Think we all had a real good day, 20 pilots started the comp with approx 50 people on the field. There was some fantastic fun fly flying going on and just as the previous 3 rounds the comps were tweaked a little to aid new commers to the event.

I cant recomend these comps enough, everone had a right laugh with a great bunch of people using low cost models, heck i only beat Richard Harris in limbo by 1 pass and he was flying a Autogyro, the events are just hard enough to "test" you a little but also easy enough for any A cert pilot to be able to fly a resonable round.

A fomie wot 4 or similar will get you mid table in the scores this has been proven accross 3 events now so no need for the full on funfly models to begin with.

The main focus is to have fun and a few flights and I think the concept works really well.

The next round is likley to be held at the Newport club (in Shropshire) so lets get out there practicing we need more team members to take on the challange.

O and last one from me, Thanks to Rich for the loan of his Fusion Fun fly, really helped me climb the table having a plane that actualy worked.

Results below, showing pilots round possitions and overall team score

Andy S 3rd name down, Peter S 16th name down, and me as BB 1 from bottom.
Great team result for us thats once again got RDMFC`s name out and around the world via social media and no doubt via mag articles
