Default Controlled Flight Video Challenge

Ok, this may have been done before, but I thought it might be cool to see some videos of Freaks flying their helis in a very controlled manor. All the time we see videos of folks tearing up the skies, doing what looks like out of control 3D flying. What I would like to see is video of people flying symmetrical circuits, remote circuits, stationary piros, moving piros, eights, slow controlled flight, were we can see mastery of the basic eight flight orientations. I saw a video Finless posted with his 250 doing nice rectangular patterns at a very cool looking field in the mountains, If you read this Bob put it up so folks know what I'm talking about! If you have a video of this kind of flight post it up for the masses to view!

Ahhh a freak friend!
I am looking forward to this thread, I loose interest in videos where I can't make out what the heli is meant to be doing. Sure it is very impressive and very skilled but I too like the smooth flying style like Jason Krause.
Peter.

In the beginning he does pretty much all the orientation, then he went crazy, Nice flying sly but that music put me to slp

Oh for sure.. I've been working on the 8 orientations for 1-3 hours per night now since winter has started (over 2 full months with 2 more to go) I PLAN on making that sim a reality... (I hope)

OK guys just want to keep this on track... Videos of you flying, I know Jason is a inspiration to many freaks, but this thread is about us, the Freaks.

It will be three years in June, I have flown every day work ,weather, or weddings didn't get in the way! That heli has more time sliding threw the grass beating it's self up than most 450s have in the air! LOL! It was my first real heli, there is not one of the original parts on it, but that canopy has been around since November of 2007 My total flight time, is up around 450 hours, and I have no idea how much time on the sim. I have two 5 gallon buckets full of broken parts! I'm a bit of a "slow learner"

I do love the hobby, but I do not make a good marker pole, many of my field mates have flown for less time and are better!
