If there is no video, it didn't happen.

If Hovering provides the ability to test the resistance of the tera firma and there is no video...Did it really crash?

Here's my feeble attempt...

Hangar 9 Twist 40 OS 70 Ultimate four stroke 3D RC Airplane Twistaholic Ho-Down Hovering Contest (3 min 43 sec)


The tail touch was legit. I have witnesses. ... well, A witness.

LOL 2nd? pfffft!

Hopefully I can get a decent camera Sunday and the AMA police aren't being lame...

Just admit I smoked ya, plowboy. It won't hurt as much when the video quality is better that way.

LOL! I really don't think you smoked me Eric, but you did rock the $ hit outta that thing!! FO SHO! To tell you the truth, I'm glad someone else finally did something competitive.

Too bad for you that my plane isn't quite dead yet. Although, I don't know where we go from here. We both managed to touch the tail of a Twist 40 in a "how low can you go" contest. Are we supposed to drag it around the field on the rudder now? I don't see that happening, do you?

Anyway, great job, really. My hat is off to you, but my head is not bowed.

I think it should be as close to you and as low and as for long and steady the hover is

Eric video was great but hard to see at times.

The hard part for me is to hover for a long time

and then what you are hovering over also makes a diference

someone who hovers over water for an extended period of time in my books wins

but we got to see the plane actually hover, I was only kidding about useing gyros, that is cheating
