You werent kidding about the heat today. My face is still drawn tight from being sun burnt. Saw quite a few crashes during the noon show. It would be nice to be able to laugh about a crash. When I crash I just about say every curse word in the book and take a month to get back up and flying.

Amazing night flying/show. For those that couldn't make it this year, watch the videos once they're up you won't be disappointed.

Thanks to everyone who helped put this thing together. Awesome time and awesome flying all around.

IRCHA was really good! I can tell you myself and several pilots I talked to on the line were really dissapointed in the Mikado "V-Bar-Hour".. We thought it was going to be a real raffle on which when you paid your dues and entry fee that you had a shot at getting a Mini-Vbar 5.0.. Instead we were treated to a "Yo yo yo.. get in on the deck and make them gophers pay their rent bro.. Cause if you don't get it down low.. on the deck yo yo.. " Then the crowd won't yell at you.. and it's all about getting it "on the deck".. That was getting really old.. Alot of of hung until the end to see if our number was called between the "you better holla yo if you want to see these VBars".. But instead of having actually numbers called out to give every modeler their fair chance, to the "yo yo get it on the deck dog" the MC just threw them out like it was a Metallica guitar pick so people stomped and grabbed and pushed til they got a piece of electronics that is probably highly sensitve to "fighting over in a mosh pit".. I could picture Don Chapman (the founder of IRCHA)rolling over in his grave knowing that this is what heli flying has been reduced too.. In other words "we can't see the Mikado pilot destroy his machine unless you "holla" and make him go lower into the deck so we can throw $500 electronic boxes in to the audience so you can kill each other to get one!".. Other than this IRCHA was 1st class!!

They have to stop doing this because it isn't fair. I can't remember what year it was when they put a prize in the middle of the field and the fastest runner gets the gold. How about those people who are not very athletic or can't run at all? Why can't they just do the old fashion raffle, where it would be fair for everybody.


If you're not crashing your not pushing hard enough!

Dean, as im reading your post, you are implyimg that they didnt call out ANY numbers. I was there front row both days, and I can only recall a couple of times that numbers werent called. I thought it was awesome that Mikado gave out 20....... 20 Vbars... Very nice

I didn't imply that.. I don't know how many number were called and how many were not.. My point is ALL 20 VBars should have been donated like the instructions in the Scorpion bag said.. You show up, and if they call a number if it matches the one on your box, you win.. not you have to be there within 30 seconds of when the "DJ Smackdown" or whatever his name was got tired of calling numbers.. What's really amusing as I'm assuming a Vbar 5.0 is a sensitive electronic device.. So that means if you got one of the ones where you had to dog pile on and fight and scrap for (never seen anything like this at any fun-fly ever) most likely you would have to send it back right off the back to have it looked at or repaired.. They were just in plastic bags..

Sensitive to static discharge maybe but not to a beating...it better not be or flybarless wouldn't be too popular. Usually the motion sensor can take up to 3000 g's

So...if you had to knock someones block out to get a V Bar then that's how it needed to be done. If that not in your book or morals then whip out your card, and buy one from RH...

Don't be bitter...Ive been to IRCHA 3 years in a row and NEVER got anything at all...except for the awesome experience of being there and flying there. If you went there for a V Bar or any little trinket then you went there for the wrong reason...should have stayed home and just bought one, it would have been cheaper.

So where are the pictures of all the ladies

I was there for the Mikado demos both days. As I recall on Saturday he only threw the one into the crowd after calling something like 5 numbers and no one showed up. I wish they would have called numbers instead but I'm not going to complain. Ralf even added more Vbars to the Saturday night drawing.

I was there since Thursday and did several volunteer shifts. I didn't win anything either but didn't really care. Getting to hang out with Mr. Mel and OICU812 was well worth the trip for me.

Not complaining about not winning anything..I won some blades and such.. and winning something or not was not the point of the post.. it was when we read in our pack that vbars were being given away we didn't realize it was going to be handled like the filming of a Busta Rhymes video.. it wasn't Mikados fault..it was the "Yo yo if i don't see it on the deck, Flo and you want vbar you better Holla!" attitude of the "mc" that turned people off.. and the constant encouragement to crash just because as he put it "Mikado has more parts" .. that was ridiculous..

was it a flying event or a hip hop pretend gangsta event?

mc may be a break dancer.

as long as no one played maniac from flashdancer and got water thrown on them after a flight, it should be all good.
