RC! You didn't post the pics bud. Oh well, I got on site about 9:30 this AM and baked in the sun at 90F all day long. Good seat, pretty good action so far, but have not seen Pinion make an appearance yet. One guy, I am assuming with THC had Pinion on his demo tape, so that was cool. Bobby Watts as always has the showmanship angle covered very nicely. There is a pretty young girl that has been flying planks only one year that is really throwing down on the planks!
What my impressions of the first day are so far: I am underwhelmed by the Goblin so far. I mean it's ok, but something about it is just off. Kyle Stacy ditched the Logo 800 for it, and I DO like the Goblin better than the Logo 800! In fact, NO one is flying the 800 in competition this year, which I am glad to see. It is just too big and lumbering to do good 3D. A couple guys are flying the new Logo 700, which I think IS better than the 800 but still not nearly as good and agile as the 600. For that reason, I am very glad to see that Jamie Robertson is sticking with the 600 for competition! Now, the only other heli that is really impressing me is the Gaui X7. Bobby Watts and one other kid are flying it and it looks almost as good as the Logo 600.
Here are my heli equipment rankings:
