Friday F3P unknown contest

A few people asked me to post this. I copied it from Mark Jorgensen's post off of FG. For those interested.

This was an indoor unknown pattern contest that we flew in on Friday morning at the E-Fest facility. 2 unknows were handed out 2 hours prior to flight time and there were three rounds total flown.

I really hope the precision flying catches on more here in the USA. The freestyle is great but I've always been more into the precision stuff.

Fully agreed. I really enjoy it. Theres always room for more practice for improvment (a lot of room in my case). I also enjoy the building/trimming aspect of learning precision flying. You learn what does what and how, just with expiermenting and flying. Specifically with the indoor models. Being foam, the amount of stuff to try is endless.

Congrats all! I had a blast on Friday. That 6 of 4... hehe that was one of the funniest things to watch.

Out of curiosity... how did JAS place? I could have sworn that since he wasnt present for the last round, all of his scores were to be thrown out...

We flew three rounds and kept the best two out of the three. So the round that he opted out of was just thrown out.

By my understanding all of our round 2 (sequence 2) scores were kept, and the lower scores between rounds 1 and 3 (sequence 1) were to be dropped. Could have sworn that all of JAS's scores were to be thrown out because he wasnt there to judge the last round, not just because he didnt fly in that round (which would just be a throw-away). Several other guys heard the same thing.

Did we all hear incorrectly?

Ask Jorgensen to know for sure.

Hi Guys,

How did the judging go? I would like to hear some feedback on the judging format used. FWIW, the IMAC Southeast put on incredibly successful judge instructor/certification weekend seminar a couple weeks ago and it was a very unifying experience.
Thanks,
Jim
