2008 Helicopter Champion
Held in Muncie, Indiana, on June 13-15, the 2008 XFC (Extreme Flight
Championships) proved once again why only the world’s best pilots are
invited to compete.
Brutal maneuvers, sometimes just inches off the ground, put both pilot
and aircraft to the test. Flying “dances”, choreographed to music, demand
near-impossible precision — and judges critique every movement.
Eight countries were represented at this year’s event. The top three pilots
in both airplane and helicopter divisions shared more than undeniable
skill: All had trusted their models — and their reputations — to Futaba
FASST radio equipment.
Congratulations to the fliers listed here, and to everyone who made the
2008 XFC another great success!
