AeroMusicals World Air Games update


Hi all,

The Swiss said today that they will run an international WAG AeroMusicals selection contest on November 15.

This is to date the latest selection contest before the end of the WAG 2009 selection contests period (closing on November 30).
It may be a good opportunity for a late selection.

For information, Austrian Gernot Bruckmann is presently leading the World Ranking. A decision on the number of invited competitiors to WAG 2009 will be reached on July 31, 2008 at a meeting between the WAG 2009 Organising Committee and the World Airsports Federation (FAI).

Why no US contest has been placed in the official calendar is still a mystery to me, but it is not too late with 6 months remaining.

Is there any Artistic Aerobatic competitions outside Europe? On July 31 meeting, only Aeromusical participant numbers will be decided ore also F6D and F6A?

See you soon,
Donatas

Hi Donatas,
Yes, this is the present ranking status.
Actually, yes, you are leading, Gernot did enter one selection contest up to now and you two. A first update will take place on June 8 after both of you will have flown in Turin and Gernot will still have the opportunity to enter a third selection contest in Switzerland and even a fourth one in Carvin (well, you'll probably come again to Carvin and it is not forbidden to you to fly in Switzerland too. But let's be realistic, Gernot and you will most probably be among the pilots invited to WAG, so who will be leading the World ranking at the end of November is of moderate importance only.

There is no Artistic Aerobatics contest scheduled outside of Europe right now, but it may change. In the US John Glezellis and Mark Leseberg, among others, want to qualify (and in AeroMusicals as well) but it is up to a club to set up a contest, just as the Torrey Pines Gulls do at Poway for gliders, btw at the same time you will be flying in Turin. I also heard that a WAG selection contest is being organized in Argentina. As for the US, it is up to any club to do it, it just needs to be registered to AMA.

The 31 July meeting will set the final number of competitors for all airsports and not only the model events. This will be based on budget (or more precisely on revenues once the major sponsorship, TV rights, etc. contracts have been concluded as all competitors (10 airsports, over 25 events) are invited, all expenses paid in Turin for one week as you know.

Hi,
Anybody wanting to see an AeroMusicals competition and show in Turin next week end with the top European pilots ?
All details on the World Air Games website WAG 2009
at
AeroMusicals

Practice on Friday, competition on Saturday and Sunday in the magnificent Palaruffini sport palace.

An RC Airship Regatta is also scheduled, should be interesting to see these lighter-than-air racing in the beautiful Palaruffini hall.

Hi Richard,
Sorry, don't expect a round by round report, I'll be on the field all day long (also for the other WAG classes) and I'll be able to connect only late in the evening once back to the hotel, so I'll merely try to send results and possibly a couple of photographs and/or videos on Saturday and Sunday night, certainly past midnight (Italian time). AeroMusicals begins at 6:30 PM on Saturday and at 7:00 PM on Sunday. Practice tomorrow and Saturday the full afternoon but I will then be at Aeritalia airport for the Artistic Aerobatics and glider events.

Sorry Richard,I have been unable to connect yesterday and tiday will be quite short The competition finished a couple of hours ago and I am just now coming back to the hotel.

So in a few words: the hall is fantastic. Today we had the last qualification round, then semis and finals. The last four pilots were Donatas and Gernot plus Fabien Turpaud from France and Filippo Materazzi from Italy.

Filippo dropped first, then Fabien to leave Donatas and Gernot in the finals. Interestingly, after Donatas leading the first rounds, both pilots got an identical score at semis and Gernot Bruckmann won the finals It had been reversed earlier during the Artistic Aerobatics outdoor contest.

Contrarily to common F3P practice, the pilots were opposite the judges and spectators and this suited everybody. Obviously it cannot be done in the smallest halls, but whenever possible it adds enormously to the interest as everybody can see not only the pilot's face, but his various expressions during the flight

Of special interest: in fifth place we found young Hungarian Gyula Inzsöl who designed and built a new plane after Mons, composed a new flight schedule and progressed enormously. I have no doubt that, should he qualify for the WAG 2009, he would definitely be a serious candidate for a medal. The last news I heard was that there may be a selection contest in Hungary next August to provide more incentive for other Hungarian pilots. With two international selection contests in the calendar (in addition to national contests) counting for qualification (Carvin in France and Dübendorf in Switzerland, both next November) there may still be more surprises.

No photographs today, except one from last Friday of Gernot and Fabien during a practice session.

More later.

Interesting to note: all models, including helicopters, were electric-powered except one.

Yes, even all gliders use only electric power Looks like everyone love new technology. One more interesting thing i notice, weather in Italy is slightly different from what we have in Lithuania, and same plane act little different. Probably because Turin is much higher above see level than LT.

Fai guy, can you tell where can we see all competition results? And when ranging will be updated?





Thx, in advance,
Donatas,

Donatas,
Well, your last video (finals compulsory) mentions F6B (AeroMusicals) while it should be F6A (Artistic Aerobatics), so actually you are on the wrong forum !

The Hand Thrown Gliders results from Poway have just been received one hour ago, so with a little bit of luck you may expect the updated results and ranking to be published later today.

I think all RCgroups visitors find outside AM also interesting same as indoor, besides everyone already saw mine and Gernot indoor routines Here is something you all enjoy

Congratulation Donatas,

with your first place in F6A, you demonstrated that size doesn't (always) matter.

Jürgen

P.S.: There is no such thing as outdoor AM. It is called AA = Artistic Aerobatics
