Final day 3

The last day of the race was called off after 2 attempts due to poor winds and rain. We headed back to the hotel for the closing ceremony and banquet.

Group photo last day


In the end after a total of 8 round, the top 3 position were swept by the Taiwaness while the SMP team from Hongkong took the top team and Stanley Chan from HongKong won the best speed with a time of 32.75.

As for our team, our final positions are as follows :

Pang - 16th
Syming - 27th
Dennis - 26th
Weiyao - 22th

We accomplished what we came to do, by being here in Jeju to compete was a achievement in itself, considering the fact that we have no proper slope to even fly F3F. This race is a start and i hope it will continue in the future with more SG pilots joining us next year.

We hope the friendships we made with pilots from HK,Taiwan and Korea will continue to grow as this trip was not just about the race, it was a meet up with people around the region with similar passion.


We will like to express our utmost appreciation to our family and friends for their support.
Our Korean host for their kind hospitality , Mr Park and Mr Joon Lee, thanks.
The HK, TW and KR team for sharing their experiences and tips. We hope to see you guys again soon.

Day 2 competition

We enter day 2 of the competition today and the conditions were totally opposite of yesterday's weak winds. Today was truely what a F3F race should be like, howling winds great slope.

At one point the anemometer was maxed out at 30 knots.

Due to the strong winds there were many casualties, not just our team but the rest as well.

Dennis' vento and transmitted was hit early by a taiwaness plane on landing. Weiyao 's vento I lost control and crashed badly , almost totaled. Syming' mini blade wack the ground on a high speed run, my javelin's horizontal fin ripped on a landing. We managed to do some on field repairs and get going again. Well this was the kind of conditions that we came for, and it was worth it.


We managed to get better times today. All of us managed to go sub60s, a few of our runs went sub 50s!

Lunch before the race

On field Repairs

Taiwan team doing some on field repairs

Unfortunately Sy Ming's Mini Nyx had a bad landing during the practice flight before the race started. On field repair at its best. He went on to fly the mini nyx for 3 Round

Gatorade to the rescue

Good to go

Today's condition was very unpredictable, the winds came in gust. The slope was also not too good as the wind was blowing on the convex part and the sides does not have very good lift.


Pushing too hard, first casualty
Most of the race action were taken in video, they need to be process before posting later

We headed for another sumptuous dinner
