I’ve been around long enough to see the hobby come and go a couple times. I remember dedicated Heli shops within driving distance in the mid 80s-90s then a bust. Then a Heli boom around the time little electric Helis became doable. It’s a always a downer when your hobby feels like it is dying, not to mention parts support drying up.

So long as people are still flying, helis will always be around boom bust cycles be damned. I’d discourage anyone from making it a generational thing though. What drove me to teach myself planks was the atmosphere at the local field. I just remember a bunch of grumpy folks that bitched about “kids” today. I still liked Rc, I just didn’t care to do it around a bunch of Debbie downers.

So as a group, if we want new blood in the hobby, I hope we a put a little effort into welcoming folks in. There will always noobs that have more money than sense, they’ll either learn patience or go away. Then there will always be some that stick it out and learn to fly. Taking pot shots at that person’s age group isn’t gonna help.

Lastly, this generational thing bothers me. It pervades all media and it’s getting old. The whole thing is a sham imo. If a generation is “deficient” in some manner, the generation that raised them should take a bow right?
