Been watching a few of these vids,,Curtis Youngblood and a few others.
Man what control ,what depth perception ,,what a beautiful thing to watch. So much mastery is required to do the simplest of things.
Check it out...

Sorry it is at the top right corner of the home page for the videos.
Most people would think it was boring but they don't know the skill involved. But not us!!!

The first few minutes of those videos are pretty boring, but I am quite impressed once they start doing the maneuvers. I sure wish I could fly my helicopters in such straight lines.

Yeah I really enjoyed watching Curtis Youngblood video. That new Rave 90 looks sweet and super smooth. Kinda sparked some interest in me flying FAI F3C style

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

I think I'd enjoy a helicopter with one of those FAI style fuselages on it (which surprisingly CY didn't have).

I wonder if they are judged when moving from the pits to the the center. Can you imagine having to be so steady and land it inthe circle perfectly even before starting the the routine?? The flag in some videos showed a pretty good wind.
Wonder why Zabos [or what ever his name is} isn't there . Are there many 3D monsters in this competition??,,,besides Curtis of course

Yeah, there was a lot of wind. But what was up with having to walk alongside the helicopter from the pits to starting line for the first part of the routine? Would make more sense in my opinion to set the helicopter down in the middle of the circle to start with. At the first video I thought CY was just trying to be cool by "flying" to the start line, but then I realized everyone was doing it.

Looks like plank style pattern flying which I started doing years ago then stopped cause of kids being born. It does remind me of the grace of the gasser helicopters and the style I attempt to do with my gasser when flying around. No slam bam thankyou mam style here!
A breath of fresh air these vids are compared to all the violent heli videos I see all the time.
