Hi mhills51

Ok,

but the average pilot tends to attend IRCHA more than ever. They are the ones voicing that the ego inflating atmosphere of IRCHA is not what they are after. The consumer drives the economics for the Heli brands. We are seeing a paradigm shift where customers demand to be recognized and valued more than desire to idolize and glamorize rock star pilots. Sorry, but those days are long gone, especially in our recent economy.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

I am honestly not going to write my heart out because many will disagree with me, but the stations left and right of center are for open flying. However, what really upsets me is people throwing the name "Goblin" out there. True, there were some Goblins, but there were other brands as well as this was a video for Pulse battery and not for SAB. There were in fact I think a couple of Aligns in that mix also!!!!

Power hours run all day! I remember that the person in charge of Pulse asked IRCHA for permission to do this and it was granted, as I stated it took probably 5 to 7 minutes max and it wasn't a "Goblin" thing.

In any case, hope you guys indeed enjoyed IRCHA, just don't ever make the hobby job because it will take all the fun out of it, specially when you read stuff in forums like these.

Totally Agree Bert

It's all fun till the hobby becomes a job 😮. I hope our feedback helped a little and very true, simply impossible to know all that is going on (and behind the scenes at IRCHA).

IRCHA was wonderful! Beautiful weather and flying, wonderful people and plenty to see. Already planning for next yr.

Later

Probably focused on Goblin over the rest that may have been there because they stick out like a sore thumb. Another reason for attention to Goblin is many see you as the face of Goblin, you were there so it was looked at as a Goblin event, maybe.
Possibly another location could have been used or maybe Pulse needs to have their own power hour.

BTW, Sticking out like a sore thumb is not intended as an insult towards Goblins.

Thank you for taking the time to tell everyone your perspective of IRCHA 2014 Tyler, it has been fun to read about the event from you and everyone else.

I wonder if anyone can confirm if Align is going to attend Ircha this year? If so, I hope they have new reps that at least man the tent and support the public!

Some of us are already here at the AMA site and have been told that Align will not be at IRCHA this year, as well as many other name brands and vendors.

Uh oh! Now Align too? A few days ago TT posted they will not be there.

Note to self, bring more t-shirts. Not too many will be thrown out during Power Hours!

We always come to fly and hang out with friends. Vendors are valuable, and manufacturers are just a bonus.
