Results of the 2004 3D Masters.
It was the very first time Dutch people have actually flown in the 3D Masters contest. I can tell you that both me and Marcel van Raak felt the pressure of a large audience and a jury looking at every thing you do. I think that our caller Rick van der Sloot also felt the stress now and then.
The experience was nice though. Unfortunately I have had a lot of trouble this year, and too little time to practice :-( Next year I hope to attend again, and then with a much better preparation. Given this limited practice, I was very pleased with the results.
The Dutch team. From left to right: John Vugts (Pilot), Rick van der Sloot (Caller) and Marcel van Raak (Pilot). From left to right at the bottom: Raptor 50, Raptor 90, Raptor 90, Raptor 50, Raptor 90 and a Raptor 90 :-)
My overall position in the Sportsman class was 6th, and I won
the flight to set music, and I was 3rd in the flight to own music!
Here you can see a Small Video of some of my set maneuvers (low quality). Some better videos will be added in the near future. Note that I messed up the sustained chaos completely :-)
This is me and our caller Rick

Look at my overall 7th position in the flights to music of all pilots
(Masters, Experts and Sportsman)!
Marcel van Raak was 14th overall in the flights to music.

Here you can see the table with the total scoring of the Sportsman class. You can see that I was 6th, and Marcel van Raak was 4th!. Not bad for our first try.
