RCHNv3 EP6: Not Another IRCHA Discussion!

EP6 is a bit of a long one so grab an adult beverage. We would like to Thank James Kaddis, for coming on this week and helping us wade through some legal documents that talk a little bit about what had been going on at IRCHA.  We know, you probably are getting tired of hearing about.  But we feel its important to understand what has happened in order to help the hobby move forward with, hopefully a renewed sense of how to make things better.  This is the last one, talking about all the back and forth between those that have been on our show.  We will however keep you up to date with new progress as we hear it.   Thanks for taking the time to listen to RC Heli Nation v3. Enjoy!!!
