Trouble with smaller events is when you are not flying you are judging. Not a lot of video. Eaton did post some on Facebook from Mike flying set maneuvers and freestyle F3N.

Got to see the video of set maneuvers, but can't find freestyle. It would be great if these videos were on YouTube to promote our country and F3N!

The Mid-Atlantic Heli Championships kicked off with practice on Friday, June 16 and the competition began on Saturday the 17th. The weather forecast was a little shaky this year, with thunderstorms predicted, but the rain never delayed the contest. On Saturday morning, four new competitors took to the field, in the Sportsman class, to show ultimate control of their model helicopters, along with two Advanced competitors and two F3N competitors.
F3N is a newly added class to the Mid-Atlantic Heli Championships, and it shows promise in challenging the pilots and pleasing the crowd with a demonstration of precision freestyle flight. After a pilot’s meeting, to describe how the rounds would commence and be judged, everyone was ready. With smaller contests, pilots complete judging for one another and the results are saved until the completion of the competition. As the morning gave way to afternoon, the pilots took a break and flying switched from the back flight line to the front. Plenty of water and sunscreen was used as the late afternoon continued. As evening began, pilots began to finish their rounds. All sorts of different sizes and manufacturers of models were used for the competition. Everything from an Align 450 to a Synergy N7 was flown. Once the points were tallied, the awards sponsored by Hobby Hangar were presented.

AMA Sportsman – Class 431
1. Kasey Campbell - 4000
2. Rob McClellan - 3818
3. Devin McClellan - 3356
4. Ernie Flabbi - 2444

AMA Advanced – Class 432
1. Robert Montee - 4000
2. Eaton Bryce - 3338

FAI F3N - 435
1. Mike Dipalo - 4000
2. Robert Montee - 3622

Big thank you to all those who attended, volunteered and made the event great!!
