That looks like a lot of fun.
Fun also to see the prop's from the chopper be almost in sync with the framerate.

wow, I guess you will tell us that you are in full control of it, but I wouldn't like to be a passenger with you as pilot

I cannot tell what's going on with that copter. It looks like it's struggling to stay up?

Yeah, I hope that helicopter comes equipped with barf bags!

When you go to a club like that with a non-FPV craft, there's really nothing to do but fly around in tight circles.  So I imagine you get very good at stunt flying for lack of anything else to do.  But there usually aren't even any obstacles to hit, so it's just limited to flips and loops and stuff.

Reminds me of having a train set as a kid:  How long can you sit there and watch it go around a little oval endlessly?  So after a while, you start to create derailments and fiery crashes just for entertainment.  I had to get out my little green army men just to have some bodies strewn on the tracks after a wreck.

Flying clubs sure ain't for me.  I fail to see the point.  The ones with obstacles for racers, well that I can sorta see being entertaining.

It's called 3D flying. He's doing tic-tocs and piros. It takes a lot of skills (and gut) to fly like this.

@ JimmyC nice flying! Just an idea, make the Mavic fly fast around in an imaginary point of interest with the appropriate radius but as low as possible then dance your T700N in the middle. Bet it will look awesome.

Even from that far view I can see he had full precision control of the RC heli. Obviously you haven't flown a single rotor before? It's nothing like multi rotors and considered as ok if you could even hover one. Put that Mavic of yours in sports mode then try flying backwards in perfect figure 8s lol...

Well in short: I had full control. Always smokey. Just as boring as playing with a train set. Thanks Nazar78. My son just got his mavic so he wanted to film above me.
