Southern Winter League F3f Dates 2019 / 20
The Regional winter lg F3f comps are the perfect introduction to this very exciting branch of our sport. Newcomers are encouraged to come along and try F3f for perhaps their first time, always being guaranteed a very warm welcome.
Hints, tips & advice on model set up, turn styles & flying the course are always freely given. Most sports models are perfectly suitable to use, you do not need an expensive F3f mouldie.
It is through these comps that most of us regular F3f pilots ourselves started.
The venue for each comp will be wind direction dependant, using the slopes of Whitesheet, (NNW- SSW) Butser hill (NE) & Eastbourne ( most other directions) each competition venue being dependant upon the forecast wind direction.
