Len Mount Trophy Eynsford 2014

The UK Len Mount trophy for scale helicopters was held at the Eynsford flying club on Sunday September 14th, 2014.

This was the 10th year of this annual event and as usual had good weather, although a little windy. Around 30 pilots were present with 14 models being entered for the 2 categories - B class for up to 50 size helicopters and A class for those larger.

Prizes are awarded to the first 3 places in each category based on appearance (cockpit detail, workmanship and overall appearance) and flight. Other than that there are no rules, making the competition a relaxed affair. There is also a large trophy presented to the winner of the A class, which for this year was brand new, as the old one was looking a bit 'tired'.

 

The event was won by Alan Underdown (for the 3rd year running) with his Bell 47G. What makes this model so impressive is the wide crop spraying unit that gives it a real presence in the air, which is ably backed up by Alan's flying skills that makes the model look so realistic.
