Tired to remove and put nosecone and celo tape. So it's time to install magnetic switches ;-)

Rain and F3F

Weather forecast for weekend was awful, so just seven brave pilots met in Santa Coloma Slope for Winter Club Contest yesterday :-( I will not name anyone we missed...Arghhh!!! We stared some rain almost caught us from Barcelona and Ripollet. We suffered few light showers so we started Contest with rising wind in every round.

Luis Mejias didn't give us any chance, he won first round with lot of gap with other times and got 2 more 1.000 points. Distance between bases was about 85 meters to make safer our flights. Albert Ravell and me made our best flights in a Slope with amazing conditions in last round.

Next weekend 60" contest but I don't forget my f3b trainings. Colmar is closer what it seems... :-( Photos here.

First time

Whole F3B family met in Pla de Vent with a new guest: Albert Ravell. He has had his first f3b experience flying a Pike Precision. I hope Albert follow us and join to our f3b team. Is very hard to find new F3B Pilots in Spain so we will make our best to attrack him to dark side of glider classes :-P I continued to trim my FS4 with some distance flights. Remains me to trim launch and speed settings. Depending on weather forecast next weekend I will travel to Tolouse to visit Beep Beep Team. Photos.

F5... F5... F5... Crazy Mondays

Some people think F3B is in decline. Lot of new class like F3K, F5J,... give us lot of opportunities to compete in World Cup and Eurotour Contests. I am not agree F3B is in decline, maybe is not a major class like 10 years ago but is still a Big One. Just try to register in F3B contest in and you will make sure lot of people is practicing F3B. Colmar Registration was full in less than 30 seconds. Second contest, Kirchheim Open, lasted about 5 minutes.

Beep Beep...!!!

Fantastic weekend in Tolouse. It was a pitty because Sunday rose with rain :-( Anyway, we flew a lot on Saturday all day long. I am very thankfull with Roland Henninot, Sylvain Coloumb and Julien Gourdet for his help. Specially to Roland that gave me a lot of advises to improve my launches. We have strong wind all day so we broke some lines in first launches until we set thicker lines to make safe launches. A very positive experience, my plan until A Cañiza Open will be to make every month a train in France, I hope not to travel alone anymore next times... Dani, Carles, Sergi, Al, Dad, ...? ;-) Some photos here.

Ready for French F3B weekend

My French friends from Montauban and Beep Beep Team are waiting me for a good F3B weekend. We hope to fly all weekend near Tolouse. It's a good chance for me flying with good pilots. My idea is to travel to France once per month and be part of Beep Beep Team in F3B Contest. I will try to report tomorrow ;-)

Back to School

No f3b last weekend. I have made a grade for Royal Air Federation as Airshow Technician. Lot of time out of classroom. Now I have Junior Level so I have to feed up my CV to take a higher level. To pay my lack of flights I will go to Toulouse next weekend to train with Beep Beep Team. I am sure it will be a good experience. I hope to make some videos ;-)
