Test Post for BBCC3 Poll Thread

"BBCC 3" -- 3rd Balsa Builders Conversion Contest Judgment Thread

It was a difficult season for many of the participants but, as of 28 August 2014, three participants successfully flew their entries in BBCC 3.

It is now up to you to decide the "best build."

The contest thread is located HERE. This poll will be "open" until midnight UTC, 31 March 2014. The current time UTC is available HERE.

Each participant, listed at the bottom of this post, built and flew a radio controlled model aircraft, constructed predominantly of balsa, based upon a kit or plans not originally designed for radio control. The poll, located at the top of this thread, will decide whose entry is declared "Best Build;" the winner receiving:
1) The choice of:
a) three Peter Rake aviation art prints or
b) a single Peter Rake build plan (see the list appended to Post #1 of the contest thread for selection and http://www.peterrake.com for photos of the planes built from the plans).
Thanks to Peter Rake for his generosity.
2) A NIB laser-cut kit of the 24" Guillow's Nieuport II -- graciously provided by pburress.
You may use whatever criteria you wish, but I hope you will do the following:
1. Click on each of the links/pictures below, which will take you to a participant's build thread.

2. Read through each thread and comment as you wish; adding your encouragement, appreciation, and good ideas.

3. Return to this thread and, using your own criteria, vote for the one you think best.

4. Consider joining the next BBCC, coming soon to the Balsa Builders Forum
