The 8th match of the Hong Kong F3F League 2014 was held in Kin Ma Leng
on August 17th. CD was Ray Leung and helpers were Lai Kwong Leung and
Ken Ko. Wind is usually not very good in the summer morning and
forecast of the day was not good too. Ray decided to delay the start
time to 10:00am. We still had to wait for the wind and the competition
was finally started at 10:45am.
The wind in the first round just reached the standard and there were
some reflights. Fortunately the condition was getting a little better
later and the competetion ran smoothly. Wind was about 3 to 5m/s and
there were thermal influence. Wing Wong's week after week practice
starts to pay off! This is his second Champion in 2014 after
winning in the 7th match. Congratulations! Leung Chi Sang, who is
preparing the World Cup competition to be held in Slovakia in this
September, is in his high mood and got both the second place and the
fastest time title. As usual, Ken Ko always likes to give us a
surprise! He started at the 14th place in round 1, but ended up the
third place in the 5th and also the last round!
There were total 22 pilots joined the competition and it ended at about
4:30pm. Wind was calm to moderate South Westerly in the hot summer day.
The fastest time made was Leung Chi Sang's 49.06 seconds. The most
spectacular of the day, however, was Philip Leung forgot to turn on the
receiver and let go his Alliaj! "Ooh, got a one way ticket to the
blues", Alliaj thought ... But the head wind turned the well trimmed
Alliaj back and after turning a few big circles it landed safe on the
slope. Maybe next time, Alliaj!
