Introduction:

      Longpan, Kenting, which is located at the southern tip of Taiwan, is a huge area of lawn & hanging cliff that is about 100 meters above sea level. Each October, with the seasonal north-easterly wind at the speed between 10-22 m/s, F3F comp at the site became a must. Many pilots from Hong Kong and Taiwan have flown sub 30”rounds during these comps here.
      The ideal site for the last stop of World Cup 2013, “showdown in Taiwan.”




The Contest:

      The contest will be conducted according to FAI rules for F3F slope soaring
      FAI Sport Code, Section 4, Volume F3 Radio Control Soaring Model Aircraft
      2012 edition
      Each pilot is allowed to register three models for the contest. The organizer will try to run as many rounds as possible. If more than three rounds were flown the lowest round score of each competitor will be discarded and the others added to obtain the final score which will determine his position in the final classification. If more than fourteen rounds were flown, the two lowest round scores will be discarded. The awards are for individuals. There will be an award for the best run and team awards.
