Question choice flying demo videos for non-initiates?

Hi,

I've put up a couple of web pages to show my heli friends what high-end foosball looks like, and my foosing friends what all the heli noise is about.

I seeded my effort with a couple of more-or-less arbitrary clips from each domain.

http://tinyurl.com/komhml

If you only could show somebody 2 or 3 videos as examples of the hobby, what choices would you make?

I think we're looking for: a combination of flying styles; HQ video; no login required; good camera, quality and production; and maybe good music, either live or soundtrack.

Thanks in advance!

Jim

Jason Krause's T-rex 500 front yard video is still one of my all time favorites.

Alan Szabo's sunday the lake video is still one of the most impressive videos of all time IMO.

I'll make it simple for you and your friends. Just ask them to type in "gorgin4325" in YouTube and grab some popcorn, and start watching the videos I put up there...

G

Yes and yes. We live 10-15 minutes away from each other and regularly hang out and fly together.

He is the reason I can fly 3D now! Very helpful guy that never hesitates to give back to the hobby...

OK who's got the link to the Raptor 90 vid off of the warship. That's a great one IMO to show someone new. Great scenery, great flying, and a good soundtrack while still allowing you to hear the heli.
