THE outstanding thing about this years Wakefield Trophy Contest is the fact that Aarnc Ellila of Finland has succeeded in winning the trophy for the second year in succession thus equalling the record set up by j . Erhardt of the United States of America in 1930 and 1931.
The contest this year was unique in that the flying took place between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. for the first two rounds and from 5 a.m. to 6.30 a.m. for the third round. This was of course made possible by the daylight conditions existing in Finland during the summer months and it ensured that the results were a true measure of the capabilities of the machines since no thermals existed.
Ellilas win will undoubtedly raise considerable argument concerning the technical aspect of rubber model design and it is safe to say that many an aero- modeller will now give serious consideration to the tandem motor arrangement which he used in both of his winning models.
The results indicate that we have by no means reached stagnation in Wakefield model design and it seems that well conceived departures from the orthodox may yet reap dividends. The fact that E. W. Evanss model which gained second place featured a new con ception in feathering propellers strengthens this belief.
Sixteen nations were represented at this event and this proves without doubt that the Wakefield Trophy Contest is still the most popular international model aircraft contest.
