The Wessex Aeromodellers League is designed to provide LOW-COST local competition for club modellers and to dovetail with normal club sport flying at club flying fields.
Wessex Low-Cost 600RES electric thermal league

The LOW-COST 600RES restricted class of electric thermal gliders has been developed since the turn of the century and has become a close run, evenly matched popular thermal competition. It is run on a ROUND ROBIN basis, a popular and simple method of enjoying a thermal soaring competition from flat field sites. Most importantly it is designed to dovetail with normal club sport flying. A complete competitive model typically costs as little as £200.

STOP PRESS: I have a spare set of carbon fibre spars for the Apollo wing.

From April to September there is also an invitation monthly postal event.

Latest results now available.
