F3C is less popular class of RC helicopter flying compared to F3N or 3D, but this form of RC helicopter flying is about the knowledge and abilities. Rules are stricter, quality of the manoeuvres is much more important, than in 3D, but the freedom of creativity is lower. F3C is not about smacking indeed, this is the conventional model helicopter flying, so it deserves the same interest as the popular 3D.

The weather wasn't that nice as it should be in May, but this is true everywhere in Europe apparently. However no reason to complain, at least all rounds went down with no serious problems. There were 17 pilots competing from 8 countries.

Stefan Wachsmuth won the competition with 1970.58 points. Second is Steve Roberts from the United Kingdom with 1962.46 and the third is Eric Weber from Germany with 1894.19 points. Then Mark Christy from the United Kingdom, Ronald Van Lent from the Netherlands and Denis Leboullenge from France followed them in order. The United Kingdom was the most represented country with 5 pilots.
