Vote for the winner of the 2nd Annual Video Contest!

Alright folks, it's time to "pick a winner!"

We had some really nice submissions this year, and the top five finishers will receive prizes. What prizes? Why let's review, Johnny...

54" Destiny (Value: $219)

Leading Edge Gliders
Le Fish (Value: $119)

Leading Edge Gliders
Guppy (Value: $98)

Future Slope Designs
Orbus 36 (Value: $55)

Dream Flight
Alula (Value: $50)

FIVE AIRPLANE KITS! Pretty freakin' sweet!!! Big thank you to our sponsors!!

As noted in the contest thread, each participant had to post a 3 minute or less video of their very best slope aerobatics flying (however they chose to define "slope aerobatics"). We've got a wide range of great stuff to choose from, all of which have been reposted here.

Voting: Vote once for your favorite video.

Voting ends on Friday September 5th at 9:00PM Pacific

Have fun! May the best slope aerobatics video win!

Guys, sorry to have to do this but I didn't realize till after the poll was posted that Thepasty & Hexosex submitted the exact same video as two separate entries... I think they meant for it to be one?

In any event, since voting has already begun, rather than delete and recreate the poll, I have combined Thepasty & Hexosex's entries to one entry. Votes for either Thepasty or Hexosex will be counted together, and they'll have to find a way to split any prize which results! Sorry guys, two entries of the same video doesn't cut it as two unique entries, even if two different people posted it.

I'm just sorry I didn't understand that they were the exact same video sooner... my bad.

I liked the Innovative landing gear/air "break" on the "VTPRXXL08" but had to stay with dawsonh anyway.

Soz Surfpimp () i guess I should have retracted mine, been busy at work which is way hexo redid the quality on the vid i posted.

We agreed we'd share any prize, seeing as we both played a part in the vid.

Next year you'll defo have one from both of us

@Thepasty & Hexosex - sorry gents I just didn't grok what was going on. My oldest boy was asking me to play the same time I was posting and I was a bit distracted. All's well that ends well, though - no worries

That Pike looks just like the one I had in my garage awhile back, Russ makes flying an art form.

Nice use of the Shins I'll have to buy there newer album soon.
