I think a cool competition @ IRCHA would be something like this... 6 or 8 identical helis, maybe supplied by a group of manufacturers. Same engine/pipe & fuel if nitro OR same motor, ESC & batts if electric. All FB with same paddles, servos & tail gyro.
Each pilot OR team gets an hour to set-up the heli, then they get 2 flights, 1 with set maneuvers all pilots gotta fly, then a cut-loose Smack-Down free flight.
Couple guys to judge OR some judges & other pilots combined to decide winner.
This would highlight the pilots skills more than the heli setup...
Kind of like the 'King of the Mountain' contests that went on @ ski resorts.. Same Dual race course, but each racer had to race in a group on skis as 1/2 their score, then race in a group on snowboards as the other 1/2.. Best combined time was winner.
Maybe make it a Charity Event thing, with a trophy tagged with winner's name OR team name each year -PLUS Bragging Rights
