Nothing in those sequences is terribly hard to fly.. but like anything else is very difficult to fly to the level of this competition. The biggest mistake people make early on in flying F3P in my opinion is not flying slow enough.

Have you ever tried to fly the F3P-A program in hall with a ceiling of approx. 25ft in an area of approx. 40mx20m? Just flying slow doesn't do the trick.

My local site is even smaller than that Jurgen, 18' high and 85' by 50'. And no, I can't even begin to fly the F3A sequence there. Maybe some day I will be able to do so but not yet.

Jurgen,

I watched your video of Martin from the Mühlheim competition, and I just have to say I'm captivated! F3P is an amazing event. Can't wait to see your videos from the Championship! Keep up the good work; you are starting a fire in the US!

I'm coming to Germany this summer (wife is German). We'll be in the Frankfurt area. Can you recommend a good hobby shop in the area? I'd like to pick up some airframes.

Hi Jon,

I might not find a much time during the championship than during the qualifying events (but we will have a pro there who will make a DVD).

What kind of airframes you are looking for? Just send me a PM.

update on the competition after 2 rounds

F3P
1st place Martin Müller
2nd place Derk van der Vecht
3rd place Kay
4th place Bert van der Vecht

Aeromusicals still to be flown today. and one round for the F3P. In F3P it the champion is already known as also the number 2. For place 3 it will be very close between 3 pilots.

The earomusicals promise to be a very good competition and will have very good shows in it.
