Thanks to everyone involved for putting on the show. I am looking forward to next years Mini Heli Blowout and then the full deal in December again.

Hello everyone!

Earlier someone made a post as to James Cistola (President of TORCHS) being rude at our event.

While James and I have had our personal differences prior to the event, I will say that the event ran very smoothly.

Running an event, or heck even talking on the mic can be pretty stressful and perhaps you may have gotten him at the wrong time and place and potentially there were 281 people each with possibly their own issue.

Let's not let any of the drama, attitudes, egos or anything else for that matter over shadow what was not only the biggest event in the world but also the best.

Bert, James and Carey did a great job as coordinators but lets not forget all of the TORCHS members that handled the flight line, parking, setup, garbage, registration and a host of other behind the scenes things that most of us don't even think about.

I hope to see everyone again very soon and of course next year at the 2012 Orlando Heli Blowout!

Have Rotors, Will Fly!

That save that Matt did during the noon demo showed us the importance of being ready every second
Please tell those of us Mike what happened and what he did.

I think you are pointing out the very end. Not sure what happened though. Did he just lose it for a moment or did something break? Can you give a more narrative?

Now that is impressive. It was so smooth the transition from tail failure to landing was so good that it was tough to tell in the video.

Absolutely one of the best events by far. So many good people to meet and talk to, I will be there next year for sure. Congrats Bert for joining outrage and im sure you will ha e a good time with us.
Noon time demo, the crashes.. Amazing show put on, in one of the pics you se me running from matt's heli as it flipped rolled and fell towards the crowd, but matt saved it and landed perfect with hitting anyone. Put it right back beside him for a nice landing. That alone was worth going.
Will be there next year for sure, great job Bert and everyone involved.

TORCHS president is an A$$
Dude, the voice of many far outweigh your only complaint! Maybe you got up on the wrong side of bed or your old lady cut you off or something, but if you were that unhappy then perhaps the OHB is not for you.

Bert, James, Carey and the rest of the club members, the vendors, etc. etc. etc. a BIG THANK YOU!

I was able to get in a total of 2 flights the entire weekend due to working the event. I still had a blast meeting with many of you, watching the noon demos, the night flying and the list goes on and on.

I have already put in my request for time off next year

The OHB has got to be the one "can't miss" event each year.

If it ain't broke, go fly some more!

Guys... James already addressed the issue and honestly bringing it up again is just giving him more attention than it deserves.

Matt's Save

Well Guy's in regards to the Amazing Flights of all the Pro Pilots as well as Non Pro, Everyone did an Outstanding job in Putting on the Best Show ever for The Crowd. Matt Touched the Ground with the Tail causing the Rear Gear to go. He and The Other Pilots, Bert,Bobby,Curtis,Kyle S all had little issues but only Because they wanted to give everyone a Show they would remember!! These guys don't just come to fly They Come To Perform and Push themselves as well as the Machnes. No different from any other Sport. These Guys are crowd Pleasers And Driven even Harder By the Crowds responce. The Fact They all Recovered the way they did without Harm to Anyone is simply Uncomprehensible! What Talent they all have! I only wish my Brain Processed that quickly! Great Job,Great Event,Great Food,And Plenty of Great People!! Kudos to Them! I know it may seem they are not Human based on there skills and ability this just proves they are.LOL
