Default 2014 XFC Champs!

Ok guys, the 2014 XFC is in the books! After several rounds of hard fought battle with some airplanes meeting the earth, the scores were shaken up, the mid pack was resorted and everyone remained on their toes. The honest truth is that almost anyone of the pilots this year could have won, the flying was seriously that good. But after the final scores were tallied here is where the final standings came in.

7th - Ben Batts
6th - Joe Smith
5th - Devin McGrath
4th - RJ Gritter
3rd - Spencer Norquist
2nd - Gabriel Altuz

And your 2014 XFC Airplane Champion.. to steal Big D's line My NEPHEW...

Mr. Jase "The Ace" Dussia!


CONGRATS!!! To ALL THE 2014 XFC PILOTS! This year was awesome!


SCORES:


I'm heading to the hotel to edit and upload. Todays flights will be posted as soon as the interwebz allows!

Huge thank you to Frank Noll, Steve Kaluf and all the XFC staff for another awesome year. AND thank you to Mother Nature for providing the best XFC weather ever!!

Congratulations to all of the pilots! You are all competing at a level of that 99.9% cannot achieve. Just being there is huge.

My wife says she would come and watch me if I could fly like that.
Don't think she'll be doing that.

Congrats Jase and the rest of the competitors!

Quick questions- were there any gyros used in this year's competition like last year's and or was there any rule preventing last year's mess from happening again?
