The most important thing is to enjoy what you do, whatever your skill level or preference of flying style, enjoy it and improvement will follow. As competitors we may not all become World Champions but we all strive to fly to the best of our ability each time we compete. Being successful in competition is all about consistency so take the time to set your machine up correctly to suit your flying and spend time getting to know how it handles to get the best from it each time you fly.
