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!
