Best event hands down! I was fortunate to get "closest to the pin" for one auto with my 600SX but of course Raja won it all....again! I have to step up my game! My good friend RyanW came in second though He had to do an "auto off" against another great pilot and got it by 1.5 inches.....sweet!!!
I gotta say, hanging with the Henseleit Speed Team was a blast!!! Those guys know how to have fun and I got to see almost everyone I wanted to see...except Volcano He said look for his Shepard but I swear I saw every other dog BUT a Shepard Well maybe next year
Santiago put on a great Speed Cup event, Ray Stacy put on a great Autorotation Contest again but unfortunately he says this may be his last one.......I hate to see that and I sure hope the BEGGING AND PLEADING works I know he has a lot going on in the fall but I sure hope he can make it again.
Frank Boss, Ryan Witchey (hope I spelled that right), Bryan, Rich, and the entire Readyheli booth, Ace Dude, Jan Henseleit, Oliver Jellen, Frederich, MrMel, Fredrick R, The CEO of Kontronik (sorry I didn't get her name) and maybe some I forgot to mention....thanks a bunch for making it a memorable one!!!!

Thank you so much for all your help on the Speed Cup.

Next year we will keep Friedrich caged in a corner, until his turn to fly comes up. I found myself running away from the German Doctor more than once, LOL.

We all had a blast

I'm going to practice a bit more and see if I can give him a run for that plaque next time

Had a great time for my first IRCHA! Can't wait to go back again.

Yep, I remember. Next year we'll have to talk a bit more. Ryan and I were both a bit nervous on the fly-off I think. Cool he got the Goblin 500, I can't wait to try out the CGY-750.

I wonder who will pick up the judging and coordination of this event since Ray is likely retiring from this responsibility. Really appreciate his effort and time it takes to put that together.

I replaced the main gear and it seems to be working fine, the other one had about 15 flights and I had only applied wd40 once when I maiden the heli so maybe that was what caused the problem. Next time you come to Chicago either bring a heli with you or you can fly mine, but let's get together and do some flying, maybe this time volcano will show up too.

Always great to see you Ron!

Great "auto-off" jschenck (It is John, correct?)

We did that for third place, not first as Ray suggested. Raja beat us and Ron got closest to the pen... literally a pen

It was good fun and I will put that Goblin to good use!
