3DX is the World 3D RC Helicopter Competition Standard based on the successful 3D Masters format.
The 3DX Community Founding Principles:
To forward the cause of 3D flying
To encourage talented pilots and develop their potential
To make 3D competition accessible to every 3D enthusiast
To provide a fair and accountable Judging standard
3DX Competitions will all have the same format – entrants will be asked to fly 5 Set Manoeuvres from a list of 30 produced each year, and will also have to fly a 3 minute Freestyle sequence. The change in available manoeuvres will mean that the events are annually made fresh, current and relevant to the new 3D styles as they evolve.
We expect that 3DX Events will be organised at two distinct levels, the small local event and the larger regional 3DX event.
In the case of the small event, a group of individuals, a Club, or a Local Area will be able to have their own 3DX event by using Peer-judging plus a Moderator in order to run a simple, informal competition, the Grass-roots of 3DX.
The larger or Regional 3DX Event will provide a focal point for an Area of a large landmass, or a country and will typically be organised by a team of people to provide all the organisation and infrastructure necessary. At this level, it will be possible to provide 3D Masters Judging, and probably 3D Masters pilots for demonstration flights during the event.
There is room within the scope of 3DX to have one-make or closed events.
The main aim of 3DX is to produce over the next few years an international format and standard by which 3D pilots are judged.
To The Pilots
3DX offers many positives to the 3D pilot:
Coherent, understandable format proven in the World’s greatest 3D Event
Freestyle Routines and Set Manoeuvres can be perfected over a season’s flying
A genuine upgrade path through the levels of 3DX to the Ultimate Event
More sponsorship opportunities through the 3DX sponsorship programme
As a 3D pilot, you will be able to download rules, manoeuvres and details of the event, and then fill out your Entry Form on line (a copy will be sent to you). Via this site you will be able to ask our panel of experts questions, contact other 3D pilots, make plans, organise your practice sessions and generally involve yourself in the 3DX scene. After the contest, your event organiser will post a report on the contest with photos and winners lists, and maybe even video.
You are not limited to only one 3DX event each year, you may enter as many as you are able to travel to. This means that you can improve your flying throughout the year against a constant standard – 3DX, and of course the 3DX sponsors will be watching your progress through the site with keen interest!
