b. Listen to my caller, intently. If he says Return to Target, just do it. Thanks Steve, that was a memorable first round of flying. You did a great job, thanks.
Twas my pleasure!

Quite frankly, I think it should become a compulsory maneuver. We'll call it the "Donsteve". The caller and pilot verbally argue for 1 minute while the pilot simply flies around.

Scale IRCHA Summary,

Gang, we had a fantastic time on SCALE HILL this year at IRCHA. I would like to personally thank VARIO for their support of the event. From the breakfast treats to DAYLY LUNCH to the pizza party.. thank you VARIO! We were treated like Kings from the gang at VARIO.

Also.. thank you to the IRCHA board for being proactive in our tent needs. Yes.. we have big helis and we just need the darn room. Thanks for that.

Thank you Darrell for again setting up, hosting and making the trophy’s for the IRCHA scale contest. We had a host of competitors and they all stated they had a good time.

I took my first shot at judging a Scale Heli Contest (I have done an airplane contest in the past). I missed flying in the contest but know my machine is not capable of winning so OK.. we contribute the best we can. I was also head judge and score keeper.. does that make me important.. no.. just the kicking post if something goes wrong.. good news.. it went dead smooth!
It was good to see old friends and yep.. added a few more to the pile of friends Scale Helis makes.

The weather.. well.. its about the best IRCHA weather I have been to. Friday got a bit bumpy with some wind and cooler temps but TOTALLY GOOD to go.. It rained about 10 min VERY early sat morning (like 2am) and that was about it. Man.. that could not have been better!

Reading in.. make plans to attend the 2018 show if you are on the fence. You will not be disappointed.
End
Grim

I too would like to thank all of the judges, competitors, and hosts. I did not compete this year. But was there with my helicopter more as an exhibition and shake down run. This was my third year attending, first flying. And let me encourage any and all this was the best and biggest I personally have seen to date. Even if you are not ready to compete this is a do not miss. It is a fantastic opportunity to have some of the best of the best to help answer questions or even just to see what they are all about.

Again thanks to everyone for making this my a great event

IRCHA 2017

One of the best yet that I have attended in my opinion. Everything was smoothly ran, yet in a very laid back, comfortable manner. Weather was about as good as you can ask for this time of year in Indiana.

It was so great to be around everyone again and to have met a few new faces.
Lots of great story telling, with lots of friendly ball busting thrown in for laughs. I thought the crowds visiting the scale tent were a little larger (busier) than in years past, which was nice. There were LOTS of amazing scale ships on display for everyone to see. As stated already, mega thanks to Vario for the food and hospitality! Scale contest was a an absolute blast - as always. Thanks so much to Darrell for coordinating that and to the judges who unselfishly gave up a tremendous amount of their IRCHA time for us competitors.

Thanks to everyone who helped me with the Wolf over the course of the weekend. Could not have had the success I had without you guys!

Is IRCHA 2018 here yet?!?!?!?!??!

It appears that IRCHA is still a great time with an excellent "cast of characters"!!!! Always a good time and I miss it..
Maybe next year, I'll surely try...
And, I am building a "shipable" heli...?
Congrats to everyone!! You are all winners just being there!
