I'm sure I'll know the name but can't recall right now. I want to enter their contest but can't recall who is considered the "father of RC helicopters". A Huey Cobra was what he built.
Any ideas? History was never my strong suit back in school and that was over 30 years ago

FWIW, I did google "father of RC helicopters" and went through three pages of the links but didn't find it. The only name I could think of was Mike Mas but I knew he wasn't the right guy. Considered Jim Broberg but his was the whirlybird or something like that. Us old guys tend to forget stuff from 30+ years ago, even when we were there at historic events in RC.

It's there. You just have to put in the right combination of search terms. I think I still had to go through two or three pages to find it.
