On Jan. 23, 2003, I predicted the AT bankruptcy.
If the link doesn't work due to line wrap,
"Large numbers of HPR flyers who did not need an LEUP
will leave the hobby. The regulatory hassle just
won't be worth it.
Many HPR related businesses will fail.
This couldn't happen at a worse time for
Aerotech. When they finally do get back
into production, there will be an increasingly
dwindling customer base. They will file bankruptcy
within 18 months.
When this happens, mid-power is dead.
AT has a completely monopoly in F & G
If and when the lawsuit succeeds, there
will be no HPR left for it to save. It
will be a hollow victory."
Sooner than I expected.
It was a fun hobby.
