27.7 average in 2010: Aerodyne Aerokart
Then the rules changed and eliminated the additional point deduction, while the application of slow motion judging was removed as well, for the purpose of real time judging. The door was opened for a new 4way speed on the top level.
Another two world meets later, the winning average in Maubeuge 2008 was up by almost two points, and Airspeed won with a 24.4 average. Only two years later, France won in Menzelinsk 2010 with a 27.7 average, supported though by a 56-pointer for a sequence of only random formations.
The top teams do not waste any time any longer for correcting a mistake. They try as much as possible to keep in synch and move on while swallowing a potential point deduction, and there is also still the chance to "sell the point to the judges" successfully. The NSL News will get deeper into this topic very soon. For now, the audience has the opportunity to compare Arizona Airspeed's 21-pointer performance in February this year with Aerodyne Aerokart's new 22-pointer record in August.
