2011 WC-F3C Report 8

Mr. Hiroki Ito (Team JR) became a World Champion again at F3C Helicopter World Championship 2011 in Italy.

Flyoff round 1 and 2 were finished, and without waiting Flyoff round 3, Mr. Hiroki Ito (Team JR, Defending Champ) won the world title again.  This is his 4th consecutive title.  He got the highest possible scores on all 4 preliminary rounds, and challenged to the Flyoff round 1 and 2, he really knocked off all other finalists without any concern.  He performed the flights like perfect demonstration, got the highest possible scores on both flights.
All his flights including 4 Preliminary and 2 Flyoff (as of 26/August) were more than perfect with highest possible scores, and finally accomplished great historic achievement, 4 consecutive wins.

Thank you very much for all who supported Team JR and Team Japan.
