The competition, attended by 10 teams from 6 provinces in Indonesia, was held at Sulaiman Airport, Bandung, from 10 to 19 July 2023.

With a difference of only 52 points from the leading team from East Java, Deo Agung won second place in the “Outdoor Rubber Power” competition. His superiority and technical ability in operating model airplanes made of flying rubber (rubber power) was key to his success in presenting the silver medal.

Meanwhile, Muhammad Fathur Rahman won fifth place in the same competition with his expertise and extraordinary dedication. Despite fierce competition, dedication and hard training have led him to this proud position.

The winners of the national and regional championship 2023 “outdoor rubber power” have the right to represent their respective provinces in PON XXI/2024 which will be held in DI Aceh.
