Hi Vince, in that case, if the scale police is not you it must be Mr Cliff Evans.' He did it in the lobby with a candlestick in collusion with miss Grey'. I deduce this from checking the frequency and reliability of his posting when only he would make such a remark of an earlier post. I win give me the money Ter.

I have flown sustainers and hotter off slopes on many occasions. I currently own 3 gliders with motors on the front. Quick mental count says I’ve built and owned over a dozen.
Question was should they be allowed in scale events.
My view is it’s down to the person organising the event. What ever they choose to restrict their event too should be respected.
Organisers are few and far between. Typically they organise because they enjoy the day.
The other aspect of this thread is where does a sustainer stop and power begin?
Chris’s article is great and Chris’s attitude to sustainers is also very good. I can see no reason why anyone would complain about his actions . He launches and recovers when necessary, with a soft motor on a model that is flown in light conditions. He flies in an area where agreements are in place and he respects them.
