There are a few ďfor saleĒ threads that say IRCHA delivery. Thatís just here. Pretty sure plenty of good used deals. Wish I had money to spend.

I just booked my hotel for Friday night. I'll see you wildcats on Saturday. 👌 I'm excited.

Saturday is the best day. There will be lots of demo flights and things I'm sure - assuming that it has returned to normal

Iíve been to about 4-5 IRCHAs before and was there today. Itís smaller than before (not surprising) but there were still lots of people that setup, vendors, and all the usual festivities. It was pretty easy to get some flight time in edges with little wait. Still a very fun event even if it not nearly as packed with people and vendors as before.

Covid - almost no international presence. The vendors that are there that are international have no actual company reps there. its all team pilots and the like manning the tents.

Great experience so far. Didn't video as many videos as I wanted but met with several people I was looking forward to and some surprises. If you're there meet me up at the far right end of the flight line.

Got to IRCHA on Thursday afternoon. What a blast! This was I believe my 5th trip to this event with the exception of last year. Was great to see some old friends, meet some new ones including Javier, and get some flights in. Terrific to see that so many brands are well represented too.

It was cool but everyone was killing it. Wherever you looked it seemed like only pros were flying at any given time. The level of skill was insane. I didnít want to continue flying after that with my poor skills. Have to hit the sim hard this winter. Everyoneís stepping it up.

The night flying on Friday was super fun. I sneaked in with the pilots to get a better view. I didnít like the Blade plane guys were invading the Heli zone but thankfully nothing happened.

After Chris Diamantiís flight I thought no one could step up but flight after flight everyone started flying amazing. As I said a lot of talent out there.

Wish I could have stayed for Battle of the Brands but had to drive back. Still was lots of fun. 14 flights across both days with no casualties. Learned also a few more tricks of setup and tuning.

Man so many awesome people in this hobby everyone super friendly. Was awesome to meet people face to face lots of new faces for me.

I also escaped nitro-free hehe.

Just got back to my hotel after my first IRCHA. What an amazing event! Definitely coming back next year.

Was a great event! Great to meet you Javier! Also, he is being modest with his flying skills. He could definitely hang with the other pilots there. Perhaps not the pros but the normal pilots for sure! I was happy to do my figure 8s and some funnels. Met a bunch of people in person including Javier and Ben (and his wife and his dog). Was a great time. I will, of course, be back next year!

Nice to see things are getting back to normal at IRCHA, compared to last year. I was dying to go but the Wisconsin tornadoes we had the week before kept me from going, tons of repairs and clean up...........next year for sure, I'll be there.

Nick Maxwell did indeed win. Was a massively good flight. Kyle Stacy a close second I thought. There was a tie for second but I forget the two pilot names they announced. Javier: Marco came in fourth (unofficially I guess but thats what I heard) for Egodrift

I was going to take a bunch of video and pictures but it turned out I was too lazy. Lord I wish I would have shot some video of the night fly competition. It was epic!

Wouldn't have known if I passed either one of you at any time, of course

Somehow got to meet 'Hobee' from Germany by chance, was pretty cool, and Cagedrv6, hope he finally gets/ or got his Oxy tail dialed in!

Got some good flying in and took all helis home in one piece. And didn't even take anything else home except a new battery and a give-away Scorpion work mat, which will come in very handy.

Another one in the books that was still very worth coming to yet again
