Highlights Tuesday 11th August

Summer has arrived in time for the World Champs, perfect conditions for a great day of competition.

Strong sunshine and good thermal activity did not favour any particular designs, and the competition focused on fast launches and timely, accurate landings.

First three places after three rounds:

1. WURTS Joe (USA) 2994
2. HOFFMAN Peter (AUT) 2991
3. VAGNER Michal (CZE) 2990

Where is my score??? Tony Beckett and his merry band are inside working it out...

Doug Pike (Canada) after launching in the second round. Two 991's in first two rounds - consistent!

Michael Volz demonstrating his servos. One or two trade stands in evidence.

Another group starts the Long March to the flightline.

From the Ukraine, Alexander Nadashkevic with Astra, and Vladimir Gupalenko with Sharon.
