Did You Know...

... that the pursuit of new world records is not over yet at Gold Coast?

NMP PCH HayaBusa engineering for Round 6
posted Oct 9th, 2018 - Round 6 in 4-way is history, as the previous world record is. Arizona Airspeed posted a 60-pointer first before NMP PCH HayaBusa lifted the new record number to 62 points and increased the lead on the 4-way Open Class leaderboard back to six points.

It felt almost like the whole meet was over after Round 6, while there are four more rounds to go. Atmosphere and celebrations resembled somehow the situation after the completion of a meet.

Most of the previous national records for a single round tumbled just as much as the official world record did. Many national teams at Gold Coast took advantage of a rare opportunity that came up in Round 6.

The 56-pointer by the Aerodyne Weembi Girls is a new world record in 4-way Women, as well, of course. It was the highest score for the round behind HayaBusa and Airspeed, and the French team would also be in 3rd place on the Open Class leaderboard after Round 6, five points ahead of the French 4-way Open Class team.

Arizona Airspeed engineering for Round 6
It was a very interesting situation going into Round 6. The four teams who could potentially threaten the previous 56-pointer world record had two different ways how to engineer the sequence, and they shared it equally.

NMP PCH HayaBusa and Aerodyne Weembi Girls decided to use the traditional and conventional engineering, while Arizona Airspeed and Aerodyne Realfly chose a more unusual way how to perform the same sequence. The previous NSL-TV video clip with the preparations for Round 6 included the two different engineering options.

Eventually, NMP PCH HayaBusa and Aerodyne Weembi Girls combined for a total of 118 points, after three point deductions. Arizona Airspeed and Aerodyne Realfly together scored 112 points and lost four points with the alternative engineering.

The pursuit of world records is not over yet and now shifts towards the 8-way competition where Round 10 offers the same opportunity...
