After a four years pause of Indoor competitions in Belgium, an FAI F6B competition was announced on short notice - basically to find potential pilots for the World Artistic Games which are supposed to take place in China at the end of this year.

There was a lot of time available, as only 13 of 15 pilots showed up. Normally, the event would have been cancelled at this low number of participants.

Instead of running a practise round for the judges to familiarize themselves with the wide range of various performances, there was only one calibration flight.

The starting order was already pre-determined and unfortunately all consequent rounds where based on the scores achieved. The lowest scoring pilot starts first etc. With this system, there are only very little or slow movements in the ranking, unless there is a technical problem or a crash (very unlikely at this level of competiton and a hall of this size without obstacles).

Therefore I will leave it up to the viewer to do his (or her) own judgement of the flights.

Last flights of the finalists:
