SA BEER LIFT COMPETITION PRIZE WINNERS & VIDEOS

Greetings my fellow humans!

Its finally that time! Time to find out whether all that hard work and sweat you put into getting alcoholic beverages airborne has actually paid off. Our beer lift was tiny compared to the HK one, but I don't think that mattered, everyone did a great job and that's all that matters. The most important thing, regardless of what our parents tell us. The most important key to a happy, not neccessarily successful life, is none other than FUN! Its something we never lose and something we can have everyday almost for free!

All in all, we had alot of fun over the past months doing what we did! BUT WAIT! There's more... PRIZES!!!


A BIG shout out goes to the wonderful people and companies that sponsored the awesome prizes.

They are:

Points are awarded for more than just lifting!
A. 10 points per KG lifted.
B. 10 points for 5 second flight.
C. 0.5 points for every second in flight after the 5s qualifying time.

please please can we have a nother chance to do more bear lifting. I think if you look at the amount of views it is very popular and we need to do this every year or if you ask me, more than once a year. I missed my opportunity last year cause my drone, I list my maltyrotor (fk hoe spell jy dit) for 3 days and have build a new one since then. It is just so much fun watching the videos. Look I wont be doing much better than that lifting but will also ad some good vids .
