Just returned from a really nice weekend at this event.
First time I went, I took my son as well who enjoyed it, was really warm sitting in the stands so got a nice tan.

Some lovely helicopters, but nothing new since Jetpower, it seems to mainly be focussed now on 3D, the amount of hard 3D displays there were did become a bit tedious after a while, but the amount of carnage there displays resulted in did make it interesting as they pushed the limits to the ever rousing crowd.
One thing I was impressed with was how FBL technology has moved on there was only 3 helicopters over the 2 days that had a fly bar..
even on the scale they all had stabilisation.

Was interesting seeing a couple of large scale models perform a full Auto, they came down fast and but landed on the spot, one was the Brietling EC135, not sure if it was 1/4 or 1/5.

Also was interested to see how many Hard 3D Pilots were using multi blade heads to preform their routines, a lot started off at a really slow head speed must of been around 1000 or even less, they performed nice slow flips etc and then went into idle up to perform their manic routines. I had to wake up then..

Was good to catch up with friends. Photos to follow

there was a lot of small 250/150 size multi bladed head scale models, nice for the indoor events especially for bad weather days, the scale detail on these ready to fly out of the box was really high class from tiny rivet details to scale attachments working scale features and full light system that replicate the full size.

All The Best

Hi Dave,

The fuse we were talking about is still delayed at the factory so don't know when yet that one will be done... My mechanics are in good shape and am thinking about using them in the new Vario 429 which is supposed to make it to the states late spring I'm hearing. Did you see it at the show, thoughts??

I've been working on a 1/5'ish MD500E and getting close to being done but the blades, head (both from Germany), and Vbar have been painful to get dialed in. Think its the blades, first time I've tried this brand. Hope to try some different ones next week.

What's new with you?

A couple of things missed by Matt from Vario.....

New project being worked on - 2 meter diameter AH64 - initially for electric with a turbine version to follow at some time.

The picture was being displayed on an ipad under one of the display models.

Also approaching release times very soon - Electric MD900, BO105 / T-Rex 700 combo and electric Chinook.
