Default Leaving Team Compass

I have decided to leave Team Compass. Having been been a field rep and then a team pilot for Nankin Hobbies and for Comapss, this past year and had a lot of fun at shows and with the team. I will still be supporting compass products the best way I can. Still love compass helis.

This sure is a great group of reps and adds considerably to the fun experience of the birds. It can make a real difference in purchase decisions to know you can get help as needed, and confidence in the competency of the reps.

Thanks! Best wishes to you!

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.

My misunderstanding. I had always thought free parts was one of the perks of being a team pilot. Maybe I'm confusing "team pilot" with "sponsored pilot".

Most companies yes you will get parts free. Also with some companies there is different levels that some pilots get paid to fly for them. But with compass there still a small company that can't afford to pay pilots to fly for them. But the team pilots do get a very good discount on parts and kits.

I ate at a Bubba Gump's in, of all places, Breckenridge, CO. They served some of the best clam chowder I'd ever eaten. How's your clam chowder, Bubba?
