August 23, 2021: RC Soaring

By Wally Adasczik

F3K Soaring

F3K started with 28 contestants. Hand Launch is so cool and small thermal flying translates to reading good air when you move up to the larger Unlimited/F5J ships. There were a few world and national champions in the contestant pool! Folks come from all over the US for this event. 

I pulled into the IAC and took a gorgeous picture of the sunrise.

Scores for the end of Day 1 are provided below. The plan is to fly 14 rounds and then a round of flyoffs with 8 participants. The author actually made the first page!

The F3K crew picture. You really cant find a better bunch of folks for sure.

Great to see DLG well represented at the Nats. I used to fly a lot of DLG hand launch, but have retired my two DLGs
