    RE: 2007 F3A World Championships


    ORIGINAL: 3DnSD

    Twas the night before the World Championships on RCU,

    The cast of characters had assembled and insults flew,

    Roses are red, violets are blue;
    Trolls are a pain,

    finish the rest yourself.... this is stupid.

    You might wish to 'check six' and decide if you're a better pilot than Arch; but I doubt it. Anonymous insults towards your betters does not make one more admirable. PLEASE, let's keep this to legitimate posts. Arch (a great guy, and a heck of a Masters pilot), made some comments on his IMPRESSIONS of a plane in the air. Personal preferences, only. Some people like chocolate, some vanilla. Nothing sinister in that, either.

    For me, congrats to Quique, Jason and Andrew. I remember seeing Quique do a 32 point roll three feet above an asphalt runway; seeing Jason knife to knife snaps right then left the length of the runway, and seeing Andrew fly an EMC2 as big as he was (almost)......... and am delighted for each of them. Personally, I feel Jason, too, is capable of a Championship, and suspect the same in Andy. Nationalistic pride? You bet, nothing wrong with that, either. I did, after all, point out that the French (with CPLR on the team) would be tough to beat. Congratulations to them, as well, they're nice guys in addition to being great pilots.

    I'm a retarded 5 year old with Daddy's computer, with the IQ of a field mouse and the spine of a jellyfish. Please give me attention. But not too much, I'm too scared to post on a toy plane forum with my real name, because you would all know that I couldn't fly a toy plane further than 5 feet without breaking it and the kids down the street routinely beat me up and take my milk money.

    My greatest contribution to this forum is taking stabs at people who could kick my sorry ass with a trainer. I feel very important now that I have soiled a good thread with my rage. I am angry that my father doesn't give me enough attention. Why doesn't he love me? Maybe it's because I'm a complete *******.

    Thank you for your valuable contribution 3d.

    RE: 2007 F3A World Championships


    ORIGINAL: patternrules

    In 83 our club hosted the Japanee team for a week before the worlds if I remember right they have or had goverment support, so giving a more of a National team meaning. This was one of my fondest memories in RC.
    The pilots was Yoshioka, Naruke, and Akiba, with Sushki as the backup and helper.
    Their planes was all new, never flown when they arrived so trim flights was first on the agenda. A funny thing that happened that really surprised me was Akiba was doing a first flight on one of his planes and after about 3 minutes into the flight (all was on the same frequency the classic JR, Futuba clash) Yoshika turned on, as you would expect in those days the plane went nuts, then he turned off and they laughs so hard and Akiba was going nuts ( don't know what they was saying but I'm sure there was some choice words).
    They was a real fun bunch to be around and I can't tell you how much fun we had at the airport with a 4 hour delay and them getting chargered twice for freight, the drinks started flowing thanks to Mr. Yamada's open bar or should I say wallet. Great group of guys.
    I still have gifts they sent me when they returned home.
    Like I said one of the best weeks I have had in RC.
    Steve Maxwell

    P.S. really proud of the us team and especially Andrew my old friend.
    Remember it quite well myself, but Steve was practically their personal cheuffeur. I remember drooling over the engines he scored from Yamada san. Those were indeed outstanding models in their finish and construction...all wood, just like now, and finished in (what else?) Jap tissue and dope.

    I remember Naruke going up to Galle's Arrow and tapping the fiberglass fuse for effect and then they all busted out laughing. Then back to business as Steve pointed out. Having been in Pattern only a couple years at the time, I was impressed with the professionalism they showed and the practice routines they had. They practiced at different directions to get crosswind practice in....seems obvious now but it wasn't back then. Heck we were just Sportsman fliers trying to get Straight flight out, Procedure Turn and Straight flight back right

    Hey Rob I flew reeds also. There were a lot of guys who couldn't make the transition from reeds to proportional.

    What I find interesting is that you predicted Matt wouldn't make the finals...for the first time in 40 years. With no animosity, just a prediction. You got lit up pretty hard for it.

    And you were right.

    RE: 2007 F3A World Championships

    These were the most exciting finals. The top 5 all flew great and it was close indeed. They made the strong crosswind look non existent to us mere mortals! The results are based on pilot skills (training/talent/preparation), equipment (preparation), and some luck and politics. So if CPLR had a deadstick it is all part of the game and a fair result. Our F3A sport is very similar to F1 in that aspect. We were so happy for QQ's win long overdue and it couldn't happen to a nicer guy, gentleman, and ambassador for our sport.

    Great job Jason you will be champ some day. Great job Andrew and thanks for the 2 servos you gave to John our team member after he almost lost his airplane in round 1.
    Thank you John and Geoffrey for all your hard work and getting the back-up Synergy ready allowing me to still compete at the last minute (as I lost my only airplane, Mantis EX, on 2 November). I will never forget your effort and am forever grateful.

    Congrats team ECU your improvement is remarkable!

    For the record.....for the first time ever team SUR beat team NED the old colonial mother country.......it did help that it was 3 of us against 1! Congrats Danny to making the semis for the 1st time!

    Brian – It’s just not fair.

    Bryan – I hear Chip is going to be ready for next year – you call round 4 flying?



    -M – Oh my, welcome to the hood. This is a lot of venom for someone with over 2000 unpaid RCU advertisements. Because of my job which does preclude the taxpayer from delivering a lifestyle that would offer as benefit such time and luxury to create fraudulent or faux quotes (lets build on Rusty’s vocabulary lessons); I do not know how you created a faux quote. In the future please do not transcribe your therapy sessions into fraudulent quotes of other RCU’ers that opine. I’m sure the readership is disappointed in your psycho-self portrait.

    RE: 2007 F3A World Championships

    Moving on...ignoring the drivel of anonymous malcontented morons....

    I couldn't be happier with the performance of the American world team. And I will be the first to admit, QQ suprised me. I take NOTHING away from his flying or dedication, I just had my reservations and would have predicted a couple of others maybe edging him. Obviously he did suprise a few people and now is world champion! And I can't say anything but congradulations to a great modeler, a great person and a great pilot.

    Jason is always in the mix. I have had the pleasure of judging him locally for about 2 years and I'm always amazed at his natural ability. I know he was very focused and how bad he wanted it this time. I bet he's tired of "there's always next time"...but it's true. He's still young in the grand scheme of things and I would bet he'll take that championship trophy before it's all over with.

    Andrew....WOW. I judged Andrew's first round at the team trials this year, and he clearly outflew everyone else. I knew he was a good pilot but this level of flying was outstanding. For him to make it to the team and then make the finals his first time at the worlds, well I hope he is as happy as the rest of us. Because I know that pretty much everyone in the US is cheering right now. STILL. I know I am!!!!

    As for the rest of the fantastic pilots in the contest, congradulations to you all!!!! It was a heck of a show from here. I just hate that we have to wait 2 years for the next one! You guys inspire the rest of us to no end. We know that most of us will never have the opportunity to fly at the world championship. But thanks to all of you, we have something to aim for.

    Congrats to you ALL for a fantastic showing!

    RE: 2007 F3A World Championships

    Jason is always in the mix. I have had the pleasure of judging him locally for about 2 years and I'm always amazed at his natural ability. I know he was very focused and how bad he wanted it this time. I bet he's tired of "there's always next time"...but it's true. He's still young in the grand scheme of things and I would bet he'll take that championship trophy before it's all over with.

    There definitely is a next time for Jason.... Hell....Quique just proved it!!
