Starting to look like this will be my "Free Known" sequence for Advanced competitions this year, or something very much like it.
Figures 2, 4, 6, 8 & 10 are mandatory. The order in which they are flown and the remaining 5 figures I can choose myself up to a limiting difficulty ('K') factor of 320.
My early season practice feels like it is going well, as I try to get ready for the more demanding competition at my new level.
I am excited at the prospect, but my expectations for this season are modest, "Advanced Level" is a big step up for me and a very competitive category with some excellent pilots flying in it.
I am reasonably pleased with the flying in this practice session. My flying is starting to be quite calm between manoeuvres, which looks nice, I think, my rolls and flick-rolls are reasonably crisp and I am starting to know my plane a lot better after a season, last year, of (largely) familiarisation. Need to work more on improving the positioning though.
Oh, and spot the small flock of large birds that flash past quiet close after I level from the warm-up figure
They were quite close!
