Not what it used to be
I was rather bummed out at the show. Seems like there were more exhibits/vendors in years past. The prices also seemed rather average. I used to get killer deals on engines and radio gear at the MAC shows in Pasadena. Prices seemed about internet average to high.
On the plus side, the folks at Dreamhobbies were very accomodating in answering questions and offering advice, so I bought a Trex setup from them. The Align guys put on some impressive (to a novice) flying and were also very helpful. One of their guys, (Eric Stolls?) also offered to help out with setup and flying. It is probably cheaper to have someone of his caliber check out a new heli built by a novice than experiment by crashing into the cat.
My dilemma is this, I just stopped drinking and now I have a box of little parts to assemble.

I was there and the prices were not that great. My LHS meets or beats most of the prices. But after watching Eric, Danny and Jason fly my wife had me get her a Blade CX (That she saw demo of) at the show to play with. There was some great flying going on and a few good crashs Jason stuffed one into the ground hard (just after crashing one before) sending parts into the crowd. Those guys have to much fun.

Eric you may need to help out my wife as well.

I did see quite a few of the vendors turning on radios in there booths. I don't think that was helping. They should have a few chanels that vendors must use in there booths. On the good side it did show how well the T-Rex can take a hit. In Jason's first crash the T-Rex did not look that bad and I checked out Eric's downed bird and it took the crash well. You would think that these light high powered copters would come out a lot worst than they do. {Landing is just a controlled crash. I'm still working on my controlled crashes. }

I too think the show was better when it was in Passadena. However it is what it is. I was there Saturday and spoke to Finless (Bob) at the Align booth and he helped me greatly with my first purchase of a T-Rex. Steve at Dream Hobbies was very helpful and he was very conscientious with making sure he was answering everyone's questions, and I had many. I saw those crashes during the Align demo, amazing to watch but it gave you that sick feeling in your gutt. That guy who crashed was obviously very talented and I figured it was either a radio issue or mechanical failure vs. brain fade. I wonder if the new 2.4 ghz Spectrum radio would be a better choice with all the regular radio traffic nearby.

On Sunday I opened the helicopter package and was surprised to see the metal case, what is that for? Seems like an expensive way to package the heli. Anyway after pulling out all the parts I was amazed that not one thing is assembled. Not that it's a problem, in fact I'd rather build it myself, but to the novice builder I'm sure it looks like the "Erector Set" from Hell.

My dad, son and I attended an honoree dinner after the show Saturday where the AMA was honoring Burt Rutan. What an amazing person. The slide show was entertaining and Burt is quite a speaker. He stated in his speech he is disappointed with the lack of true young craftsmen this country is turning out from the schools. He asked the audience that if you know any talented creative people to send them his way as he needs to hire a bunch of people to help buil their first civilian space craft. Now that would be very cool, problem is that it's in Mojave.
