Back from Zone 2011

Wow, what a weekend. The first Zone competition with new 'knock-out' formula took place last weekend at the Weston Park International Model Air Show. Dave was seeded no.5 which we were pleasantly surprised with - he sailed through the qualifying rounds no problem and was then drawn against Raquel Bellot from Spain (seeded 4th). Raquel won on this occasion & went through to come 4th overall in the competition. The final was between Duncan Osborne & Sebastian Duus from Denmark & it couldn't have been a closer final. Duncan triumphed having been awarded 3 of the 5 judges' points. Stefan Simmons came third. For more information on the Zone format, check out their website www.ZoneFormat.com. Dave was awarded a special trophy for the best autorotation of the competition which was a nice bonus.

We would like to thank Stu Smith, Craig Simmons & the Zone team for all the effort they put into making the weekend such a great success. Well done guys! We'll definitely be back next year!

We are now preparing for the next competition of the season which will be the Park Hall 3D Cup over the weekend of 2nd /3rd July. We will also be at Wings & Wheels (North Weald Aerodrome) this coming Sunday 26th as Dave will be flying a display for the AHA (Association of Helicopter Aerosports). Come & say hello if you plan on being there!
