Helio wins Valdez stole competition touring class

Still waiting for the video on you tube a helio won the Valdez stole comp.  closest competition was a 185 flown by Paul Claus     Don't think much about a 185 bit you won't find a better pilot to fly it than Paul which speaks volumes.  Not sure which helio spanked him. Perhaps someone can chime inn

I've often wondered why more Helios haven't entered the Valdez STOL competition.

The reason I never did, was because I made such poor landings on tarmac, that I figured I would probably ground loop with the whole world watching.

Sorry about the spelling and punctuation   Stol.  My phone like to auto correct

Here's a nice video of the competition.  Helio is at about 1:45.  Nice looking plane!
