Ron Lund is retiring this year and closing or hopefully selling the business.

Paraphrased from an email from him today:

It's been 25 years today since Rick and I started the helicopter business. What a great way to make a living! I hope to do some travelling next year and see some old friends. I would also like to make more You Tube videos. Now I don't have time, but I will in the future.

I appreciate your support over the years.

Thank you so much,
Ron

And you all called ME paranoid...

very Sad, I just got an order from him 2 days ago...and was planning on more for the spring...

He had a great run, got my first real Heli from him, my first gasser, my first 600...
no one else ever gave me better service...

Thanks Ron for all the fun you made it possible for me to have on good weather weekends.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

I hope he can come back to IRCHA and other events worth the ride and just hang out as a friend without having to worry about selling stuff.

Here is wishing you all the best in your retirement Ron. IMHO, you always ran the best RC shop for the heli community!

Always treated his customers and staff as he would wish to be treated.

Congrats Ron!

Ron's not only provided great service, he contributed to many fun fly's and world championships. Ron also solved and explained many technical problems that RC helis had during the last 25 years of development in getting to where they are today.

Does anyone else think that there ought to be at least one fun fly and or maybe some national level event name after him? Ron attended more events than anyone else I know and certainly sponsored more of them.

Ron set the standard for on-line hobby shops. Honest as the day is long and truly loves the hobby. Sad to see Ron's go away, but if anyone deserves a break after all these years, it's him.

Great job, Ron. Congrats on the retirement.

Great guy, will miss his site. Hope you enjoy retirement Ron.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
