Day 1 finished...
95% was 3D but I got bored after the first 20 tick tocs.. Mikado stand was busy but nothing new that was WOW a lot of hex copters that were able to do a loop.. A couple of crashes. A new model from Vario that was unfinished and hidden under a table...

A few Roban models on scale heli.. but really there was nothing if you liked scale apart from a 1.25 size lama that was huge.. and 1/4 size double rotor blade machine. .

All The Best

Hi Matt,

Unfortunately, Rotor Live has lost it's way as far as the scale modeller goes.
That's why I didn't bother this year - 3D does nothing for me at all.

The Vario Apache was supposed to be almost ready for selling - looks like it's no closer from when I last saw it in September ?

Say Hi to Frank at Vario for me if you see him tomorrow ?

Yeah agree Modtron. . Although my two lads enjoyed it... We are flying back tomorrow morning as no point sticking around.. was very cold sitting in the stands was 6c lol. and when I have just worked out total cost for 2 days including car and flights and meals it was £750.00 for 3 of us it was an expensive weekend to see stick bashing although my lads enjoyed the crashes as did the crowd.. ... but next year I will just save for Jet POWER... or the Toy festival in Feb time..???? Did u find any replacement event for rotor live?

One thing that did stick out was how unstable some of these multi bladed rigid heads are in a wind or breeze,apart from the ultimate heli that Bernard Ponting Flew the others were Pitching Up ballooning In The Wind quite noticeably and seemed a real handful and on the the tail authority it gave the impression of being right on their limits. Not smooth at all.. I guess flying in a stadium with wind rolling off the grandstands creating turbulence is a challenge...
