Talking HF swag no windsock??

Title says it all. I was just flying in what felt like 30 to 40mph winds. Handled it with a blade 400 no problem, even impressed myself just a bit. So I'm thinkin does HF sell windsocks on their swag site? Nope.

http://www.helifreakswag.com/

Chime in below if you might be interested. I'm not associated with selling swag on this site btw.

Default Multi-use HeliFreak item

Thanks for your suggestions!

For a "wind sock", one needs some additional components beyond the sock itself: a pole for mounting; a "hoop" to keep the sock open; arm(s) to the pole for the hoop; bearings on the arm(s) to allow the sock to rotate with the wind.

A friend of mine (Frank) looked into a permanent wind sock for our local field at OCMA in SoCal. It turned out to be a total PITA to come up with the "components".

I though about this a while back, and expected it would be too expensive to offer as a complete assembly. Would HeliFreaks accept just the "sock" and make the other components? Yeah, I know we're all crafty people or we wouldn't be into this hobby.

As a multi-use item, how about this? The HeliFreak logo on a velour or microfiber rectangular towel with two grommets on one of the short sides. It can become: (1) a bench towel, (2) a HeliFreak banner, and (3) a wind indicator. I realize it wouldn't react like an actual "wind sock".

Whatcha' think?

I'd like to see one blue or grey. That way they're not prone to stains too much.

Must not be too dark not to be on the hunt for screws either!

A windsock would be a fun project for a rainy weekend.
I do like the Idea for the towel as well a little bit oversize would be great.

I have 2 Hobbykings..Out of the box they won't work, however with the pivot joints I made...they are great..If HF offered one, I'd buy it...There are not many options out there that are not designed for a commercial airfields

I'm imagining a durable product, made from that heavy duty stuff that the real expensive kites are made from. And available in a smallish front yard size or a big Rc club field size. Using UV and weather resistant materials for the big one of course.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have the technology. We have the capabilities...

No, didn't give up. There is something Dark and Evil Lurking in the Mist. Just a little bit longer to wait and you may get your Wish.

There is something very Dark and Mysterious Lurking in the Mist. The really Cool People, you know who you are, are working on something special for all of you Helifreaks. Stay tuned and don't give up hope for something you have been asking for the past few years.

Happy Flying,

Dave
