Thank you, Steve!

VARCHA  club event in culpeper Virginia was held on May 19-23rd 2010.

Here is a comment from Scott.

 I was able to fly to the event in Virgina, USA by my own small airplane rather than driving 11 hours! Team JR Bill Tinsley F3C pilot came with me in the airplane to the event. It took about 4 hours flight time, and we had to cross the US border and customs at Niagara Falls New York airport. We put 4 JR 90 size helis, 2 12X transmitters, tools, fuel, and clothes in the back and flew to small airport near the event. The little Piper Cherokee airplane was full and maximum weight!

Also attending the event was Markus Kim famous 3D pilot and Bill Jackson 3D pilot. The event was organized to be 4-day event with us four expert pilots helping student heli pilots to learn better setup and flying techniques. We also used JR buddy box to train with many helis and pilots.

In the end, I setup and tuned about 15-20 helis and flew all of them to check settings and test fly. Everyone seemed very happy to have good setups in their helicopters now and better tuned engines!

 Interestingly, there is increased popularity of F3C style flying lately... many pilots want to try FAI style flying.

We also did many demo flights throughout each day. I flew Vibe90SG flybarless, and SY90 F3C 2009 WC heli many times.

Attendance: approx 30 pilots     

Helis: 5 JR SY90, 5 Vibe 90SG, Vibe 50s, and other helis such as Align, Avant, Minicopter.     

Power: Most helis at this event were Nitro (70% nitro, 30% electric)                

Radios: 90% JR and Spektrum, 10% Futaba
