Hi HK VR team,

Thanks for the pictures. Very nice!

How about the flying sites? I read from Yahoo group F3F that someone had already flew the plane into the sea!

What is the numbers on your coats?

From the photos I can see a very crisp division between the sky and the sea. Must be very clean air :o

Big wok!?

But the HKSAR flag is on the same orientation as the Iceland and Norway flags. It's true that they are opposite to the Germany flag but I don't see there is a big problem.

How about the US flag?

Hendry,

You are very bright on the flags! I think the HKSAR flag is OK but when I was checking the HK flag I found there may be some real problems on the Solvakia, Spain, United states and the Venezuela flags. They are flipped. I don't know if it is acceptable in real practice (since a flag can be viewed from both sides).

其實兩個問題都有發生

如果把全部國旗順時針轉90度,會發現是區旗上下倒轉左,支英國、德國等旗就反轉(變成好像由旗的後面看一樣)
其實由後面看問題都不大,時時都會啦,但倒轉就唔多好啦,要劃一方向嗎

Hi, we have completed the first day contest with three rounds of result.

The slope that we flew today is different with what we have for training yesterday. The wind speed was at 5 m/s in the morning and went up to 13m/s in the late afternoon. The landing was a bit challenging because we need to walk 300m away from the start point and there are lots of tree obstructing the sight.
Mak's first landing unfortunately ended in diaster, he lose sight of his Newsting during the landing and his Newsting nearly went into the water, fortunately, the plane was last crashed back on to the slope and went directly into a tree. You will sure see another two big holes on the other side of his wing! He is now too busy to repair the plane and hopefully get it back to the combat line tomorrow.

We got ton of photos and movies with world top pilots flying their models. However the internet connection speed is too slow for us to upload the picture, will do it as much as we can later.

Our results in the first three rounds are not good but we hope we can do better on the way as we graduately adapting to the local condition.

Cheers

大會安排左尋日要黎做練習﹐有晒比賽既設施﹐等每個人都可以同自己度下時間。尋日D風麻麻﹐但係德國隊既表現就令人側目﹐佢地隻機既性能明顯高一班﹐D手指仲勁﹐佢地個種彈跳式既 climb out 方法我從未見過﹐但非常又效﹐過彎好貼﹐機速唔減不特以﹐仲越飛越快﹐ miss 個彎既時候佢地反應好快。補完彎後機速可以無也點減﹐好勁﹗睇完佢地練習後我都大約估到今屆冠軍係邊隊。

我就慘D﹐landing 個陣扯甩左隻 Elita 既 flap servo 同撞瓜左隻 Pike 既 3102 flap servo, 要急修。

今日係第一日比賽﹐比賽個場地好古怪﹐飛完之後要行 300m 去降落場地﹐中途又有高樹阻著視線﹐未飛夠十隻機就已經有機掛樹。阿麥都領野, 隻 New Sting 嚴重受損。大會見到咁﹐係第二個回合即刻改例﹐準賽員飛完後入返賽道一次囉高度﹐先至行去降落。今日七十幾人飛到 3 個回合。Stanley 大約排五十﹐我同阿麥就幾乎包尾。嘩﹐人地D高手真係高手﹐唔係浪得虛名。下面有D相俾大家睇﹕

德國隊既武器﹐係自製 hollow mold 機﹐個模係用租返黎既 CNC機器做。佢地由 87 年開始玩 F3B, F3J 同 F3F, 經驗同知識都非常豐富。呢隻機翼展 2.6m , 上面貼左好多 F3B 賽既 label¸身經百戰﹐好多地方都補過﹐但強風同微風性能都屬超班﹐飛微風個陣佢隻機唔輕﹐但仍然好升﹐真係唔知點解
Image


我隻 Elita mount servo 既熱縮膠扯爆左 Image


隻 Pike 既 servo 撞斷左入面 VR個條軸﹐要成隻換。
Image

Image


大會 keep起所有人既天線﹐你可以 set機﹐但係唔會 jam 到人
Image

呢個英國佬睇怕都唔駛介紹
Image

Image


未飛夠十隻機就已經有機掛樹
Image


Stanley 同阿麥掟 New Sting
Image

Stanley帶阿麥去 landing 場
Image

Stanley ﹕阿麥﹐囉高D先呀﹗
阿麥﹕哎呀﹐睇唔到呀! ???我估落左海。
Image

隻機原來係撞樹
Image

要急修﹗
Image

Stanley 就手痕﹐降落前係樹後面玩 DS, 但隻 Sting頂唔順﹐睇著隻翼猛咁震﹐落黎發覺個身扯裂左﹐

I'm #27, Stanley is #7, and YC is #51.
So, we can have time to help each other.
There are a lot of slopes in that area for all wind conditions.
We have been to a new slope everyday!
It was rather difficult to fly in a new site each day :?

Hello Mak, and the HK VR team,

Changing flying location everyday is definity not favourable, but this is equal to all the contestants (except the Germany, forget them :!: ). Just take it as a challenge. Everytime there is a new slope, it is also new to the others. Fly as you're in Hong Kong. F3F is against time, not against the other opponents. I believe you guys can adapt to new condition easily, as it has been proven in the last FNS F3F.

After all, it is a game, so enjoy it :wink:

Hi all,

For those of you who want the latest news from the front line, you may goto the F3X website from Norway.

http://www.f3x.no/index2.htm

Though most of the information is related to the Norway teams. Note that Andreas Herrig of Germany flew a 34.7sec yesterday and the best yet is 32.5sec.

Hi,
we have just finished the third day competition.
We did quite well on the second day. Our position in the overall ranking is improved. Mak and Y.C. have finished round 6 yesterday but mine not yet as there were rain in the late afternoon. So my round 6 was run in the morning, today but on a different slope. For which the lift is general worse than the yesterday slope.
So one - third of the pilots who did round 6 today have stated a protest and the jury decided to split the pilots into two groups for calcualting the score.
Nevertheless I did quite well on round 6, my overall ranking was once jump to 45 from 49 yesterday.
But unfornately, my round 7 result was a diaster 54s because I had two cuts. Round 8 and 9 are 47s and 44s, not bad so my position should go up a bit. The fastest time for round 9 is only 40s so in that sense I am happy with this result.
My Sting's fuse was again demaged in landing today and I need to repair tonight.
Mak is also improving with 49s, 50s, and 47s in round 7, 8 and 9.
Unfornately, his NYX was crashed into a tall tree during landing on after round 9 run.
There is a big hole on the wing! Seems that his planes really love tree!

Very unfornately Y.C. was sick the whole day and absent from the competition, so the HKG team position was likely dropped to the end of the ranking list! Y.C. does look very sick after I and Mak come back from the contest to see him, look like he will be absent from tomorrow competition too! Anyway, he is resting in bed for over 24 hours now and hope he is recovering soon.

The temperture here is below 10 and the windchill factor is high so our fingers are shaking during flight, but our moral are still high.

Mak will upload some photos after he has repaired his NYX.

Here are some more pictures.

This plane is very fast, but crashed into the wooden pole in front of point A. It was repaired with tapes on the field, and continued to get high points.
Image

Stanley damaged the Sting again :(
Image

Today's flying site. Landing zone have large rotors which can turn your plane upside down.
Image

Stabley got 44" with the NYX.
Image

A lot of Elita flying on VR2004.
ImageImage
ImageImage

This guy crashed his NewSting by point A.
Image

My NewSting had a quick patch last night.
Image

Today, my NYX land on top of a tree.
Well ! more repairs to do :cry:

The NYX was repaired with tapes.
It's ready to fly again :)
Image

but Stanley crash landing today!
So, more repairs :shock:
Image

People have different kind of methods for their repair job.
Here's one with a beer-can covering :roll:
Image

Waiting for too long to fly?
No! We've done 4 rounds today with 77 contestents.
That is over 300 flights in a day :shock:
Image

Looking for your new results ?
Image

YC made a mess with his plane, by digging with the Elita's nose :roll:
Image

Here's HK team with their war ships.
Image

A plane landed on a pole ?
It's just some pilot making turns, right at the base.
How did they manage that :shock:
