Report on an F5J postal comp from Gert Nieuwoudt

One of our local SA pilots Rudolf won the international postals F5J competition held the past weekend. His score was:
Flight #...Flight points-Motor run (30% Worked in) +Landing point=Total
1: 600 (10:00) - 8.1 (27sec) + 30 = 621.9
2: 597 (09:57) - 7.5 (25sec) + 27 = 616.5
3: 599 (09:59) - 8.7 (29sec) + 27 = 617.3
Total: 1855.7

Excellent score Rudolf and well done!. Considering the terrible wind on this weekend this shows what can be done. Rudolf is flying a Poly Sergio with Sp400 motor.

Hope this will serve as a motivator for the rest of the local F5J clan to crawl out of the woodworks again. Where are you WHRF and KZN pilots?
