    The hobby of rich people: indeed?Emotions by loving helicopters

    I keep listening time by time: this hobby is for rich people. Well, we know how many of us aren't rich at all. There are many-many pilots with cheaper, older stuff, older models. Many of us can have one or two helicopters only - not even the best ones. And there are few others with 8-10-12 helicopters, most of them latest versions, but this is is not so typical. Which hobby is cheap? If you do it well, none of them.

    Helifest 2019and Weston Park Model Air Show - Sunday Photos

    Sunday, the last day of Helifest 2019 was the sunniest day, but it was really gusty. That's why many crashes happened. However this was the first and only day, when it was possible to take better photos than in the previous days - except in the tents, where everything got yellowish, so the Mexican style sepia effect is not intentional...

    Helifest 2019Photos from Saturday

    Saturday, second day of Helifest 2019 was a little bit better than Friday, although still wet. The scheduled program was suspended time by time because of the rain. Lights were terrible, honestly we didn't know how the pilots could see their helicopters sometimes.

    Helifest 2019Friday photos

    Friday, the first day of Helifest 2019 wasn't ideal for flying at all. The almost continuous torrential rain has flooded the ground turning everything into a marsh. Just the most determined pilots tried to fly. Therefore the people spent the time mostly in the tents. This album is a collection of photos taken in the afternoon.
