F5J at the Ranch

This contest replaces the 2021 F5J Team Selects contest originally scheduled at this time but has since been postponed to 2022. Please subscribe to our RCG discussion thread .

CD: Sandy Smith

Contest Format
We will adhere to F5J USA tour rules. All F5J launch heights must be verified on the Altis screen by the timer at the conclusion of each flight.
We will have NO FLYOFFS. Instead, we will have 10 minute target times on Saturday and 15 minute targets on Sunday. This is in alignment to the Team Selects format and is approved for the F5J USA Tour.

Approved F5J altimeter list
