All the results
Saudi Arabia's Nawaf Al-Rehaili, also flying an ADAM, was third overall after a tie-breaker decider with Mohsen Mansouri of Iran. Mohsen took second, behind overall winner Jihun Yoo of Thailand.
The competition took place in Taldykorgan from 21st to 29th June. 70 pilots from 12 countries took part and 12 rounds were scored. Conditions were not easy, with temperatures reaching 37C in the shade and switching winds in the landing field.
Also flying Adams to top-ten places were Almas Akhmetov in sixth, and Maxim Moldovanov in 10th, both from Kazakhstan.
