2010 3D Deflection and Freestyle Event: Wrap Up

The first event of the season is behind us, and it was a great success, setting the pace for the rest of the year. There were about 25 die hard pilots taking Friday off to come out and fly. Saturdays turnout was even stronger with 41 pilots.  Although it was windy at times, this did not stop any of the seasoned pilots from showing their right stuff.  The  event was incedent free, with only a couple of deadsticks.  Many photos from the event are up in the gallery, and many more are rolling in, so check back often. Speaking of Rolling in,  it seems that the most popular maneuver out there was the rolling harrier, and almost all the polots were able and willing to demonstrate their proficiecy in this maneuver….in 12-15mph wind. 

Thanks to the sponsors, Ace Hobbies, DW Foamies, Desert Aircraft, Air Wild, Hobbie Club USA, E-Power, and 3-D Hobby Shop for making this event possible. The 35% Yak courtesy of Thunder Tiger/ACE went to Ground Pounder Bill. The 29% Edge 540 courtesy of Airwild Hobbies went to 10 year old Robbie and the DA-50R went to Jason Benson. Also, a huge thanks goes out to volunteers for making sure this event was pulled off without a glitch.

We’re also in the process of tracking down the complete list of plaque winners, so check back here soon for the results.
