The high wind speeds forced the organiser to postpone the F1A and F1B fly off to the next morning. Sunday morning there was still wind making it impossible to fly a 10 minute max as the models would land in the town of Kietzr. It was decided to apply an altimeter fly off with a max of 5 minutes. Third and fourth place tied with 30 meters and they did a second altimeter fly off at the end of the Sunday.
