Question
Where do you find out what F3X flying is all about?

The title says it all. I'm trying to find out what F3X task flying is. I've been a powered R/C flyer for nearly 30 years. Last season, I learned about F3K and have a couple planes. Now, I'm interested in finding about the other disciplines of glider flying, particularly the task driven type of events.

Thanks in Advance.

Mike

Radian put together a really good video of the 2011 F3J USA Team Selection event last October at the IRKS field in Cocoa, Florida:

F3J USA Team Selection 2011 (8 min 2 sec)

The difference between this and normal F3J contests was that the planes weren't towed up by two-man teams. For various reasons, they used F3B winches instead.
