The Xera motor was not delivered on time for the Speed Cup. If it would, the following name I pulled at the end was of Patrick Romary and it would have been his.

X-era

In all fairness, if the motor was on the table, it would have disapeared in the first 5 picks. Patrick was the name then came out after the last draw, and he would have never had a chance at it.

I PM you a suggestion, let me know what you think.

Edit,

Funny what happens when one (me) tries to apply reason to a "what if" after the fact.
The fact is, I pulled Patrick's name, and it is rightfully his.
Congrats my friend. I pm mikisimo has your shipping address.

Thanks misskimo and X-era for the great motor.
Perfect fot next year 14S open class.

Wanted to say I had fun competing in the speed cup again, even though I hold the slowest average time two years in a row it was a great time as well as an experience / confidence builder for me.

I had hopes of improving on my time from last year but with the added horizontal fly zone before the actual timed course, I came in even slower than I did in 2012. A 90 / 700 size bird gets pretty small on this course. You are out about 2.5 football fields when you turn around to come back.

Thanks to all the pilots that participated and took the time and money to make your helicopters a pleasure to watch.

Thanks to all the volunteers that helped run the event for two days.

Thank you Santiago for all your efforts to make this event what it is.
Thanks to all the sponsors of the Speed Cup event, for me especially Bavarian Demon, I was lucky enough to have my name drawn early and chose the one of a kind Bavarian Demon with 2013 Speed Cup label on it, what an awesome prize, Thank You Thank You Thank You.

What a great event! I was lucky to be able to volunteer and help out this year and Ill be back next year too. I may even jump in just for the fun of it next year and give Howard a way out of the basement. As a gate judge I can say the smaller birds do have a hard time getting all the way past the flag gate, its out there. Thanks for running a great event Santiago!

RIP ROMAN

Thank you guys
Bill did very well in defending the Diabolo honors by being fastest of minicopter, 1st time out.
The course is not easy to fly at all, but we knew that going into it.
Hopefully we will have some videos up soon.

Let me start posting a few photos
