Here are the unedited videos I made of the helicopter funfly.


Amain hobbies (at amainhobbies.com) was nice enough to drive all the way from California to be one of our sponsers. Here's a short video of one of their pilots flying on friday:

A few people got up early enough on Saturday to set up and get in a 'warmup' flight. Here's a look at the flight line and of Anson Hargrove, and our own Raymond making a couple of early flights:

Dario started the official  event with a quick pilot briefing:


<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/crXHB4I6H9o&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/crXHB4I6H9o&hl=en_US&fs=1&" mce_src="http://www.youtube.com/v/crXHB4I6H9o&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>


The novice event was a little harder than it looks!:


<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/EwFEHGp5cdU&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/EwFEHGp5cdU&hl=en_US&fs=1&" mce_src="http://www.youtube.com/v/EwFEHGp5cdU&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>


Soak the clown put on a good show for the children (young and old.):


<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/dE-awhixunM&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/dE-awhixunM&hl=en_US&fs=1&" mce_src="http://www.youtube.com/v/dE-awhixunM&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>


The wind started blowing fairly hard before the intermediate event started. This resulted in a crash for one of the contestants, but he had his heli up and flying in short order:


<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/hzlY0lkpNh0&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/hzlY0lkpNh0&hl=en_US&fs=1&" mce_src="http://www.youtube.com/v/hzlY0lkpNh0&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>


We had a visit from a full size helicopter during the event. A Schweitzer 300 flew in and let everyone get up close and look it over:


<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/J8Kq_BBPBuU&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/J8Kq_BBPBuU&hl=en_US&fs=1&" mce_src="http://www.youtube.com/v/J8Kq_BBPBuU&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>


Another break in the action was enjoyed. The guys tried their hands at 'speed fueling':


<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/VwLpph0HJsQ&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/VwLpph0HJsQ&hl=en_US&fs=1&" mce_src="http://www.youtube.com/v/VwLpph0HJsQ&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>


The experts showed their skills by doing spot autorotations in a 20 mph wind:


<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/vihEKg9tFk8&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/vihEKg9tFk8&hl=en_US&fs=1&" mce_src="http://www.youtube.com/v/vihEKg9tFk8&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>


Keep in mind these are all  unedited. You get the bad with what ever little good there happens to be ;) .
