Who do you think are the top five electric 3D Heli pilots in the nation?

Guys I need some help...just trying to put a list together. Who do you think are the top 5 electric 3D heli pilots in the nation. Size doesn't matter.

USA... Hmmm

Well I think we all know ASJ is there, then of course Curtis, then lets see,,,,,Bobby Watts, Henry Caldwell has to be said as he is just to crazy lol, and well may as well throw Danny Szabo or Jason Krause in there as well. As many know there are several pilots "worldwide" who are as good and better in some cases than this list to...

Looking for pilots to sponsor? I doubt you'll get anyone on that list.

You did notice that Curtis got 3rd place at the F3C worlds flying a electric? I bet that next WC the electrics will take the majority of the top spots.

Your Question is who do we think is the best Electric 3D guys out their.
I think that this is a pretty hard question to answer. Very one of us fly a little different. All are doing 3D but is in our own style and one person may like it and the other one hate it. But is still 3D. Look at the way Curtis flys compaired to say Alan, both are very good pilots but a little different style.

Looking at all the top guys posted from misskimo and OICU812 posts they are all great guys to watch fly, but most of them fly more nitro then elec.


There is a lot of guys on this site that really stay back and don't let on how well they really fly and most of them are all elec. guys. If you are looking for someone that flys only electric 3D I would sit back and watch some videos posted on this site.

Are you kidding me?

I agree with David. Curtis and Danny are both extremely good pilots but are worlds apart in style. Curtis is very smooth and Danny is balls to the wall smack-n-jerk. The answers you'll get are purely personal opinion. Maybe you should have added a poll on who people liked best.

I like watching Gary Wright flying E and . Curtis is my overall fav to watch but he is mainly nitro still. The day he goes E only wil be a great day.
