Default Top 3 Best RC Heli pilots today....who are they???

Just watching various youtube clips of various pilots in action and I'd like to see the best in action. So who are the top 3??? The Szabo brothers, Tareq Alsadi, Curtis Young Youngblood??? Thoughts...

just kidding It depends on what kind of flying you consider to be superior. Personally I think that more precision-oriented 3D is more impressive than stick-banging. "Just looks like a 5 minute long radio glitch" I heard one planker say once, and I have to agree somewhat. But in the end it's whatever you like.

For me I think it would be
Tareq (he's somewhere beyond I think)
Bert K

I vote for me ! Why you ask ? Because I have the most fun watching my helis being flown by me.


To many different flight styles to compare who is best, and it really isn't important who is anyways.

Impossible to answer do to style and in many cases we haven't seen all sides o some pilots abilities. For example while tareq an pop n lock low smack we don't see him doing extreme technical like Kyle Dahl but maybe he can do that to, know what I mean Vern?

Those guys are most definitely good, but I really enjoyed watching Marcus Kim fly right down on the deck when he was here in Huntsville back in April. That "kid" can throw down with the best of them!!!

i'm fairly impressed by Tareq Alsaadi right now, although it looks like he has trouble keeping his blades out of the dirt!

lol
this is such a loaded question.
As some have said, it really depends on what style of flying you like.

I don't think there is a best persay. I know the pilots I like to watch and some that people think are the best, that I really don't appreciate their style. Not to say they aren't good, just not what I really like to watch etc...

I like Nick Maxwell, Matt Botos and the third is very hard for me to pronounce myself on.

I vote for me as well.
But I must admit I do not enjoy watching helis being flown by me.(ignorance is bliss).
I am also in the "who cares" camp.
