From David:

I thought I would shoot you a quick summary from the weekend. It was insane.

This was the third year for the Gator F3B contest held in Cocoa Florida March 1st-3rd. It was the second year in a row that it was the first contest of the world cup series. Attendance was up this year, with teams from Germany and Chile, as well as the US F3B team; 23 pilots total. All of our practice paid off as the US team did well flying distance, and I was lucky enough to finish first after 6 full rounds and an additional speed round. Other highlights included smashing the previous world record for F3B speed set by Pasi Väisänen in June 2008 of 12.68 seconds. I set the new record with a 11.90 second flight with my Freestyler 4 outfitted with 6x 94761 servos and a 10 channel FHSS-3 receiver. Dillon Graves won the sportsman classification of the event flying my old Freestyler 4.

So a big win and a new World Record for Team Airtronics

Thank you guys for all of the support!

This just in from David Klein:

Mike Greenshields and Airtronics USA,

I wanted to take the time to formally thank the entire Airtronics family. The support that the 2011 US F3B team received from Airtronics USA, and all of the staff that make up the ATX family was really above and beyond. We traveled to Laiwu, China on September 15th, and prepared to compete with the rest of the world from September 23rd through the 28th. We blogged every day of travel on our website, posting pictures and reports daily. Blogging directly to our website ensured that those following our progress would be continually exposed to our sponsors banners, Airtronics being #1.

Attached are some images of all three team pilots using their SD-10Gs. …

The US team won a silver medal for the team score with Kyle Paulson placing 4th, David Klein placing 6th, and Thomas Kiesling placing 8th all using SD-10Gs. I couldn’t be more appreciative of being part of the Airtronics team.

Thank you again for all of your support. It really makes me proud to be part of the family,
