Nano/Micro Quad- FLIPPING CONTEST!!

Hey guys, was thinking of having a nano/micro flip contest.
How many flips can u do on one charge with a quad??
I would like to know how the others compare too.
But flip anything RTF for 4 minutes! let's see who can do the most!

Rules:
1. Winning flipper must post vid here.
2. No editing, vid must show complete flip session in one cut, and please verbally count your flips in the video as u go to assist in documentation.
3. Only one charge per round, but try as much as you like up to "4 minutes"
4. Micro/Nano RTF Quads are welcome, no customs.
5. Crash is ok during session, if quad can continue to fly without repair or re-charge
6. No tossing to start flite, must take-off on it's own.
7. Time/Count starts with first flip, and ends when LVC lights flash or 4 minutes is reached.
8. MUST flip at least ONCE in every direction, so in order for this to be documented, flips must be able to be seen and count by view of video. There will be leeway to this, because with the aid of sound, one can tell when a flip is made when unit strays off camera, but the flips should stay distinguishable in video picture for the most part.
9. Unit MUST be powered by at least "4" motors
10. psychlic can not win contest prize. If psychlic is first place , then second place will receive grand prize, and so on down.....
11. Prizes will be mailed out within 7 days of contest end.
12. Contest will end February, 15, 20015 11:59p.m. PST

** JUNIOR CLASS**

I have decided to add a junior class for the kids!

RULES- Must be 14 years and under at time of vid to be in Junior Class.
All other rules from contest apply in Junior Class


There will be prizes offered by promoter- psychlic

Subject to increase for sure, if there are many contestant!

**1ST PLACE**- 2 sets of props for winning quad AND
1- Brand New- "Psychlic Modified- Bullet-Proof"- Red board- CX-10!
Color of your choice....................i even have black!

2ND PLACE- 2 sets of New Props for Winning Quad & 1 Set of 1206 nano motors
3RD PLACE- 1 Set of 1206 nano motors
4TH PLACE- 1- Sets of props for quad

#1 Place Prize for Junior Class-
1- NIB (new in box) Estes ProtoX

2ND PLACE- 1 Micro Spy camcorder
3RD PLACE- ??
4TH PLACE- ??



Post your vids at will...............there is no end date as of yet, probably in early March..............will be posted soon
it will probably depend on how many contestants are still placing first, but will be posted at later time.........

Post your vids at will, and see where you place in the quad flip realm!
but caution! it is not easy to do so many for a whole flite.
I will start the contest with this round.

This was my very first go at it and I did good so I will hold what I got and see what u guys can do.........................
have to see the vid to find out how many flips!
Good luck!!

If anyone would like to sweeten-up the "Grand Prize" for the winner,
it would not hurt my feelings.
I am tapped out at the moment! LOL!

I would definitely be interested in adding to the prize pot, can you please email me, I have some idea's for a prize I would like to add.

Email is
Dan [at] KillerLumens [dot] com.

This is assuming people like the idea and will compete, I wouldn't be ok with giving a prize with only 1 or 2 contestants but if people start to get into this I'm definitely intersted.

I was just thinking...................what should we do about the quads that are capable of multiple flips at once??
should they count too?
i think so, but it is open for discussion..............

Oh c'mon...
You must be kidding.

Spamming multiple threads with an announcement of an contest with automated flips allowed.
Very .............. challenging............

You should consider choosing the prices to fit for the quad itself as it does the thinking for you there.

The challenge is to see how many u can do, not the actual flip itself.
Try it, not as easy as u would think.

Do u think you could do more than 75 flips on one charge?

I would like to see anyone else do 75 flips on ANYTHING!
and that was just my first try with the brilliant CX-10

sorry for "spamming" as u put it. Just putting the word out.

This is just for fun Mike, not to achieve any great accomplishment.

LMAO! I just understood that now..............too funny!
you could give your prize to the quad if u like.
I did offer new props after all

Depending on how many post their rounds, the prizes could increase.................

but this is mostly for sport, to see who is the master Nano/Micro flipper, and which quad is the thoroughbred.

so how many could u do Mike, before u quit.................maybe 20??
psychlicfromusa can do *75*

and shoot, why not,
lets go ahead and count the multiple flippers, but I still don't think anyone will TOUCH ***75***

and everybody,
PLEASE post your vids anyway,
even if you do not approach the magic number to be first place,
you still may place 2, 3, 4th................who knows?

it will be much fun to see the attempts and the different fly styles!!
all vids are welcome, even if it is one (or 1/2) flip by a 5 year old child............... this is for fun!

bummer, sorry to hear that mm,
hhmm, I'm not much help with the Devos and deviation at the moment
I am having trouble myself trying to get the Devo 7e setup for the CX-10
i have installed the module for the CX-10 in the 7e, but I am having trouble doing the file writing changes.
I just don't know how to do that stuff, didn't know the Deviation required some of that.

Have u tryed asking on the CX-10 thread or Daryoon's Devo 7e thread?
I'm sure one of those threads, especially the Daryoon could help or steer u to help

thanks for the interest bud!
i hope u sort it out, and look forward to a vid of other flippers out there!
if there are more vids posted, the prize will be more than a couple sets of props.

OK, OK!! I give!.................to entice more to post vids for this contest I have revised the 1st place prize,

*** NEW GRAND PRIZE! ***

1- Brand New- "Psychlic Modified- Bullet-Proof"- Red board- CX-10!
Color of your choice....................i even have black!

MAGIC NUMBER RIGHT NOW IS "75" FLIPS by psychic, so first prize is still up for grabs.....................

a one flip vid could win grand prize right now because there have been no vids yet?

I'll try to make a video when I get my new motor! (7-22days)

I'm not sure I'll have enough battery to do that many flips haha.

Also that's an amazing prize!
