I believe that it is just a crowd pleaser event. It says "open to all" so I am assuming that the field is open for anyone 3D jamming only. Just bring a 3D plane and fly basicly!

Yeah, as much as 3DHS planes are great, some of the people on thier thread are not as nice as some others... Unless you are well known on the thread, you are pretty much ignored.

It will be a pilots choice. Anyone can enter. Friday and maybe Saturday afternoon.

I've been curious about this as well. I would assume that this is probably still in the planning stages and that's why no one really knows much about it yet. It sounds like big fun!

Andy and Michael -

you're asking questions about things that are still in formation, and Andy, I had absolutely no clue what you were asking, and I'm sure nobody else did either. So, let's try this again:

Myself, from 3DHobbyShop, and Chris Hinson, from ExtremeFlightRC, together with Jeff Meyers, director of SEFF, are going to try something new this year, an informal 3D contest on the 3D flightline late in the week. Chris, Jeff, and myself are wrapping up details and prizes and we'll post them here ASAP.

I think what everybody's really wondering is what a "smackdown" really is in general terms. Is it a "lowest KE pass" or "lowest blender recovery" or what? Is it kinda like a game of HORSE in basketball where you try to one-up the next guy?

No matter what the answer is, I'm sure it will be entertaining. And I'll be right there watching...hooting and hollering LOWER with the rest of 'em!

Well, "smackdown" is a word the organizers are using to describe this contest.

What we're planning (and, like I said, we're not finished yet) is a simple and informal 3D contest that will allow lots of people to see how skilled some of the 3d aerobatic pilots who come to SEFF every year are. We still have some work to do before posting all details and we have to coordinate closely with the event staff and then we'll post all the info.

ALSO, Jeff and the SEFF staff are gung-ho about showcasing some great aerobatic flying this year, so there will probably be another event announcement coming up soon, separate from the 3D event info. Again, these are events that need some finishing work done to them before all details are announced.

I'll chime in here, Ben and I just began discussing this a few weeks ago and ran it by Jeff Meyers and he gave us the thumbs up. Still some details to work out and we'll let everyone know as soon as it is finalized.
Basically it was our idea to have a very informal 3D contest on Thursday afternoon, crowd judged, no music, just all out "tail draggin' wing tip scrapin' show us what ya got" kind of thing that won't shut the flight line down for too long and will be a lot of fun to watch.
