2011 May 26 Endless Foot Drag Competition

This was our first running of the new style, where pilots launch, fly one task, do a spot landing then get ready to launch again for the next task. Each launch and power-off spot landing are scored so there’s a lot less luck involved and a lot more of the fun stuff to watch. Plus it’s far more condensed into one area.
