There''s good news and theres bad news... lets go for the bad news first. as you may have noticed, the mails have dried up a little ...this is because my laptop has packed up.
The good news is that we have got walters phone to connect to the net, so I can do some very basic reporting in this way.
Right, so lets cut to the chase... what's been happening... as you may know by now, we have just completed round 3 so we are 3/4 through the prelims now. cplr seems to be dominating the p schedule so far, with akibba and qq trailing by a bit. we are still trying to understand what the judges are looking for, as this year the trend has moved on from argentina. the guys are flying much bigger and a little faster, but it looks like the big thing is the geometry of the manouvers and the legs between the rolls must be of equal leangth.
There is no way yet of predicting the pilots going into the f's yet. this is because the are 4 flight lines opperating every day with 4 different judging pannels,... each of which we will fly infront of only onnce,. this means that until all 4 rounds are finnished, there is no way to compare the results.
That's all for now as it ia very difficult to see the screen and type on the phone
