Check out this great video from the Wild West Smackdown Denmark 2008.
The Pitchbrother Society hosted; what seems to be a great weekend. I am sure that they were having there fun, I have seen some pictures that I can’t show on my blog do to parental adversary.
I hope I can get to this event next year.
Dominik seems to domain the 3D competitions at the moment, he has won the 3D Masters 2007 and he has won the Futaba Extreme Flight Championship XFC 2008, he is really rocking the competitions, and best of all he is flying Hirobo.
I myself have a Hirobo Freya 90 and I am very happy with it, but I has been knowen to be a bit slow and not really a 3D helicopter, but in the FAI competitions it has been a very promising helicopter for years. With my curren flying style I am very happy with a stabile and “slow” flying helicopter, it is a very good helicopter to learn some of the difficult maneuvers, but I am also very pleaset to here that Hirobo is working on a new 3D model, the Hirobo Turbulence D3.
Hirobo are known to be a very good helicopter with high quality and excellent design, and that is for affordable prices best of all. I am not sure the new Turbulence is going to be cheep but I now you will get what you pay for an a little more. You can read a bit more about the new Turbulence here.
That is just the helicopter, it takes a pilot to, and I takes a good pilot to win two competitions like that, you can have a look at his excellent flying in some HD video from RunRyder here, and second video. And now for the person here is a short Interview with Dominik Haegele.
Good luck with the next competition Dominik
This person takes the price for being the most famous RC Helicopter idiot around. I am very sorry to be this honest. What is he thinking? See video
One think is that you fly in a area where you should not be, flying a crowed play ground, with lots of kids on, that not okay. It is not safe to fly a helicopter in an area like that. You can have mechanic failure and hit somebody.
That’s one thing, but he is flying with traning skids on, indicating that he don’t know shit about flying yet, he cannot fly a helicopter and he is trying to fly that close to other people, in front of the flight line.!!!!
There is a reason why people is standing behind the pilot when you fly, that whey you the pilot can protect the ordains if you run they run.
Please think about your fellow pilot and do not ruin it for other pilot by doing stupid thinks. Thanks.
If you a looking for a place to fly, look at the field locator map and go fly at an approved flying field http://wmap.rcheli.dk/?club
Have you ever wondered what happened at your last crash, what did you do wrong? or how does that super pro RC helicopter pilot do them cool maneuvers?
There is a Danish guy working on a solution for that, he has create the ability for you to record a transmitter signal and save the signal on to some mobile sound device of your choice. Then he has developed software to display the transmitter movement in a video format. That way can see the precise movement on the transmitter. An RC Black box
Check out this video, where you can see his software.
He se not ready for a release yet but I will keep you updated. or you can look here
