HeliFUN is getting close now, and was thinking it would be better to get the info out on the new raffle prizes and sponsors to you sooner than later.

Please don’t let this stop the cool discussions and joking around!!

It seems that when I handle a little event business (announcing sponsors)… it slows down (just a little) the best part of the thread… which is the discussions and joking between you guys. That stuff is FUN - and the core of HeliFUN - is having FUN!!!

There are going to be quite a few here in a row. These are some of the Sponsors that were finalized in the last few weeks. Here we go……

Welcome aboard Approach Engineering as a Sponsor!!
OK… bear with me… I have a story… but it is a good one.

Fate has a way surprising you!! So I called Starwood to talk to them about their sponsorship… and I thought I was talking to one of the guys there. It ends up that if the Wert's are out of the shop… they forward their phone to… get this… Dr. Tim Dawson at his shop. What a pleasant surprise!

If you have not heard the name… Dr. Tim writes the scale articles for RC Heli Mag… and has won more Scale Heli Contests than anyone. He is the expert of scale.

This was going to be a 5 min phone call - but it ended up being an hour. What a Cool Guy!! Sometimes in life you get the chance to talk to someone that just makes you feel good about life…truly befriends you… and makes you proud to be able to call them a friend. This was one of those calls.

We talked about so many things - my kids, his kids (he has 6), advise on raising girls ("don't look them in the eye when reprimanding them - with that pouty lip of theirs… you'll cave" ), him crashing his jet in the 1st Iraq war, the injuries of that, education of the kids today, building scale helis, and of course HeliFUN (and so much more).

He is one of the most down to earth, nicest, smartest, funniest, and forth right people I have ever had the pleasure to talk to… truly!! He wants who ever wins, to call him and introduce themselves… and he honestly really meant it… he wants to welcome them to the product, and to get to know them. Who ever wins this, is going to get great hands on help from the Master (actually anyone who has one of his kits can) - How Cool

His sponsorship is an AH-64A Apache Fuselage Kit for an electric heli.

Check out his very nicely done website to learn so much more. He has 3 other kits, and a very nice tail drive adaptor kit for all scale helis:

"Thanks Dr. Tim… it was my pleasure to talk with you!!"

"Welcome Aboard Modefos Heli !!"
It feels good to have Wes as a Sponsor!! He is a great guy to do business with!! Quick story… years ago I had seen a very cool one off custom canopy on his website that I just had to have. I emailed him and asked about it, and he emailed me back letting me know it had a very small paint chip in it.

We talked about him sending a digital photo of it, but the chip was so small that it didn't show up in the photo. He then… without knowing me even a little bit then... offered to ship it to me to inspect before I paid for it (he didn’t even have or ask for my credit card at that point ) - and if I didn't like it, he would pay to ship it back.

Now that is someone to do business with!! (I liked the canopy just fine and sent him a check. He even gave me a considerable discount on it.)

Wes is sponsoring HeliFUN with two (2) $200.00 Gift Certificates - that can be used for anything you want from his website!!

If you win one of the certificates, there is ton of stuff on his website to choose from when you go shopping:

Welcome back as a Sponsor HobbyTownUSA/ Easton, MD!!
These guys are our LHS… and they are great! They listen to us on our needs… and are very helpful to have or get our local pilots anything they are looking for. Last year they helped launch HeliFUN in a big way, by putting up a new Blade 400 as the Heli we had to raffle off. That heli and the faith in the event… actually helped to make this event even bigger this year.

They are sponsoring this year with a $50 Gift Card.

"Thanks Laura and Steve!!"
