It's time for...VF35!

Virtual Freestyle returns with style in Round 35! This round will be open a little longer than usual because of the way it runs through the holiday and new year season. The round is already shaping up to  be an exciting one, with lots of support from our Facebook group and some superb prizes on offer. The top prize this round is a FlyKites Voyager 0.8 indoor/outdoor glider (pictured below).

Important rule changes

Two important rule changes will apply from VF34 onwards. They are:

  1. The flying segment of an entry must be between 60 and 90 seconds. This is a strengthening of the previous rule on time limit, which did not impose a minimum. The minimum flying time is now 60 seconds.
  2. The permissable size of video file for each entry increases from 25 to 30 Megabytes, with a 10% leeway as before. This change is designed to accomodate higher resolution/higher bitrate videos.

Entrants, please revisit the competition rules to get a full understanding of what is required to enter.

VF33 results

VF33 results are now available and it's congratulations to Alex Belov who takes out the top spot! Some extremely close competition in the top half, with just 1.5 raw score points between third and fifth place.

This is Alex's third consequtive win and sixth overal win in the VF format.  Check out the recently updated Hall of Fame for a complete history of VF winners.

Stay tuned for the VF33 prize draw - coming soon.
