Amazing footage; thanks for sharing.
The split-s turns seemed to be the way to go as the weather picked-up.

Not a timed F3F run, but interesting to see my PII not coping with 16m/s wind and 2kgs of ballast.

To be honest , it was not the Pred or the winds fault ,
I thought that was going very well , you was getting the EM turns very sweet , but you came into compression on the edge of the lip , and hit the cliff . i would put that 1 down to unlucky m8.
So i think it coped fine with the windspeed and ballast ,
Didnt cope to well with the touch and go though !! .

thanks for sharing

I can assure with 100% accuracy that the plane did not hit the cliff at the time of the compression, other local slopers looking at this video will also confirm that.

But no doubt, the plane hit the cliff 0,5 second later hard, please note the red impact zone in the rock, that was the PII leaving it's last signature before entering to the everlasting slopes, though the remains will be donated as life extending parts to other models in desperate need for some missing carbon platings.....

I am sorry for your loss mate ,
Ive slowed the video , and at 2 mins 37.5 seconds it gets an awful compression bump , thats because of how close you was to the cliff edge ,it gave you knowhere to go . Or no time to do anything about it.
Im honestly not saying you was at fault , thats how i would have flown , but it looked like a unlucky situation , and i think nothing would have survived an unlucky bump like that .
could have been a very expensive plane , and i think exactly the same would happen

Still gutted for you ,

Bob

Ok here is 3 Vids, from the same Welsh Open,
2 are Edited and Titled, the last is throw together with the bits left over .
20 min worth of F3F clowning and fast times, Stefan Bertschi does a stunning 36.xx and the weather made the final day a wash out , with only 1 round scoring .
