End of the competition season approaches

We had a great time at the 3D UK Champs in Tewkesbury last weekend. Dave came 7th overall which we were really pleased with. The standard of flying was extremely high & Dave scored his highest ever marks in both the freestyle & music rounds so things are definitely heading in the right direction. Congratulations to Stuart Mott who narrowly beat Duncan Osborne (reigning 3D UK Champs champion). Stu Smith came 3rd.

This weekend we should have been at the Charmouth Heli Flyin. Unfortunately due to car problems we were unable to make it. We've made the most of a quiet weekend to catch up on some outstanding jobs around the house. Fortunately the wet weather that was forecast for Sunday didn't materialise & from what we understand the weather in Dorset has been good all weekend so plenty of flying was had by all those who attended.

We have one more flying event to look forward to in 2012 - the F3N Team Trials which will take place on 21st October in Nottingham. The top three pilots from this competition will go forward to represent Great Britain at the 2013 F3N World Championships which will be held in Poland.
