  • Pilots will fly their choice of 4 set manoeuvres (from the published list)
  • Flights should be between 2.5 and 3.5 minutes in total
  • Each set manoeuvre within the flight can be awarded a maximum of 35 points (based on flying K3.5 manoeuvres)
  • The overall flight appearance will be awarded points out of 50
  • Each set manoeuvre will be called before it is started, along with the start and end points of the manoeuvre
  • Total maximum points for the round is 190

Round 1 will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Accurate execution of the manoeuvre
  • Height (includes overall height of manoeuvre and height consistency throughout it)
  • Entry and Exit

The Freestyle element of the set manoeuvres flight will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Overall appearance (includes structure, flow, positioning, usage of flying area)
  • Transitions between manoeuvres

The Freestyle flight should be timed to be as close to the set time limit as possible
