 10 minutes and battery capacity is determined by the model’s weight. Note that ballasting is permitted if you wish to fit a larger battery.

Duration

Duration rules have been altered.  7 min contest, 25 sec motor run, battery size based on wing area.

Height Limited

Model must be fitted with a limiter to cut power at 200m or 30 seconds, whichever comes first. There are no battery capacity rules but packs are limited to 4 cells.

Electric Vintage Glider

This event is open to all Vintage Gliders which were designed, kitted or published on or before 31st December 1956. Model must be fitted with a limiter to cut power at 200m or 30 seconds, whichever comes first. There are no battery capacity rules. 

You can access the Electric Old Timer rules via our “AEFA Rules Library” page.

Clarifications

Pilots can ballast models to any extent they wish (subject to not endangering the structural integrity of the model) and in Texaco events, they may increase battery capacity in accordance with the increased weight.

Competitors could fly as many flights as the pilot wished and submit the result of the last flight flown.
