Team USA, F3b practice session at Rhode Island Soaring Club

For all those interested in rc soaring, the US F3b team is having it's last big practice session before heading to the Czech Republic for the world championships in August.

Tom K. Mike L. and Reto F. are going to be at the Rhode Island Soaring Club field on the weekend of the 1st and 2nd July. There is the final team member, Glauco L. who so far cannot attend.

So if any one in the area is interested in seeing, getting involved or even flying, just get in touch with me here or else one of the gents mentioned above for further info.

It's not often that these pilots are on the East coast together, let alone to practice, on what is considered the toughest of rc soaring disciplines.

For those unaware what F3b is, it is a particular class of sailplane contest where the same sailplane must be capable of completing 3 separate and completely distinct flying tasks.
The first is a simple 10 min. thermal duration flight, the second is a distance flight to cover as many laps of a 150m course in 4 min. and the final task is to cover 4 laps of that same 150m. course in the shortest time possible.

It's sounds so easy, but it really isn't. Not by a long shot.

Come and see what this unique sport is all about.
