Coffs Harbour Heli Fest
19th - 22nd May 2011

The Coffs Helifest was very successful with approximately 150 pilots attending including Bobby Watts and Bert Kammerer from the USA.

Our team pilots flew the Vibe NEX-E8 and Vibe 50 NEX together with Vibe 90SG.

They reported to me that the interest level was very high for the Nex-E8. Our pilots were very happy and impressed with how it flew.

gamcup02 gamcup03 gamcup04

gamcup05 gamcup06 gamcup07

A very large area of the practice field for actual airplanes was chartered.

There were various competitions/games such as helicopter 3D free style,F3A competition, Scale models and "knock down bottles" game.
Everyone from beginners to advanced could enjoy this competition event.
We were overwhelmed by so many participants and audiences there.

We JR sent 3 pilots for demo flight.
Mark Leseberg from USA, very famous for giant scale airplane, Chen Zarfati from Israel, well-known 3D helicopter pilot and Uchida from JR staff.
People cheered for a splendid and spectacular performance by Mark's acrobatic flight with giant gasoline model.
Even the local 3D flyer were thrilled by Chen's world's top level 3D flight with VIBE SG E12.
JR Uchida made an appeal to people, a high quality and high performance of GSR260Z and opened the possibility of expanding more JR products in China.

They always lightly complied with people who asking for their autograph and pictures after their flights.
That's really a champion!
