I really like 1:15~1:33 or so....I know that the tricks they do are complicated and difficult but they all look generic and exactly the same. I love it when they slow it down and you actually see what the machine is doing.

Honestly??? "Good" is all relative and I find FAI-F3C flying more impressive. I actually find the slow technically challening maneuver harder to do. "stick banging" certainly is fast and furious and I don't want to take anything away from those that have the skill but it just doesn't interest me.

I'd want some chain link between me and those 700s on the flight line. I'd be a viewer 100 feet away and still thinking about where to duck.

Fly like that with lights, at night... and you just might break the record for UFO calls.

Makes me wonder if the military had something like these way back when...

I really enjoyed watching the kids fly. I really should become a better pilot so I can teach my boy. I am just beginning with the helis.
