First, Ito has talent on loan from God.
Second, few understand the degree to which the Japanese practice for these things. They practice to get it perfect, and then they practice so they always execute it perfectly. The latter is what makes them so good. When you see Ito go out, it's like he KNOWS he is going to do it all damn near perfectly. He is truly mind boggling to watch.

Our guys are right in the thick of it, and Nick's F schedule aeros are always extremely good, sometimes better than his P aeros. I wish them all the best.

Ito and Nick

God poured talent on them, took a coffee break and forgot the spout left open. And HE saw it was good and said: let them be amazing!

As Ben said, best is yet to come on the P schedule.

Ito is definitely a machine. I remember the level of detail the Hirobo guys would go to on the machines. The pilot had at least one full time mechanic and they would get a complete assortment of servo gears and match them up so they would have the most precise and slop free servo. It may take twenty sets of gears, but that is the level they went to!

Not taking a single thing away from Ito, but in competitions where you have a multi time champion the judges are 'seasoned' into believing (subconsciously) this one person is the best period and everyone else must perform to that person's level. I think with the large number of judges you reduce that influence.

In the sound quality world there were typically only two or three judges (one at smaller events) who would determine the world champion. It was tough because the three time champion was the reference and it was almost impossible to score higher than he did, ESPECIALLY if you went before him because they just assumed he would get a 10 out of 10, so they would score you lower to give them wiggle room. Not saying this happens here, but that crazy human element does seem to creep in there time to time

*** I personally don't think so in fact I think the judges were tougher on scoring us top pilots when I was competing on a world class level. (But that's just my opinion)

Round 4
Wow,what a difference a day makes. The wind calmed down to down today and Nick ripped off a 239.5 and Curtis banged out a 255 to win the round. Daniel flew later in the day and scored 215.5, VERY respectable. Final results were not available when I left the field but it looks like both Nick and Curtis will be in the flyoffs competing for the individual title. Since both Nick and Curtis fly "F" schedule very well I think we should do well both as a Team and individually. It was refreshing to see someone actually beat Ito in a round so glad Curtis got it together at the right time.
We will be at the practice field all day tomorrow working on "F" and seeing what we have. I know Nick pumped about making the finals and Curtis....... well is Curtis and WILL be ready.
Hopefully will have more pictures on Facebook and will break out the big camera.

Practice day
Today was a practice day for all the guys that made the finals. We spent most of the morning and afternoon with Nick and Curtis flying contest flights and Cliff and I critiquing then, then they worked on areas where they had problems, all in all, a good days work.
Nick is up 3rd in the morning and Curtis is up 12th. We'll be at the field about 7:30 and he should fly about 8:30 local time. As an aside, the very first F3N (3D) World Championships are going on simultaneously so we will fly a round of F3C then F3N. Championship will be decided on Saturday and awards given out that evening. Hopefully we'll get out of Warsaw Sunday morning and be home Sunday night.
