United States F3P Team

Here is a story on the United States F3P team from Bill Pritchett!

Splash

On behalf of the 2019 USA F3P Team of Joseph Szczur, AC Glenn, Dave Lockhart, and Greyson Pritchett, thanks for the amazing support of our efforts from the NSRCA!

There were 40 F3P competitors and the US finished overall:

  • Joseph 4th - AC 11th
  • Dave 15th
  • Greyson 18th- earning the US a Bronze Team Medal

I am extremely proud of these guys. Very few people have the opportunity to represent their nation and each one of these guys stepped onto a very large stage and flew great.

The official organizer's website is here.

From Don Szczur

As winter sets in around the world, many IMAC and Pattern flyers take to the indoors to keep their flying skills sharp. What essentially evolved out of the ETOC is a world class event known as F3P.

The international (FAI) F3P World Championships event is going on this week in Crete. In case you are wondering where Crete is, it is basically in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. The U.S. Team is represented by Dave Lockhart, AC Glenn, Joseph Szczur and Greyson Pritchett. Bill Pritchett is the team manager for the U.S. team.

As of the end of preliminaries, Gernot Bruckman is in 1st and Donatas Pauzuolis is in 2nd. Joseph Szczur is leading the U.S team right now in 4th place. He is joined by AC Glenn who also made the finals (being webcast on Friday morning).

Let's cheer on the U.S. Team!

Thanks, Don

Thanks US Team, awesome results especially considering the considerable head-start and advantages other countries have with respect to indoor flight venues, culture, etc. This is a very demanding discipline with regard to hardware, skill and dedication required and it's great to see the Bronze medal team result!

Congrats to the whole team! I can assure everyone that these guys put in a lot of hard work as I’ve received numerous snap chats from Greyson and Ac of practice! These guys probably put as much flying time into this as many do either IMAC or pattern flying. Along with the fact of having to practice during weird hrs of the day! Congrats to all of you!

All the videos are fantastic, but loved Donatas' freestyle. Congratulations Team USA for the podium finish and Joseph Szczur for 4th overall.

The videos, above, are all freestyle, right? If you go to the 777BlueAngel youtube channel there's a video of Mitsuharu Takamatsu using the slow-flight precision airframe. This, to me, is the most amazing.

Those are amazing. Especially the slow flight precision! I thought it was in slow motion video at first. I love Gernot's flights.

Jurgen gets the best videos!
Been sub'd to his channel for years.

I do wish he would post up details about each pilots airframe and electronics used.
I LOVE F3P!
