Is this Christophe Paysant-Le Roux 2008?
I watched him fly in the 2002 TOC and he was great. Not to be mean but he seems to be a little out of shape. So i am thinking this is not him.

It was him....
Christophe is more of a precision pilot vs a 3D pilot. I agree, Ive seen better.
The choice of music was good though...John Williams, and Con te Partiro.

He acuually told me once at the TOC that he hates Freestyle. He is a pure presision pilot. If you think he is weak at 3D, you have never seen him fly. This plane in the vid is one of the giant Edge540s that he is promoting and in my opinion is a big mutt. He is a hero of mine but I will say that some of the So-cal pilots we get at Fresno could puff that flight holding a lawn chair in one hand. Very weird to see a european pilot with those loud ass mufflers. Probabally the only way to deliver enough power to that beast.

Just my opinion.

Ya i am not trying to put him down at all. I think his freestyle in the 2002 TOC rocked so when i saw this vid i said to my self is this really him. i could never become the pilot he is that is for sure. But i could only try.

It looks like he was fighting some healthy wind there... maybe that's what threw him off...

Ron should be banned because his hair wasn't perfect one day and he wears cut-off pajama bottoms all the time.
