VF rules.... Video must start from a launch.

Sun Oct 20, 2013 12:06 pm

Hello everybody...

I know that this is going to get a mixed response but I have altered this rule slightly.

Videos must now start with kite having two points on the ground and clearly launched from two points at the beginning.

This will make it both easier to score and remove any confusion about what is an acceptable start to the video.

Happy to hear peoples thoughts about this but its not negotiable!

Agree, but most important to see IN and OUT in every entry.

but... I`v got the idea ;) The rule for those who do not(or cannot) put the IN to the clip.

Question nr.1 Yan:

Does IN still necessary? :doubt:

Sounds logical to me.... It will be more clear when starts.
Keeping the IN/OUT! (call) makes it more "STACK style" competition (for good or bad)
If someone wants to show K2000 or other ground trick there is plenty of time to make few landings.

By the way, I like the unexpected OUT! of Pawel's video....

It is a good rule to have everyone start from the same position.
I will keep to this next time.
I don't want to make a mess, but maybe OUT should also be a landing of any type?
So that we begin and finish on ground and have the trick programme "framed" in between?
There would be no unexpected OUTs as mine ;)

Thx Kostaaa! but if my flying was all quite predictable there had to be at least one unexpected moment ;)

Waiting to join next round! ;)

If this were the case, would an elegant and orthodox nose crash be accepted as a landing?!

I would not be able to do much more than that... :wink:

In other words, I could guarantee a two point launch (IN) but not a two point end (OUT)... :P
Cheers!

Cool. Got that ;)
If someone wants an OUT on ground than he can have it.
But no limitations here. ;)

Got your point Ara Ararauna!
I know those 1 point landings (aka noseplants) quite well ;)
