HKRCSS F3F 聯賽 - 賽 例與比賽安排

(修 訂4.0 / 2014年2月)

1, 聯賽時間表

1.1, 賽程
香港F3F聯賽乃年度聯賽,每年一月開始至十二月,最多賽十二場;每年聯賽開始前先公告該年之比賽日 期 作二星期的咨詢,日期一旦確定將不會更改,除非是後來發現與國際F3F賽事(註一)撞期,則受影響的比賽的新日期會盡快訂出再作咨詢(註二)。

1.2, 取消比賽
因天氣惡劣,比賽將取消,被取消或未完成的比賽將不作重賽,CD擁有取消賽事的唯一決定權。
決定是否取消比賽時可以參考:
a, 取消比賽係以當天狀況能否支持四場或以上比賽而決定,有必要可以延遲開賽,可能情況下請盡早公告當天計劃,使各賽員可有準備。
b, 遇到難以決定的天氣狀況,請盡量找有經驗的飛友協助。

1.3, 未完成比賽
比賽日若不能成功完成四輪或以上的比賽,則該場比賽為未完成,未完成比賽不會另日再續,而當中所得的成績亦將不獲計算,但未完成比賽所得的個人最佳時間和 場地最佳時間仍會被記錄。


2, 聯賽成績

2.1, 聯賽計分方法
聯賽應舉行最少一場和最多十二場,按能成功舉行的場數,每位賽員可扣減若干場他成績最差的比賽:

成功舉行的場數 扣減場數
1-3 0
4-6 1
7-9 2
10-12 3


成 功舉行的比賽按以上方法扣減後所得的績分總和將用來計算排 名,每位賽員一場比賽的績分是他在該場所得的績分除以該場比賽中最好的績分再乘以一千,即類似 F3F的計分方法。

2.2. 參加國際F3F賽事
聯賽成績將會用來決定機手參加國際F3F賽事(註一)的資格,對於每一個別的國際F3F賽事,該賽事報名截止日期前 的六場成功舉行的比賽的績分將用作決定參賽資格,(考慮參賽準備需時,聯賽成績會計至國際賽報名截止前幾個月,因應各國際賽情況作個別考慮,會盡早作出公 佈。) 該六場比賽中,每一賽員最高分的五場會用來作為他的個人成績,成績最好的賽員擁有該賽事的參賽資格,若他放棄資格,則成績隨後的可補上。

每一國際F3F賽事的參賽資格是互相獨立的,即一賽員若擁有一國際賽事的參賽資格,並不會使他自動失去其他國際賽事的參賽資格。

所有附合參賽資格的機手必須是本地機手並持有香港身份證。


3, 比賽規則

3.1, FAI賽例
比賽按FAI公佈之F3F賽例進行,請參看FAI F3F賽例。

3.2, 本地賽例
3.2.1, 起飛失敗
無論是因為賽員還是擲機手出錯引至起飛失敗,都會判零分。

3.2.2, 降落失敗
降落失敗乃指飛機降落於指定降落區之外,除非在裁判確認下,因賽員所不能避免的原因而不可能在降落區內降落、或在降落區內降落會導致危險,降落失敗會被判 零分(DNF)。除非落在降落區外,飛機於降落時撞毀不列作降落失敗。

3.2.3, 重飛程序
不容許空中重飛,賽員需把飛機正常降落後按主審(CD)的指示進行重飛。如果降落失敗,則重飛將會被取消,並判零分(DNF)。

3.2.4, 中止比賽
如果比賽不能繼續、又或因安全理由,在裁判確認下主審在計時賽程完成前便可隨時中止比賽。如中止比賽的原因乃賽員所不能避免的,則他可以重飛,否則零分 (DNF)。

一些例子,但並不限於:
a, 風況太差明顯不能繼續飛行。
b, 飛行空域有障礙、又或飛機損毀而可能會導致危險。
c, 計時有誤以至必須重飛。

3.4.5, 宣佈重飛
如果可以重飛(因風況或誤判,請參閱 FAI sporting code, Section 4, Volume 3, 5.8.5),主審只會於賽員完成計時後才會告知他可以選擇重飛,賽員需即時決定是否選擇重飛,除非賽員選擇不作重飛並接受剛才的成績,否則主審是不會告 訴他剛才的成績的。
如果重飛的原因會導致對成績有利,則該成績會被取消,賽員必須重飛。(通常此等情況下主審可不待計時完成便中止比賽。)

一些例子,但並不限於:
a, 風力太弱 - 賽員可以選擇重飛與否。
b, 風力太強 - 必須重飛。
c, 衝線遲按信號 - 賽員可以選擇重飛與否。
d, 衝線早按信號 - 必須重飛。


4, 賽事安排

4.1, 賽事執行團隊
賽事執行團隊、成員包括一名CD(主審)、一名副CD(副審)和一至二名Helper(工作人員)、負責賽事的安排與執行。每次比賽的執行團隊由賽員輪擔 當, 並於每年聯賽開始前公佈;所有比賽設備的安裝、賽事管理、以及時間記錄只可由執行團隊負責;執行團隊須於法定開賽時間半小時前底達賽場,以便整理場地、安 裝旗桿、鋪設電線、測試計時設備等。主審和副審亦可參賽,當主審比賽時,則由副審執行其職務,反之亦然。只有主審和副審有權對賽事進行判決與宣告判罰。主 審和副審不須擔任線審的工作,而線審輪換安排是根據年前訂立之有效方法執行。賽事其間,助手、旁觀者或其他賽員須保持安靜以免影響比賽中的賽員,主審有權 把屢勸不聽的人仕驅趕或取消其參賽資格。

4.2, 比賽時間
法定開賽時間為早上八時,但主審可因應場地和天氣作出更改;參賽者若遲到須待正進行中的一輪比賽完成方後可加入。最後一輪比賽一般為下午四時半時仍在進行 中的比賽,但亦可能會因應場地、風況和參賽人數作出更改,主審應於開賽前宣告最後一輪比賽的時間。

4.3, 參賽費
香港遙控滑翔飛行協會(HKRCSS) 會員每場比賽參賽費為港幣四十圓,非會員為港幣六十圓。以往從未參加聯賽的參賽者首場比賽免費。參賽費每年由HKRCSS按聯賽平均參賽人數以收支平衡為 目標作出檢討。

4.4, 獎項
4.4.1, 每月比賽之獎牌
每月比賽之冠、亞、季軍和最佳時間會獲頒一面獎牌,該日賽事之主審須負責準備好獎牌並帶往賽場。獎牌的開支應不多於該日賽事總參賽費的一半,餘額將用作年 終總獎項和設備維護。

4.4.2, 聯賽年終總獎
聯賽年終總獎為製作精美的獎座、獎牌或獎狀,頒與聯賽個人一至八名和團體一至三名、以及最佳時間。每一曾參加聯賽的賽員亦會獲授與一銘謝狀。

為推廣F3F運動,特設立一"新人獎"頒與能符合以下要求的新賽員:i, 之前的聯賽每年的參與率少於一半成功舉行的比賽、ii, 總平均分九百分或以上、 iii, 新人中排名最高。



附 註
1,〝國際F3F賽事〞係指有限制每一國家參賽人數的F3F賽事,包括颱風賽、維京賽和FAI F3F 世界冠軍賽 。
2, 由於各國際F3F賽事的不同性質、如比賽日數以及旅程和預備時間等,我們傾向不限定選新日子的方法以增加彈性;然而,我們會盡量以不影響聯賽賽員為選新的 日子依據,而我們亦相信賽員有足夠時間(通常超過半年)按新日子作出預備。





FAI F3F Rules 2014 Edition

FAI Sporting Code
Section 4 Ė Aeromodelling
Volume F3
Radio Control Soaring Model Aircraft
2014 Edition

5.8 CLASS F3F - RADIO CONTROL SLOPE SOARING

5.8.1. Definition: This contest is a speed event for radio controlled slope gliders. A minimum of four rounds must be flown. The organiser shall run as many rounds as the conditions and time permits.

5.8.2. Characteristics of Radio Controlled Slope Gliders

Maximum surface area ..................................... 150 dm2
Maximum flying mass . ....................................... 5 kg
Loading .............................................................. less than 75 g/dm2

Minimum radius of fuselage nose 7.5 mm in all orientations (see template below).



The radio shall be able to operate simultaneously with other equipment at the normally usedspacing in the allocated R/C bands (i.e. 35 MHz : 10 kHz).

The competitor may use three models in the contest. The competitor may combine the parts of the models between the rounds provided the resulting model used for flight conforms to the rules and that the parts have been checked before the start of the contest. Addition of ballast (which must be located internally in the model) and/or change of angles of setting are allowed. Variation of geometry or area is allowed only if it is actuated at distance by radio control.

Any technological device used to aid in supplying data of the airís condition or direct feedback of the modelís flight status is prohibited during the flight. These devices include any transmission or receiving devices not used to directly control the model aircraft (telephones, walkie-talkies, telemetry of airspeed and altitude etc), temperature detecting devices (thermal imaging cameras, thermometers etc), optical aids (such as binoculars, telescopes etc), and distance/altitude measuring devices (GPS, laser range finders etc). Telemetry of signal strength at the aircraft receiver and state of the receiver battery is permitted. Use of corrective eyeglasses and sunglasses are permitted. If an infringement of this rule occurs, the pilot will be disqualified from the contest.

5.8.3. Competitor and Helpers: The competitor must operate his radio equipment personally. Each competitor is permitted one helper. The helper is only to assist and advise the competitor until the model is passing Base A for the first time and after the timed flight is completed.

5.8.4. Definition of an Attempt: There is an attempt when the model has left the hands of the competitor or his helper.

5.8.5. Number of Attempts: The competitor has one attempt on each flight. An attempt can be repeated if:
  1. the launching attempt is impeded, hindered or aborted by circumstances beyond the control of the competitor, duly witnessed by the official judges;
  2. his model collides with another model in flight or other impediment and the competitor is not to blame on that account;
  3. the flight was not judged by the fault of the judges.
  4. the model (ie the fuselage nose) fails to pass above a horizontal plane, level with thestarting area, within five seconds of exiting the course, due to circumstances beyond thecontrol of the competitor, duly witnessed by the official judges.
The re-flight shall happen as soon as possible considering the local conditions and the radio frequencies. If possible, the model aircraft can stay airborne and has to be brought to launching height, launching speed and launching position before the new 30 second period is started by the judge.

5.8.6. Cancellation of a Flight: A flight is official when an attempt is carried out, whatever result is obtained.

A flight is official but gets a zero score if:
  1. the competitor used a model not conforming to FAI rules;
  2. the model loses any part while airborne;
  3. the helper advises the competitor during the timed flight;
  4. the model is controlled by anyone other than the competitor;
  5. the flight is not carried through;
  6. the model lands outside the assigned landing area;
  7. the model is not launched within 30 seconds from the moment the starting order is given.
  8. any part of the model aircraft fails to pass above a horizontal plane, level with the starting area, within five seconds of exiting the course.
5.8.7. Organisation of Starts: The flights are to be performed round by round. The starting order is settled by draw in accordance with the radio frequencies used.

The competitor is entitled to three minutes of preparation time from the moment he is called to the ready box. After the three minutes has elapsed, the starter may give the order to start. After the starter has given the order to start, the competitor or his helper is to launch the model within 30 seconds. The competitor or his helper is to launch the model by hand from the starting area indicated by the organiser.

If possible, the starting area, including the audio system, shall be situated in the middle of the course (equal distance from Base A and Base B).

The time from launch to the moment the model enters the speed course must not exceed thirty seconds.

If the model has not entered the speed course (i.e. first crossing of Base A in the direction of Base B) within the thirty seconds, the flight time will commence the moment the thirty seconds expires. If the model has not entered the speed course within the thirty seconds, this is to be announced bythe judges.

5.8.8. The Flying Task: The flying task is to fly 10 legs on a closed speed course of 100 metres in the shortest possible time from the moment the model first crosses Base A in the direction of Base B. If some irremovable obstacles do not allow 100 metres the course may be shorter but not less then 80 metres. This exception does not apply for world or continental championships.

5.8.9. The Speed Course: The speed course is laid out along the edge of the slope and is marked at both ends with two clearly visible flags. The organiser must ensure that the two turning planes are mutually parallel and perpendicular to the slope.

Depending on the circumstances, the two planes are marked respectively Base A and Base B.

Base A is the official starting plane. At Base A and Base B, an Official announces the passing of the model (ie any part of the model aircraft) with a sound signal when the model is flying out of the speed course. Furthermore, in the case of Base A, a signal announces the first time the model is crossing Base A in the direction of Base B.

5.8.10. Safety: The organiser must clearly mark a safety line representing a vertical plane which separates the speed course from the area where judges, other officials, competitors and spectators stay. Crossing the safety line by any part of the model aircraft during the measured flight will be penalised by 100 points subtracted from the sum after conversion, the penalty not being discarded with the result of the round. The organiser must appoint one judge to observe, using an optical sighting device, any crossing of the safety line.

5.8.11. Judging: The flights are judged by two judges who do not have to be the same for all competitors.

The judges' task is to control that the flights are performed according to the rules, to be time keepers and to ensure that the right distance is flown.

5.8.12. Scoring: The result of the flight is stated as the time in seconds and hundredths of seconds obtained by each competitor. For the purpose of calculating the result of the round, the competitor's result is converted this way:

1000 x Pw/P

where Pw is the best result in the round and P is the competitorís result

5.8.13. Classification: The sum of the competitor's round scores will determine his position in the final classification. If more than three rounds were flown the lowest round score of each competitor will be discarded and the others added to obtain the final score which will determine his position in the final classification. If more than fourteen rounds were flown, the two lowest round scores will be discarded.

To avoid ties in the classification concerning the five best scores, "classification rounds" are flown until the ties are broken. If this is not possible, the result of the discarded round will determine each competitor's position in the final classification.

5.8.14. Organisation of the Contest: The competition must be held at a site which is suitable for slope soaring.

When marking the starting and landing areas and the turning planes, the organiser must take into
account the configuration of the terrain and the wind direction.

5.8.15. Changes: Any changes in the flight and landing areas may be made only between flight rounds.

5.8.16. Interruptions: A round in progress must temporarily be interrupted if:-
  1. the wind speed constantly is below 3 m/sec or more than 25 m/sec.
  2. the direction of the wind constantly deviates more than 45O from a line perpendicular to the main direction of the speed course.
If these conditions arise during the flight the competitor is entitled to a re-flight.

A round in progress is to be cancelled if:
  1. the interruption lasts more than thirty minutes;
  2. fewer than 50% of the competitors have been able to perform the task caused by marginal conditions. Without the condition "constantly" (i.e. 20 seconds) have been met and thus caused re-flights.
