Worst edit ever (a tween with a 1s attention span?), but at least a tiny bit of drone footage

Everyone complaining about the non professional camera work should realise that the beauty of the event and what made it so good is that it has such little infrastructure that it can be held in super strong winds. The minute you have a behemoth event like King of the Air you get commercial pressure to run the roundd and as a result you get the ridiculous situation were heats can be held in mid 20 knots which no one wants to see.

Yeah, quite interesting why they did not go out on the sls.
Maybe it is just due to what they have in the bag? Not usual they need to go smaller than 9.
:roll:
Maybe...but if so why put in the bag the normal Dice instead of the SLS?
I think Aaron/Lasse had 9m sls as well so he could any of both kites.

Why did they not count the 9.03 final jump of L Walker?
I don't understand how the final 4th variety score is counted

Fantastic show, incredible...!
