Nitpicking? Please note the "huge" difference between the 2011 and 2012 F6B judging criteria
Excecution precision -> max. score = 10
Use of the full range of the flight envelope -> max. score = 2
Versatility -> maxc. score = 8
Synchronisation with music -> max. score = 14
Pleasing and continuous flow of figures -> max. score = 8
Contrasting periods -> max. score = 10
Overall artistic design
Flight schedule design & proper combination with music choice -> max. score = 8
Compared to the "Technique" (max. score = 20) and "Artistic Quality" (max. score = 32), "Overall artistic design" only adds a maximum of 8 to the score.
Pilots may focus more on F3P-AM, because these competitions are flown several times per year. How often do they get to fly in an F6B competition?
