The Helper is Minoru Kobayashi who reached the 2nd position in the F3C WC in USA (2001) with a JR Superio (the model before the Sylphide). In that WC the winner was C. Youngblood. Now he produce some cool parts for Hely (the world famous VJ PRODUCT). Pls take a look here: http://kobayashi.heteml.jp/
Here is my old JR Superio in JR Galaxi body. I bought it, some years ago, from JR swiss importer. It is the 100% replica of Minoru's superio mechanic of 2001 (with also JR prototype parts of time).
After his final flight Ito opened his "A" E12 Sylphide, a little crowd around his hely, so everybody can check that his model is a "normal" E12. The difference is only in his hands and, of course, a personal set-up of hely.
