Helibatic 2 is over

No Gravatar

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 :)

Helibatic 1 2009

Well I didn’t really get time to write live over the weekend as my initial thoughts was, but here is an update about what happened over the weekend. Friday night was really a buzz killer for me, my sleeping bag was way too cold and I did have difficult catching heat all night in my tent. But some of the fellow pilot invited me to stay at their house for the next night, and there I seeped like a baby.

Flying was really nice, everybody was talking about they didn’t had had any opportunity to practice and that they where feeling inexperienced and unready, but despite that the flying was awesome and most of the news pilot was flying great.
There was 28 pilots attending in all classes, and that is very good compared to the size of the country. I end last in 3D sports class what a bummer, I was not good I had problems with my flying and problems with my helicopter and some very bad weeks up to the competition with no preparation didn’t help me do the flying any better, but there is one good thing about it, it can only get better for me in 2009.

Here are some pictures, which are the only pictures my, camera ran out of power(back to preparation). But I will post some videos later or some of the coming days, subscribe to my feed to keep you self updated. There is some nice flying videos on my camera coming soon.
