I realize I have been away.

Sorry to hear that WC passed away. Didn't know he was sick.

Argued with him many times, but still sad to hear that a Heli guy is gone.

Another old school guy left this year. Steve Campbell was one of the first Heli guys that I met. Lost him to cancer this year. He wrote his own Obituary and it made FB fame and our local newspaper.

RIP WC.

His flying/building progressed over the years to spite him.

Will miss his bling post.

CANCER SUCKS!

A few here will remember that Steve Campbell mentioned above used to write for the early issues of Model Helicopter Technique. Here is his obit from this past June: http://m.legacy.com/obituaries/thea...=0&preview=True

I'm sorry to learn of Steve Campbell's passing. I shared many PMs and emails with him when he was actively flying helis and writing for MHT. If I remember correctly I met him at IRCHA in '97 or '98.

His obit is a hoot!

Sorry, I mentioned another Heli friend recently passing.

No disrespect to the loss of WC.

Any loss of this crowd saddens me.

Met Steve once... he wasn't so ornery LOL
RIP brother

WC sometimes posted weird things to some but deep down inside he was a good guy who died way to young. RIP WC

Early on I put WC on my ignore list for a short time, but later on I really liked the guy for trying and even looked forward to his postings.

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

sad

sad to hear any rc enthusiast has cycled his last charge but these comments and expressions of empathy leave me with a slight smile. Our differences pale in comparison to the excitement we share about the hobby/addiction many of us suffer from. Don't call Dr Phil, but how does that make U all feel?

Never met either of these members if memory serves. However I read some of Steve's articles and laughed with and at some of WC's posts. Now I gotta go read the obit.

I get many chuckles from this forum. WC made me laugh a lot. And Campbell was his own character. Not as grumpy as the Obit says, but he wrote it and left it with his wife to fill in the dates.

Agreed... love of Helis can transcend almost all politics.

**Maybe not Socialism, but thats another topic.

WC ...you are getting posts on RR in the afterlife.
Bet he is smiling.

WC was always a good friend to me while he didn't get along with everyone people just didn't understand him he didn't mean disrespect it's just his style. One of a kind will be missed.....
