Year after year, the guys up in Bakersfield put on a great show in May. This year was no exception. Even though registration was down from last year, there was still plenty of flying on one of the best fields out there. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, and with appearances by Tim Jones and Jason Bell, the fun fly turned out to be a big hit.
Also to note, A Main Hobbies had a major presence at this event with more pilots there than you could count, representing their new TZ Frenzy 50 Helicopter. Their star pilot, Ben Storick, was burning gallons throughout the day, representing the machine.
Due to the overwhelming success with the first installment of flight instruction, I will continue doing videos. Please take a minute to participate in this poll for the next maneuver. Send me an email if you have any suggestions for other maneuvers to add to this list or just comment.
The long awaited new paint scheme from Canomod is finally here and in stock. Both the original 700N canopy along with the alternative 700N V2 design are available.
The newest mounts from RCBooya are looking HOT! The new AVT series has been redesigned to ensure that you will never lose a thumb screw again! These come in several styles for different helis.
