F1D Indoor World Championships

Steve Nelson (Australian Team Manager) Reporting on the F1D World Championships from West Baden Springs Hotel, Indiana.

Interesting conditions today. Snow outside. Severe updrafts and downdrafts inside. Some of the best models were just under the ceiling 30 meters up and on the ground 30 seconds later having hit a downdraft. Cold steel roof and warm inside walls was the culprit. After 2 rounds the Aussies are 9th,14th & 23rd. 4 rounds remain.

Australia has three representatives, Tim Hayward-Brown, Max Newcombe and Alex Secara. There are 53 competitors.

F1D models weigh a maximum of 1.2g.
