New French VTPR aerobatics videos - Remi and Eric are back!!

GET STOKED!!!

Rémi Le Besque and Eric Poulain have made some new videos of their flying this summer in Brittany!! It's been a long time since we've seen anything new from these guys, but oh man, am I stoked to see them put out something new!

They are flying the Excalibur 2, a VTPR glider designed by Eric with inspiration from the Quartz of Francois Cahour. The Excalibur is one of the most famous and beloved French VTPR designs, and with good reason!!

In case you are new to VTPR and slope aerobatics, Eric and Rémi are two of the best-known French R/C glider aerobatics pilots and widely considered the original masters of VTPR . Their video Menez-Hom 2005 was hugely inspirational worldwide and helped build interest in VTPR and slope aerobatics here in the US especially.

They also fly F3A and 3D powered aerobatics but love to get out to the slopes of Brittany when they can. If I'm not mistaken, they have both (and I think Rémi still does) fly for the Breton F3A team along with Benoit Paysant Le Roux (legendary creator of the Madslide glider and an extremely talented F3A and 3D pilot himself).

Anyways, long story short, it's very exciting to see some new videos from Rémi and Eric!! Enjoy!!!
