Just like to say that as a pilot who entered the 3D clubman comp and didn't do very well, it is my opinion that it was a great comp as it helped inspire people like me to do better and try again next year.

It's not about who came 1st,2nd or 3rd its about being inspired to improve our skills. Without this event that may not have been possible.

So give the Goole lads a break as they worked their b******s off to make the event what it was.

The last thing some of us want to happen is for this new UK comp not to take place next year.

Well done to the organisers and the judges for a great weekend.

Looking forward to next year.

Dave/Millar

P.S. I have footage of craig simmons and craig jones crashes, if anyone wants them let me know.

I thought it was a great weekend and the competition went really well. Seems to be just one or two that have had an issue with the way it went, but you can't please everyone. I just hope that Neil and Paul and the others aren't too put off by it and will do it next year.

i had a great weekend and would do it all again without hesitation regardless of the result, i got to meet some really great flyer's and thoroughly enjoyed being in the competition (despite the nerves )
i think the event was ran very smoothly and would like to thank all the guys involved in making it happen, and also to offer a big congratulations to all the guys who competed, most of all to bruce for taking 1st, and to thank the judges who's work on the day was exemplary despite any aspersions which may have been cast to the contrary, and of course also a big thanks to adam crane for being my caller.

Just finished reading the other thread that turned into a slanging match.

Whats that all about? must admit some of it was rather funny, perhaps a boxing ring at next years comp? sort the weat from the chaff?

Any way, as I said before, you guy's who organised & ran the competition must not get disheartened by idiots who a plainly jealous.

You all did a fantastic job & I along with everybody else enjoyed it.

You can certainly count me in for help on the next one (unless I get in the comp )

I spent both days at the comp, and did not speak to a single person who did not enjoy it.

There was just one winner in the comp, but I thought the whole thing was a winner.

Only problem I can see with next years comp is EVERYONE's gonna want to be in it

And that's the true measure of what you guys have achieved..

Don't let a couple of jobsworth's put you off...

I competed (??) and am glad I did. As you say, it has inspired me to do better, along with many others. I would suggest that everybody who competed and enjoyed it please send a pm to biggen and britflyer, they, along with many others, did a great job. If we don't show our support and gratitude the event will not happen next year. I will be entering next year whether or not they decide to hold it. That way I'll either win, or look totally stupid when the competition starts.
Well done guys.

slightly off subject, but I am going to post pictures in my gallery of everybody as they started their helis for the freestyle round. I need to confirm names as I am doing an article for MHW. I think I can work out the top five, and myself, but may get some others wrong. Just pm me with the picture number and your name to match. Also if you have a good picture that could be used please e-mail it to me as not all my pictures are good.Sorry to have digressed

I came and watched the fun fly day of the Clubman 3D and I realised how 'basic' my flying was. I was a intimidated by the skill level of the flying and never got brave enough to get the helis out and fly. Still I was inspired at what I saw and went home and put a gallon and a half through my R50 over the following few days. I was able to push myself further knowing what others can do. I guess that over the comming year I may (?) improve enough (or get braver) to have a go at the fun fly next year.
I used to fly GBRCAA F3A many years ago and it was all about taking part, winning or even placing well was a bonus, but by compeating you get better. Its not the easiest thing to stand in front a crowd (and 3 judges) who know what you are 'trying' to do, with your legs and hands shaking and fly your best flight. You will always fly better down your own field on your own or with your mates in the 'comfort zone'.
My thoughts to those that did not do as well as they hoped would be 'at least you tried'. Lets face it , if it was an easy sport to master we would all be playing golf.

Can I just say I didn't know any of the fliers (how would I they were first timers which is the way it should be ) but me and my mates from Sunderland had a great day out - had a lot of laughs and watched some grand heli flying as well .
More strength to the organisers - we need to breed some champions for the future to stuff the Yanks in international competitions so where bettter than in comps such as Clubmans 3D.
By the way we all liked Stephen Gerrard's demo's I think he could do well at Northampton if he's entering.

Hi Neil , Paul and the whole Goole event team....Don't let a miniscule amount of dissatifaction stop you putting on a more enjoyable show than last two 3D masters (and they were good) the atmosphere was great ...even the rain as was did'nt put off the good spirits....I know how much effort goes into running an event particularly if it includes a competition of the type at Goole....I thoroughly enjoyed the Saturday but could'nt make the Sunday...My only contribution to the weekend was to drive the Gerrard man there....good ain't he

Don't be put off..you did a great job

This was the first time my husband and I have been to Goole and we really enjoyed ourselves.
To all the organisers of the Flyin and the Clubmans i would like to say well done, dont let a few bad comments ruin the event for future entrants.
The standard of flying was very high and the effort put in by organisers and pilots really showed.

You know the saying:You can please some people some of the time, but you can't please everybody all of the time.

Hi Neil and the team
I have not read all the moans and I wont bother as I do not think any one had anything to moan about (except the rain you really must sort that out Neil

As probably one of the oldest if not the oldest competitor I experienced a great 2 days and an opportunity to match my skills against the other guys who were a real friendly bunch. Without this competition I would never have had the chance to achieve this and probably the same for some of the other competitors. If there is a vociferous minority I think they have now been well and truly outdone my the vociferous majority.

Now where are the entry forms for the veteran class?

Hey Neil if we came within the first 21 do we get an invitation to come next year

Dont be put off guys this comp will mean a lot to new and old pilots for the future of UK heli flying
cheers and thanks again to all concerned

we all fail sometimes just as well if we didnt we would learn nothing modelhangar

What about the concept of a 'Standard' and 'Senior' class based on ability (not age )
Top 3 in 'Standard' not able to enter that class next year?
OR
a mini league and some more comps
Just a thought?

nice idea

I was in forth place this year..but would like to see a league table..where anyone in the country could enter.the likes of steve gerrard and kevin taggart/duncan osbourne/all the big boys and club flyers....and that way we would know whos top dude in the uk..no sportman/expert/masters class..just one class.. that way everyone would want to come and see the top dogs but also see the new 3d guys..when you look at a.h.a you know whos the man..and thats mark christy..why not have the same thing for 3d..i would like to see alot more done for 3d in general..maybe more comps..theres lots of room for it..there where a few 3d masters pilot at clubman 3d event..get them to compete..one competition a year isnt enough for the uk..any thought please.. in the masters you have pilots mixed up in different classes and i recon if they where all scored together in one class you could change the league table and really get our uk top dude
