Thanks

Just a note of thanks for the weekend I had a great time and made some new friends from Mexico and Columbia. Also thanks to Inkspot and L from Readyheli for getting my Logo 500 v-bar tuned and flying very well even with me at the sticks.

I had a great time. Thanks to everyone that put on the event, and thanks to "williecrash" for the food, drinks, and a place to stay. Camping out was great, I also had my first taste of night flying. The top pilots were great to watch, tons of great flying.

What a blast!!

I couldn't believe the amount of give-aways and all of the great prizes that were there.

Made some new friends.

Night flying was awesome!! The blade stops were even cooler at night.

Thanks to everyone involved for putting together a great event and a special thanks to Bobby and Charley. I hope to get the new Outrage flying soon.

Hope Timbo found a soldering iron somewhere ;-)

Even with all the traveling issues I had (a living nightmare, that has yet to end as i sit typing this in the airport) Theres no way I'd miss this event next year. Bert, Mike, and all the rest of the guys really put on a stellar event, one to remember, and one to plan for next year, thats for sure. Even in the wind, that never really quit, I saw some of the best flying I've seen yet., everyone really kicked it up a notch at this event. Along with that was a huge raffle, that gave the feeling of IRCHA.

Too bad the night flying didn't last too long. In the midst of unpacking my helis and assembling them at the event. I accidentally pinched a light strip between the skids and the bottom of the frame, not realizing this, I turned on the lights, it went to a dead short and smoked all my wiring. So i'll be sure and make up for it next time around.

It was great hanging out with some friends, and meeting some new ones. Flying Inkspots flybarless E-700 was great...well maybe not the first time, haha...lets just say theres a new move out there called the Tim, I wouldnt recommend it to anyone, lol. Second time around was great, that things got a lot of potential, just need to get used to having heading hold on the cyclic.

Sorry for the long post, I've got another 7 hours to wait in the airport before going home, i'm looking to burn time anyway I can.

Thanks!

Thanks to Bert, Carey, and all the guys that made this event special. It was fun to actually be able to put in several FAI style flights in addition to watching some unbelievable 3D. I had a great time and am planning on attending next year.

Also, I don't know if there has been an event as well covered as this one!

I have seen some of the pictures and videos that were taken from Friday to Sunday and man my eyes are tired!

The High-Res stuff is amazing so thanks to all the roving camera guys who gave up their flying to keep us covered.

I have all but lost my voice today and have been drinking energy drinks like crazy just to get through Monday.

Thanks again to everyone who came out YOU are the ones that made this event great!

Have Rotors, Will Fly!

Too bad I didnt have the program with me at the airport, with all the time I had I'd be an expert by now.
Great seeing you again 3dx, cant wait for the next one.
