8th annual, 2014 Beijing F3K Open

20140823 Beijing F3K Open (2)

Big congrats to Tang Zhigao, Team ArmSoar pilot hailing from Shanghai, for winning the longest running F3K Competition in China! Listening to the live broadcast from the office here, it seems like it was a really intense battle, with a 4 point deficit coming in 2nd at the end of the prelims (1st 7000, 2nd 6996). From the sounds of it, the winds were still but the sink was unbearable at times, with a number of pilots having to re-fly the 60 second flight in Task D – Ladder – , and with Zhigao being the only pilot making the full 2 minutes!

Another great contest by a prominent Team ArmSoar pilot, add that together with some of the wins in South China and the USA,we’re looking at almost half a dozen gold medals so far this year! Keep up the good work team, and get practicing for the upcoming Asia Pacific F3K Open just around the corner :)
