So I don't understand? Does this mean that the tall guy with the long haired dude friend can't piro flip in both directions or tick tock in either orientation?

This sounds cool! Can't wait to see it in person!

OICU812 I don't 100% fully agree, Bobby's flights was great and entertaining, Rick also (even though I think he is a fool). Their was guys with better flying routines, but Bobby won fair and square.
I know if I could fly 50% for what Bobby does then I would be extremely happy.

@ RCHELILOVER,

You said, "Does this mean that the tall guy with the long haired dude friend can't piro flip in both directions or tick tock in either orientation?"

Sorry if the combinations of previous posts, taken in context with with mine made it sound like I was saying Bobby Watts can't "...piro-flip in both directions..."

We all know that's not the case.

What was said earlier in this thread was this: "I think Tareq could win this with his eyes closed".

My post was intended to point-out to guys who think that "smack" is all there is to winning competitions, have a skewed perspective.

By just flying "freestyle", a pilot can "hide" the fact he's not fully oriented. That's why the 3D Master and the XFC HAVE required maneuvers. So you can't hide your weaknesses.

My ultimate point is the addition of required maneuvers in the "ONE" competitions a good thing. It will help make sure the winner is in fact, a very good and "fully oriented" pilot.

I also like the new rules better. Sure we have other contest that demand precise moves but Bobby can definitely do those as well. I also thought he was aided by his friend who was just hilarious, but again Bobby is fantastic pilot in his own right.

This will make it a little more well balance. I don't think anyone will fault the person if they are not able to or choose not to donate some or all of their money back to charity.

Remember Bobby had a specific reason for doing what he did and it was a great gesture, but I am sure no one in their right mind will expect that to happen every single year. Heck if Bobby wins this year no one should expect for him to do that again.

Note on prize donation on the ONE Contest

6.2.1 Donation of prize monies will not be accepted during the Jamboree. Pilot's are not expected and shall not be pressured to donate any prize monies.

What Bobby did was a wonderful thing, but it should not be expected from every winner, so the rules state.

Did you just find out about this now? This sounds like one of those new AT&T text message commercials.
You're a year late, dude.
Bobby Watts won "The One" competition last year. The 2011 winner is Kyle Dahl.

I almost wish there was no prize money invovled. I don't feel a "winner" is needed. Everyone was having fun and enjoying the awesome flying talent from where I sat. I was very disappointed with the equipment problems for Nick and Lukas as I expected to see their extreme flying talent showcased. I understand and can agree with what Dave said and, if prize money is involved, see how it helps distinguish flying skills. However, from an entertainment perspective, the stoppage for pack swaps sort of interrupted the rythm of the routine for me. Obviously, I am not an authority, but everyone flew awesome routines that were each a sort of a form of artistic expression that could stand on it's own. Kyle's precision, Bobby's entertainment, Jamie's timing to music, and much more were all fun to see and were each very unique.

It's all fun!

You make a GREAT point on the two part routines. It screws up the ONE theme it supposed to be followed, and indeed it was an ackward and disruptive pause.

I know they were trying to have the guys show their ability to fly compulsory manuevers plus a freesyle routine, but the stop to get new batteries or swap machines was too intrusive for everyone,

How about IF next year they fly their two compulsory and then blend into the freestyle. No two-packs, NO heli-swap.

ONE FLIGHT, ONE Chance, One heli flown, One Winner.

Rule 4.4 states--

"4.4 Each participant is encouraged to bring a back-up machine in the event that their primary machine won’t start or some other technical issue prior to flight."

I was there up close and in the front row.

Kyle won that competition hands down easily. He flew the Beast with grace and had one hell of a 3D demo.

His required maneuvers were the cleanest of the bunch...esp his piro flipping diamond with reversals

It's unfair to ask the guys to not bring a second set of packs esp if they have a required and 3d set. For the short amount of time they fly the required maneuvers they actually deplete quite a bit out of those packs...enough to warrant changing them for their 4ish min demos...typically the limit for a 3D E-Heli under heavy loads.
