3D Championship Grass Roots 2011

3D Championship Grass Roots 2011 will be held on Saturday 4th June 2011 and is a one day event.

The event will be held, once again, at the superb Milton Keynes Model Helicopter Club.

You can now enter online using this form.

The entry fee is £25 and £5 will be refunded when you turn up to compete.

Please remember to email us a recent photograph of yourself as soon as you can.


Please remember that Grass Roots is an entry level competition, and not a replacement for the old Clubman 3D competition, so entrants need to be honest with their skill level and not enter if they feel they are already over the skill level this competition is intended for. Beginners to 3D (and just beyond) is the aim here, and although we have tried to think of a level above which you shouldn’t enter, it is a very hard task to be fair for everyone.

If we say you shouldn’t really be up to the piroetting manoeuvre stage of 3D flying, that might set a reasonable level, but it might also exclude pilots that can’t do much other 3D, but can do a little piroetting stuff as thats the route they have taken to learning 3D. It’s a tough call, and opinions are more than welcome to help us try to keep this as fair as we can while still encouraging the right level of pilot to progress in the sport.

Higher level pilots should be aiming for Intermediates level at 3D Champs realistically, and not Grass Roots.

Further information about this event will be posted here as required.
