October is now half over! Time is flying by!!!

I'm back! Sorry for the delay, but not much is going on since last month. With the season changing, the weather has been erratic here in the Midwest for heli flying…windy, heavy overcast, dark, rainy, etc. Temps are cooling off, the leaves are beginning to fall, and the days are getting shorter, and for some reason… I’m not… I don’t have that drive to get out and fly?

Continued...

Wednesday…opening day, IRCHA 2015

The “big” venders, Experience RC, Heli Direct, Bobby Jack RC, and another from Tennessee were in full selling swing.

This year,...
