Nick posted this on his Facebook page I hope he doesn't mind me reposting it here.

this is only part of what he posted

As you may have noticed I've been posting a lot about FAI/F3C flying, and for the last few years it is something I've been very passionate about. Unfortunately this year the XFC (and also the Heli Masters) fall within less than a months time of the World Championships, making the time frame extremely tight. After weighing all the factors, with the help of some close friends, the reality of being able to compete in both (and actually being able give 110% effort to both) simply became unreachable in that time frame. I regret to say that I have decided to withdraw from the XFC to spend that time preparing for the F3C World Championships in July.

There was 5 no shows minus Nick who let everyone know. So 6 I'm total.

There is usually 18 pilots.

Have Rotors, Will Fly!

It's a shame there were not enough helicopter pilots to fill up all the available slots. There has got to be more pilots among us willing to compete. Maybe not for first place, but at least for the experience.

One must include one of these maneuvers in his 4min routine during the LCQ
XFC 2013 Heli Known Maneuvers

Big Ben Reversal:
The pilot will start with a tail in hover on the centerline. When the pilot starts the tic toc, the tail will be in the 6 o’clock position and the blades will be facing the judges and pilot. The pilot will then perform a counter-clockwise tic-toc hitting all 12 points. They will end back at the 6 o’clock position in a tail in hover and will hold that hover for two seconds. After two seconds passes, the pilot will then do a 180-degree pirouette. The helicopter will now be in a nose in hover, and the skids will now be facing the pilot. The pilot now repeats all 12 points of the tic-toc (clockwise) ending back at 6 o’clock in a nose in hover for 2 seconds. The pilot will be judged on altitude control and also hitting all 12 points of the clock with precision.
________________________________________________________________________

Vertical Rolling Figure 8 with Roll Reversal:
The pilot will start from fast forward flight coming from the left or right. On the centerline the pilot will start rolling and enter into the 1st half of the rolling 8. When the pilot completes the first half of the maneuver and the model reaches the centerline at the top of the vertical 8, the roll direction reverses and the pilot will complete the second half of the rolling eight while rolling the opposite direction. The pilot will be judged on the consistent speed of the maneuver, positioning and making it a recognizable vertical 8.
________________________________________________________________________

Pirouetting Flipping Reversal Loops:

The pilot will start this maneuver flying from either the left or right.
From fast forward flight when the model hits the centerline, the pilot will start the first pirouetting flipping loop while pirouetting. When the pilot completes the first loop and the model hits the centerline, the pirouette direction will switch to the opposite from the first loop. The pilot will then start the second pirouetting flipping loop while pirouetting.
The pilot will be judged on making the loops round and keeping consistent speed through both of the loops and also positioning.

Does anyone have results from today's heli pilots?

If my wife had another job I'd have more Helicopters
