After 2 years away, the worlds most prestigious RC Helicopter Competition is BACK! Global 3D 2022!
Day 1 was met with near perfect weather and was full of great competition flights. As always, on the first day of the competition it is the “Set Maneuvers Day”
Each pilot chooses in advance his set maneuvers which range in difficulty and “K factor”. The harder the move, the higher the K factor multiplier which means the more points you get.
While not as entertaining as the music and freestyle flights, this is one of the most integral part of competition flying, which really separates a good pilot, from a “World Champion” pilot. The ability to do ultra complex maneuvers under a microscope with a panel of judges looking for any fault, dissymmetry, height change, or change of speed. A true test of skill.
Above is an example of one of the new set maneuvers for 2022. Rolling Rainbow Crown
