3DX Organisers

The 3DX standard has been introduced as a way for the 3D Community to standardise its evaluation and ranking of 3D pilots. Borne out of many years as the fundamental 3D Masters format, 3DX has an enviable pedigree and following among the World’s top 3D pilots, and we propose that you use it as the format for your event.

3DX Community
We envisage a worldwide 3D Community which shares a common currency. Men who play football at the local park on a Sunday morning play to the same rules that the World Cup is played to. We want that to be true of 3DX also.

We believe that 3DX will help to publicise and popularise 3D around the world, with resulting increased sales of equipment, increased activity and increased acceptance of your event and your efforts. Having a common 3DX presence will allow Organisers, Sponsors and Pilots to involve themselves in as much of this activity as their ambitions allow, and your event can establish itself as one of those major world happenings.

Rather than try to make your event ‘different’, you do not need to waste valuable time and resources to differentiate your event format. Instead you may use the format the world knows and accepts. The 3DX website will help with booking in pilots, event rules, scoresheets and provide the scoring system as an Excel Spreadsheet. Even the Organiser of a small event will be exposed to opportunity for sponsorship he would never normally reach to support his event, and he knows that he is part of a world movement, seen to be supporting grass-roots development of our sport.

On application for acceptance into the 3DX Community you will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire about you, your resources and your event. Once that is completed satisfactorily, you will be allocated a micro-site which will carry details of your event, entry forms, rules and other details plus advertising. This advertising may come from Sponsors and supporters found by you, or may come from 3DX Sponsors who will be actively encouraged by 3DX to support your event. 3DX may require flightline banner space and trader space so that its Sponsors may have a presence at your event. If this is the case you will receive a percentage of the fee for booked space. The Entrants to your event will fill out the Entry Form, and you will have access to a reporting system, which will give you up-to-the-minute information on the status of your event. The 3DX site will carry a count-down to your event from 60 days to run until the event itself.

Your Action Plan

  1. Agree in principle with your support team that you want your event to be part of 3DX
  2. Ask for our Questionnaire, fill it out and send it back to start the process
