F3C WC in USA 2009 / Aug. 11th

Finals Round 1 & 2


Weather condition is nasty today.  Pilots are suffered by strong wind and rain heavy at times.

Mr. Ito used electric model and first flight was going very well, then suddenly the motor stopped! Fortunately, he was able to land okay.  We found it later that the reason of this accident was a problem with battery connection.   Thankfully his second flight had no problems and again he got 1,000 points there.

Now, Mr. Ito is top with 2,000 points and Mr. Scott Gray is second.
