F3P PLANS PDF

Competitors fly a complex sequence of known manoeuvres to the highest degree of precision possible. Judges are positioned immediately behind the pilot and evaluate the quality of each manoeuvre. F3P models are allowed to be up to 2 meters Any powerplant may be used so long as it does not generate any kind of emissions, or exceed 42 volts. Construction materials generally used are foam, carbon fiber, and mylar. Two-cell lipos were used by all competitors for power supply, with the top models using counter-rotating coaxial motor systems.

The official website for the F3P World Championships is located here. Since the team funding only accounts for a small portion of the cost, we really need to rely on our fellow modelers to help us with fundraising to make up for the extra money to defray the costs that our team will incur. Greece is a long way from the USA and the cost of airfare alone is expensive and then we also have to ship our planes and support equipment over there as well.

Slovakia is a very long way from the USA and the cost of airfares alone are extremely expensive. We are also faced with the decreased buying power of the US dollar. We would like the US Team to be able to spend as much time as possible readying for the competition, and not have to worry about how they will pay for air tickets, transportation, and model shipping. This year has seen a huge reduction in the funding of FAI Teams by our National body and as a result we must rely on you — our fellow sail-planers to help us with fundraising to make up for the extra costs that sending this very competitive team will incur.

Competitors fly a complex sequence of known manoeuvres to the highest degree of precision possible. Judges are positioned immediately behind the pilot and evaluate the quality of each manoeuvre. F3P models are allowed to be up to 2 meters Any powerplant may be used so long as it does not generate any kind of emissions, or exceed 42 volts. Construction materials generally used are foam, carbon fiber, and mylar. Two-cell lipos were used by all competitors for power supply, with the top models using counter-rotating coaxial motor systems.

The F3P class is a team and an individual competition. FAI member countries may enter a team of up to 3 competitors as a national team for world and continental championships. Countries may also elect to send a Junior 18 years old or younger during the year of the contest team member. After takeoff, a maximum of two degree turns are permitted prior to commencing the aerobatic sequence.

An F3P sequence consists of six center manoeuvres and five end turnaround manoeuvres, all of which are judged. The manoeuvres include elements and combinations of lines, loops, rolls, knife-edge, stall turns, torque rolls, and tail slides. Each competitor will be entitled to four preliminary flights, of which the best three normalized scores will determine his placing. For each flight, the highest score will be set equal to 1, points, and the remaining competitors scores will be equate to a percentage of the highest score.

The total of the best three preliminary flights is normalized to 1, points and counted as a single score. This single score and the three finals scores give four normalized scores. The sum of the best three normalized scores is used to determine the final placements. The fourth score is only utilized in the case of a tie. Manoeuvres are assigned a difficulty factor K-factor, which is a multiplier applied to each manoeuvres depending on the complexity of the particular manoeuvre.

Judging is based on four basic criteria: precision or geometry , smoothness and gracefulness, positioning display , and size of manoeuvres. Points are subtracted for various types of defects observed by the judges, the severity of these defects, and the number of times these defects are observed.

Should the aircraft touch the walls, floor, or ceiling, the manoeuvre being performed is scored a zero. AFM is a timed 2 minute aerobatic flight choreographed to music. Scoring, from 0 — 10, is completed for each of three categories; flying style, artistic quality, and overall impression. Flying style includes the elements of precision, effective use of the full flight envelope, and innovation of new manoeuvres and manoeuvre combinations.

The highest scores for artistic quality will be earned when the music includes fast and slow segments and a broad dynamic range, and the flying is well choreographed and synchronized to match the music. Overall impression considers the use of the entire flight area, the use of special effects, interaction and reaction of the crowd, and the fluidity of transitions. Here you can see the 2 different sequences that will be flown during the World Championships in Poland.
