We have done the firework thing at events here in Louisiana. Here is an old video I took of a friend flying through them at one local event. It's pretty cool to watch!

Continuing with IRCHA videos

Here is Marco Ceze. He flew at Battle of the Brands. I was fortunate to be pitting with him and witness several of his flights. He has become a really good pilot really quick.

Have always been amazed at how in the world they are able to keep their orientation through all the smoke/fire mess up there, but don't think I ever seen one crash from it! Quite the show......

We will always think our skills are lower than someone else's. It's just the nature of things. Seemed like you fly pretty well to me and you also seem to really enjoy flying your Specter. Especially for as long as you've been flying. Next time I want to see those piro flips you've been working on

I always come away from flying thinking I need much more sim time.

I do very much enjoy the specter. I'm still working on those piro flips in the sim! Both you and Javier though put on entertaining flights. I will get there I imagine. Not there yet tho!

My flights are pretty boring most of the time. I remember it wasn't that long ago that you were saying you'd never get pflips in the sim. And now?

A couple more videos. One from Bill Ann of Kyle Stacy in his Battle of the Brands flight and another of Caleb Turner from Only Fine Helis. Legend says that Caleb only flies at fun flies and doesn't really practice much. Pure natural talent.

And today's video from none other than Ben Key. I had not watched him fly. Very solid in many orientations.

I wasn't able to make it to IRCHA this year (still bummed), but is there a thread/list/location that was keeping track of any new products that were shown/talked about/announced at IRCHA 2021? For example, I saw there was an 800 SAB Goblin Maverick, and also an updated Scorpion Tribunus that will be released shortly.

Any help would be appreciated.

This year it was more of a fun fly than a trade show. Personally I didn't keep up with what I thought were the few things debuted at IRCHA. I think there were mostly no surprises, so things were announced before IRCHA and just physically available there. Of what I can recall...

SAB Maverick 800
SAB Mini Comet new colors
Oxy Flash
XLPower Spectre 700 v2
