|Extreme pilot championship|
This 1 day event will include freestyle demos to music, IMAC demonstration flights, and a Great Hobbies intro challenge open to all pilots (see home page for details - no practice is necessary! Try your hand at aerobatics). Pilots who enter the Intro Challenge will be eligible for the draw of a 100cc airplane donated by Great Hobbies, to be held at the end of the summer. Top entrants will receive Great Hobbies prizes at the event, as well.
2012 Freestyle rules (this event is a demo and the rules are optional - the freestyle competition is postponed to the Quebec Finals)
· Each flight will be worth 36 points
· Your performance of the required maneuvers will be worth 1/3 of your points (12 points).
· The rest of your flight will be judged based on specific criteria and will be worth 2/3 of your points (24 points).
Required maneuvers (12 points)
You must choose a total of 3 out of the 8 suggested maneuvers as your required maneuvers. These can be chosen from the list of ‘easy’ maneuvers and/or ‘hard’ maneuvers (you can mix and match). Each “easy” maneuver can earn up to 2 points. Each “hard” maneuver can earn up to 4 points. Therefore if you choose 3 easy maneuvers, even if you execute them perfectly you may earn a maximum of 6 points in this section. If you choose 3 hard maneuvers, if you execute them perfectly you may earn the maximum of 12 points. (Pilot tip: this means that getting half marks on a ‘hard’ maneuver is equivalent to getting full marks on an ‘easy’ maneuver)
Required maneuvers to choose from (choose 3)
Non-required maneuvers (24 points)
The specific criteria used to judge the overall flight is as follows (k values correspond to relative weight):
o Full use of the airspace (using all areas of the sky to their full advantage) (k=2)
o Optimal positioning (placing the maneuvers for optimal judging and viewing by the spectators) (k=2.5)
o Harmony (coordinating your flight to the music, including synchronizing with the beats and matching the mood (slow/fast) of the music) (k=5.5)
o Precision (geometry of the figures, accurate stopping of rolls and point rolls) (k=5)
o Complexity (difficulty level of the maneuvers executed) (k=5)
o Variety (many different types of maneuvers) (k=4) Notes
