In the scale sector I hope Roban improves and adds something like Jetranger, EC145,EC135 with a decent fenestron, Longranger.

I hope it adds them to its growing fleet, it is great to see a competitor to Vario and one that is much better in quality.

All The Best

So back to Eengineer's drone smack prediction..

At the 45 second mark during the "pitch pumps", is he using throttle to reverse the motors, or is he actually flipping it for the descent and flipping again to stop?

All I know is that it's someone called "Warthox"....
and his quad is carbon fiber and extremely light.

But, I couldn't find the answer to your question....

I predict we will lose some kit manufactures or see a severe reduction in models.

KDS and Thunder Tiger come to mind.

I also predict more upgrade manufactures introducing there own model..Like what Lynx has done with the OXY 3.

I also predict 500 class and larger will fade a bit. Kits are getting to pricey and the 325-380 blade slinger's fly well enough for most.
Most flyers I know have really shifted how they see the hobby. The cost to fun ratio of large high dollar heli's just isn't there. Also the gap in performance between a small to larger models has really closed up.
Most are spreading out in the type of aircraft they fly and having $2000 invested in one machine isn't as appealing.

My 2015 Predictions
2015 will see me fly more gassers then anything else.
I will spend more money this year than in 2014.
I am going to take more money with me to IRCHA this year then last year and not spend it all the first day again.
At least one manufacture will make something that I don't need but will spend a lot of money on anyway.
I will crash my favorite helicopter when showing someone how good it flies.
And The last prediction, I'm going to have as much fun as an 11 year old boy with a new gokart and a 5 gallon can of gas.

Jimmy, If it looks like a heli I like it.

I plan on building up my heli fleet a bit more this year and getting a little deeper and more involved in the hobby!. I kind of slacked a little last year. Looking forward to 2015. This is more of a New Years resulution than a prediction though!.

I predicted I would crash. I didn't think it'd happen within a week though. Lol.
