Crash prices 2010

No Gravatar

After some chatting at the local forum, i decided to create a list of crash prices of different models in different sizes, and with some serious help from the forum it ended like this. One thing is the model price when you buy it from new, another thing is the spare parts price when you crash, you can use this list to see what model your budget can handle.

If you would like to help please leave a comment with the model name and the prices in the same row order as shown in the table, thanks.

New videos from Pitchbrother Smackdown 2009

Yes i know it is a bit late to show you new videos, but the facts are that i still have some uncut videos on the disk, for me to edit and you to see, and this is 3 of the videos.

First video is with Sebastian, he just got a sponsorship from Mikado and here he is testing his new Logo 600 in this video, he is working on some V-Bar setup too. But the test flight looks promising.

The next one is with Mark4D having some problems with his engine and later losing a screw in flight, next day he tried again and that went well, except at the end where he is doing a cool crash, check it out you will like it. This video is a great example of how it also is like to fly a remote control helicopter :)

Last video is Andreas(lærlingen) one of the founders of The Pitchbrothers, here he is after 4 days of heavy drinking, and this was his first and only flight at the Pitchbrother smackdown event, it seems like he was there because of the beer and not the flying !!! can’t fit it together. But look at this video he is doing a new maneuver, i think we can call it “hide and seek”. Check it out.

Edit : just fund this great picture :)

Norway at the SmackDown

I am starting to go thru all the video I have from the great event, but I just had to find the great video with the Norwegian guy flying his Raptor 90 from a hangar ship, the reason is that the guy Tom Erik Rolfson was at the SmackDown and he was doing some amazing flying, along with his fellow pilot from Norway.

Here is his video from the hangar ship.

And this is what he also can do, at the SmackDown this weekend.

Here is some of the amazing flying from Tom at the SmackDown

Here are the last videos from Helibatic one, i have only embed on video, the BEST, the rest are YouTube link, my site gets to slow when I have a lot of embedded YouTube videos in the post. But you can still see the videos just click the links.

The only embedded video is with Mark4D I guess there is a reason he is called 4D :) but still nice flying. He fixed his helicopter all night and it was ready the next day for some cool flying.

Ready for Christmas ?

No Gravatar

Yes. The shops have already started to sell Christmas stuff, with the financial crisis on the roll I guess they have to be well prepared.

Christmas puts you in your next crisis, “What can I put on my wish list for this Christmas”. You have a big list of parts you would like: Carbon main blades, Governor, flybarless system, crash kit and a yeas subscription for RC Heli magazine. However, the wife/girlfriend already told you that she can’t/won’t buy any helicopter stuff for you. Back to initial dilemma “What can I put on my wish list for this Christmas”!!!

I have one thing you can put on your wish list and this is a nice compromise for both of you. An RC Helicopter calendar, did you see that? This are some guys (World Scenic Flights) have been traveling all over the world to take pictures of their helicopter with some great background scenery, support them it’s a great Christmas gift you will remember for a year :)

If you cannot find anything for the wife check out my sisters shop (Danish only).

Have a nice Christmas :) a bit early.
