I don’t know Jay, it was kind of entertaining with these guys busting balls before the event and then nothing.

I am surprised myself.
Usually scale attendees post plenty of pics for those of us unable to attend

Awesome! Nice job to all. Thanks for the update Mark!
Congrats to Rene, the new ama scale nats champion!
I spoke to Darrell a couple of times briefly and he said there were several weather delays so I imagine that hampered progress reports.

My first NATS was AWESOME!! Congrats to all the winners. Thanks a TON to the judges and to Mark, all of which gave up lots of their valuable time for us competitors.

I enjoyed every minute of my time at the NATS. Super proud to have flown and competed against the best. The battle between Mike and myself in Sport Scale was epic. He flew his scale butt off and forced me to fly harder than I thought I could and in the end he earned a well deserved victory!

Already looking forward to next year!

Gang,

What a BARN BURNER! The weather attempted to piss us off BUT.. all it did was gave us more time to talk about our machines and flying.

Congrats to all that ENTERED and to the winners. If you have never flown the NATS you have to give it a go. The support from the pilots is great!.

Thank you Mark Allen for Taking on the task as whipping post. We truly jest and its so fun to hang out and talk helis with you. Thank you for you work on the event.

Judges.. silent kindness and hard workers.. THANK YOU!

Thank you Darrell "the heli whisperer" for helping. Just the printer its self is worth a bunch!
Thanks for your kind guidance and friendship.

Congrats to MOWERMAN Rene.. you built a great ship. Its important to note.. when you come to the nats.. and have your ship ready. Like Rene.. you are setting your self up for a great contest. I just did not have my stuff together. Rene.. WELL DONE.. you had it all together!

Steve "Trouble Maker" Smith. Dude.. I have not had the hot fire defeat crammed down the back of my neck like that in MANY YEARS of competing and you know that goes back years for me.. THANK YOU! I had to dig deep and I fricking LOVED IT! Thank you for your kindless and calling. Guys. the cat is the REAL DEAL!
