some F3F action in the middle of the winter !

Last week-end, despite freezing temperatures, several pilots met for a very unformal and friendly F3F small competition. We arrived around 10:30, and the south wind was already established. We did 6 rounds with 8 pilots, flying 3 runs at the same time because otherwise, it would have been to difficult to rotate the judges at the bases or at the timing system. Conditions were very variable with times between 65s and 41s, but the essential was to be outside with fresh air and with friends, and enjoy a day racing before the arrival of the rain in the middle of the afternoon.

For me it was also an opportunity to try fro the first time the GoPro 3 Black Edition. I did some photo with it and has been impressed by the quality. I also tried the burst mode which consist in 30 pictures (of 12M pixel each) per second. Result is great as you can see on this short video I edited from the pictures taken.
