This years 2012 Park Flying Freestyle Contest (PFFC) is officially announced.

PRIZES

Grand prize is your choice of 40" 9mm DW Foamies 3D plane. These are IMHO the best flying foamies on the market. These foamies fly like giant scale planes and are great at 3D and pattern.

New twist this year on prizes. The top 50% of entries will go into a drawing for the top prize. Other prizes will be randomly drawn from all entries.

Another new twist is allowing the use of cuts Two cuts are allowed in the video. This is to allow higher quality of performance. No more ''man, it was perfect until the last 30 seconds....." just edit out the bad flying lol.

JUDGING CRITERIA
40% Choreography, timing and execution to music
20% Precision and difficulty of program
20% Use of airspace and placement of manuevers

I'm enjoying putting a freestyle together. It's fun seeing the improvement from year to year.

Can we get a head count on who's entering?

Note: because of the trend for bigger and bigger electric models, the wing span limit has been increased to 61".

If other tasks, weather and equipment permit, I'm also considering taking part in the event.
Thanks to all who are going to make it happen!
