The local TV station showed up at last weekends helibatic competition here in Denmark, Kim one of our top pilots in Denmark, shows a small flight, short but good quality video, especially the part where you can see on Kim’s face that something is almost about to go wrong.

Check it out here http://www.tv-kalundborg.dk/?poditemid=8605&tagsid=&soegeord the site is in Danish but just hit play.

Back from Helibatic and in front of a real computer, I have just uploaded a few pictures from Helibatic, just to get you in the mood. I am not competing at Helibatic this year, sorry to say the other guys seemed like they where having a good time like always. But no I didn’t get the change to practice for the competition this year. But I did get some flights in today and the frenzy was kicking.

Check out the pictures:

Check out this great flight from Kyle Dahl at the XFC 2010, Kyle is this years winner and for good reason it seems, it is truly a great flight and different flight from what you see from some of the other professionals. I like the maneuverer a 2:09 where i fly’s up and then fly’s back like it is rewinding looks great.


The tricky crossroad for 3D Masters

3DM was the name of the original dream. A beautiful sport arena where 3D enthusiasts and nerds could come and do serious battle. After 3DM 2009 this the dreamer certainly should wake up, because a nightmare is approaching!

The intensions of providing good weather resulted in too hot weather which brought pilots and camera guys close to fainting. The intensions of providing restaurants and entertainment to everyone resulted in too bad food at too high prizes. The intensions of providing good nearby apartments to the pilots resulted in many rented cars. The intensions of providing the beautiful sport arena resulted in many situations where the pilots seemed more professional than the 3DX platform.

No doubt that the 3DM dream still lives, but it will require some serious re-organisation to get the dream living again.

From a pilot point of view, 3DM in Spain was certainly a colourful experience with ups and downs all the way, as usual. My set manoeuvre flight was great considering the windy conditions. The masters set manoeuvres have become so difficult, that many participants do get big troubles when conditions are not perfect. I finished 9th position.

Freestyle went better, leading to 6th position. After 1 beer I was pretty drunk after that result :-) During freestyle my Turbulence acted like short Rx glitch several times. Later that evening my Tx totally failed on roll channel! I borrowed a Tx, but unfortunately switch positions were not similar.

The day after at music flight I hit the wrong switches twice, but fortunately my score did not go completely bad. Overall 9th position which make me very proud.

Rest of the time I enjoyed talking to the incredible amount of rc heli knowledge that was gathered at 3DM (and drinking huge amount of beer and red wine :-)). No doubt, this is the place to be if you want to listen to extremely experienced guys.

The 3DX dream still lives, but there will be many sceptic people in 2010.
