Cajun Helifest, USA, 2014

2014 got off to a great start with the first Len Mount trophy competition in the US.  This was the main event of the annual Cajun Helifest held at the end of March, and organised by Eric Babineaux who runs Starwood Scale models.  Over 80 pilots attended the 2 day event, with 25 models being entered into the two scale categories - up to 600 size machines and those over 600. 

The quality of modelling was high with some good scale flying.  Winner of the up to 600 class was Andrew (sorry Andrew - I don't have your surname).  This was his first competition and he's only been flying just over a year.  Winner of the over 600 class was veteran Stan Kopreski with his magnificent large scale Bell 47.
