3D masters is this weekend, and for us there is not down there in Spain we can only wait for the videos to get online :(

But until the video’s is online we can practice one the flight maneuvers, check this link http://www.fly3dx.com/setManoeuvres.htm there you can see the complete list of all the maneuvers. But the great think about this list of maneuvers is the video attached to every maneuver, that way you can see a video of all the different maneuvers.

Check this Pie Dish maneuver http://www.fly3dx.com/manoeuvres2009/05-PieDish.wmv

This year we have 3 Danish pilot in the 3D masters
you can find the complete list of competitors here http://www.3dmasters.org.uk/2009entrants.htm

I am personally looking forward to see Tareq al Saadi, there has been a lot of hype about him on the internet and he can do some cool flying, and as you can read from the interview in Helista Magazine he is really ready for the 3D master competition :)

Check out a video from Tareq with a D3 Turbulence Hirobo

What is the difference between a Piro Flip and a Chaos. Well i don’t know but Curtis Youngblood will walk you through it in this video and he can tell you the differences between the two maneuvers.

My maneuvers for helibatic 2009

First I would like to make a short introduction to how we have created the Danish competition classes. Last year a guy here in DK(not me) got a great idea, how about making a sport class in the competition classes, and the Helibatic Sport class was born, or F3C Sport for the international readers.
The sport classes have evolved, now we have a F3DK Sport class to.

The possible classes you can compete in this year:
Helibatic Sport: A class for new heli pilots, if you do not have any experience and would like to try the competition flying out. In this class you have to fly 8 maneuvers with low skill level, to make it possible for many to enter this competition class.

Helbatic/F3C: This is the international class FAI competition class, for the expert pilots, 8 – 10 maneuvers with high skill level is what you have to fly here.

F3DK Sport: This is the new class this year, here you have to fly 8 maneuvers in two rounds and one freestyle round 2-3 minutes. This class is for the wanabe 3D pilots. It is a good change to try your 3D skills out. With limited skill level on the maneuvers.

F3DK Expert: This is the hardcore 3D international pilots.

There are 3 Helibatic events a year.

What are the sport classes all about, to get people in to competition nothing else. And it works very well, last year there was a lot of new pilot in the Helibatic sport class, and we really got a great introduction to what a competition flying is. And combined with a bunch of great people and a basic interest in helping each other getting better, this is really a very excellent way to get new pilot in to competition flying.

Back to me :) I am in the F3DK Sport class this year, and here is what I am going to fly in the first event this year. (see videos below)

After the maneuvers below there is a freestyle round, and I have no clue how to do that, but I hope I will learn this year.

Stop hacking

My blog has just been a victim of a hacker attack, I feel violated.

It’s seems like I have stop the bastard or bastards, but you can never be sure with this type of people. To think that there is a guy somewhere out there at the end of the wire, hacking my site, adding stupid useless pharmacy links and other useless stuff, it’s pathetic. I hope it’s worth the money, if you get any.

Well the hacker is checkmate for now, and I hope it will stay that way.

On the Heli note, the flying is going great and I am practicing the 8 maneuvers for the competition a week from now, they are not that great yet, but it can’t be perfect.

Wish me luck with the competition and the hackers.
