OUTSTANDING!!!!
It's as if the film has shot high speed and slowed down to a stand still.
This is paradigm shift IMO.

It's all so fascinating to watch and see the different approaches and techniques. The Americans need to slow down... it's like watching 70's pattern in comparison.
Bruchmann, Lappi & Pauzuolis have introduced a type of flying like something from another planet. Outstanding so far.
Such a marvellous new side to the sport, it's influence is so evident watching Bruckmann flying in the F3A euro champs.
Whole new world.

The following link takes you to one of Joseph Szczur's flights.

The videography is much tighter on the model than the live action was allowing you to see the model close up. At its conclusion thumbnails are presented allowing you instantaneous access to any pilots flight.

Thanks to Jurgen Heilig for putting these on Youtube.

Best of luck to Joseph and all the contestants at the upcoming F3A WC in Argentina.

My opinion is the slow flight is just a tad to slow. The downlines are faster than level flight. Also hovering before stall turn just looks wrong. Maybe it's supposed to be that way. I didn't look at the call sheet.

Indeed, mind you... in Bruckmann defence, he does fly the full scale F3A schedule in a vicious wind at almost twice the speed he flys indoor. The next world championships will see the paradigm shift. Are people prepared? We'll see.

Maybe I agree with you about the speed. The slowness of the pace may challenge the patience of the judges and audience. On the other hand, it is very magical and dream-like, as if flying through a very dense kind of air, like an atmosphere made of sulfur hexafluoride.

I agree that hovering at the top of a stall turn doesn't look right, it lacks fluidity, makes the flight look jumpy.

The slow pace I like esp the constant speed of the 3 winners.

I'm not a fan of snaps. Can you tell? LOL
