I am not a helicopter guru by any means, as a matter of fact I had never even seen one fly until last Friday. I was bouncin' around the internet as usual and I came a cross a web site with a video that I just had to download. The video showed Bill Ludwigs Jet Helicopter being piloted by Jason Krause. This was a phenomenon that was unlike anything I had ever seen. I could not beleive that such a thing existed! So I contacted Bill and asked him when he might be piloting this machine and if I may be able to see it first hand.
To my suprise, I got a message and a map to the location at which he would be piloting this amazing machine. I met Bill and his buddy Steve out at the site he had designated and he was very friendly and informative. As i had never even seen a rc heli in the air.this was an incredible experience. It was so cool listening to that turbine start up. It is a real heli turbine, I guess it should sound that way. Bill took off and that is when I could see that see that he had been a pilot for quite a long time, since high school he explained. Althought Bill is modest about his flying capabilities, but he truely is first class. He explained that Jason Krause is one of the best and that I should see him fly.
Just when I thought that he was taking things to the limit with his jet powered machine he parked it and started up his nitro .91 heli and I watched as he performed incredible manuvers that seemed to be unprecidented. Bill again explained that " You should see Jason Krause fly". Again modest but I am sure that Jason Krause must be the best if Bill is raving about his talents.
Well this is just a brief review of events, and also a thanks to Bill Ludwig who allowed me to witness such and excellent feat. I have to admit that working in the dimensions that you Heli guys work in is pretty admirable, and I have alot of respect for the time, effort and expense that you all go through to maintain your machines. I am just a professional appreciator, and Bill and Steve are professional dudes, with great attitudes that were very gracious to allow me to observe their pilot skills and their machines. Keep up the good work!
