Wakefield Cup anniversary

The first competition for the oldest trophy in international aeromodelling, the Wakefield Cup, was held on September 29 1928. September 2008 thus marks the 80th anniversary of this trophy for free flight rubber powered aircraft, which is now awarded at World Championships for category F1B.

September 2008; F2B Judging/Scoring Committee formed

Since the revised set of rules for the F2B category was set in force in 2006, a level of acceptance and reliability has been reached. A period of calm and stability is now of great importance for competitors and organisers.

While current practices in this area have served us well in the past, further efforts must be undertaken to ensure that the future implementation of both judging and scoring complies with the precepts of equality, fairness and accuracy with respect to both the individual competitor, from competitor to competitor within a given competition and to the human factors governing the physical act of judging.
