Today is the first day of the competition. Weather forecast was south southwest wind but rainy. Anyway we left the hotel at 8:45am and drove 50 minutes to the flying site which is a coastal site on the southwest corner of the island. We waited there for an hour or so wishing that the rain will stop, but it didn't, we went sightseeing in the nearby Hallim Park. There is a cave worth seeing in the park. We then had lunch and went back to the flying site again because weather forecast said that the rain will stop at about 2pm. Yes, it did stop but only for an hour when we checked on the slope and prepared to setup the course. Unfortunately, it rained again and was quite heavy, so the organizer had no choice but to cancel today race. We headed back to hotel at 3pm. Let's hope to have good weather tomorrow.

For the second day competition, it was raining in the morning. We left our hotel at 8:20am and arrived at the bottom of Shashara Oreum in the eastern side of the island. This gigantic volcanic remain is more than 500m in diameter and 410m height.
We waited at the bottom until the rain stop at 11:45am, then we took the 40 minute hike up. Wow! They said it is easier than Ma On Shan, but I would say otherwise. It is really a hard work to hike up and down. Anyway, we arrived at the top and found out that it was covered with dense fog, so another waiting begun. Not until at about 2:30pm did the fog started to clear up. Then after problematic setup with some equipment malfunctions, we finally kicked start at 3:15pm. The first lucky pilot to fly is Allan Yeung. Well, he made it without problem although the slope had some cross wind and turbulence. We finally managed to complete two rounds at 5:30pm just before sunset. We were all happy and didn’t mind to walk down in darkness, ha ha that’s the crazy pilots we are.

Current top 5 ranking is
1 st : Stanley Chan, Hong Kong
2 nd: Haeryoung Hwang, Korea
3 th: Joe Sung, Taiwan
4 th: Son Kwonsam, Korea
5 th: Pang Yong Wee, Singapore

Fastest speed is 42:xx by Korean pilot

We expected to have lighter wind tomorrow so the best speed will most likely be kept by the Korea pilot. But we will do our best to get the top position.
In order to gain the lost time, we will get up early tomorrow morning and leave the hotel at 6:00am.

Foggy up in the mountain, so it is a waiting game

There are a lot of Fosa and Ceres from the Korean pilots. Buadis Model must have done a lot of promotion in Korea.

Thank you all for your support.
I would like to thank the Korean organizer, despite of the poor weather, they have done a wonderful job to make this competition a success.

Here is a brief description of the third day contest.

We left hotel very early in the morning and arrived at the flying site just before 7am. The wind was 4 to 6 m/s initially and gradually dropped to zero after only 5 pilots have flown in the first round of the day. So we had to wait. Fortunately, the wind did come back at around 11:30am and we quickly restarted the game. Wind speed was marginally at 3m/s and graduately went up to 6 m/s when the contest was drawn to a close at 3:30pm. Three rounds were completed, so all together with two rounds completed yesterday we got 5 rounds to make it an official record.

Top 5 Ranking is

1 st: Stanley Chan, Hong Kong
2 nd Joe Sung, Taiwan
3 th Haeryoung Hwang, Korea
4 th Pang Yong Wee, Singapore
5.th Fu Hua Chang, Taiwan

Cheers!

This Korean pilot, Haeryong Hwang, is the F5D champion of Korea. He joined F3F only for two years but have already accumulated 30 F3F models including two FS3 and three FS4. Another crazy guy to watch! He got a 2nd runner up and best speed award in TR2012
