You can be sure i'll be there again.

The limitation to 20 AM pilots I can understand, but it worry's me. I was 9th both years, so i hope i'll be able to compete!

Hi all,
Don, thank you for your compliments. We really hope to see you again in 2013.
Jurgen, hmmm..., no idea regarding the number of nations or the number of pilots, registrations are not still open... May be less than the previous edition due to the F3P World Championship. Let see in november.....
Nando, regarding AM selection, I can't give you an answer, I think Loc will explain this really better than me .
We just want to manage the allocated time as much as we can, and try to satisfy as much pilots than we can. (believe me it's not so easy )

The IITOP 2013 teaser is here (HD is available):

Have a nice day!

Hi all,
Sorry for this very long silence.
It's time to give you some updates about IITOP 2013.
Registrations opening was November 5th, after only one day 80% of the slots were booked.... We didn't thought it could go so fast.
Finally we are waiting around 60 pilots from 12 countries. We will have a Chinese pilot for this edition.
Face to this, we decided to apply a rule for the aeromusical. It's more or less the rule recommended by the FAI code (I said more or less ). Let say, X best pilots from a category after X flights, will have access to AM. We removed AM for the F3P-C.

You will find behind the schema of the selection:


We know that this solution will not satisfy everybody, but we had to make choices and we decided to let the level making the choice.

Regarding the fun part, like previous year, we will make a pylon race. It seems that this year we will have a lot of participants to the races. We promise to make a better organization on this point. Plans and rules are still available here or cut in the Millenium modelisme shop.
Thanks to Andy to let us one more time use his drawings.

Let us wish you a merry Christmas!
Warm regards.
Gilles, Loc & Philippe

Hello,

Looks like a great event. I'm actually building my first f3p planes and learning to make some figures so a contest is not in my near future. Although as i'm from Belgium I would love to have a day to come and have a look at 'professionals' flying.

Are visitors welcome ? Is there a visitor fee ? Could you give any more information about that please ?

Thank you,

Bonne soire,

Maxime

Hi Maxime,
Of course you can come to see the contest. The hall will be open to the public for the 3 days.
There is NO entry fees for visitors. We are considering that it's not to the visitors to pay the contest, even if some people blown us the idea to the ears....
So, you are welcome when you want!
Kind regards.
Gilles, Loc & Philippe

Ladies and gentleman,
Happy new year with, let's hope a maximum of crazy flights!
Some words just to say that the IITOP2013 hall for Aerofly has been updated on the website.

Bars have been removed and decoration has been changed.

Regarding the contest by himself, we have now 61 pilots registered 5 are on the waiting list.

We are working hard to improve this edition with your helpful remarks, so we hope it will be a close to perfect IITOP!

Have a good night!
Kind regards.

Hi all,
Less than one month right now before the IITOP2013...
Please think to confirm or cancel your registration. It's very important for us (logistic, schedule,..) and for the pilots on the waiting list.
As soon as we will have the final number od participants, we will publish the flight schedule.
Below shots from the IITOP 2013 T-shirts.

This year we will have a stand of the Domaine du Planet CEMA and its shop. May be other sponsors will decide to make a stand....
See you soon!!!!!
Kind regards.
