Won 1st place in the 3rd event [link]
Won 1st place in the 2nd event [link]
The event was absolutely mind-blowing. We knew thousands of people will come but we never even imagined it would be that crowded, the beach was literally filled up!
Thanks to Me7sin & fayoora
The weather was very windy out there but that didn't stop the event. Our team did well, the plane was heavy though it helped to cut through the wind and reach a decent distance. Our show went well although we got screwed when they played another team's song (we paused the whole event for a few minutes). Can't loose with Grendizer, eh? :P
The only bad side in the event was the judging. I have no idea how a team like The Phoenix did not win. With their outstanding performance and amazing flying distance I was certain they were gonna snap 1st place, how in hell did they end up not winning anything, not even 2nd or 3rd?! And Black
Bird Pearl team winning two awards? Hmmm.... There's something about that, definitely.
All in all, we covered 10 meters and got 9,8,8,8,
8 6 score for the show so it's good, very good actually. We did not expect it.
So here comes the time where I expose everything about our team...
