Man you guys are twisting everything I say in the most negative way. I am NO Alan Szabo Jr. Not even close. I never said I was. But I've been in this hobby more than 20 years. There is something to be said for experience. I am simply trying to explain to some of the doubters flaming me (who may have been in this hobby for only a short while) that I know what I'm doing. And, I'm just pointing out that I am the only instructor of the Cleveland RC Club, that I put on a show almost every weekend, and have taught lots of people how to fly helicopters. Those are facts. If a manufacturer wants to keep a front man like me happy so I recommend their stuff, great! If they don't, that's fine too. If there stuff is good, I will still recommend it although I may not show it off (and that has less pull, period. If you don't believe me, look how much famous people get to endorse products). I will probably fly Hirobo again in the future (when I can pay the bills again) regardless of what JEff decides because I think they make a great 50 size helicopter. If he can help me, I'll be back up with the Sceadu sooner. If he can't, fine. It just means I won't be showing what his heli can do anytime soon. It is not a threat to JEff. It is just a fact.
Hm...it seemed for me that you simply want to use your status for pressuring and getting everything for free...why not to become a sponsored pilot then, if could fly that good. But something is telling me that manufacturers wouldn't ever do that by simply reading this thread. Guys who fly well never tell everyone how good they are, they simply fly and show it!,
Now don't try to read this with the intention of finding the worst way to interpret my message and flame me with it.
