Winter Build Contest

Delaware RC will be sponsoring a Building Contest that should be fun for all ages and take many of us back to our roots for the love of model aviation.

We are having a Rubber Powered Free Flight Build and fly contest for anyone who is interested.

There will be two categories:

  • Youth/Novice: these builder/fliers will compete using the Delta Dart planes available from AMA. The club will be buying a bulk quantity of these for you to purchase for your new builders and fliers. These simple to build kits would make great gifts for the holidays.
  • Experienced: this includes all levels of builders and fliers. For this category you will provide your own kit. We are suggesting a Guillows Series 300,500 or 900 kits or an equivalent model from another manufacturer.

For this build there are a few simple rules:

Build the Kit:

  • Without modification to the airfoil or airframe
  • Builds to plans
  • Use all components that are supplied

The contest will have two judging Criteria

  • Aesthetics of the build
  • Flight time

These two will be factored together to a numeric score.

Thee will be prizes for the winners of each category.

We will be judging and flying on April 10th for everyone who is entered in the contest.

For information and to by the Delta Dars please contact Ron Becker at or 302-598-2097. Registration is simple! Just drop a text or email to Ron Becker with the title "Winter Build 2020 – I’m in."
