Hi.

I had a great time and superb reception by all. What I found was 100% of every one were so happy with everything. Not a sorry word on anything at any time.
The atmosphere was the tops and those poor lads who broke a few helis kept smiling and carried on supporting their fellow competitors..

Demos were cool too. Steven and Ade law and Dunclon were really 'kicking'.

Top man Neil for thinking of the idea and making it happen. And reeee spect to Paul Lison for putting it together with Neil and lets not forget another guy who worked out how to score and structure the manouevres and create the software to score the event flawlessly. NIGEL REVILL.

Such a shame we cannot have another soon.. I'll be there next year.
Watch out for the DVD that Lance DV is going to put together..
No ideas when but not to far away. Well worth getting..

Simon.

Almost. The only issue I had was not using the PA system for the callers. Would have been nice to be able to hear the manouvers being called instead of having to guess the manouver, although most were recognisable I know Neil said they couldn't afford a second PA, but they could have just used a long mike lead for the one they had. Would've been better than nothing. Only a little gripe, and it didn't spoil the day.

Looking forward to the DVD, any idea how long it will take?

Just a quick note to say well done to Bruce and Gareth for getting 1st and 2nd place in a truly awsome event, also not forgetting all the other competitors that made the event what it was.
Also a big thankyou to the organizers for being so understanding with the problems we were haveing.
Raptorboy1 and myself will be back with the clan next year to try again.
This was our first comp and we sure learnt the highs and lows of competeing.
Big Big thankyou to a guy named John (beasty).
This was the guy that loaned us his heli to compete with, someone said that he covered his face when Adam did his Chaos launch. LOL
Guys like this make this hobby worth while.
Also thanks to all the members of NMHC who made the trip to support us through the highs and lows
See you all at the Masters
Nigel

Had to add my congratulations to Neil and the rest of the Clubman 3D team for a terrific event.

Some extremely talented and committed flying from everyone and we were delighted to have supported the event. Looking forward to next year now!

As for Bruce, well done, and congratulations on winning a year's supply of Magnum Fuel - look forward to seeing you flying again soon

Hi.

I'd like to turn the thanks another way if I may and suggest a thanks to "Dodger" for travelling such a distance and supporting the event in such a superb way.
These events are dead on their feet without the vision and support from such companies as skyline. And to not only support the event with product, but to also spend the time being there is the best.

And I understand flying that Turbine takes some doing. (only what I am told by a pilot who had a go).

Didn't know that "Dodger" himself is a budding 3d pilot aswell.

Wicked.

Simon,

I understand that now that Dodger has his B Test he wants to enter the next Clubman 3D event ;-)

Cheers to everyone for a SUPERB event and I completely agree that it's people like Neil, Paul and their team as well as the sponsors like Roger that made the event so worthwhile.

Looking forward to the next one!

Cheers,
Nigel

Just looked at the results again and realised I came last in the freestyle round apart from Bruce, who crashed part way through!!! Definitely going to stick to scale, total brain fade when it came to my turn. Many thanks to Colin McGinn for calling for me and telling me to do more stuff, which I didn't. All the stuff I practiced at my field seemed to have disappeared as soon as I took off......bummer.
Anybody wanna buy a Freya and Sceadu... must sell due to turbine project

Hey a least you gave it a go. Top marks for that dude.

Did like your Defender, looked real good in the air.

I got a Century Hughes 500 with Shuttle mechanics in it, bit on the small side & no rocket pods, it needs rocket pods.

Hi DenisS

I do hope that your thoughts on doing scale only from now on are not totally serious.. All in good humour please?

If this comp was your first then it is very expected to loose all sense of normal flying. Some pilots find it less of a pressure than others. But unless you have written down some things to do, it is usual to totally forget all those good tricks you normal do well at the field.

As you put, you do lots of things when at your own field and are comfortable. How about considering the event as a positive experience and carry on enjoying your 3d flying along side a scale aspect?
Enter again next year, enjoy the event and see how you get on then.

Well done to ALL who had the bottle to get out there infront of us 3 critical judges and knowlegable spectators and perform..


REEEE SPECT.

Hi Simon, would it be possible to post a short explaination on how the scoreing works.
Not that I am questioning it but more to give me and others a better understanding of how it all works out to the final result.
If pilots have a better knowledge on the scoreing it would raise the level if a pilot is knowing what he has to do to impress rather than guessing what he has to do.
thanks
Nigel

I understand the interest in how clubmans 3d scoring system works.

My envolvment was being asked to judge which I did and hope I was fair to all.
But I had no envolvement what so ever in how they created the system and how it was structured and processed.

Publically my envolvment in 3dmasters is deap in that I was involved in how that works. We were asked that very question many times. So for that event I have written a large document on how best to prepare which took alot of effort to create and is given to succesful entries to that competition. I could do this as I have been involved in the conception of that event and how it would work.. But with Clubman 3d I have had no such envolvment.

Regarding clubman 3d, the person or people to ask are Paul Lison who created how it worked and the forms I was given and Nigel Revill who created the software and worked one to one with Paul to create the full scoring methods.

If either Paul or Nigel are on this forum, can I suggest they address this question as I am not involved in the conception enough to be explaining such. Indeed I have no idea how Nigel worked the system..
Hope you understand..

Over to Paul / Nigel / Biggen.

ADE
even when sport flying I think "hang on I didnt do this, that and the other" at the end of a flight.
its even worse infront of a crowd!
In your case, I think all might agree, it did not show.

Without doubt next year we need to see you in Experts 3dmasters.

Thanks Simon maybe one of the guys who thought up the system could answer the question.
Also i didnt know that the way it was scored was different to the 3DM other than the non k factor for the set manouvers.
But im very intregued to know how you guys score .
Thanks
Nigel

Craneyum.

I think they did something call "normalising" which I am not familiar with and how it reflects.
And I think there was some sort of multiplier (k factor) applied in the set manouvers round but that might be wrong?.

For sure this system is very different to 3dmasters.
I think it is true to say that the difference in competitions required a different system. I do think it worked fautlessly for clubman 3d.
