HelicopterPhotos and Videos › Tareq Alsaadi Alpine Smackdown: Video sped up?

First let me say that I am in no way trying to discredit Tareq. In fact, he is my favorite pilot right now, and IMO easily top 3 3D smackdown in the world (If not the top). However, this video just feels wrong. The the flight is so fast, it appears unnatural. Also, the engine tone sounds much higher pitch than any I have heard before.

Maybe some video guys can help. So, do you think this video was sped up?
Normally, I stay out of these types of topics, but this video just seems sped up to me.

Watch at YouTube

I think the guy is just AWESOME, but you may have a point there on the particular video... We'll see..

No, looks like typical Tariq to me. If you watch the people, they are not making any unnaturally fast body movements.

I will say when the helicopters were chasing each other, it reminded me of hummingbirds fighting over a feeder.

Just pay attention in the beginning of the video the speed the heli moves left and right and the climb out speed...it's on steroids !!
Didn't even watch the whole video before it seemed unnatural..IMO.

The people wouldn't show different for small movements especially if they are just sitting around watching...

Hmmm.. that's a protos, not a nitro like I thought... moves it a little more into the realm of believeability.

I found what I think may be the source vid on MSH's FTP site, but am only getting 12-13 KB/s speed, so in a couple hours, I'll put up the original and we can take a look.

It seems awfully fast but I have never seen him fly in person.

There is some background music maybe someone can recognize it and tell from that.

The nitro heli sounds in the background sound normal.

I've watched several of Tareq's videos. I too would contend that he is one of the best 3d pilots flying. This just looks like standard Tareq to me. One of the things that makes his style so distinct is how mecanically precise he is. He has this almost robotic perfection in his flying. Very fast, very precise.

Well, the WMV download got cutoff at 43 out of 110 megs, but plays.

This video is not sped up.

He's just that good.

Wow.

That is why I watched the entire vid. At the end the people start moving more, they move at natural speed and there is no evidence that the vid slowed after he landed.

Tariq is that good....

Yeah, and did you see how much airspace he was using? I am used to seeing him throw down in a ten foot cube.

Hi guys

This must be some conspiracy theory.......

Many people have video footage of Tareq. There is always someone who tries to accuse them of being sped up. Why would ALL videos of Tareq look so fast?????? Because it is real!!!!

I am still wiping down my pants after enduring a WHOLE flight while standing next to him yesterday. He was testing out a new Quark gyro and was doing lots of hard low down 'pitch pumping' and piro maneuvers. He was trying hard to break something.....

Regards
Paul

PS: Watching Tareq for real is way more exciting and frightening than any video.

He is under-control and unreal.
Sign me up for a flight next to him.

How many gimbals does he go through?

I was just watching Tareq on Youtube flying his Vibe 90 recently and it was everybit as quick, low, and precise as this one of the protos, maybe more so. Actually, I don't even think this is one of his better videos. There are certainly better.

I get a charge out of his flying every time I see it.Awesome.

The video is legit.
The first Tareq video I ever saw was the one with the trees.
Flying hard 3D inches off the deck and incorperating the trees into the routine.Crazy.

Its amazing, not only the skill but how the hell he gets a heli mechanicly setup, powerwise and everything else to do that stuff.

What I find the most amazing if anyones ever noticed, is how he manages to stop the heli after a manouver completely still just for a moment in one spot almost as if you had pressed pause, like its locked in ice. Ive seen alot of pilots that are really good to watch like Daniel Jetchin and Nigel Browne but I think this guy has to be the best Ive ever seen, not just better almost in a different league!

Give at a few months or so Im sure we will see other guys flying to this level, I think Tareq has raised the bar to a new level.
