Now the new Beta is out, and you can download at test it. In the weekend at helibatic I just got at sneak peek of the new version from Phoenix, and I just tested one thing cut grass, yes in the new version of Phoenix you can cut grass, the Pitchbrothers is setting the standards for the helicopter world :)

Check out the video where I cut grass, and check out the wireless setup for the PC, cool right, I have no idea how you convert it to wireless, but a very nice feature.

Read the news from Phoenix and download from there site.

Helibatic 2 is over

Well now Helibatic 2 2009 is over and I ended last position AGAIN, it is not a good year for me :) What can I say if you don’t practice you don’t win. That’s a lesson to you all.

I was struck by a little bad luck, when I was in my free style flight I was trying to make a rainbow up against wind, and the engine lost power. It was in the last part of my flight and I end with a nice autorotation right in the circle. There was a lot of comment asking me if I didn’t have a governor installed, but the answer is yes I have a governor installed, but there was a small problem with the governor, see picture.

governor sensor broken

The sensor was broken off !!

I have posted some pictures, most of them are from my friend Kurt, and he is still learning about his fancy camera that is why some of the pictures are dark :)

This is the last video I am going to make from the Pitchbrother Smackdown, it was a good event and I got a lot of good videos, se the links below fo the other posts with videos. Check the video at 1:40t se Lukas doing a piro-flip/Chaos where he just stops the tail for ½ a second, i looks very cool and it work very well when you watch it in real life.

The coming weekend I am going for the second event of the Danish Helibatic, I didn’t do much training and the plan was that I would fligh some practice flights this week, but guess what it is raining all the time, I hope the raining stops on Saturday. I do not expect any good results from my flights this weekend, but hay it is all about the fun in entering the competition…………. YEAH RIGHT :)

Now this is news you will not forget, Infinivation are currently testing a new device called the Crackilator, it’s a device you plug in to the training plug on your transmitter and with a switch on you transmitter you can now do crack maneuvers without moving your stick. Yes that is right, it will do the crack movement for you :)

I thinks this is a device for any pitchbrother!
Yelling “CRACK IT” is a waist of time these days! you just hit the switch

This is one of the test pilots Bobby Watts

I asked and this is no joke !

Edit post: a crack maneuver is starting 4 minutes in to this video
