Time to take a break from reading and go fly/crash again! This is a great idea.

OK, I guess you should STILL make a distinction as to with WHAT TYPE of heli the challenges are completed (at least coax FP vs. single rotor 'FP, as it is actually easier to do some stuff with a single rotor CP than a FP and it is definitely easier to do stuff with a coax than with a single rotor FP!
Two examples here:
mCX landing on box of ink cartridge.wmv (1 min 1 sec)

I guess that compares about to the bounty roll ...

and here a comparison with a single rotor FP!! (sorry, took me a bit more than 40 seconds ... ...

V911 challenge BullsEye 2.AVI (3 min 26 sec)


which brings me back to my deadline question ... what if somebody completed the challenge already ... can you still put your video up ??

Sorry But... C'mon I had no choice, as there was so little paper on the roll the prop wash would knock it over as soon as I got close to it.

And... You have to admit that landing was pretty BAD A$$

You Sir, you are a star very nice videos

At first I thought you weren't going to qualify for the frequent flybys, as the challenge stated that you must land in your yard, but you went on to surprise us with a super cool landing in you yard
