They are both possible to stand on the podium.
Firstly  Uwe Kiesewetter . Performed very carefull hovering manoeuvres.
He received applause from the crowd during his performance, "loop and roll" .
But unfortunately  next manoeuvre "flip with harf roll" didn't go well and this led his score
hold down.
Uwe Kiesewetter 207.5 points


Nextly  Bernhard Egger . According to him,compare to engine helicopter, it is difficult to
get used to with because feeling of  hovering is different. But as far as looking at his
performance,he never look like he is having any difficulity but he is handling very well.
Though expected a high score,coldn't reach to Fabio Livi .
Bernhard Egger 214.5 points

Detroit Michigan USA 2010

There was an annual heli event in Detroit on 25th to 27th/June.

Here is a report from Scott.

New Team JR/Horizon member "Big D" Darrell Bell put on another annual
heli event in Detroit.  The field is nice with 3 flight lines. 
About 110 pilots attended including many well known heli pilots 
representing most heli brands.  

Event was 3 days of general flying and demos.  I did some setups for
people and allowed some pilots to fly my Vibe 90SG heli.  
This went well until during one flight with another pilot at the 
controls it boom struck and crashed!  Turns out it was older O-ring 
dampeners and this probably allowed too much blade movement.  
Damage was not too bad,and even though there was a crash, those who
tried it really liked how it flew!

I also flew Super Gracy with SY90 and flybarless Vibe 90SG.
Flybarless helis are becoming very popular, and there were many types 
at this event.

Most pilots had JR servos, JR or Spektrum radios, and about 50% nitro,
50% electric helis.  Seems most pilots like Nitro for bigger helis 
since it is less charging and batteries to carry around.  
Nitro was more popular for 90 size 3D helis.

A great event, relaxed atmosphere with good friends and pilots.
