Thank you to BARCS

Recommended Posts

Richard Swindells

Just a quick thank you to every BARCS member and of course the committee for the generous contribution towards Hayley and my travel funds for the F3k world champs. It made a huge difference to our preparations, meaning I could spend more time practicing, rather than making models and parts to fund the journey.

The practice paid off and I managed joint 1st in the pre - competition (officially third as 3 of us tied, so count back of dropped round counted and I dropped a second on one turnaround... but 1st has a better ring to it!)

The main event was equally successful, making the flyoff and then getting 4th overall (again 1 second quicker turnaround would have seen the podium!)

The winner was Alex Hewson from New Zealand. It was obvious very early in the pre competition that Alex was the man to beat, and his skill and consistency kept right through the competition so it was great to see the best pilot win after such tight scores.

I would also like to thank Laurynaus from Stream Team Models (Lithuania) who provided me with a prototype of their new DLG, the NXT. I flew this in every round and it definitely made the difference on more than one occasion.

Now time to practice those turn-arounds.

Well Done to you Richard and Hayley, and all of the GBR Team.

Just an ordinary member, but I am glad that BARCS contributed slightly to the final result.

The commentary on FQ kept me on the edge of my seat!

:)

Yes indeed, well done Richard, very ably assisted by Hayley who I know put in a lot of background work with Team Shirts etc.

Glad BARCS are able to contribute the success and growth of F3K in the UK and our reputation as a competitive nation.

Of course the real effort comes from you guys and all the pilots and the Team Manager Mike Fantham, need to be congratulated on a good performance allround.
