Gary Smith has been coaching NMP PCH HayaBusa for several years at the same time and is on his way to help defend the Belgian 4-way gold medals later this year. HayaBusa will try to win the FAI World Meet for the 3rd consecutive time.
The NSL News had also posted an update from France after the first Coupe de France competition in May, which included the meet videos of the French national team in 4-way Open, Aerodyne Reaflfly.
Arizona Airspeed competed a month later at the Paraclete XP Summer Classic 2018, and the story on 18 June 2018 featured the team's ten competition rounds at Skydive Paraclete in Raeford. Airspeed's team captain Niklas Hemlin followed up on 22 June 2018 with a very interesting online video debriefing of the meet performance.
He was ready to discuss the recent performances of his team's two major challengers live on NSL-TV.
Gary Smith said that there is nothing to hide these days any longer, as the techniques and different styles are well known.
The top teams usually attend several meets together before going to a world championship or other major events, and they observe each other on a regular basis, as teams do in all other sports.
He said that teams have to find their own ways how to get to the team-specific top level, and just copying other techniques is not always helpful.

Gary Smith compares the Airspeed and French techniques with his own and explains the differences. NMP PCH HayaBusa copied the meet jumps during recent training camps, as all teams practice the sequences that are posted at other meets. Gary Smith yet did not disclose the HayaBusa scoring numbers for the same sequences.
He said that the 4-way world champions will follow up with their own next outdoor competition at Belgium's national championships in September, right after the USPA Nationals. It is the only outdoor competition for HayaBusa this year before the world meet...
