Day 12, The finals

We had 4 rounds of competition scheduled for today. Two of F3C and two of F3N.
The day was overcast and cool. Daniel was up first in F3C and caught a terrible weather period and had a 213.5, far and away his worst. I watched it and everything that would adversely affect a flight happened to him. Fortunately he was able to drop that round and use his preliminary score.
Nick flew a little later with slightly better conditions and had a 245.00. Ennio won the round with a 253.25 and Ito came in with a 252 so Nick's normalized score was really good.
In the round of F3N, we did set maneuvers, Nick had a 4068.00 which was good. Jamie performed well with a 4156.5. Eric Weber won the round with a blistering 4304 and Kenny Ko was second with a 4299.5. Any score over 4000 was really good.
In the second round of F3C, Nick had a 244.25 and Daniel had a 241.75. Ennio won the round with a very nice 260.75 and Frenchman Pierre Gutierrez sneaked in ahead of ITO with a 259.75 to Ito's 259.5. That means Ennio won the preliminaries and two rounds of the finals, so no matter what happens in the last round, he in the World Champion. As it stand right now, the French Team looks like they have a good shot at the Team Championship along with the Swiss. Third looks like a shootout between the Japanese and Team USA. Naturally, I'm rooting for us.
In the second round of F3N, Freestyle, Kenny Ko blasted a 502 and won the round. Eric Weber was second with a 482. Nick had a very nice 480 and Jamie a 465.
As of right now:
F3C
1. Ennio Graber, World Champ, Switzerland
2. Ito Japan
3. Guttierez France
4. Maxwell USA
5. Mondet France
6. Iso Japan
7. Poyet France
8. Rettenbacher Austria
9. Duzzi Switzerland
10. Wachsmuth Germany
11. Roberts GBR
12. Del Lungo Italy
13. Hiatt USA
14. Kunii Japan
15. Dobashi Japan

F3N
1. KO Taipai
2. Weber Germany
3. Robertson USA
4. Maxwell USA
5. Pescante Italy
6. Osborne GBR
7. Baeumener Germany
8. Hansen Denmark
9. Hawtin GBR
10. Jakobsen Denmark

Two of the F3C finals pilots are JUNIORS, Thomas Rettenbacher of Austria and Axel Mondet of France. Both are great young men and a credit to their parents and each to their country. I wish we had about ten like them competing in the USA.

Day 11

Today was a practice day before the finals. We decided to go to our practice field all day and work on things that we think will help us score better. We are finding there is a very different "style" than we are used to seeing. In F3C both Nick and Daniel have adapted pretty well and their scores keep climbing.
In F3N by watching the guys that are scoring well, you can pick up some tendencies. Nick is very good at that.
The finals start tomorrow, two rounds of F3C, F schedule, and two rounds of F3N, set maneuvers and freestyle. Daniel flies first at 10:00 AM.

DAy 10, Round 4 for F3C, Rounds 2,3,4 for F3N

Today was the last day of the preliminaries for both eF3C and F3N. The morning was cold and overcast with wind, just what you don't want I n F3C Cliff flew first in really poor conditions and managed a very respectable 232.75.
Daniel flew next and, even in less than ideal conditions, scored a 243.00. He tried doing a couple of things in a different style and looks like the judges liked them.
Nick flew at 4:30. It was still windy but he changed style just a little and finally managed to bust the 250 mark with a 253.00 in not perfect conditions.
Ito flew in heavy wind but could only manage a 254.25. Both Graber and Pierre Gutierrez of France caught a break and had less wind and took advantage. Graber won the round with a 263.00 and Pierre had a 260.75. WOW! The French team is very strong this year including a junior Axel Mondet that finished in 9th place.
Preliminary results.
1 Graber Swiss
2. Ito Japan
3. Gutierrez France
4 Maxwell USA
5. Iso Japan
6. Roberts GBR
7. Rettenbacher Austria (a junior, great kid)
8. Poyet France
9. Mondet France
10. Hiatt USA
11. Duzzi Swiss
12. Dobashi Japan
13. Del Lungo Italy
14. Wachsmuth Ger
15. Kunii Japan

Mark Christie was 16th, Stefano Lucci was 17th and CLiff was 18th. the next Swiss [pilot was Marc Emmenegger at 22. As it stands it will be a dog fight for the podium. Right now it looks like Japan and France will fight it out for the top spot and Switzerland and the USA for 3rd.
In F3N, there were three rounds
IN Freestyle, Jamie was up first for the US and scored a 449, good but not his best as weather did not help him at all. Nick flew later and had a 476. Kenny Ko won the round with w 494,and Eric Weber had a 486.
IN round 3, set maneuvers, Jamie broke 4000 with a solid 4116.00. I think he was disappointed but he flew well. Nick put in a 4028.00, again solid but not his best. Kenny Ko won the round with w 4268.00 with Weber in second at 4250.00
Late in the afternoon was Round 4, freestyle to music. I missed Jamie's flight as Nick had an F3C flight at the same time but Julie, his caller, said it was great and he scored a 522.00. I had seen Nick practice his music flight but he was always using head phones so I had never seen it while hearing the music. It was amazing. The judges thought so too, scoring a 537.00. Kenny Ko won the round with a 541.5, Nick was second, Lucas Pescante was third with a 535, and Weber was 4th with a 534.
Results for F3N Preliminaries
1. KO TPE
2. Weber Ger
3. Pescante Italy
4. Maxwell USA
5. Robertson USA
6. Osbourne GBR
7. Baeumener Ger
8. Hansen Den
9. Hawtin GBR
10. Jakobsen Den

With a respectable third pilot, the USA would be right in the thick of the medal hunt and a spot on the podium but with only two, we have no shot. It looks to me like the GBR and German teams will flight it out for the top spot. Kenny Ko is right now the favorite to win but ANY of the top 6 can blister the finals and win.
Thursday is a practice day so we will head to the field and work all day. Finals start Friday.

Day 9, Round 3 for F3C, Round 1 for F3N

It was a cold and rainy day. Nearly everyone flew in some sort of rain. Nick was up fairly early and flew in a drizzle but managed a 242.75 and 5th place right now. Cliff flew also in a light rain and had his best flight, a 242 that moved him back into 17th, in sight of a flyoff spot. Daniel was up last. All 5 of the pilots before him, including Ennio, had dead calm. Ennio made the most of it with a round high 261.5, which raised the bar pretty high for a fairly low scoring round. Daniel went out to fly and the wind picked up. He hung on and managed a really nice 244 and 11th place. We have one more preliminary round of "P" schedule tomorrow and then the flyoffs begin.
In F3N, Jamie was our first pilot and put in a nice flight of 3881.5 and 2nd place. Nick put in his flight at 3818.5 and 5th place. Eric Weber of Germany had the high score 4083. The second round was delayed by rain so tomorrow they will fly three rounds.
Our batteries were finally delivered today so we have some full capacity batteries now and Nick can go all out and not worry so much about running out of battery. Kenny Ko had that happen today and damaged his model though it was repairable.
All our guys have worked really hard and are giving max performances. It is unfortunate that we only have two guys on our F3N Team as we could be a serious contender for a world championship team. The Brits have all four of their team in the top 10 including their junior. In F3C, in the top 15, the Japanese have 4 pilots, the French have 3, the Swiss have two, and we have two. It's going to be a dogfight for the Team podium finishes.

Day 8, Round 2

We had a beautiful day, the winds were pretty calm and the judges were primed. All our scores went up. Unfortunately so did everyone else. Ito and Graber tied for the lead with a 261. Nick had a very good flight and scored 250. Daniel had a very strong 244.75. Cliff ran into a model issue and still improved his score to 226.25. Final results for the day had Nick in 5th, Daniel in 12th, and Cliff in 25th. We still have two days of preliminaries to go and the results will change dramatically, especially if the weather changes like tomorrow is predicted. Nick flies early tomorrow so hopefully he gets the calm before the weather. Cliff is around 2:00 and Daniel is dead last at 5:10, all predicated on no weather delays.
Tomorrow is the first two rounds of F3N. We got Nick and Jamie's models processed today and had our official practice flights. Jamie is up fist for us in the set maneuvers at 8:30. Nick follows at 10:40. I have no idea how this works so we will struggle through it.

Day 7

F3C Round 1 is in the books. It was a cool rainy day but we managed to get in a full round so it counts. The guys did great. Nick is 4th with a 241.75, Daniel is 10th with a 234, and Cliff is 17th with a 218. Ito won the round with a 256, followed by Dobashi, and Graber. Nick ran out of space on his rolls which were beautiful, went a little out of the 60 degree box, and incurred a 3 point penalty else he would be in second. Darn! But the fix is easy and he is in the thick of it. Daniel and Cliff have a clear opportunity to move up as the judges warmed up in the afternoon.
F3C doesn't fly quite as early tomorrow as we did today so I don't have to get up at 6:00 AM. We have model processing tomorrow for F3N and our official practice is also tomorrow. The first round of F3N is Tuesday but the weather is supposed to be awful so that may be the rain day.

Day 6

It was an eventful and busy day. Today we had official practice and model processing. We stayed in town and went out and visited with the Japanese. They are good guys that we have had a long running rivalry, but good natured. They invited us to fly at their field and we each got a turn and got to watch them fly. It was seven very impressive flights.
We loaded up and went through model processing without any issues. At lunch I ordered a small pizza and it took over and hour. Hmmmm. The FAI judges came in to eat at the same time and I got to speak to the ones I know. After lunch we went to the official site and each put in our practice flight. No issues there.
We went back to the main office and had opening ceremonies with speeches from the mayor, a member of Parliament, the president of the FAI Jury, and had a local group of singers in traditional dress. After that we got a really pretty cool airshow from a German pilot in an Extra. Pretty cool
I had a Team Managers meeting after that and we set the flight schedules for the preliminary rounds. Cliff is 4th, Daniel is 20th and Nick is 26th. The gloves come off tomorrow and it gets real.
Still no batteries. On the bright side, Jamie's models finally showed up. He has picked them up and is on his way back from Warsaw airport. He has tomorrow and Monday to practice so he should be OK.

Day 5

Weather was worse today but we still managed to get work in. I got both the F3C and F3N Teams registered and we have processing and official practice times scheduled. Tomorrow is F3C processing and official practice and then at 4:30 there are the opening ceremonies. Since alphabetical, the USA team is last to practice.
Jamie's models are still lost. He has made arrangements to borrow a model from a UK F3N Team member but it had a V Radio and Vbar in it so he is busily changing the radio out to a CGY 750 and Futaba receiver tonight.
Our F3C Team batteries are still in limbo although there is a possibility they may show up tomorrow. The contest starts Sunday so if worse comes to worse, we can fly the practice batteries we have and hope for the best. The worst case is for Nick in F3N as he is using older batteries as practice batteries and really wanted/needed the good ones for F3N official flights.
We did cold flights this morning, no warm up, just go out and do a contest flight. I was pleased at how we looked. There were some mistakes but not big ones. We worked on the issues we had and by the end of the practice day, a lot of that had been fixed.
Looking forward to tomorrow as I go to the Team Manager meeting and (hopefully) get the flight order. Since Nick is flying both F3C and F3N, we may have some challenges as far as scheduling. Both he and I will have to pay attention. A good thing is F3N does not start until Tuesday.

Day 4

We had a little bit of bad weather today. We got out to the practice field and each pilot got in a couple of flights then it started to rain. We took a break and went into town for lunch. By the time we finished lunch, the weather had pretty much cleared and we were able to finish the day in the sunshine.
On the trip back to the hotel we travel through some really pretty rural countryside. The river runs along one side and the forest on the other. Along the way there are people along the road selling fresh products, currants, mushrooms, and you never know exactly what you will see.
We went to the pizza parlor we went to 4 years ago and it is still there and still as good. Dinner was great and we were able to get back to the hotel before 11:00 PM.
Tomorrow is our last free day as we have registration and model processing the following day the we get to practice on the official site. Each pilot gets a 15 minute window to test the site. I have to go to the site tomorrow and get our time slots.
Still no extra batteries but the US Consulate is now and they say they should be here in a couple of days.

Day 3

Our day started great. Both Nick and Daniels models look and sound great. We made some improvements in positioning and I feel really good about the effort the guys are putting in. Cliff got a nights sleep and this morning assembled his models and hit the practice field. His primary model was okay out of the box. His back up model required a little retuning but was certainly improving.
I got a text from Jamie saying he had arrived in Poland and hoped to see us this evening. I got a call from him later. His models had not arrived on the plane he was on and they did not exactly know where they were, probably in Chicago. The earliest they can get here is tomorrow. Fortunately, that still gives him plenty of time. The story gets better. He has a rental car reservation, BUT they will not release the car to him without a credit card number for a damage deposit. All he has is a debit card which in the States also acts as a credit card but for a car damage deposit, debit cards are limited to your account balance so they require a credit card. I drove to Warsaw and we got it straightened out so he has a car. His models are supposed to be delivered but I would not be surprised if he has to drive back and pick them up.
FedX is STILL holding our batteries and none of us can figure why so we are operating with only one battery per model right now. While in Chopin Airport I saw and spoke to the Japanese Team at the rental car counter. They had a BUNCH of great big model boxes so the fun is about to begin.
After the round trip to Warsaw, I am pooped so am heading to bed.

Day 2

Up at 7:30, a quick breakfast, and head for the practice field. We stopped at the OBI store and bought a set of grass shears. When we got to the practice field we did a little grounds keeping. We cut the grass in the circle to keep the tail rotor blades out of the grass and keep the models cleaner. It also made the circle easier to see.
Nick's F3N models are looking great and working well. Yesterday we got all the models built and flying. Today we started working on improving how we do maneuvers. I have never called for F3N but from what I see, I can get it pretty quickly.
Daniel again had some issues with the model nodding. He spent quite a bit of time working with both models and by the end of the day, they were sitting very still and looking good.
Cliff arrived this evening. He had a delay due to weather in Orlando and missed his connection in Frankfort so was later than expected. He has arrived with his models. After a nights sleep, he will assemble models in the morning and head for the practice field.
we are short batteries right now as FedX here has a bunch of "official" paper work that must be done. Nick has worked really hard on it and we think we have it settled and we should b
get our batteries in the next couple of days. As is, each model has one set so you must wait for them to charge between flights.
Some of the other Teams are starting to arrive. The Austrian Team is in our hotel and the Japanese and British Teams are due in tomorrow.

Arrival

After a tedious and boring 14 hrs of flying (and waiting) and a 3hr drive, I am in Wloclawek Poland, site of the 2017 F3C/N World Championships. Nick Maxwell and Daniel Hiatt were already here and checked in. Cliff Hiatt and Jamie Robertson are due in shortly, Cliff tomorrow and Jamie the next day.
After assembling models, Daniel, Nick and I headed for our private practice field about an hour away but at an aeroclub field that we used previously in 2013. We got there and checked in. It took a while to paint the course and get everything set for practice. Since it is our first day, and we are all jet lagged, we spent most of the day checking to be sure all the models were functioning normally and we had everything we needed. The wind was blowing pretty hard but also pretty steadily, which, if you must have wind, is what you want.
Daniel test flew both of his models and Nick flew all four of his. Daniel had a slight issue that since it is colder here than in Huntsville, he had the wrong dampers installed so he changed those out and after some quick changes had dampers that seemed to perform well. Tomorrow we will all have had a good nights sleep and will be almost adjusted to being 6-7 hours out of sync. I woke this morning at 8:00 AM and went all day but am really tired so bed is calling. I'll try and update this every day and keep you informed on what's happening

Progress

We have started getting the logistics of the trip together. I think we all have hotel reservations, except maybe Greg. Most have flights scheduled except me. I still need to get flights, car rental, and a hotel in Warsaw on the way back. I also must get my international drivers license renewed as they are only good for one year.
I really have to give Nick credit as he is doing the double, both F3C and F3N. It requires twice as much practice and twice as much preparation, 4 models instead of two so twice as much shipping, and split time for practice when in Poland.
Nick, Daniel, and I are going first with Jamie and Cliff coming a couple of days later. We are staying in the same hotel as last time, which is very nice, includes breakfast, has an excellent restaurant, and is convenient but quiet at night. No AC but usually it cools off quickly after dark.

Update

Wow, where does the time go? Some things have happened since I posted last. Dwight Shilling has stepped down as a Team member and has been replaced by former World Champion Cliff Hiatt. Cliff is in the process of building new models and getting into practice mode.
Nick is working hard at getting his models sorted out with the new fuselages and fine tuning all the parameters in the CGY750.
Daniel is working way too many out of town hours but is carrying a model with him to practice as much as he can. I am planning a trip to Huntsville along with Tim Diperi to work with the guys. This is going to be a monumental task as we do not have a Team Manager (as far as I know) and no fund raising has been done. It looks like all the funds on this trip will come out of pocket. If anyone has some extra sponsorship dollars out there, we surely could use the help.

I thought I'd go ahead and get started on the 2017 World Championship blog. I just got home from the US Nationals and Team Trials so I now know who is on the F3C Team.
Nick Maxwell Quest Futaba
Daniel Hiatt SAB Urukay Competition Futaba
Dwight Shilling Quest Futaba
Alternate
Cliff Hiatt SAB Urukay Competition Futaba

I judged the F3C trials and it was a dogfight to see who made the Team, Congratulations guys.

We also selected the very FIRST US F3N Team
Nick Maxwell Minicopter Diabolo Futaba
Jamie Robertson Align Trex 700 JR (?)
Greg Jackson Synergy 766 Jeti

I also judged this and because of the K factors in scoring, we truly had no idea who won until it was announced. These guys were fun to watch and I have very high expectations for the WCs.
The World Championships are again in Wloclawik Poland where they were in 2013. I had a great time there in 2013 and we did well as a Team. That was Curtis Youngblood's last WC as he announced his retirement after finishing on the podium.
I will try to report on the team results at all the contests occurring between now and the WCs. I know we have the TCRC Championships in the Tampa Florida area coming in October and Usually three of the four team guys are there.

So I did a spool up last night.... she is getting closer. We will see what the data downloads from the ESC'S have to say. Check out the tail drive system. And finish locking down the canopy. But she sounds cool....hope you like the video

it has been a long time since i posted on here so here are some up dates.

rebuild of bulkheads and footers finished on version 2.
currently balancing the blades and finalizing the lipos positioning. I have a latch to install on the canopy and position pins as well.

the rpm and endpoints are good to go. sooo we may have a maiden flight tomorrow!!!
