    2005 F3A World Championships

    Since no one has started a thread yet about it, here's a start.

    I'll be flying my new Impacts:

    Composite-ARF Impacts (only mod was removable rudders and my color scheme)
    Hacker C-50 14XL Competition 6.7:1
    Hacker Master Acro-90 Competition
    Thunder Power 5300's
    APC-E 22x11
    Tru-Turn 3.5" spinner with lightened back plate
    Shulman Aviation 6V Regulator
    Thunder Power 730 2-cell Rx pack
    Kirbys Kustom Graphics
    Futaba 9Z WC2
    9151- Ailerons
    9650- Elevators
    9351- Rudder
    149DP Rx (soon 148DP)
    Dubro 2 1/4" light wheels, 1" foam tail wheel and accessories
    Vel-tye hook and loop
    J'TEC clamp locks
    Hyde Mount
    Central Hobbies (shirts)
    Weight- 10 3/4-11lbs (no scale)

    We leave here on Monday afternoon and arrive in Paris at 10:30am Tuesday. We're gonna play tourists for a few hours before heading down to Saint-Yan. If I had an internet connection (and time) while in France, I'd post some pics and stories/results...but I don't/won't. Maybe Team Finland will take up the slack again.

    The official Worlds site:
    http://www.world-championships-f3a.com/

    Here is a link to the Brazilians daily reports from the Worlds:
    http://www.gsamultimidia.com.br/aero/f3a

    That’s all I’ve got for now. See you in France…

    Good luck Jason, but I think the Brazilian team will make the surprise. Fabio Trento is a Great Pilot.

    RE: 2005 F3A World Championships

    Where are all the Team pics? Brazil, Canada, Finland.... Individual pics?... if I was home I could at least get 2 of the US Team memebers pics up... maybe Marcelo can post a pic of Chip for me. Sean is now flying a Genesis due to an unfortunate meeting with bad luck and Mother Earth.

    I'm "borrowing" this pic from the Matt's site. And "borrowing" from Composite-ARF for Frazers.

    RE: 2005 F3A World Championships

    Jason,
    Seems kind of funny to me. I was just getting serious into pattern around the last Worlds and you decided to go from IC to electric. There were some in the US pattern community that were ready to hang you from the highest tree. Now an electric 2m ship is almost a must have at your caliber. Times are changing.

    Good luck to you and the rest of Team USA.
    Regards

    Hello to everyone.
    Here I'm attaching from Spain the pictures of the new Camodel biplane that Chip will fly in this WC, her name is Scandalous. It's installed with a Hacker+ThunderPower Batteries+Aaitronics. Tomorrow I'll be in St. Yan and I'll try to send you more news and pictures from there.

    Eric,

    Thanks for trying. Had another go but still having problems. Mostly I get a message saying 'Site Not Available'. Occasionally I can get through to the Home Page but neither the English Language option or French language option will download beyond that.

    All my other regular sites are working normally. Have checked my Internet Connection Settings and Security Settings and all seems OK.

    Remains a mystery.

    Try the direct link rather than through the .com redirect.

    Wolfman!
    High hopes for you and all the team!
    Great idea to start the thread with all the info on your setup!!
    It is indeed impressive, and remenicent of your combo at the '04 NATS...
    If you are any where near 04 form, you are going to KNOCK 'EM DEAD!!!
