Gentlemen in Sweden

From:     per grunnet
At the E36 contest in Sweden June 27 I went to the fly-off with two German fliers, Karl-Heinz Haase and Mike Amthor.
We were allowed to decide when we wanted to start the five minute fly-off round - and we made an agreement to throw our models at the same time. Karl-Heinz counted, and we launched. All models climbed well - but mine D/T'ed two seconds after the engine stopped, and it landed at 30 seconds.
I had forgotten to reset the D/T-time after a trim flight with 5 seconds motorrun! Damn ...!
To my pleasant surprise Karl-Heinz and Mike came to me and said: We cancel this flight and ask the contest director permission to refly - and please remember to set your timer this time!
First I said thank you, but no - but they insisted, and then I said OK.
The contest director said no - quite rightly - so we did not make a reflight eventually.
This episode highlights what I love about free flight. We are competitors - and we are friends. Karl-Heinz and Mike showed sportsmanship in a way you will probably not find in other sports!

It is entirely up to you to select the day during the World Champs, when
you will go out for VSM. Sunrise will be around 6:15 and when you think,
that all W#Cups and the W#champs start at 7:00, you understand, that this

days leading up to the World Championships in Mongolia will be a good
opportunity to trim your models and make test flights in preparation for
the Fly Offs at the World Championships & World Cups. 

Flights on several days and making several VSM sessions will be also

to all, who are not visiting Mongolia th info:  you can also fly VSM
anywhere and anytime else in the world.  especially in Middle Europe ,
where in few weeks the harvest of cornfields start, is in end of July/
beginning the best time to go out in the morning for your personal
experience in VSM flying.  See my
report  from my last  year VSM flying.
I will wait excellent, calm weather and go again.
