I didn't see anyone there recording the helis. Too bad too. There was some great flying and spectacular explosions and all around a lot of fun. Plane guys were very nice and let us practice at the field also. Mingled with a lot of them and as far as I could tell it was prolly the best xfc we have been too. Sure pilot count was down on both sides but what was there were still the best of the best and there was some awesome flying done. Congrats to all. Here were your top seven flying on Sunday in order of finish

It is sad to see such low talk and coverage of XFC. I guess Mark was not there. His videos over the past years of the event were awesome.

The xfc will not happen at all if nobody supports it.

Well and that is the sad thing about it. Nobody supports it very well. I know some things don't fend back a lot of money but without coverage it is doomed. Also needs some manufacturers to be there. Sure Jr Americas and Empire was there and I am sure they didn't sell much there but it is hard to calculate down the road what it might do. I hate to see where this is all heading because this xfc was by far the most fun of any. I hope ppl keep it going

There wasn't anyone there to video helicopters, except for a couple of live FB video feeds from Greg's duct-taped hat phone ; however, I do have all of the photos I took (both airplanes and helis) up and open to the public on my Facebook page:

No Video company was there. Flying Giants was there to video the Airplane side but they did not film helis.

It actually kind of pisses me off that FG didn't video the helicopters. I don't know if both types fly at the same time there or not but if they don't it would have been nice.

I guess they're getting posted lately,

night flight with burnout at the end (my old hard ass self would flame the cam man for missing final impact, THE BEST PART)

Watch at YouTube

and Kevin St Cyr with a very well thought out 3d flight and good video capture,

Watch at YouTube

somebody give this Jordan Horwitz a job video-ing all 3d heli flying from now on, very Mark R-ish with zoom in/outs and good heli in frame tracking (most of the time) he's almost there.

just two I found this morning, nothing else.

Camon, where's the blade stop = splash of Botos Synergy 766 already (same event?)?

Great camera work for sure. I was sure looking forward to some of Mark's classic videos of this event. My hobby is sure depressing me lately.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

I contacted SKS right after XFC and he told me they will no longer film anymore RC events in the future.

Why won't they be filming any more RC events. Did something happen between them.

It's not the Destination, It's the Journey.

He said they will still film other things, just nothing rc related anymore. Who knows, maybe he found a huge contract filming TV content or something. That's all I know.

That says to me that they were not making money in the market.

Even if you were breaking even or a making a tiny bit of cash, you find a market where your time can be more profitable.

When you are not making minimum wage... you move on to another gig.

In their market, they were competing with their old videos. Once you had one crasher video, was the next that much better?
