3D masters just announced the entrance list for 3D Masters, this is the approved pilot for entering the competition.
Some of the interesting competitors in Experts class are the Danish competitors for my point of view. It is Klaus Jensen a 3D Masters veteran and then we have the new kid on the block Kenneth Krull, it is his first time but I am sure he can compete with all the good pilot, SMACK IT.
In the Masters class we see Tom-Erik Rolfson from Norway I personally have my hopes up for.
Then we have the joker, the surprise Curtis Youngblood !!! This guy was at the judges table last year, he is the father of 3D and he is one of the most experienced guys at the start line, but Curtis is also the one who crashed his helicopter at a demo last year, which is not going to win the judges this year
One is missing in my point of view Kim Jensen from Denmark, he is going to judge this year, if you can’t beat them join them :)
At 3D masters this year a crash happened that could have had huge consequences, one of the pilots broke the tail in flight, while flying inverted, the mistake he made was trying to save the helicopter, the helicopter started to fly over the audience area and the pilot finally killed the engine. This proves that even professionals can make mistakes.
Note to self: Kill engine immediately after something is broken in flight.
Finally got one of my videos don, this is one of the videos you are going to see from RCHeli.dk with a little twist, it is not the sponsored and cool edited video, but this will give you an impression of what is also going on at an event like 3D Masters.
Krunder from Krunder Aerospace Denmark had a change to show the crowed his self designed 50/50 helicopter, a helicopter with two 50 engines.
On this video you can see Sebastian Duus smacking it around. And you can see some of the issues you have with a twin engined helicopter. :) Read more about the 50/50 here
