Well I tried my hand at pattern flying today, entered in Sportsman class, went alright for what I was flying, a 3D Foamie. There was only one other guy against me, but he was 2 years older and flying a T-28. I was just flying the foamie, and its hard to do pattern when your just floating in the wind! The first two rounds were pretty good, got a lot of applause lol. As soon as the wind picked up it was pretty bad.

We had 4 rounds today, and two tomorrow. At least I have a guaranteed place in second haha! I hope I get a medal or a certificate at least for my first pattern flying attempt!

EDIT: Won 2nd place in Sportsman class! Prizes were a silver medal and a F3A World Championships mug!!

Scores varied from 753, to 946, and my lowest score per manuevre was 0 for a Split S in 11mph wind. Highest score was 10!

Here are the scores for 2011

And heres a video.

It started off turning final to land, turning right aileron, and adding up elevator, when all of a sudden the plane shattered into about 7 different pieces. I couldn't tell if the wing broke off. I had no control. Next thing I know it's in the hazelnut trees. I tried finding it for about an hour by moving the controls. But my best guess is that the battery unplugged. Only thing I found was the canopy, completely intact. Its a complete write off. $250 gone. Oh well. RIP
