Hey everyone, Kevin here.

I had a great time this weekend. I got the chance to meet so many really awesome people and you all taught me a lot about flying. Big thanks to everyone who timed for me, its so helpful to get that instant feedback. I hope to see everyone again at future contests.

Map for future pilots. Yellow is no fly area.
I know that I should never take Jonís word literally in this forum...but this gets me thinking:
Is it possible to land out by 4í? Can we reach out to catch the airplane with one foot inside the boundary?

If you touch the plane while it's still moving and your body is fully in-bounds I'm pretty sure its a valid flight. One foot out of bounds and touch the plane, flight doesn't count.

Le Mon's map was pretty much spot on.

I do believe the map. Actually that map is applicable to me in any field...

Donít know if it is allowed by rules but here is a move pilot and timer should develop to catch airplane just few feet out of bound...
