I actually got see John fly at a local fly in last month and talked with him for a bit---great guy. He didnt fly anything electric that day but he flew his giant dalton edge and left everyone amazed.

My guess is that the top five would include one or two people we haven't even heard of...because they aren't sponsored or don't go to contests.

Probably so, but I didn't know how to spell their names.

I dont think it matters with a super freak I let Kyle fly my E-fight 260 indoors he was doing rolling harrier's in a 2ft area some guy said he's good. I said its Kyle. Kyle said my plane was tail heavy.

hey, i hear that guy Scott Stoops ain't half bad.
I read your book, (rest of quote from Patton here)....

Yeah Scott, i would not really be able to argue with your list.

Quique (Somenzini)
One thing for certain is that Quique is one of the most approachable and freindly guys around.

here are a few other names though
Gary Wright (All those noontime demos have been great)
Benoit Dierickx
Mike McConville
Bill Hempel
Josh Glavin
Chris Hinson
Andrew Jeski

Every one of these guys (and many others i forgot) is so much better than i am that it really doesn't matter which one you get to watch, you're in for a show!
