That's right spectrum was not made to impound, was just told not to HOG stations & everybody was very good, followed the rules, so they just impounded 72's like usual!!
Pepole were buying Spectrum Plung-in for their Tx's just to have the freedom!!
It was Awesome!!!

and one more thing "DON'T BE AFRAID!"

I wonder if this has anything to do with AMA pushing Spectrum or the Spectrum companies using IRCHA as a ploy to get everyone to convert?

I don't know but it was freakin' AWESOME! I flew just about wherever/whenever I wanted. Even went behind the campers and had a nice hovering area there. Gotta love 2.4 gig!

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

I think it is awesome that they did that. Goes to show that this can work at huge events and have absolutely no problems. I hope this will be adapted at all events in the future.

The system worked perfect. This IRCHA was the largest RC event of any kind in the world! No 2.4 impound. Way fewer lockouts than ever. The 2.4 system not only works, it also helps the 72mhz work better. Less chance of conflict.

This is cool.

Out of roughly 750 pilots that attended IRCHA there was only 150 72mhz radios that required impounding.
Where did you get these numbers from?

While I agree that having the Spektrum module was awesome (flew more this year than ever!) - it was not perfect. I did have a problem where the controls got mushy, somewhat intermittent, and resulted in a crash due to loss of control. It only happened once, at about 3 o'clock Saturday when I suspect a great many Spektrums were in use. All in all though, I love the Spektrum stuff!

are you the guy who was tented next to station 2 by chance?
i also had one spectrum mushy response wack down. went full collective but the ship never got it.

spectrum boys said that i needed to look at he rx module before i flew to be sure it had locked on, could have started to receive but never locked into a channel until 2 minutes into flight due to the amount of people on the 2.4 frequency.
told me to wait 2 minutes or make sure all leds were locked in.
otherwise a second or 2 of slow response might occur while flying which could result in a crash(& it did)

but all in all i flew tons and still had a good time.

only you have the power to make no difference!

I convinced the three guys I came with that they NEEDED Spektrum. Never waited to fly, just grabbed a cart and zoomed off to a station.

Great to meet a bunch of you.

I thought that myself. However, this was the second flight on a 1850 mAh li-po receiver pack. Upon charging, I had only used 300 mAh from the pack.
