2012 contest season random pictures and thoughts


Due to work, I coud not go to many contest. Thus I picked some of the bigger shows, Gator F3B, the IHLGF and the Bruce and I am glad I went there.

The Gator F3B was great, we flew up to 9 rounds and I was happy with my speed (I averaged around 15.xs) and distance performance. I finished third, but one week later, I was downgraded to 5th place due to a rule change in 2012.


IHLGF was very well attended, with Joe Wurts, Mike Stern, George Morris and myself 4 guys from the worlds fly off were present. I did not do well in turnaround tasks, because I arrived late Friday night and was exhausted. I was very happy with my Fly Off performance where I finished third. Within 4 hours, I was then again downgraded to 5th place due to scoring errors.

The Bruce was crazy hot and a fun contest. I finished again 5th, but this time straight and without having to return a trophy. Dave and I flew solid in the prelim rounds without major blunder and could win the team trophy (the tin cock). This was our goal and it felt good to achieve it.
