Default Charley Stephens leaving Outrage

Do I understand correctly that Charley Stephens is no longer with Outrage? It says so on facebook.

If that is the case I wish Charley the best, and thank you for the great helis and work thus far

This is bad news. I've just pre-ordered the Fusion 50 and am wondering if this project had anything to do with his departure? Anyway, good luck on the new venture Charley.

Charley leaving certainly is sad. His ideas were very innovative and I appreciated his designs. Too bad really!

Will be interesting to see how future launches go.

Well Louis Vuitton was a decent company till they got rid of the main designers and hired Marc Jacobs

Who in turned made the company what it is today.

Who knows what will happen and who Outrage hires next for the new design team.

We will have the best of both worlds now

Dang I just heard about this. What's going on here? Isn't Charley basically Outrage? I've not heard any other names. Who's in charge now? Has Outrage moved to Asia now? Really sad.

WHY did he leave? I want details!

Charley designed 6 helis (likely more) in 3 years. He has also worked on the Hyper and Evo mufflers, the Axis blades and who knows on what other stuff. Companies with entire teams of designers at their disposal haven't developed so many good products in so little time. Charley has done an impressive work. His designs made Outrage what it is today.

and to add to the above his interaction with us made outrage even better as we had a face/person to speak to /ask questions ...............so is outrage about to become like align you have no particular person to speak to...........................
