Our favourite RC heli pilot, Ian Emery, popped in today & dropped off this fantastic vid & meet report from his adventures last weekend...
"The long winter was finally over and it was time for the first AHA Competition of the year at Tring, Buckinghamshire. This year I was progressing from the Clubman’s (entry level league) to Sportsman’s (Intermediates) and having practised the new set of manoeuvres relentlessly over the past couple of months I felt optimistic about the year ahead. Little did I know that a decision had been made to cancel any competition with less than 4 people competing in that particular class.
Thanks for updating us Ian. All we can say is WOW! What a step up, no doubt richly deserved - no surprises Ian's a bit edgy to be heading into the F3C leagues though, as this is basically the qualifying stage for the British Team - it must be a bit like passing your driving test & then qualifying to race for Mclaren F1!
We're delighted to be able to support Ian with his heli bearings & even more delighted to hear from him that he's had many hours use from them so far - long may it continue :-)
