  • W.A Challenge Cup 2019

    This weekend was Round 2 (out of 4) of the WA Challenge Cup, hosted by MORBC on the recent IFMAR worlds track. Aaron would go into Round 2 with a 4 lap lead in the overall series, over Harry Simms (Mugen Maxima). Saturday was qualifying day and all the 'locals' were straight out on track going super fast after running lots of laps last weekend at the 1/10th Interclub. Aaron used his consistency, and the OS B21 TY2, to TQ round 1 of qualifying, but it wasn't going to be easy. In round 2, the track condition had changed and a few small errors meant Aaron was 3rd for the round, only a few seconds in it. Aaron went on to TQ Q3 and Q4 under lights with consecutive FTD's. In Q5 unfortunately a DNF due to a bad cell in the receiver pack. With TQ 3 out of 5, Aaron would start P1 in the second semi. Younger brother Ben, with some solid runs, qualified 9th, starting 5th in the same semi as his brother. Sunday came around...

    Thailand Heli Blowout 2019
    March 30th and 31st brought me to Thailand Heli Blowout 2019 at the Thung Srikan Flying Field in Bangkok, (THB) Asia's premier fun fly and Competition. This would be my first competition and demos out of Australia. We arrived Thursday afternoon to the airport where we were greeted by my Teammates father Narong Poonoi who drove us off to the hotel to assemble helis for practice starting Friday. The weather in Bangkok was quite a shock to the system with temperatures above 35°c and humidity in the high 60's. Friday I managed to get in 7 flights of practice even with the chaotic flight lines, mainly set manoeuvers as that's what I was flying on Saturday. I made some good progress with the help of my teammates. Inbetween flights I was assisting the team with mechanical issues throughout the day where I could. I left Friday feeling better...
