The wind today is between 17-18 m/s and gust up to 22 m/s. Despite some occational rain. It's a great day for F3F comp.

Mr. O #10 flew his Needle 100" Full DS version for the first 5 rounds. In Round 6, he gained enough altitude while pumping, came down really really fast and made a thunderous first turn. Just before reaching his 2nd turn, he pull up and the fuselage broke from the upper side of the joiner. The wings float back up to the slope intact without even a scratch. I guess the fuselage is simply not strong enough for this kind of speed. He flew his needle 100" DSL version afterwards. Flying weight for both is around 3.2 kg.

Models went sub-30 include Needle 100" Full DS, Needle 100" DSL, Stinger, Pace 2.5M.

Cheers, Michael

AMAZING times.

小黑 is to be commended. A whole day of sub 30 second runs MUST be a record.

Congratulations
