Lukas Riva shows us how to “fish” at the 2009 Pitchbrothers smackdown. As you can see he is very good at it!
Danny Szabo test flying the prototype of the new Ely.Q Vision 50 Competition. This is an all metal head, carbon fiber frame version of the Vision 50.
Brandon said he was a little Rusty but it looks like he got the WD-40 out and sprayed it on his hands. This was a pretty good flight. Looks like Augusto from Team Avant is trying to get his team back on the map. They have been having a good showing here in California. I [...]
Pete Novotny designer of Torison Blades came all the way from Czech Republic to participate in the San Diego Fun Fly this past weekend. He demonstrated the Torsion 600mm Carbon Fiber blades on his Compass Knight 3D 50 heli. For more info on Torsion Blades visit their site HERE, or to purchase in the US [...]
The Synergy N5 lives! I can’t wait to see it with a canopy. I hate shooting videos without a canopy. Since there is no canopy yet for this helicopter I will have to make due. This is a nice video of Matt Botos flying the Synergy N5 at the 2009 Huntsville Fun-Fly.
This starter is brand new from Align, it’s not quite ready yet but it will soon. It’s capable of starting a 90 sized engine all the way up to a 50CC gas engine. The motor is geared down so it has much more torque than the usual direct drive systems most other starters have.
This is my first attempt of making a video trailer mixing several clips together of different flights from Kenny, Sam, and Sean. Hope you enjoy it! Filmed on location at the 2009 Othello Fun Fly in Othello, WA. The season opener for the Pacific NW summer fun fly schedule.
This guy is all over the place now. Just about at every fun-fly in the country. Here is his warm up flight at the 2009 San Diego Fun-Fly.
Here is the second gallery for the Palomar funfly. Check back for more video uploads in the next few days.
I have never been able to get an entire flight of Curtis Flying anything except a 90. I was determined to try it this time so I asked him to give me a little slack. I kept up with him pretty good but it was alot of work keeping up with this legend.
Stayed up all night and cranked it out…6 hours of sweat and fingerprints on my keyboard. Trying to be a little more diverse in our coverage. More videos coming tomorrow (may last day off) so stay tuned.
Sometimes you see him and sometimes you don’t. Every time I see this guy fly I wonder why doesn’t he fly in more competitions because his execution is so unique. There seems to be a trend going more “smackdown” but Jason’s flights are exciting even without that style of flight. Judge for yourself.
Lower attendance seems to be a trend this year at events, however the people down in San Diego still put on an amazing show. There was no wait at the flight line so you could go up whenever you wanted. Many pros made their way to this event, including Curtis Youngblood, Nick Maxwell, Ben Storick, Jason Krause, Ray Nemovy, Erick Stolz, Jason Bell, Brandom Updike, and Tim Jones who put on an amazing show. I spent the whole day taking pictures, infact 700 or so, so there will be two galleries for you all to enjoy-
This is an amazing flight from now “out of retirement” Ian Crane who is sliding over to the Align side of things. Check out this amazing flight on his Align T-Rex 700.
