Hong Kong F3F League 2012 Match 9
September 9, 2012

The match 9 of League 2012 was held on September 9. Wind Guru forecast was calm in the morning and about 4m/s South Easterly in the afternoon which suggested Leung King would be the competition site. CD Angus decided to delay the start time of the competition to 10:30am. Once again, Wind Guru showed its accuracy. The wind was barely enough to start the competition at about 11, and the competition officially started at 11:15am. There are total 19 pilots joined.

Wind condition of the first 3 rounds was not good, but still managed to support the race with flying time of about 60 to 80 seconds. Philip and his Alliaj performed very well and lead the the race in the first half. Wind was then picking up after the 4th round and rised to about 8m/s in the last 3 rounds. Leung King is just an amazing site that the wind is usually strongest in the late afternoon. The game was getting interesting now! Flying times were close between each pilot and the fastest time was revised every round! Finally, 8 rounds were completed and the competition ended at about 5:15pm. Angus' 41.93 seconds in the last round made him the fastest man of the game. CM won the game with his consistant performance, Angus the second and Philip the third. Congratuations to all the winners!
