sorry once again for the pb with the results, we have managed with this competition to show our spreadsheet has errors when doing more than 20 rounds. Thanks for all the friends who typed them back on various sites and spreadsheets to double/triple check.
full results accessible there:
today, “only” 6 more rounds flown.
several plane crashes unfortunately.
We had to cancel round 7 (ie: round 18 of the competition) after a dozen of pilots as the clouds suddenly arrived, wind turned north and 3 planes had to land down the mountain. Some damage to them.
A little shower came a few minutes later, so stopping the day was the best choice.
tomorrow should be sunny and south wind again, more flights to come.
A long and sunny day this friday!
11 rounds flown in 8-13m/s wind, with 30 pilots.
best runs in 33sec.
temporary ranking is as below:
and the competition is over…..
another 4 rounds flown, so a total of 14 rounds for this edition.
many thanks to everyone (pilots, judges, course directors, sponsors). I will make a full report ASAP but first of all, here are all the results:
F3F_TendeFAI2014 – Full Results
Meeting at 9AM with little north wind but forecast was south so we were already at the south slope with the breakfast for every pilot and organizers.
2 rounds flown, one third that could not be validated due to to many reflies and eventually no more wind.

Let’s get ready, charge your gears, prepare your ballasts.
Meeting will be as announced at 9AM on friday, with registration and end of free flights at 10AM so we can start if wind is also on time.
once again, there is a red light at the tunnel before arriving, so be ready for up to 20minutes of wait if you are very unlucky in front of the stop.
Preparez vous, chargez vos modeles, prenez bien vos ballasts.
Le rendez-vous est confirmé vendredi matin a 9h, avec l’enregistrement et la fin des vols libres a 10h afin de lancer le concours si le vent est bien a l’heure egalement.
Encore une fois, n’oubliez pas qu’il y a un feu rouge au tunnel, preparez vous a jusqu’a 20minutes d’attente si vous n’avez pas de chance devant le stop.
A few refly and many 60s, best time 48. Wind is now back in the 5+ and already a 52 by Stéphane Riccobono as he opens the 6th round.
…. New slope. 5-6 m/s, launching the fifth round on a kew slope facing wind perfectly.
Second round over. Clouds still there now and then. Unfortunately, sky got locked and Martin Ulrich lost his plane during landing and crashed. So sad. Best time for Philippe Lanes, 39.
