That was a flight for the camera for sure......lots of variety, everything was super precise and fluid, piro-flips were spot on, the whole flight was awesome! Definitely looking forward to it next year.
Yeah I had a awesome time talking wih ya Bob and can't wait until next time.The last few years I always flew center stage but this year I wanted to fly on the end,that way I could meet new faces and help if needed.All the new people and ones that aren't flying 3D stick to the ends of the flight line and never really walk to center so glad I flew at the end this year.
No biggie on not getting that flight..I never push myself like that unless my back is feeling good so wanted a warm up flight,then the wife was going to video..
After forgetting my tools and parts at home then the TT gear letting go,I kinda lost that feeling because it was getting late...Wanted to take wife and son to the carnival so worked out anyways...
Im super bad with remembering names but got to meet a bunch of other new faces,both days were awesome..Would still like to meet others and hope to do so at IRCHA ..

Here's 12 year-old Jacob Ramsey. He might be 13 now.

This young man is very mature for his age. He's a talented pilot, and his attitude should carry him far in whatever he does.

It was good talking with you, Jacob. I appreciate the time you spent with me answering questions about your heli and equipment.

He's a great pilot, and so is his brother. I like how it's a family thing with them. I'm more jealous of the family thing over his talent. Lol.

His mom is a great person to sit and talk with as well.
