Wow! that is the best to see the heli re-trace its path on the video. Really fantastic work and flying.

P.S. Really cool "S" auto.

Not meaning to knock the 3 D guys,,,,but this is to me what helicopter flying flying is all about.I can only hope to one day be able to afford the time and fuel to get on the fringe of this stadium.I saw Wayne Mann fly last summer and it gave me goose bumps and it was 90 plus outside.This is just awsome.Thanks for sharing.

I love the smell of nitro in the morning..

I love the sound of a true FAI heli. Why they sound so different than a typical 90 sized heli, ya got me, but I like it a lot.
Thanks to jim for sharing. Awesome!!

Great work. It shows me the precision flying required for this type of contest. This type of software/video would have applications in all types of motion study work.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I need to make it to IRCHA, and then find someone that can do a sustained "In Frame" Piro Flip, then slow motion ghost it. Rinse and repeat with a Chaos.

Also, what I need to find is a real programmer. My code is written in the only language I know, Visual Basic. Consequently, its OH MY GOD, slow. If I had to guess, there is probably a professional product out there that already does this, but us mere mortals could never afford it! :-)

BTW, heli-cuzz, What makes Dwight's heli sound so "right" is its mostly belt drive. Three belts total, one between the engine and tail drive shaft, another to drive the tail, and a 3rd to drive the cooling fan. Also the main gear has some type of composite gear surface. That and its 7.9:1 gear ratio makes a wickedly quite airframe.

I know about the Caliber series helis. I have three Caliber5 and 2 Caliber30 with the dual stage belt drive system. I've had many pilots comment on how quiet my 50s fly. I just havn't hit the lottery to buy the Caliber90. LoL
I didn't realize the 90 was 7.9:1 ratio. I'd like to see if I can convert my Cal5 to a 7.9:1 ratio.

Thanks again for posting all those vids. Nice job well done.
