    A Greek taking things seriously[] Whats happening to the world?
    I blame it on the Eurovision Song Contest.

    Hey Bla Bla,

    How does it feel like to fly R/C planes using snow skids all year round in the cold, dark and icy environment of your otherwise lovely country?? Believe me, there are Greeks who are VERY VERY SERIOUS about R/C flying......

    OK, they where the prelims but what about that Grandad Matt in 5th?
    Outstanding. At this level, at his age. Standing ovation.
    Wasn't one of you guys beating him up some pages back?

    RE: 2007 F3A World Championships

    Looks like another top ten finish for Wolfgang. I'd have to research this, but I think he's placed in the top ten in EVERY WC since 1971 [X(][X(] I bow to the master...
    Congratulations to team USA!! ... and all the competitors!
    How did the bipes do in the wind???

    Is anybody making a DVD of the 2007 WC for sale?

    Not that I don't want to bow to the master but it isn't over yet.

    When it comes to being in the top 10 since 1971, according to his own homepage this is true. In fact, again according to his homepage, mr Matt has *never* placed lower than 10th on a world championship.

    However, the three "worst" results have been in the most recent championships. Moreover, it is interesting to note that he always manage to qualify for the finals, but has been at place 10 in the two most recent championships, indicating (there are 10 pilots in the finals) that he focuses on practising the P- and F-schedules.

    Or is it a sign of age? Maybe flexibility and adaptibility is more worth than experience when flying the unknown final schedules.

    If the wind is blowing like stink, experience experience at this level will be worth will be worth millions. I'm soiling my pants at a club level with a slight cross wind breeze!

    And What about those Aresti HONEYS!!!!![sm=thumbs_up.gif][sm=bananahead.gif][X(]

    Actually Wolfgang placed in the top 10 since his very first World Champ back in 1967 (which Phil Kraft won), that's 40 years ago ! He was 17 and flying for less than 1 1/2 years. In 1971 (Doylestown Aerolympics) he had already two World Championships behind him (1967 - France & 1969 - Germany)

    And don't forget Matt's airplane designs. They've always been top-notch: Atlas, Arrow, Joker, Smargd, etc.

    Ι did not think that Fidel Castro was coming from Norway....I did not even think that Michael Moore was also coming from Norway....Norway should have many local heros and great aeromodellers like bla bla.

    Happy sking Napapiri mate... and don't forget to buid that igloo for your dog, summer is coming soon....

    Best regards and sorry for the intervention let's carry on the conversation about the F3A Worlds which is very interesting.

    RE: 2007 F3A World Championships

    One of the things about sports like auto racing and pattern flying, is that as long as you have your health, you can participate and compete at a very high level, even as you get up in years.

    However despite this, there are probably more younger pilots than older pilots flying at world class levels, but I attribute this to the fact that it's only in recent years (like the past thirty years or so ..) that kids have been given the chance to get into the sport at a very young age. Chip Hyde is a good example of this, as is Andrew Jesky. When kids gets this kind of opportunity, they get a chance to start learning to fly just when their brains are the most plastic, and consequently they can develop skills that are much harder to aquire when you're older.

    I agree . . having seen Bill fly a couple of times, it begs the question . . "How good are the top 10?" ! !

    One of Bill's flights at the Masters this year, I struggled to find downgrades, and I think I am fairly critical !

    Cheers, Jeff
