Really too bad I missed this one. I had footage, but forgot the deadline was last week already.
I would not have competed with the kings, but I can also save this as a backup for next round.
Good luck to everyone.

That explains my flying. Got a bit distracted.

I would be interested in an HD version of that one for sure.

If you're interested, why not create a new topic here in the Virtual Freestyle forum where people can discuss methods of rating the competition.
I'm sure everyone has their own methods so it will be nice to pick up some hints and tips, whether you're a novice or expert.
Going back to your original comment - the solution is simple, if you can't make out what's going on then it don't get any points for it. Can't be any farer than that can you?
