Man life gets in the way and you take a year or 8-10 off from RC helicopters and you come back to see what's going on and wammo all your old buddies are gone. Most of the pros that where huge back then don't even seem to be talked about or around anymore. Models have evolved and everything about me & my equipment is outdated. LOL
only you have the power to make no difference!

Who cares about who isn't around anymore? What is obsolete about what you own? Did it suddenly stop being capable of flying? My basement is full of Thunder Tiger Raptors, JS Frenzys, Hirobo Evo, Audacity Pantera, JR SG Vibe 90, Compass Knight 3D. Every one of them nitro. Almost all are flybarred. They all still manage to fly despite being "obsolete". If you enjoyed R/C heli's before, pull out your stuff and enjoy.

Hello heli brethren.

In my case I even pull out other people's stuff and enjoy it. I mothballed my fleet in '91 to do life and family. Not only have I used pandemic time to get the veteran birds airborne, I'm having fun refurbishing second-hand machines acquired through this site and on eBay.

I know the feeling. I have been gone for 11yrs or so and nothing is the same. I am not even sure I can fly where I use to anymore. My down side is a sold off the fleet

I feel the same. All my Raptors are parked on the shelf. My kids don’t have the interest in that type of RC flying. I did pick up a couple DJI Drones and fly those with my kids for now.

I just got back into Heli’s 6 months ago from being away for 10years and the 1st bird I get is a used 600N. Back when I 1st got in the hobby I own a Raptor 30 the Raptor 50 the 2 600N’s. I love the nitro’s and the look of all the linkage on a flybar Heli. I just built a brand new 600XN as well

I am sort of in the same boat. I took a 10 year hiatus and have recently taken back to getting back into heli’s. I have picked up an TT X50 Titan, .50 SE, .50V2 have enough parts to last quite a few crashes. The problem is finding a few of those odds and ends like thrust washers in the blade grips, rubber canopy mounts to name a few. Another surprise is availability of heli fuel. There used to be quite a few fuel suppliers, and they are no longer around, wildcat Youngblood blend was what I was using when I stepped away. VP and Cool Power is about all that is left. There is a recent supplier called full pull fuels, haven’t had a chance to order any yet to try it, I am still in the process of rounding up 6.6 volt LiFe flight packs, and a voltage regulator to run with the 9254 Tail servosAMA 685330 IRCHA 3966

I can't believe someone wanted to play my game, since it is barely related to the original question(where has everyone gone).

Banshee Rider: Really nice try, but that quote (song title) from the musical OKLAHOMA is: Everything's up to date in Kansas City.

Here's a hint to move this along, so I don't hijack this thread: His most quotable phrase was: "M-O-O-N that spells ...."
