Great information!! Thank you all for your kind responses!!
Unfortunately, I have run into a number of 3D guys who tend to look down upon any flying style other than 3D.
I find that with airplane 3d guys as well. We are all out there trying to have a good time, no need to look down on others. I really enjoy teaching someone how to fly, young or old still the same results Smiles!!

Take off's are optional, Landings are mandatory!

I did not know there were as many sport flyers who are still trying to make perfect hovers, loops, and roles at all orientations. That is my challenge to date and I love learning the control.

I think the people that look down I others would with anything they do . I've met a few that can't out fly me and still look down on me . I feel some are mistaken as looking down on others but instead are just really focused and driven to not crash or hurt anyone .

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

You have it nailed Scott. Unfortunately, I have run into a number of 3D guys who tend to look down upon any flying style other than 3D.
Know what the answer to that is? F$&@ them. That's just stupid.

Here is my philosophy.. If you have seen a pilot perform a maneuver that you think is interesting.. find out how to complete it and then give it a try. Whatever makes your life enhanced or makes you happy is the key. Remove all these labels like novice, sport or 3D pilot from your mind.. Labels are for the weak minded.

Model helicopter flying should just be fun!

Unless you actually make your living flying R/C helis, it's all sport/hobby flying, regardless of type.

Take a group of people who have never experienced hobby grade rc helicopter flight and do a sport demo and a 3d demo for them. They will always prefer the sport flight over the 3d flight. They can relate to sport because it looks more normal. We may think 3d is more impressive because we know the work it takes to get there but for the uninitiated 3d looks like the longest crash we have ever seen. We need to fly for ourselves, not for what other people think.

I remember responding to a post about Piro flips...according to the OP and a buddy of his, they were like everybody was doing them...I found this to be a bit arrogant in a way and putting down sport/scale pilots...I belive the sport crowd outnumbers the 3D bunch 100 to 1 when it comes to helis 150 class and over.

Fly how it makes you happy.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

That's right, I know guys that have told me they thought they could just buy a heli and fly it...no concept whatsoever!

I really don't care what other people think of me or my flying style...
just ask my friends...they will tell you I'm a jerk

Before flying helicopters I was very interested in plank pattern flying.This was in the early 1990's The degree of precision required to perform the most basic routines such as three loops,,,all superimposed,, at the same altitude and the same distance and speed from the pilot ,,seems simple but will drive you crazy and require much practice to achieve...never mind while under pressure at a competition. .This isn't 3D but at least as challenging ,,,It all depends what your interests are.

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

What do I enjoy about these whirly things?? the mechcanix,setup and what makes them tick. I now have 6 birds and they all fly different, that's what makes it fun and interesting not too mention "challenging!

I flew Ucontrol for many years then got bored with that and got the fixed wing RC bug,then got bored/burned out with that and started playing around with these whirly things and have been sticking with it, why??? its a challenge and gives me something to think about and keeps my mind busy, I personally will never learn everything their is to know about these whirly things, but its fun learning. If I could fly helis like fixed wing the world would be right! but were workin on it

CAUTION!!! politicians may be hazerdous to your well being
