How about a flybar only 3D competition? Lets see the pros do all those fancy moves with a flybarred heli!

60% of the time, it works every time!

Honestly when flipping and tumbling is involved, the FB vs. FBL makes little difference. I think where FB is hard is in tracking. So large maneuvers...

We used to mix the helis to fly straight much like what the fbl controllers do now.

I think a cool competition @ IRCHA would be something like this... 6 or 8 identical helis, maybe supplied by a group of manufacturers. Same engine/pipe & fuel if nitro OR same motor, ESC & batts if electric. All FB with same paddles, servos & tail gyro.
Each pilot OR team gets an hour to set-up the heli, then they get 2 flights, 1 with set maneuvers all pilots gotta fly, then a cut-loose Smack-Down free flight.
Couple guys to judge OR some judges & other pilots combined to decide winner.
This would highlight the pilots skills more than the heli setup...

Kind of like the 'King of the Mountain' contests that went on @ ski resorts.. Same Dual race course, but each racer had to race in a group on skis as 1/2 their score, then race in a group on snowboards as the other 1/2.. Best combined time was winner.

Maybe make it a Charity Event thing, with a trophy tagged with winner's name OR team name each year -PLUS Bragging Rights

There are a few contests like that 3dm, xfc. They all used to fly mechanical setup flybarred heads with OS 90s on them. 2009 and 2010 were the big years of change from what I remember. Even though I was on the plane side of things .
