The course is laid out in a straight line with 1 kicking stick, 2 Pilates exercise balls of 50-60cm, 3 pylons and finally a 10 foot diameter (3 meter) circle. The pilot launches, flies to and picks up one of the two balls with his feet then slaloms the three pylons, dropping the ball in the target. He then flies back through the course, picks up the next ball, slaloms the course again dropping the next ball in the target. Lastly, he slaloms through the course and kicks the kicking stick. Time runs from first ball touch to stick kick.
