I have witnessed countless flights in which he performs a variety of maneuvers that others are incapable of.
Bold statement. Got any video of Henry doing these maneuvers that no one else can do?

Flybars. Who needs `em.

Yea I gotta agree, I don't think there is a move that peeps like Danny J, Jamie R, Lukas etc can't do ... like seriously. H2 the C is no doubt talented but these young guns can do it all really...

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Tareq is on top of my favorite pilots list... Videos don't do him justice... Watching him fly in person is a completely different feeling...

Other pilots in my list are Lukas Riva, Bobby Watts, Bert Kammerer, Alan Szabo Jr., and of course Dominik Haegele. I had to get a 1TB external hard drive to save all their videos...

Regards,
G

I quite agree with Gorgin....Saw Tareq fly recently in Dubai. Man he simply rocks. To see him fly is "Tango in the Sky"....I have not seen anyone else fly in person But whatever videos I have seen recently Tareq stands out.
What I also feel is that he is too humble n simple and needs someone to publicize his skill better. Sponsors are you listening ???

Well l can do inverted autos no problem but l`m sure Henry would out fly me blindfolded with his hands tied behind his back. You weren`t comparing him with me though, show me something no one else can do.

Flybars. Who needs `em.

Tosh,
Why dont you post some videos of the Pop-n-lock gang doing something other than smacking their helicopters back and forth and up a down in a box. Tick tocks and rainbows get a little old after you have seen 500 videos of top pilots doing the same ole thing ! Aside from a few, the likes of Granzow, Robertson, Maxwell, Caldwell who all can perform a multitude of flying techniques the vast majority of todays young aspiring pilots all do the same maneuvers. Variety - its the "spice of life".

Forgive me Tosh,
Your right, I have seen countless pilots performing inverted autos under tents then landing on table tops. Regrettably, I was only able to come up with the one that I could find. Perhaps you could provide some videos of your own seeing that inverted auto's are "no problem" for you and why not throw in one or two showing a table top landing after having brought it in under a tent. I'll be here all day -Looking forward to see you "bring it on" !

l didn`t say l could land one on a table and l never said Henry was anything other than a great flyer. Why are we even talking about my flying? You said

l said lets see `em.
You put one up which is a very nice piece of flying but l doubt it`s beyond the best guys in the world. Even so l`m interested to see this VARIETY of maneuvers that others are incapable of.

Honestly, there are really so many great pilots out there today that it's hard to even limit a list to 10. What about guys like Duncan Osborn, Steven Gerrard or Colin Bell? (Just to name 3 more.)

Things are VERY different from when I got into the hobby 6 or 7 years ago when there were maybe a handfull of REALLY great pilots around the world. Cheaper machines, simulators and a youth movement have really swelled the ranks of the "holy crap how does he do that" pilot listing.

For 4-10 Aside from Alon, there is a 10 year old (oldest for the group) Young-Rok Son from Korea. Let see how Alon and Young-Rok duke it out at the 3DM Masters class this year.

And I'd vote fore 13-14 year old Jae-Hong Lee for his FAI & 3D.
