I just had a somewhat acrimonious phone call from a fellow who only identified himself as Jeff at Ace Hobby Distributor demanding I cease and desist showing the video of Marcus flying the Tiger 50 because, "He's mine, I have him tied up, and it looks bad for you now that he's flying my Thunder Tiger Raptors so I suggest you stop showing him flying the Tiger 50."
I, as politely as I could, told him today was the 13th of Otober and that while it was nice for him to have Marcus going forward I didn't think he couldn't edit the past . . . and that video of Marcus flying the heck out of a Tiger 50 would stay. He didn't seem happy as the conversation ended. Could it be that next Jeff will want all references to Marcus ever being one of Miniature Aircraft's sponsored pilot to go away like it never happened also?
Nonetheless, I wish to publicly say thank you to Marcus for flying the Tiger 50 so beautifully. I believe Marcus to be one of the very nicest people I've ever met and I wish him the best of success in his future endeavors whilst he belongs to Jeff. I think it's unfortunate that Jeff doesn't have the class of Tim who never told Marcus he couldn't fly our little beater helicopter. I hope I never get so full of myself.
