Disapointed I could not fly at IRCHA
This year i took my predator gasser to IRCHA to fly. I had bent a blade spindle in flight while flying the week before. I thought no problem i will get one at IRCHA. Well no one there carries their parts. Century told me they don't bring parts with them and I could not find a vendor that sold Century parts. so I didn't register to fly. One place where i thought i could find a part, i couldn't, its a shame.

One thing I learned in life, never rely on anyone else. Either I go to a fun fly with a working helicopter and some spare parts or I just don't go unless I just want to hang out.Still buyin' and flyin' then crashing and cryin'

Ron Lund was there but didn't bring his rolling hobby shop. Just wish Century had a better supply of parts.

The biggest problem with Century products is the lack of parts availability. Great products completely let down by the distribution and manufacturing behind them.Nick Crego

Bummer. Who would go to the world's largest heli event, knowing that people crash helis, and not bring parts.

Seems to go with the rest of the parts problems with Century. Enough to keep me away from them.

Indeed a bummer...that was risky considering the lack of parts from them lately.

This was my first IRCHA. It was unbelievable. But I was surprised at the lack of replacement parts. 780 pilots flying, no one with with a tent with a boatload of spares?

I guess, with the number of different models and sizes, you can't have the spare for everything. But it didn't really seem that anyone was trying.

There were at least 4 hobby shops there, Min Air and Bergen both had parts for sale to support their brands, Align had free crash kits for their brand of the 450 sized helis, I wouldn't say there wasn't boatload of parts available.

One problem I saw was that cetain parts did sell out fast....But for the most part, there was good parts support between all the vendors.

I'm with Chris on this one. Do not relay on someone else for your parts. Have spares available whenever possible. Vendors at Fun FLy meets "usually" have the parts, but not all the time.

Sorry to hear you couldn't fly. At least you got to go to one (unlike some of us!!!)
